    Don't call someone else a dick because you fell for it. :icon_shrug:

    I think it's a bit of a dumb holiday but I'm nevertheless aware of its existence and keep that in mind when I read stuff on the internet on this day.

    That being said, I had my guard down and did fall for this one. Kudos to szarmes. I don't usually fall prey to April Fools Day jokes.

    I didn't have time to fake-write an article and provide a fake link at the bottom...i was in a rush to get to school. Maybe next year it will be even more realistic.

    You fooled me. I'd like to deny or simply not say anything about it, but that wouldn't be fair to you, nicely done.

    My 6 year old got me on both her attempts and now this.

    Does anyone know who the chargers would grab if they did get a middle 1st round pick. I think I do. And he's a saftey from texas. Who could possibly play both cb and saftey in the nfl.

    I don't think so. The chargers keeping talking about getting a better coverage saftey. They can still get a good d-lineman a bit later. I don't know much about the texas saftey. But I know the tennessee saftey is very good.

    It still seems somthing is gonna happen close to or at draft time. Something is up. NOt sure what.

    Back to reality here, there is a posible trade that could develop betweent he Chargers and Niners if Spiller is gone by the time they pick at 13.

    The Chargers could trade Sproles and the 28th pick to the Niners for there 17th, 79th, and 145th picks.

    That puts a value of Sproles at about a 40th pick in the 2nd round, which is about what I think he will be worth.

    I know its a possibility, that's why I knew people would fall for it. No doubt AJ is cooking something.. we'll just have to wait 'til draft day to see what happens

    That's what makes it so good.

    You can't just make up some unbelievable BS because nobody will fall for it.

    I remember a couple years ago I got a few people with a thread saying Michael Turner was traded to Oakland. Why? Because there were rumors of us trading Turner at the time.

    I probably could have gotten more people had I picked a different team but picking Oakland was still fun.
