    I was gonna call in last tuesday to his show and ask if he wrote for the press gazette anymore or if he was jus a sesaonal writer, but didnt figuring that'd be rude.

    Well, not sure what this means, but his email has been either changed or removed.

    I enjoyed Havel, he was level headed and made a genuine effort to be easy on the fans.... His stuff was entertaining.

    Havel is usually good, but sometimes kind of silly. It's funny how these losers at profootballtalk, or whatever, are still bragging about their e-mail "battle" with Havel, in which he completely bitch-slapped them.

    Yeah, apparently every article Havel writes he's supposed to put a disclaimer that he co wrote two books with Brett otherwise he's a lame duck journalist. :tantrum:

    Bingo. Thanks Trom. Maybe Havel was good writer maybe he wasn't, but who cares? Oh, we do, it's the off-season.

    The guys saying this don't like the guy and have been wrong before.

    Perhaps Havel went on vacation when the season was over?

    Interesting. I wonder what happened with Havel. He had been at the Press Gazette for quite a few years, hadn't he? I expect him to resurface somewhere.

    I found the entire Cliff Cristl chat very interesting, although maybe he takes the "playmaker" theory a bit too far. With the Patriots, for example, I agree that Tom Brady is a special player, but he wasn't considered to be special until after he'd won two Super Bowls.

    I especially enjoyed Cristl's breakdown of the percentages of Hall of Fame or Pro Bowl players who are taken at different spots in the draft, and how that relates to the NFL's point value system:

    "It's possible the No. 1 pick could be a bust and that some day another sixth-round pick will be a Hall of Famer. But the fact is that you have a 33% chance of landing a Pro Bowl player at No. 16 and a less than 1% chance of drafting a Hall of Famer. With the No. 1 pick, you have about a 60% chance of drafting a Pro Bowl player and upwards of a 20% chance of drafting a Hall of Famer. So, again, there's nothing wrong with pipedreams. But there's a reason in the NFL point value system why the first pick is worth 3,000 points; the 16th pick, 1,000 points; and the 32nd, or last pick of the first round, 590 points. By the way, the 199th pick, where Brady was drafted, is worth 11.8 points. Then again, when Brady goes in the Hall of Fame, he may be the first sixth round pick to make it. So far, there haven'tbeen any."

    Last July He was caught taking home 8"x 10" copier paper.

    Last September he was caught taking an employees Tuna Salad Sandwich from the break room refrigerator.

    January compay officials found out he was using the company phone for a 1-866- dating introduction chat line. It was paper realized h had rung up a bill of over $400.

    He has been hired to cover the Bengals for a Cincinnati Newspaper.

    If you listen to 107.5 FM The Fan out of GB, he said he resigned from the Gazette because he wanted more freedom(along with other reasons).

    I never really liked his columns, but his Packer talk on the radio is pretty good.

    Just don't let him talk baseball...
