We'll see how many people we get, but my idea is to have almost a NFL Draft Poem league. About every few days I'll post a type of poem (Haiku, Sonnet, etc.) Everyone then will post a poem using the right meter and rhyme scheme. People will then be judged by the meter, rhyme scheme and what they write about. I still don't know how I'm going to do the rules and if it's going to be the same people writing poems or whoever wants to.

Write your name if you have suggestions.

one i made several days ago
see if you can identify what it is about

no... let me explain.. in poetry



twas the night before sunday
and on nfldc
not a poster was stirring
not even keaky

The ratings were hung by the mock draft with care,

In hopes that St. Wright soon would be there;

The posters were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of bowl-games danced in their heads;

And hack in his 'kerchief, and hack in his cap,

Had just given scott Wright a verbal slap

When out in off topic there arose such a clatter,

I sprang from team boards to see what was the matter.

The mods read his posts soon, and in a flash

hack got his *** booted for having no class

I've got a few

'the first day' by D.Snyder

As the first day draws nearer his forehead goes moist
How to get rid of these picks that I hold?
Can't give them away we'd look silly and mad
Can't keep them though, for this first day I scold
So I shall not bend, no I shall persevere
But I must hurry, for the first day draws near
Alas it seems I shall be forced to pick
A guy on the first day, the thought makes me sick
Thank the lord after one pick I won't pick again
For having young talent's not part of my plan.


"50% succes rate" by Matt Millen

Another year another selection
again very tempted to go for reception
But should I? I have tried it so many times
And two out of three choices suddenly spring to mind
One was oft-injured, never got to play
The other was lazy, it pains me to say

Yet this new one may not be
As bad as those two
And who cares if everyone
Thinks I'm a fool?

Yes I will prove them wrong and pick a reciever again
For if all goes well he'll be like superman
So yes I shall choose a pass-catcher once more
And then pray to god for a two out of four.

I'll just enter mine I turned in for English:

For several months, I have waited
Just to know my team’s selection.
My thirst for the draft must be sated
Time it seems, has no direction.

The 28th is the day,
When it begins at last.
I will have to find a way
To wait like in the past.

The Eagles need one
Ready for the pick’n.
The only solution:
Michael Griffin.

The NFL Draft draws close,
But it still appears far.
Fans seem quite verbose
As they crowd ‘round the bar.

The offseason is very tough
On the average football fan.
Lacking football is so rough
Many fans, like myself, make a plan.

Mock drafting is the name of the game
It passes the time, but it is daft.
My situation remains the same
Impatiently waiting for the draft.

We traded with division rivals
and i just chuckle
while the fat Carebare. Carebare=F***
Loosens his buckle

We draft Kevin Kolb
hopefully McNabb gets a hint
he is taking your job
and to the Bears McNabbs sent

for a first round pick
and a second or two
McNabb the prick
no longer wearing a Eagle shoe

With our luck
He'll play fresh and new
making Reid say Carebare
what the hell did I do!?!

McNabb is a joke
Can't win the big one
Seems like he's a choke
Time for a young gun

Kolb wins the Superbowl
McNabbs bowl is chunky soup
Kolb knows how to win
McNabbs poop.

The best part is that he got an infraction for his poem.

It was well deserved. He deserves to be penalized for saying something that idiotic and nonsensical.
