I rename my draftees each year as a mnemonic device and they usually have a theme. I plan on using this post to track/explain the yearly theme(s).
1974 Allocation - Real life NJ Generals plus their owner/punter
1974 Late FA rookie signees - 1974
Rather than continue scraping the bottom of the General barrel, I thought I would switch it up for the rookies I sign post draft. I was only 5 in 1974 so I had to wikipedia for info on that year.
Richard Nixon - It's not every year a President resigns from Office
Stephen King - Carrie, his first novel, was published in 1974
Greg Brady - The Brady Bunch was cancelled in 1974
Randolph Hearst - He was a wealthy publishing magnate whose daughter was kidnapped in 1974. If 1974 were 2004, Patty Hearst would be a reality TV star after her kidnapping adventures. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patty_Hearst
Added 2 more rookies in Late FA 3
Seth Green - Comedian/Actor born in 1974, probably best known for Robot Chicken
David Faustino - better known by his TV character's name, Bud Bundy. Married...is probably my 2nd favorite sitcom behind Seinfeld and he was also born in 1974.
