View Full Version : Can you say Rules don't apply AGAIN

Once again the "rules" do not apply to the Cheatriots.

NEW YORK (AP) -- The NFL will look into teams revealing their draft picks on their Web sites and through Twitter even before commissioner Roger Goodell might have announced the selections.

The San Diego Chargers plan to post their picks this weekend on their Web site as soon as they hand in the name card. The information could show up on the site before Goodell gets to the podium.

New England also plans to use Twitter to announce its picks in real time.

"After the draft, we will review how the teams are announcing their picks and determine whether we need to develop a policy," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Friday.

The Patriots already are publicizing how their fans could get draft information before the rest of the football world.

"We might even get a few draft picks out via Twitter before they are announced on TV, so any Patriots fans following the draft closely are encouraged to begin following RealPatriots on Twitter," Patriots spokesman Stacey James said. "Of course, this is the first time we are attempting this, so it should be interesting."

What rules are in place against this? I don't see any...and since they are handing the name in at the appropriate time, I don't see why they can't announce it moments before it's done on TV.

What's the big deal about revealing the picks before jackass announces it anyway?

Yeah, I don't care about this.

Pats had a good draft. The question is, will drafting well help them overcome the huge obstacles in front of them, namely actually having to play the games without any of the advantages they've had over the last 7-8 seasons?
