The rethinking of the 2014 NFL Pro-bowl has been seen as nothing but a success, with Team Rice edging out Team Sanders 22-21. The new fantasy football style drafting, as opposed to the traditional NFC vs. AFC format, has been lauded by both media and fans and made for an unusually entertaining Pro-bowl matchup. However, former Oregon Duck standout and the 2002 3rd overall draft pick of the Detroit Lions – Joey Harrington has been quite outspoken in his dissatisfaction with the new Pro-bowl process.
“Where in the fuck was team Harrington in this pro-bowl?” exclaimed the really, really pissed off former PAC-10 offensive player of the year. “Look, I was in the NFL for 6 years and it was my understanding that I’d have a team.”
NFL officials were quick to respond. “No, Joey Harrington was not promised a team or any kind of participation in this or any future Pro-bowl. We have no idea where Mr. Harrington got that idea from and wish him continued success in, whatever it is he does now.”
Undeterred, Harrington made known the results of his fantasy draft last night via Twitter. However, with most of the big name talent in the NFL already drafted by either Team Rice or Team Sanders, or playing in Superbowl XLVIII, Team Harrington looks to be off to a rough start:
QB: ME (Joey Harrington), Christian Ponder, Kellen Clemens (Oregon Freaking Ducks Bitches)
WR: ME (Joey Harrington), Jeff Maehl
RB: Kenjon Barner, ME (Joey Harrington)
Plus every other Oregon Duck there is, FEAR THE QUACK, WIN THE DAY. – @Joeylicious
We attempted to reach Mr. Harrington for further comment however he was described as currently “resting” at an undisclosed location.
