Do you have any new fiction recommendations?
John Grisham's "King of Torts" is a fictional look into the disgustingly real world of tort law.

On porches; they keep the bugs away.

Please describe the play of a Dick Butkus in the modern NFL. Or just describe Dick Butkus.
He was a dominant player and personality at football's most important and celebrated defensive position. In today's game, Butkus wouldn't have the opportunity to be the great player he was in the '60's because middle linebacker is arguably the least important defensive position, and he might find himself on the sideline for the majority of plays in a game.

Are most head coaches a dime a dozen?
The ones that get switched out every 2-3 years are.

What are your thoughts on the recent reporting of how professional sports team owners use their teams to avoid paying taxes?
The story to which you are referring painted a perfect example of the philosophy of trickle down economics. It's another example of how government has sold out to corporate America with the idea what's good for business is good for workers. There's merit to that thinking, but the gap between ownership and labor is troubling.

Once he heals up his ACL and plays a season, what old guy do you think Josiah Deguara might one day remind you of?

Vic, am I crazy for wanting Jamaal Williams at the price Detroit signed him for over Jones and the price we signed him for? I like Jones but feel TD numbers make us overrate him a little.
Williams isn't Jones. Williams doesn't have Jones' star quality. Is Williams Dillon? I think that's the bigger question. Did the Packers use a second-round pick on a complementary back they already had?
Jesse from Bonita Springs, FL
Any dreams of going to space, Vic?
No, and I'm surprised I don't.
Jeremy from Columbus, WI
Do you have any thoughts or attitudes toward hats?
It's come to this? A question about hats? Well, it's better than another question about Aaron Rodgers. I wear a baseball hat. It keeps the sun out of my eyes.
