NFL WEEK SIX

The survivor pool saw some upsets last week, with KC losing and taking Miguel De La Over down along with Shumie's Ren and Alan Kaiser and Jason Ireland getting knocked out with da Bears losing a see-saw battle with the soon-to-be Las Vegas Raiders near the old Bailey in London. Eight players are left, including the ever dangerous Mr. Markus. 

WIN The Game of the week has to be the winless Redskins at the winless Dolphins. Our Fins are home dogs at -.35 and are coming off a bye-week. Mortgage the house and bet the rent money on Miami to win one or cover.

LOSS Another "home-dog" we like is the Tampa Bay Bucs +2 over the visiting Panthers. Of course both teams are playing in London, but we still like Tampa. Bruce Arians is a great coach and he is beginning to work his QB whisperer-magic on Winston. 

LOSS AND TIE ON THE OVER The Houston Texans march into a buzz-saw named KC who will be a foul mood after disappointing Judge De La O and losing MNF to the Colts. Take the Chiefs and lay the 5 and take the over 55. 

WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER Bengals at Ravens. Cinncy can't win, but they may cover but our pick is the under 48. 

WIN ON PICK AND WIN ON OVER 
Cowboys at J...E....T...S...Jets Jets Jets, We like another home dog as gang green gets it QB back New York +7 at home and over 43 as Leveon Bell (remember him?) gets back on track.

I think it is fine that Judge de la O participates in football pools. I do not think it is fine for you to make fun of his name or fail to show the respect he is due as a judge. Lawyers get too familiar with judges, and they think it is cool to refer to them by their first names or other terms that show that they are "friends of the court." We do our profession a disservice by acting in this way. All of us need to remember that these people are judges, 24 hours a day, and everyone has a right to assume that they stand before a judge as equals, not as a party standing before an advocate's "Danny-boy." When someone dons a robe, he or she is "Judge _____," not as one of the guys.

I appreciate your comment and it is taken in the spirit given. We have been honored to have Judge De La O read our blog, and participate in the survivor pool and the fantasy football league where he is a top player. Several years ago we gave him the nickname "De La Over" which is a play on the over/under bets in football. We did it in the spirit of fun and I can assure you that if he had any qualms about it, all he would have to do is email us and we would immediately remove it. Considering that he has been an enthusiastic participant for several years- closely loosing the FF title game to a superior player last year named Rumpole- we assume he does not take offense at the nickname. If he did we would stop.
But you are right about the fact that judges are entitled to respect (as long they do not work in broward or do something stupid )

8:54 stands corrected. I just get irritated when I hear lawyers using a judge's first name or nickname in front of other people. I will never forget having my first motion calendar in front of a circuit judge. The guy sitting opposite me had wispy gray hair. When I finished, the judge looked at him and said: "What do you think, Red?" Red responded: "Can I have 15 days?" Judge to lawyer is kind of O.K., but all of us have to deal with the transition of friends and colleagues to the bench. They have to remember that they are judges as we have to remember it too. By the way, have you appeared in front of Judge Casey or Judge Usan in Broward? Not a bad experience, but I must confess I prefer a venue where I do not have to show a passport.
