Generals draft their owner?

New Jersey Generals owner Donald Trump was up to his usual grandstanding Friday as he ordered GM/Coach Chuck Fairbanks to draft him as the team's punter/kick holder. Time will tell if this is legitimate or a joke but wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall if Fairbanks has to cut him?

The controversial Trump is starting to gain a reputation as a loose cannon and rumor has it he wants to go head to head vs the NFL someday. It sounds like a pipe dream but he believes he can win an antitrust lawsuit against the NFL and force a merger. LMAO, with that kind of thinking he might as well try to be an astronaut or the President of the United States. Geez what a looney tune.

In all seriousness I wasn't going to use this name just yet, my plan was to make him the QB 3. When looking over the 3 years worth of the real Generals rosters I found 3 different punters so I decided now was the time.

Please don't make this about politics as I didn't vote for him or Clinton, just couldn't do it. That's as far as I am going to go with politics, I only used this name for fun because he was the real NJG owner and this is something he would do. I was 14 when the USFL started and all I remember was he was a blowhard and enjoyed the spotlight. He certainly hasn't changed much the last 35 years.

This is great, especially the quality use of history of how he pretty much single handedly forced the USFL to fail. I hated him so much when I researched into why the USFL wasn't around anymore, a few nice documentaries made about it too. Thank you for blending a lovely nugget of USFL history into the league :)
