    Hey gang,

    About 45 minutes ago...Matt Millen made a comment about 'dumb pollocks from Philly' or something. As someone who's grandmother was 100% Polish (HER parents came over on the boat) I found nothing wrong with it. To make matters worse (I blame ESPN though more than Millen) he comes on later DURING the draft and apologizes for his comments that 'some could find offensive'.

    1. I took it as a joke.

    2. I also consider the apology Matt Millen's way (Even though it was probably forced) of screwing up yet ANOTHER draft!

    Am I the only one who thinks this way?

    (Apologies if this is on the wrong board)

    Mike

    I thought it was ignorant... But if a polish descendant HIMSELF didn't took it personal, it would be a HUGE demagogy for me to do so...

    Hey Mike, Millen knows less about football than your grandmother, whom I'm sure has failed to ruin any franchise. Also, Millen loves Brett Favre--another sure sign of his ignorance :)
