    Rob, thanks for the corrections in the Michael Bush article. Just to ask could you examine another one for me?

    Hey Rob,

    I am one of the two NFL community leaders here at Bleacher Report, if I haven't introduced myself to you yet, Hello!

    There will be a contest here at BR involving NFL writing. The format will divide the contestants into divisions where they will face off head-to-head each week and tally an overall record throughout the season.

    The matchups will be judged on number of reads. There will be a Community Leader assigned to each division to keep track of total reads and report on the winners and losers.

    I was wondering if you would be interested in assuming the role as head of a division?

    I'm really excited about this latest contest, so please get back to me as soon as possible!

    Hey Rob,

    I had a big smile on my face when I saw you name next to mine as a Raiders Community Leader. If you've any ideas as always I'm in. Something else that was pretty funny, I wrote an article on Michael Bush and this guy chimed in asking if he was ever going to see the field.

    just writing to tell you that I am no longer writing for Bleacher Report. I have embarked on several new ventures of my own and they are in direct conflict content-wise with BR.

    Two of my blogs ( and have been incorporated into the Yardbarker network and and a third one - ny giant nation - is being run by

    I also bought into a sports video site that is in its infancy - - which we are still developing....

    Have you seen the latest video by The Stephen A. Smith Heckling Society of Gentlemen?

    It's funny I went to Raidernews and saw the link and checked out the article. I enjoyed it and can't thank you enough. I can promise you this in the words of Lt. General Doulas McArthur in 1942 "I shall Return".

    I've written a few Raiders stories that I would like your take on.

    You're a Raiders fan like myself so I doubt it will be any information that is new to you but I still want your take. I've also read your stories on this site as well as on MVN and your website. I've enjoyed every story. I also want to thank you in advance for your take.

    When you're drafting that high, you can't worry about who's already on your roster. Your roster probably stinks. You have to draft the best guy. They had McFadden as the best guy. Therefore, it was a great pick.

    Besides, their runningbacks were all either hurt or drunks. I'm not banking anything on any of those guys. McFadden is going to be a fantastic player.
