The number 7 pick was part of a draft day trade so the 49ers could move up to pick an OT. That pick was not given to them by the league as part of their set draft, and it wouldn't be right for the league to take it away.The comish could take their draft away if he wanted to....
I am just a little upset that the super bowl runner-up is picking before US!!! and they were CAUGHT CHEATING!!!!!!!!!!1why should they lose that pick? taking away the other first rounder was punishment enough. i thought taking away a first rounder was a more severe punishment that what should have taken place
at the time during the draft, they thought (and so did everyone else) that the certain OT (i think charles spencer from central michigan but i may be way off) was a great value pick for that selection, and thought he would make a sudden impact.Blame the team that gave them that pick. I hate that team. Stupid 9ers gonna give up their first knowing how many elite prospects were going to be in the draft this season.
they are picking before us because they were willing to give up a first rounder in the 2007 draft. its not just like the league said, "hey, lets give you a free pick." its just that they were good enough to give up a first rounder in the 07 draft, just like the cowboys were in giving up the #22 to cleveland. these teams are good enough to do this, and still be able to contend. the saints for example, arent.I am just a little upset that the super bowl runner-up is picking before US!!! and they were CAUGHT CHEATING!!!!!!!!!!1
why is this done! you say you dont advocate cheating but what do you call what they did.They've lost their 1st round. What you're actually ****ed off about is that the Pats have the best F.O. in the League (although to be honest, I'm not sure even they expected to be picking 7th this year). I can understand that, it's natural to feel a certain amount of jealousy when a team does something better than yours, but let's be honest - the Spygate thing is just an excuse people use to bash the Pats. If it wasn't Spygate it'd be Belichick's lack of personality or the fact that Tom Brady is single handedly ***ing his way thru the entire female population of the U.S.
So hate them by all means, but give the spygate thing a rest for a bit.
Not advocating cheating, but seriously... It's done with.
