Dolphins | One Comp Pick - posted at KFFL (http://nfl.kffl.com)
14:40 PT: The Miami Dolphins were awarded one compensation pick in the 2002 NFL Draft. It is in the fifth round, No. 170 overall.

This is crap!
We were awarded a 5th rounder (for Richmond Webb) and nothing for Trace Armstrong. Had Armstrong registered 10 sacks with the Raiders, we probably would have gotten a 3rd or 4th. So, basically, the NFL is telling us that because Trace was hurt for the year, the Dolphins never really lost him. It's great, is it?

Man, this BLOWS!!! Something needs to be changed in regards to if a player sustains a season ending injury, it shouldn't effect whether or not the team he previously played for receives an additional draft pick. That team can't help it if the player has a major injury. Therefore, they shouldn't be penalized for it.


:monkey: The NFL and how they handle this situation

It goes to show that you're ignorant to the rules of the compensation formula!

One of the criteria is that the player lost MUST play for their new team in the regular season. Armstrong was injured in pre-season and never played a down for the Raiders.

Outside of Webb, all your other players lost were offset by those you signed!!

Go back a month and look for the threads about comp picks and it will show you that I predicted ya would get no more than a 5th

It's not frickin brain surgery :)

Actually, Trace did play in the reg. season...he played against the Fins & whiffed on Fiedler as he ran it in for the game-winning score...

Yes we read your post and dismissed you as a typically ignorant Bills fan. Which you proved by using facts that don't exist. Trace Armstrong went down in week 2 with the Raiders.

The phins lost 2 premier FA's and only came out of it with a 5th rounder which proves they got robbed and that those rules need fixing. When you lose a guy who does 14+ sacks and get no compensation for him then that is BS you ignorant Bills fan.

Clumped did predict exactly what we got and It's not so hard to see that we got what we deserved. Maybe the system is f**cked up, when it weighs so heavilly on production for the new team instead of the production that the old team lost, but that's the way it goes. Trace only played three games for his new team and for whoever mentioned Donnally in another post, Todd Perry's signing cancels him. So the only big free agent loss was Webb. I'm sure we signed a couple of other free agents, and so that pushed down Webbs' value. Sad but True.

Going on what FA having to have played a game last season, how many games did Spriggs play. Didn't he get hurt about the same time Trace did? I don't remember him playing much more than a game maybe two.
