Then they probably don't need to be going to the NFL. Their whole lives will become open to the public. Going to the club? We'll know. Say something stupid on Twitter? We'll know. Knock up a few random hoes? We'll know. Fail drug tests? We'll know. Get arrested for DUI or making it rain? We'll know.


Either make it all open, or just close it off entirely which will be fine with me.

So you are saying that just because all of the physical activities in the combine are public, the Wonderlic test should be public as well? I think I would want to know specifically why should they be public, and not just a "just because" answer.

I think Claiborne's example is a good reason why it should not be public. When you get into IQ examinations, there could be a disclosure of some type of learning disability, which I think would be an invasion of privacy for the player.

I would be curious to know if there are guidelines and agreements in terms of what is private and what is not in terms of the Wonderlic and the team interviews with players. I would be curious to see if there are any stipulations by the NFLPA that allows for player privacy in these matters or if there are any NFL policies that protects player privacy.

I believe the NFL is not a public company, therefore I don't think the public is entitled to demand for information about NFL employees to be public "just because".

Re: 2012 NFL Draft Prospects

There's actually a lot, A LOT, we don't know. And it should (in my opinion) stay that way. More is known to the general public than needs to be known

No offense, but you still continue with your "just because" reasoning. In the end, all of the combine information is important for the teams to know and no one else. I believe if the NFL was a public company or funded by public money, then you could argue your "just because" reasoning, although even then I believe that are guidelines under the Freed of Information Act on what information can be made available to the public.

Then close off the combine to only teams and participants. Problem solved. I have 0 problem with that.

Re: 2012 NFL Draft Prospects

Very good article on Phillip Thomas the FS from Syracuse...(I'm gonna bet Phillip Thomas will be a Washington Redskin when the draft ends)

Will Syracuse Saftey Phillip Thomas join the Redskins? BMITCHLIVE

Absolutely... I wouldn't draft him with our 3rd rounder (B. Massie or Schwartz ), but if he's still available at #102, we should draft him... We could have 2 potential Wk. 1 starters in Massie/Schwartz and Thomas, and they both fill needs (RT, FS)

Thomas is decent, I think he had some problems at Syracuse ala Mike Williams...but I think he is a 5th-6th round guy and we should have several opportunities to snag him. He would play free safety which is very much a need.

Yeah hopefully his problems are behind him blame it on the youth. Would be a nice late 4th to 6th rd pick IMO.

Re: 2012 NFL Draft Prospects

Talkin about Phillip Thomas this article shows why he want to be a Redskin. Sean Taylor had a huge impact on this kid and therefore I believe he will run through a wall for this team!!
