  • SPORTS MOMENT: Standing next to Steve Snapp on the sidelines of 1v2 in the THE GAME when Robiskie caught the go ahead TD right in front of us, 6 feet in front of us. In all of the craziness and celebration, Snapp was so far gone he didn't even realize we scored, added a level of comedy to my excitement i've yet to duplicate

You could put together an hour long montage for every draftnik of missed predictions. There isn't a single one who doesn't have egg on their face in that regard. Quite frankly, the Browns haven't earned my trust to do something opposite of the general consensus and not have me think it is a mistake. Drafting under Haslam has been abysmal. Sashi Brown has never led a draft before. DePodesta had never been in an NFL Draft Room before, and Hue Jackson has only been a head coach for 1 draft prior which wasn't memorable. Don't overthink it Cleveland. Spence or Jack.

College production? Because Coleman can't play every down right out of the gate. Hue admitted that they'll modify the route tree for him and he'll be able to get on the field while he gets up to speed. That sounds terrible for pick 15. As far as Jack, he should play this year it is the spectre of his long term durability that dropped him out. Urban Meyer vouches for Spence so he is good with me, and with the luxury of picks we have using it on a top 5 talent in rd3 and taking a chance that Smith pans out is well worth it in my opinion, especially for a team that lacks serious talent, and especially because Smith is from Indiana and could handle playing in Cleveland. Pick #32 has to be Jack or Spence. Anything else is a collasal failure.

I like the trading down, I'm not a fan of the Coleman pick it at all. He literally has never run a route at Baylor. He's a project at WR, Hue admitted as much. If what they were looking for was an explosive athlete to be molded, they could have picked up Braxton with one of their 15 rd3 picks. It's not that I don't like Coleman, it's that 15 was way too high and there are too many other receivers who will be as successful as Coleman in the league that can be had in rounds 3-4. That said, I would like to see Jack or Spence with 32, and Jaylon Smith with one of the 15 rd3 picks. There are a lot of impact players left on the boards, it's time to see the Browns step up and draft them instead of trading down or trying to outsmart the league. So far I give the Browns an incomplete grade, but it's teetering on Millen depending on what they do tonight. Also, I'd love to see them draft Connor Cook and ruin that fuckers career.

They reversed it? That's terrible, didn't even have the gumption to stick it out!

I wouldn't even suspect it from you, BvtW.

We have our differences, but you're no troll.

Only a jerkoff would DV someone who casts a vote for our committed QB (since 2013).

Get a life, troll.

Most are in it because they truly care....or did at one point before the system turned them into cynical jerks. Over the years I have watched many transition from bright eyed wanting to save the world to grumpy and defensive

I think this is unfortunately true for many professions, many professions that do require intelligence, drive, and passion to be successful only to end up ruining the individual who was once dedicated to the profession. I was dead set on being an attorney (have many in the family) and no matter what persuading Papa 07/10 tried to do it was only after seeing what law school and being an attorney did to my brother that led me to hit the abort button right before school.

The master's I ended up with and the profession I thought was going to be better was ultimately no better. I toughed it out for a decade before pulling the plug and starting my own business for many of the same reasons you stated Rockford.

I certainly didn't mean to rail on Doctors. It is aggravating from a patient's perspective regarding time, but the service provided is necessary and if that is the giveback patients have to deal with it, we probably should.

Let me say that I have an immense respect for the medical profession, they literally save lives.

Most docs didn't get into medicine for the money (some did). I just feel that you should be financially rewarded for spending literally a DECADE (often more) of the best years of your life working absurd hours training to improve the lives of others.

This is where I start to have an issue. Doctors are far from the only ones who go through years worth (if not decades) of training, working insane hours, and having continuing education classes to maintain their profession, that also impact lives on a daily basis. It isn't common practice for them to overbook clients/patients in the name of financial gain.

I don't disagree that doctors should be well compensated for the work that they perform, it just shouldn't come at the expense of patients' time. Patients who often don't make nearly what the doctor does, and are often using PTO time or losing hourly wages to come to the doctor. Furthermore, family practitioners (who I am chiefly discussing) offer a great service but are far from life/death doctors. OR? Trauma unit? Specialized doctor? I get it, and if you are visiting one of them, you will wait your turn.

Again, before you blame the docs try to understand the external pressures and costs that have influenced the way medicine is practiced. 

That's a valid point and I'll try and consider it, but only when doctors quit taking Fridays off to play a round of golf, quit driving the nicest cars in the parking lot, and start to live on the same financial level as the majority of their patients.

If I even knew a single family practitioner who was struggling to maintain middle or upper middle class status, I would give credence to your stance. All I take from it though is exactly what I thought, Doctors (FPs) overbook patients to make sure they continue to make their money.
