  • The Army Changes Their Mind...

    about Caleb Campbell.
    DETROIT -- Caleb Campbell will not get a chance to play for the Detroit Lions because of a change in military policy.

    Campbell was a seventh-round draft pick for the Lions in April. At the time, Army policy would have allowed the West Point graduate to serve as a recruiter if he made the team.

    But a subsequent Department of Defense policy has superseded the 2005 Army policy.

    In a letter to Lions president Matt Millen dated Wednesday, U.S. Army Lt. Col. Jonathan P. Liba wrote that Campbell has been ordered to give up professional football for "full-time traditional military duties."

    Liba wrote that 2nd Lt. Campbell may ask to be released from his active duty obligations in May 2010.

    Liba said Campbell was allowed to enter the draft "in good faith."

            That's funny! The Army saying- "We let him enter the draft in good faith" is basically saying- "We didn't think he was good enough to get drafted" and now they have to try to salvage their "investment" into him. Hmph!

                Well, then they shouldn't have told him he could try to make a team.

                  That old Army slogan, "Be all you can be" is not sounding that great to Caleb Campbell right now, at least for his NFL career sake. What's a shame is that in two years what are the chances of a 2008 7th round pick making the NFL.

                    I know what you mean...

                    Maybe he should figure out a way to get discharged. Or go reserve.
                    And how is it that an American Idol contestant can be on American Idol even though he is active in the military, but military dude can't play football for oh, 6 months out of the year.

                    The Army should let the man play.
