THE EXPANSION DRAFT
I loved how they tried to make a big media event out of the Houston Texans' expansion draft. With only one team drafting, the whole thing probably could have been done in a back room somewhere in 10 minutes, and I'm sure the entire list of players was set beforehand. And it's not like it's a big deal that teams could "pull back" players. The Texans coulsd always wait a round or two before selecting another player from that team -- it's not like they're going anywhere. I guess it's a way for the NFL to stay in the news after the season is over. As such ploys go, it beats announcing the contraction of two teams that everyone knows won't take place.
