Let the Rumors Rain Down

<I>Singing in the rain, just singing in the rain!<BR> What a glorious feeling, it's draft time again.<BR>I'm laughing at Steelers, so ugly and goofy.<BR>The draft's in my heart, and I'm ready for, um, lunch.</I><BR><BR> Ah, forget it. I can't write lyrics any better than I can dance. Here's today's rumor.. er... newswire wrap-up.

Remember, back in the distant old days of 2000, when so many people thought that the Internet would change the way the world works forever?

Like so many epochal changes, the Internet's impact hasn't led to a paradise of free love (for me, anyway) and free information (except for Bernie's Insiders subscriptions, which are such a great value they just seem free), but rather has insinuated itself into the mainstream in subtle and irritating ways.

The "era of free information" finds itself strewn with pop-up billboards and blinking ads packed so densely that it's hard to find the stuff you came to read. Other folks, like us, ask for an entrance fee to get at everything. These are the ways that capitalism turns technological coolness into expected, sometimes mundane, parts of our lives.

Another subtle way that the information revolution has changed our lives is the way that the lines between print, broadcast, and Internet media have blurred, particularly over the past year: BerniesInsiders.com grows a print magazine. Newspapers get websites with their own blinking ads. Print guys get web sites. Web guys get print columns. Try to make it through a local broadcast without a web site getting pimped. Just try.... or don't.

The crowning glory of muddled indistinguishable media, of course, is when the print media starts running Internet rumors as legit news stories. Or uses those irresponsible Internet guys as a way to talk about the same fun subjects.

Let us not worry about how the journalistic approach of all media, like water, tends to flow continually downhill. At least not now, with the draft upon us. Let us instead put on Gene Kelly's dapper raincoat and sing our joy at all the football rumors which are raining down around us.

Rumors, after all, are fun until someone gets their eyes poked out. Let's go:

  • Butch Davis himself starts it off by saying that there could be 2-6 trades before the Browns even pick in the first round. I call mongering.
     
  • Steve Doerschuck in the Canton Rep speculates that the Browns might trade down with the Bills at 23 or Titans at 28 so that they could grab a defensive lineman and the Browns could snatch up more picks, possibly one to be spent on Wayne Hunter or Jeff Faine.
     
  • Doerschuck also hinted the Browns might go after Sammy Davis at #21, and gets from NFL.com's Gil Brandt a bunch of names that the Browns are interested in. Looks like Gil's been reading some of Lane's columns.
     
  • The Plain Dealer's Tony Grossi offers up that the Bills "might be inclined" to trade up with the Browns from 23 since they could get a defensive lineman there. He thinks the Browns could get a number five choice. The column is titled "Rumor Mill".
     
  • Grossi then goes on to talk about other rumors, but they aren't about the Browns, so I don't care.
     
  • The ABJ's Pat McManamon joins Grossi in saying rumors about Dallas trades of Couch and White offered by TheInsiders and the Associated Press have "no validity". Pat's one of my favorite writers, but we'll stand by our story.
     
  • The ABJ also reports that Jamir Miller's contract situation will linger beyond the draft.
     
  • The Plain Dealer's Roger Brown reports that the Browns have done security snooping around Eric Steinbach, Dallas Clark, and Bruce Nelson. Brown has been pimping Nelson as a Browns pick for a while. If the Browns pick him, I will back-slap Roger Brown on these pages.
     
  • The PD also has an article about Dave Ragone. Who was the first to say the Browns were interested in him... don't remember... it was way back in January and my memory isn't so good these days.... it was probably one of those infernal web sites. (shrug)
     

This is just too much fun. We'll have a live draft ticker this weekend on both Saturday and Sunday, along with live updates of all picks by round and by team.

Of course, there will be a lot of Browns fans in the Bernies Insiders chatroom this weekend. It will be fun to see if we can get over the 200 people we had in there last year.

We've got a whole set of plans following the draft, including full coverage of camps, new features, and another commentate-off, but I'll hold onto those until the time is right. Let's just say we're committed to keeping up the heavy volume of material that we've had in 2003 straight up until training camp starts up.

The next two days are some of the best every year to be a Browns fan. See you this weekend...
