    Hi Everyone:

    If we are losing our first round pick, what happens to it? Will there only be 31 selections in the first round? Or does another team get it?

    Also, where does the fine money go? $750K could go a long way for some charity or charities.....Does this money go into the NFL coffers? Cripes it would take me 10 years salary to pay BB's portion of the fine...

    I'd assume the fines go to charity. The #1 pick just disappears. No one gets it.

    Well if the Raiders end up in last place... does our 3rd rounder become a 2nd rounder? :)

    The fines could go to charity, but that's not a given. Fines usually accrue to the league's coffers.

    We'll just have to see how this one shakes out.

    If there's media pressure to do the charity thing, then undoubtedly Goodell will make a big PR production out of it.

    Bank on that!
