More reason to not want Newton

Standard

Many National Football League fans are not fond of Auburn quarterback Cam Newton, because he appears to be a project quarterback since he played in a simplified offense.

Well those people now have some more ammunition.

According to Pro Football Talk, NFL Network’s Mike Mayock isn’t sure about how great Newton wants to be. The thing is Mayock has become one of the more respected people in the media when it comes to analyzing the NFL Draft.

What makes this noteworthy is that a person’s desire to succeed in the National Football League has to be high, because it is the best of the best and to be the best you have to train like the best. A example of this is monumental NFL Draft bust Buffalo Bills offensive tackle Mike Williams who was very talented, but was very lazy and didn’t have the desire to succeed.

Desire is also what makes Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady as great as they are.

In the end, if there is any doubt on Newton’s desire then that team needs to pass one him.

Nelson is an idiot

Standard

Minnesota Federal Judge Susan Nelson issued a ruling today that lifted the National Football League’s lockout of the players.

From what is being reported on the contents of the ruling, Nelson is clearly an idiot.

According to Pro Football Talk, Nelson in her ruling cited the public interest as a reason for lifting the lockout. The last time I checked the United States Judicial System was a series of laws not series of justice. Pretty much her ruling is like convicting someone of a crime, because the people said so.

Clearly, as much research as she did on the subject it wasn’t enough. If Nelson would have done her homework from previous legal disputes between the NFL and players she would see that the desertification of by the NFLPA is a sham as the NFLPA will reform once this is settled.

The thing is this fight isn’t far from over as the NFL will appeal the ruling to theĀ  Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. Most likely the case will go before the Supreme Court.

In the end, it is a sad day for the court system.
