I've been hesitant to admit this, but I think the Cleveland Browns should trade down in teh 2016 NFL Draft. Part of the newfound bravery comes from the Browns signing Robert Griffin III - a prospect in his own right - but it's really what I was thinking all along. I just don't know how much I love the top of the NFL draft. I discuss that at length as well as the Cleveland Indians' decision to put Trevor Bauer in the bullpen. Finally I touch on the new way that sports is being covered and how athletes are acting in the new generation. I talk about how crusty I am.

Batman v Superman is one of those occasions, especially considering the amount of conversations we had over the years about the first Superman installment by Zack Snyder, Man of Steel.

It's Cleveland Indians season and that means in-fighting amongst the Tribe faithful about the team and if they did enough to compete. I make the case that the Indians did not do enough and left too much of their plan up to hope. Also, I talk about the Browns and how quiet their rumor mill has been thus far.

We discuss RG3, Pacman Jones, the Indians' rotation and much more.
