Remember that scene in "Major League" where the opponent blasts a home run in the bleachers and the fans kept bickering it's too high, no it's too....and the other fan finally goes "it's gone, who gives a s.h.i.t.?"

That's what we should say about any kind of coverage of punters and kickers. A summary of potential draftees on the Bears' radar would be better.

As I told the editor from Winnipeg; Although I punted a 5.63 second hang time punt at the Stampeders 2009 tryout and a 5.9 sec. 52 yarder, wind aided, timed by two witnesses two days prior (highest hang times only produced by a small number of current NFL punters and yet its likely none of them have hit a 6.0 this year,... with passing skills that are still above and beyond all other punters), I'm getting attention, but not the serious attention I'm looking for... Since the Blue Bombers refused to allow me to tryout in Deland this year...It looks like I'll have to come back next year for both the NFL and CFL open camps, with a record breaking, mind blowing, semi-consistent 6.0-6.2 sec. hang time punts and we'll see what happens...(with those types of hang times, at 50+ yds net, there's just no-chance of a return,... the returner is going to get mauled by 5-7 of our guys)

Although Sports Anchor Joe Kepner only filmed 2 punts on camera, where he was able to track the football hang time from foot-to-ground,(the punt on the preview news coverage, on the website), was a 5.0 second hang time punt. A punt on the full story was a 4.2. Just a few punts later (the punt aired twice near the end of the full story), I launched a monster 5.6+ at 50+ yards net with a 1.00 sec. hand-to-foot (which is probably a faster avg. getoff than all of the above punters, given my unique 1 1/2 step punting style). After that punt I turned and said... "take that one to the bank".
