I just watched the final episode and noticed something amusing.

From 46:08 to 46:23 you can see Bengals scout Robert Livingston looking at a familiar webpage.

The Rotoworld NFL Player News page, something I know I refresh many times a day.

Just funny to think scouts and team personnel rely on this webpage for news.

Makes you wonder if they lurk on the forums.

The thought of Belichick trolling this place is too funny.

I know for a fact they look at ProFootballTalk. It's only natural that they would look at Rotoworld too since it's affiliated with PFT. I thought it was pretty cool though. I doubt they check the forums much though.

Maybe Gio Bernard is actually the guy posting about how huge he is.

I know for a fact Ryan Swope reads/posts on these forums...not really a big name, and he retired before he even played a NFL game, but still.

Haha I noticed that too and thought it was funny. My guess is that since it was cut day for all teams they were keeping an eye on who was being cut that day. My guess is they probably don't view it as much as we might think/hope but for a day like that where there is a bunch of league activity going on it would make sense to find one place that would have it all.

Wonder what he thinks of Arians offense down there... and how Michael Floyd is looking.

He is back in College Station at A&M finishing his degree currently.

That was pretty great. Most likely looking for roster cuts which was what I was doing as well! We should try to get an AMA or something going from coaches or players!

BTW, Taylor Mays seems like a fun guy to be around.

Too bad he's not an instinctive football player, since he has all the physical tools. Too often out of position or making the wrong decision.

When that rookie was mimicking him a few episodes back, it cracked me up.

Jayson Dimonche seems like a good guy too. He must've been sweating bullets during that phone call.
