Rene Dupre as the number one pick??!? why not Randy Orton or Batista or something!?!?

GO- wanna make a long term trade? I will trade you my #1 for yours for Season 4. Basically we are betting on which of our teams will have the better season. If you think its yours then the trade is perfect.

And yeah, repicking guys is boring but if they are the best on the board what can you do.

thats an intriguing bet... but I finish last in everything I do, so its probably not a good idea for me...

anyone have any interest in Rhyno? I have had that jerk for two seasons - and the last two shows when it doesn't matter he gets a Heavyweight Title AND US Title shot... amazing.

Goat? ATrain maybe? Mike D?

I don't have a clue... I did't think that all out.

Maybe something with Lance... but let the draft play out and then we can work something out. I don't really want Orlando back and I can't acquire someone who isn't gonna score - cause my bench is gonna be filled with the waiting of injured All-Stars Brock and Gail Kim.

I really wanted to use him to get someone in the tag team picture, la resistance, bashams etc OR a female in the womens title picture... maybe someone will want Rhyno and a swap of last round picks or something. I don't know...

I am just tired of holding him on the one hand - but on the other - it seems like he is getting an opportunity lately so maybe I should hang in... I've waited this long. :)

I like getting Bischoff at this point.......my 7th man. Covers for injured guys as a slow but sure point-getter. Isn't Steiner injured? If so, at least I have an able bodied TV-replacement.

I just remember I was in this league with 2 Cowboy fans...

Is there anyway I can change my team name to "Keyshawn won't help"?

we can all change our team names, and if you don't see the difference between Keyshawn and Galloway, you don't know football...it starts with the phrase "not afraid to go in the middle"

He didn't say there weren't differences between them......we all know Keyshawn has the bigger mouth. He said "Keyshawn won't help" which is another issue.

Will Keyshawn mean more wins? Maybe. Maybe not. Still need a Qb, Rb, etc..

Keyshawn sucks. Get a decent QB. Get a decent RB.

Hurt his shoulder more than 6 weeks ago when Benoit put him in the crossface. Understandably, big Mark just doesn't have the flexibility in the joint to endure that move. I bet the crossface, as Benoit applies it, doesn't even hurt a guy who is young and flexible and not so muscular, like someone built like Randy Orton.

This from TPWW:

WWE.com has announced that Mark Henry will undergo shoulder surgery tomorrow with Dr. James Andrews due to an injury that he has sustained.

The official website is reporting that the injury occurred during his match with Chris Benoit on RAW for storyline purposes. However, the match and the Crossface finish were designed as a reason to give Henry time off from a pre-existing injury.

Nevertheless, the surgery is scheduled for tomorrow and Mark Henry is expected to be out several months.

Several months could be our entire season.
That is why I stayed away.
This was dated 4 Feb 04.

Henry's a great last round pick if you aren't dependant on using him. Its been shown time and again that he gets pushed far beyond what he deserves, so even if you're just holding him for Season 4, he should provide some nice returns for you at some point.

I have to say I didnt like the cowboys getting Keyshawn. I would have much rather seen them go after someone like travis henry or corey dillon. Also instead of shooting for drew Henson I would have liked to have seen them trade up for eli Manning or phillip rivers or someone like that. I guess there is nothing we can do about it, but thats what I would have liked.

report on Faarooq:
Despite all other rumors and theories, the major reason Ron Simmons was fired was due to what was originally reported, WWE asked Simmons to enter rehab for his alcohol problem, and he declined
