It seems to me that there is a strong movement here for some BGN readers who want to rehab every ex-con and problem child in the League in order to get some experience on the team. Look at recent history - One guy is promoting Pacman Jones, another is pushing Ben Rothelsrapist, and we already have Michael Vick. Now I want experience on the team as much as the next guy, so why not just save some money and field an entire team with current convicts? I mean, we could get some quality guys from the prison systems - through work release, of course - and we would be able to pay them less than minimum wage. If you add in the mental halfway houses we could get T.O. and Freddie Mitchell back for nothing. Then we could fill whatever gaps there are in the depth chart with torn ACL's and back injuries.
Thing is, on a budget like this, BGN could band together and field an entire NFL team with shared beer money. We could use the parking lots by the link for practice. That should toughen their knees up. Pads? Helments? Who needs that crap? That's for healthy guys and non-convicts. On the BGN team you EARN your pads. Maybe Vick could be allowed one or two if he can steal them. Anyone have a football we can use?
We can charge obscene prices for the tickets and outrageous prices for the Jerseys. Doesn't matter what color they are, so long as they have stripes. Then we'd be rich and we could rule the world. Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha!
Now we need a name for team. Any suggestions? (Oh boy did I open myself up for abuse with this one!)
