I'm a Pisces. I'm an American, a curmudgeon, bug-a-boo, minimally invasive, banal, neat, staid, flummoxed, cocktoastin’, tall, effete, meaty, short, licentious, Pyrrhonian, buttocked, askance, live, overt, covert, stain-resistant, lost, dumb, reality-based, nonporous, kindly, septuagenarian meddling teenager.
Check out my mock draft
Check out my list of the top 10 NFL Draft steals in NFL history. Let me know what you think.
Apparently he is someone who demands respect. Or craves it. Can't tell.
I know what you mean. He is indeed the Roger Goodell of all commissioners, and that's saying something.
I hope the new headline is amenable to you, because I think it sets up readers to be in on the joke a little easier. The poll does, too, which is something I hadn't seen before because it doesn't appear in the Editor Queue.
Now I actually think it works pretty well as a zany humor piece. I think it just took me off-guard last time. You wouldn't believe how many people write out full names every time they mention a player, a coach, or a Roger Goodell.
Didn't realize it was your first article. You may revert the changes back.
In all honesty it was very funny, but only after I thought you had lost your mind or smoked something nasty before posting. I think people will think it's funny, but by the time I figured out your intent I had already edited out all the Roger Goodells, and the article was actually a pretty well-written update without them.
As for the tags, you may type in anything in the box and if there is a tag in the system it will come up. Give it a go.
Editorials and humor pieces are valued over breaking news and game recaps here, so in retrospect I should have restored it and re-edited it. I think it would work a lot better if it indicated early on that it was to be a silly article.
