you made the statement "I can't remember a year under this regime where they didn't draft someone to fill almost all (if not all) of the holes perceived that year going into the draft.". So I asked you to give me an example. Wasn't trying to draw you into a Kobayashi Maru conversation.I just don't remember us ever doing that. I always remember everyone bitching after every draft that we didn't fill this need or that need. Was just wondering if I was remembering wrong.

OK. I'll give you that.

I was referring to the draft sites that give grades after the draft; the ones that have two or three "needs" listed. For several drafts, I can remember looking at those things since Smith's first and those sites have showed us drafting someone for every major need. Although this gets into the whole "perceived" need thing and those sites' list of needs don't always jibe with the needs perceived by TT. Frequently on TT, if you were to create a list of needs, you'd have almost the entire team.

I don't have links to all those sites. I don't have links to even one of those sites because I didn't know beforehand that I'd need it to support my memory but there it is.
