Since I was out at Saints Camp, working my other job producing WWL radio’s Draft Fest, I kept a running journal of the day’s festivities. It’s a whole new world without the big man—Buddy D....


5:50 p.m. – Saints just took safety Josh Bullocks of Nebraska. My first thought was, “What the $#%?� Maybe they forgot they signed Dwight Smith in free agency? Then again, Jay Bellamy is 50-years-old and if they have an injury, do you really want Mel Mitchell or Steve Gleason taking a lot of snaps? Me neither.

For all you people wanting Georgia linebacker Odell Thurman in round two, remember this: the guy reportedly flunked three drug tests and one Saints front office person wanted the team to take him off the draft board completely. In other words…Thurman might have more drugs in his system than Keith Richards did at Woodstock. The guy likes to party, so New Orleans might not have been the best spot for him.

he had some definite red flags-
mother died in a car crash when 10
alcoholic father died in 2003
kicked off team as a freshman for breaking rules and a barfight
underage possesion of alcohol the next year
dispute with a girlfriend last year
suspended for 3 games

no known flunking of drug tests though. these are officially reported like dt hawthorne.

sounds kinda like a young ray lewis. marvin lewis must have thought so too.

????
He wasn\'t on trial for the murder, he was on trial for being an accessory and not cooperating with the law.

I never said I didn\'t want Thurman on my team. He was my 2nd favorite choice. You just assumed I did because I posted an article about his reported drug problem.
Where did I say I didn\'t want him?

Imagine that. Someone assuming the intent of another poster\'s post. Why, that would never happen around here.
