  1. Klopp terribly weak in his interview pre-match interview. Missing the point entirely by telling fans to get behind the team too. Seemed more angry at Leeds' t-shirts than the whole situation. Really poor.

    Counterpoint: Outside of their cities... who wants to watch Burnley vs. Brighton?  

     

    US analog would be if Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State, Notre Dame attempted to break away from their conferences for a superconference.  

     

    Again, I understand tradition and this negates the domestic leagues.... but the high quality of football and teams involved.

    I'd much rather watch Burnley v Brighton in a game that means something than Arsenal v Leipzig in a dead rubber given there's no relegation. 

     

    It's not about that though. These clubs still have fanbases and everything they dream of (ie getting into europe and competing against the best teams) is being torn away from them. It's a disgrace. 

     

     

    The main thing is that these clubs aren't earning qualification on the pitch. They're earning qualification because they're rich and have the opportunity to only get richer. It genuinely sickens me to the core.

    I know why it's bad for tradition. 

     

    But if the top 15 teams are winning and carrying the teams, driving the international viewers and paying most of the player salaries, why doesn't this make sense?    Is FIFA, UEFA, etc. going to lecture clubs for making money?  

    Goes completely against the integrity of competition. Imagine if the NFL expanded the salary cap for only the 6 most profitable teams? How would that be fair on the rest?

     

    Premier League currently has Leicester and West Ham in the champions league spots. How is it fair on them to give worse run teams hundreds of extra millions to get back ahead of them? It absolutely stinks. 

     

    It's embarrassing that the likes of Liverpool, Spurs, Arsenal etc would rather create a new competition that they're included in than concentrate on winning more games to get ahead of the likes of Leicester and West Ham who are taking chunks of their revenue by beating them. 

  4. Jets finalised draft. 

     

    #20 Jaelan Phillips, Miami, DE

    #23 Rashod Bateman, Minnesota, WR

    #34 Jaylen Mayfield, Michigan, OT

    #66 Jevon Holland, Oregon, S

    #86 Paulson Adebo, Stanford, CB

    #107 Jamar  Johnson, Indiana, S

    #146 Demetric Felton, UCLA, WR

    #154 Victor Dimukeje, Duke, Edge

    #186 Darrick Forrest, Cincinnati, S

     

    Jets also gained:

    Chicago's 1st round pick 2022

    Chicago's 1st round pick 2023

    Chicago's 2nd round pick 2023

    Houston's 2nd round pick 2022

    Houston's 3rd round pick 2022

    Houstons 5th round pick 2022

     

    Still in an alternative universe, the Jets give their backing to Sam Darnold and gain a big haul instead of taking a QB early in order to continue the rebuild. Would've liked a QB to fall to me in the right spot but the value was never there. Also would have liked to address the O-Line more but I see the Jets as being solid in the tackle positions and Mayfield playing guard at the next level so should be ok. Delighted with the improvements made to the secondary especially which has been a car crash position in recent times for the Jets. Very happy overall. 

     

    Also big thanks to @COWBOY-KILLA- for all the graft and @goskins10 for helping keep things flowing smoothly. Felt like one of the smoothest years yet with very few delays.

  5. The NY Jets select Demetric Felton, WR, UCLA.

     

    He's definitely undersized and will probably be limited to only seeing the field on certain packages deployed as an RB or slot WR but god is he electric with the ball in his hands. Nice gadget piece for a Jets offence that's badly in need of a spark.

    Having no consequence to trading a first for, say, three 4ths isn’t exactly realistic. :ols:

    Well in that situation the trade would be veto'd though that's the point. 

     

    There is consequences for each future pick traded too as long as when those who have given up picks state that at the end of the draft beside their list of drafted players. 

     

    I just think 99% of trades done here are fair and realistic ones. We're basically scrapping trades because of one bad one a few years ago. Seems a bit OTT to me.

    Waiting for people to veto will slow things down even more. Just no future picks. It's a fun mock draft, why complicate it?

    Yeah true it could make things messy but the really big ones generally only happen within the first 10 picks anyway. It's generally plain sailing after that so I don't think it'd really delay much at all. 

     

    No future picks just takes away from the process completely for me tbh. The more realistic we keep things the better. 

  8. I think the way we have it this year is the best compromise tbh. Taking away future picks altogether makes it too unrealistic.

     

    I think maybe an option going forward would be to give teams unlimited ability to trade future picks but if say over 3 GM's deem a particular trade unrealistic there is an option to veto the trade.

    Y'all act like every large slow WR can become the next great TE, the same way we used old CBs to become the next great FS like we did with DeAngelo Hall.

    Massive difference between trying to move an old washed CB to being a starting FS and moving a young 23 year old WR to TE though. We did it with Niles Paul previously and our current best TE literally transitioned from QB lol. It's not a reach to think Harmon can do it too. 

  10. NY Jets select Pat Freiermuth, TE, Penn State. 

     

    Some might think it's a slight reach but I really like this guy. Got all the tools to be a really good TE at this level as both a receiving threat and a good blocker. Just might take him a couple of years to out it all together but the Jets on the rebuild have that time to develop him in a position of need.

    I kinda hate these because unless it’s all carrying over it’s pointless. I can offer a dozen first rounders to move up if it doesn’t count 

    Up to everyone to give it the necessary weight come the end of the draft and I'm including two extra first rounders in my haul I suppose. I think it's a realistic trade on both sides though.
