I heard this morning they have SF's first round pick. Are you kidding me?
the Niners traded it to move up into the first round of the '07 draft and take Joe Staley.
The Commish better do something, or this will be a huge fumble. You cant take the 32nd pick and leave them the 3rd to 4th. Freakin terrible. Nice way to make em feel it. "As your punishment, you must draft McFadden..." What a joke.
you can't take away the Niners pick. one is enough.
That's what happens when you want to trade up....not the Pats fault, they could win the SB and end up with McFadden. Sick.
I'm glad the Browns turned their season around since the Cowboys have their 1st round pick.
It should have been their highest pick. They should keep the 31st(with adjustment for the 3rd disapearing) and lose the 3rd-5th.
they did lose their highest pick. the Niners pick they traded for is the Niners' highest pick.
You can not take a pick away that they traded for that is stupid. You have to take away their own pick.
This was all hashed out months ago, sorry they made a smart trade that is what teams have to pay for when moving up into the first round.
That is the Patriots via trade. I just think its kinda silly to tak3 the 32nd ish pick and leave a team with the 3rd-5th. Way to send a message. I get what your saying, but its kinda silly.
indeed. they legally traded for that pick. it'd be like telling them to release Randy Moss as a punishment.
how is it silly?
just think about it, if they took away the Niners pick, that would mean they're punishing the Niners. because the draft pick is decided based on the Niners record, and let's just say the Niners finish with the worst record in the NFL, and thus the #1 pick. and that would affect the rest of the NFL, because, let's just say Miami has the 2nd worst record, then Miami is picking first. or if San Fran finishes with the 6th worst record, then that pick is forfeited so a team that was 7th now moves up to 6th, etc...it just changes the entire landscape of the draft, and if you're going to punish the Patriots, you can't punish them by proxy of where the Niners finish up. it just doesn't really make sense.
Agreed. Spygate aside, you can't punish New England for having a good front office.
But its not the Niners pick anymore, it belongs to the Patriots. They took ownership before the incedent, not afterwords. So, it is their pick aquired via trade months before they wrere caught. Its silly to say its not the Pats when in fact it is.
the pick is still affected by the Niners' season.
Yes indeed, the rich keep getting richer........
Dallas gets Clevelands #1 pick, they just made a good decision based upon not having a complete moron running the team for a few years like casserly, oh crap I need to go take a shower now that I gave dullas a compliment.
Goodell could have easily worded it as their highest pick, period. And IMO, should have. This is like the $15,00 fine. A joke in light of circumstances.
Yeah, no argument there, but it still is owned by New England. By this logic, if NE had traded their pick to somebody, they would have lost it when NE got the punishment.
i like the notion that losing a 1st rounder is a "slap on the wrist."
No no no no If NE had traded their pick. The commish would have just taken their next first round pick in 09
