That person would be "keelhauled out of there so fast they would'nt know what hit them". Would be fun though, would'nt it?
That was me. And it would have to come with the strict caveat of keeping your trap shut. I wanted to view for myself how things work...with their draft board, decisions, trade calls. There is no other way to be able to really understand how a team comes to the decisions it does.
I could have easily sat there annd said nothing had I been in that room (although I was screaming mad in the chat room
). Because when the trade was made, a discussion would have taken place afterwards which would have made things very clear long before the picks were ever made. Ypu wopuld have heard the EXACT reasoning they used to accept the trade and who they expected to be able to take. For all we know, Graves says: "Hope McDougle is there but if not we are going to grab Pace". That would have made everything more understandable (I presume there would have been a longer discussion about the scenario then I presented) but since we aren't privy to all that is going on, we fly off the handle over the picks (like I admit I did).
