    Someone should tell Michael Crabtree to go read the wikipedia entry for "Mike Williams."

    Re: Crabtree to hold out, blame the Raiders.

    Does anyone really think that if Crabtree were to sit out the entire season and re-enter the draft, that Goodell would just sit on the sidelines and do nothing? Crabtree would be making a mockery of the draft system and I can't imagine that Goodell would let something that would "reflect poorly on the league" happen so easily.

    This is something he does not have a whole lot of discretion. His hands would likely be tied over this one. With regard to personal conduct, he has the ability to act in the best interests of the league. But there's not much legal wiggle room for him to spare the draft from any damage that might be done over this.
