Saturday Niblets from around the net for 03/07/09

Best comment of the week from Jack Lochrie [Long-suffering Lions fan]
on Beware of the Combine Warrior
I have some unsolicited advice for the Lions: Ignore all of the underclassmen in the April college draft, regardless of their assumed future potential and press clippings. The seniors have an extra year or two of maturity growth that will serve them well in the teeny, tiny, remote possibility they will need to cope with some setbacks in their early years with the Lions. The Lions’s management needs to be focusing on building a winning team, without the distraction of providing day care for fragile egos.
Note: Martin Mayhew has not yet called me for my objective opinions on the draft. ;~)
