    I think TJ will at least be on a practice squad this year. I think he could stick as a reserve WR for a while, but am not convinced he is starting caliber.

    Looking at mock drafts post-combine, they have DJ all over the place. I've seen him projected at #13 to Miami, #28 to the Chargers (which would actually be a great spot for him to back up Rivers for a couple years and would put him on a team I can actually pull for), to out of the first round entirely. Of course, I put minimal stock in these mock drafts because every single one I saw had the Panthers passing up on NC State's Bradbury to address the need at center, usually in favor of a different spot on the OL or a defensive end. If Bradbury is there for the Panthers and they pass on them they are absolute fools and I'm going to be close to done with the franchise.

    Not exactly. Sterling made his money from low-income housing in LA. As an NBA owner he was a cheapskate and did very little to develop what can be a valuable franchise.

    Daniel Snyder was a marketing genius and made $1 billion (or so) by the time he was 30. The NFL encouraged him to become an owner. He spent money like crazy but didn't know what he was doing, even so far as to not know whom to ask for advice or how to hire a GM. I think the Skins are a more professionally run operation these days, but this is 20 years of wasted opportunities.

    I have nothing personal against Donald Sterling -- although OMG! I have something personal against Daniel Snyder. About 20+ years ago, I was doing a winter hike along the C&O canal west of DC -- a national historic park. It was all woods on the inland part of the canal, and also between the canal and the Potomac and across the river. Then I came upon a gleaming white house, totally in the open. Daniel Snyder had bought the property and cut down the trees -- national park, Maryland laws and regs notwithstanding. He just paid the fine. All so he could have a view of the Potomac Valley from his house. Of course, upstream and across the river, when Donald Trump bought the Lowe's Island Golf Club to create Trump National, he also cut down all the trees along the river -- and this for a half-mile or so.

    Sage, I don't like trees on the courses I play either. Do you? GoDuke!
