Originally posted by young9er:OK. As I think about it, I believe the fair compensation would be for the Jets to lose draft picks to the 49ers commensurate to the draft point value of #10. Therefore, whatever the value chart says, the 49ers get their choice of a combination that equals that value...unless MC signs here. In that case, the Jets lose a pick and the 49ers get a supplemental for their loss of value this year of the tampering.Originally posted by dj43:Originally posted by E-49er:Most likely scenario is the Jets LOSE a pick and the 49ers get a supplementary 3rd rounder. The 49ers will NOT get a pick from the Jets. The Jets will get punished by LOSING a pick, nothing more.Originally posted by Bejaard49er:
“An investigation will be conducted, and the league will appoint two security managers from other teams to handle it”.
It is two security managers from other teams not GM read the quote above from the article.
I agree with you about the West Coast bias the NFL and media especially SI and ESPN. Great example is Chris Mortensen and his bus tour. Plus, how often do we read an article about a Niner player and they don’t even bother to spell his name right or know what position he plays.
I think Goodall is taking this very seriously to appoint two security managers (did same thing in NE case) from other teams. Generally NFL security managers are ex-FBI or Secret Service and know how to run an investigation. An investigation like this one is expensive and will cost the NFL $100-200K or more. I don’t think they would spend those kinds of dollars (especially when laying off NFL employees) if something wasn’t of interest to them. Think about this imagine your teams guy being selected what a great opportunity to find some good evidence on another team that you can keep to yourself over and above the tampering charges. Teams have to be lining up for this deal I know I would. This situation is getting to much attention and because the Niners know what the NFL is looking for in a tampering case (the Bears) one must assume they have some pretty damaging evidence. The article also makes several good points about Crabtrees attitude and in the middle of negotiations the price went up which sent red flags soaring with the Niners.
Deion is an NFL employee and he will be on the hot seat would love to be a fly on the wall for that conversation. Everyone knows the there was tampering way to many article coming out with new information plus the Jets and Ryan went over board in denying the allegations.
If this goes the Niners way we could end up with a boat load of picks in what is shaping up to be potentially one of the best draft classes in the last 20 years. If 10 teams are really interested in Crabtree we could get a 1 or 2 along with another pick by trading him, the Jets 1 plus another one of there picks. Could you imagine having 4 1st round picks could fix a lot problems fast?
Don't get too excited bud. Even if we get a boat load of picks for this. The reality is that we are not keeping them all especially if we get one or two first rounders. If we have 4 firstround picks, where are we gonna get the money to sign them? You're talking about 30-40 million in guaranteed money. If we get picks,don't be surprised if we trade it for a proven player if the picks are in this years draft or we defer the picks to the 2011 draft.
I don't know if that works though. Then you could tamper with another teams 1st round pick in your division if that player was an awesome talent and try to talk him out of signing, and if you get caught you loose your first round pick too but lets say you were already a playoff team, then you loose a late 1st and they loose a top 5. It would be a win-win for you regardless of if you got caught.
