    Some Bernie

    Still waiting for NFL permission, according to Jay Zygmunt, through Andy Strickland on Team 1380...

    can't talk to their guy yet...

    also: Rams have at least one offer for the No. 2 pick on the table...

    have heard from multiple teams (probably fewer than five)....

    --B

    They won't have a deal (contract) with Jackson done before the draft.

    They aren't taking McFadden, though.

    -B

    I'd imagine the Larry Johnson deal is a place to start...

    (signed for $19 million guaranteed, $45 mill overall, six years)

    --B
    On F.Brown--I think the Rams pushed the NFL to make a decision on the appeal... simply because of how his status could impact the draft...

    ALSO .... long time between now and training camp, now and the start of the season. They're holding their breath around here (Rams Park) that this guy lays off da cheeba...

    Wink

    --B

    Hmm, that's weird........it doesn't sound like, "I'm sorry, I pulled speculation out of my anal cavity and threw it out for the world to sniff even though it harmed an on-going situation with a player who the league has since exculpated. I should have waited to get the story correct instead of irresponsibly making inflammatory statements and innuendos. I'm a douche. Sorry, Fakhir."......but I'm sure that's what he meant.

    Re: Some Bernie

    Why do we post anything by Bernie? I'm the only person who respects him here. Everyone just calls him out for something that those who don't know him perceive him to be. He may be the most respected writer in the city, but because he doesn't say what we as a fan want him to we destroy him.

    It's easy to beat down someone you don't agree with. And it turns out there was some truth to another failed drug test.

    Huge difference....

    you relayed it as something that was official...

    and it isn't...

    it is speculative.

    --B
    Bernie closed the thread at that point because it was speculative.

    And after telling the world that Brown's suspension was fact, how does he face his own inaccuracies?

    Well come on, tx; I know you like the guy, but does he not bear some responsibility when he makes statements like...

    Re: Some Bernie

    If he was the only reporter on the Rams Beat to have said that then yes, but all of them were saying it. Even Howard speculated on it. Evidently, Brown flunked a test but got a bunch of lawyers together and won an appeal.

    So what that others said it? The point is he stated as fact that Brown would be suspended. He was wrong, yet bears no responsibility. And I don't know if Brown "got a bunch of lawyers together" or not, but it's irrelvant. Where Bernie said Brown's getting suspended, the NFL said he isn't.

    Come on, tx, buddy, pal.......it's not about shutting up. I just think Bernie gets a free pass everywhere except here. So when you stick up for him, I have to try to understand why.
