    BLACKSBURG -- Danny Coale's mind was awash with thoughts once a number with a Texas area code came up on his phone during the final day of the NFL Draft on Saturday.

    He couldn't help but think of the prank call a Rutgers receiver got two days earlier, informing him he'd been drafted when he had not.

    When Coale answered, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was on the other end. The Cowboys were about to select the Virginia Tech wide receiver in the fifth round with pick No. 194.

    "When you talk to Jerry Jones, you hear his voice and know it's him, it's such a thrill," Coale said. "It's so awesome."

    Could you imagine that nightmare?

    Let's say you have a family member or a really good friend who is lucky enough to be drafted into the NFL. And they get drafted by the Washington Redskins.

    That would royally suck.

    I think he's definitely going to make this team... Runs very good routes and has great hands.

    That's exactly what happened to my neighbors. When I was leaving in Richmond, Va. back in the mid 90's, my neighbors were huge Cowboy fans. We used to watch all the games together, whether at my house, their house or the local Holiday Inn that had a sports bar in it. Their son played football for the University of Richmond Spiders. He was drafted in 1998 by the Washington Redskins. His name is Shawn Barber.

    He also had a stints with the Eagles.

    I remember him.

    What do you do? Do you become a Redskins fan? Is that even possible to just switch sides like that?

    And why wouldn't they... a LOT less stressful.... so much drama with that bunch...

    They measure success on beating us... they are an annoying fly to us... I could care less about them...

    Now, I like a few of their fans that post here... nothing on them... but most Redskin fans need to get a life...

    WE DON'T CARE... We really DON'T... Most of us are Texans... we have our own lives...

    We couldn't care less about the Redskins... but I'll keep some of their posters...

    The obsession they have with us is, frankly, comical...

    WE DON'T CARE...

    My son cried when he asked who I'd root for if he were drafted by the Redskins.

    The Barbers had a draft party as they knew he was likely to be drafted. After the Skins drafted him in the fourth, his father toasted him by saying, "I love you as you are my first born, but I love the Cowboys more". Everyone was laughing their behinds off. And his father was true to his word as he even rooted for the Boys even when they were playing against is son. Mom's another story though.

    On a side note, Shawn and several of his teammates had to travel to the University of Virginia for their pro day in which the Cowboys had scouts there. He was telling us how the Cowboys scouts were raving about Randy Moss, which they had attended Marshalls pro day the day before. By that I just knew we were going to take him with the 8th pick. The rest is history. :bang2:

    It would suck but I'd have to root for whatever team my son played for. I make no bones about that. My family is far more important to me than my favorite sports team.

    If my son were blessed to play in the NFL and he got drafted for the hated Eagles I'd be the biggest Eagle fan on Earth for as long as he played for the team.


    And, no, I don't feel bad about that in the least.

    Luckily for me, I just have a girl ... and she knows better than to cross that line.

    If I had a son and he was drafted by the Redskins, I'd have to tell him it's time to make use of his degree.

    If my son ever was drafted by the Eagles (and he has no athletic ability, so this is just an exercise in futility LOL) me being a fan would be akin to taking up satan worship! Sorry, just could NEVER root for them! And if the choice between being an Eagles fan and satanic worship ever came up, well......where's the nearest pentagram!

    I keed I keed. :laugh1: But still, I could never ever fathom rooting for them!

    The son of a friend worked for the 'Skins. What really sucked was when he would wear his son's SB rings and wave them under my nose!
