Although we’re quite busy here at PFW getting ready for the draft and cranking out copy for both the preview and fantasy magazines — yes, it’s a sick thought, isn’t it? — this is one of the few lulls in the NFL calendar: before the owners’ meetings and the draft and after the big wave of free agency.

Personally, I hope the league comes out of the Arizona meetings with something firm on player-conduct rules. That, to me, is the biggest issue of the offseason. One reason the NFL has held its ground above baseball and the NBA — and I stress one — is image. The NFL has done a far better job of protecting its image to the public, but recent runs afoul of the law have left it open for criticism.

The players need to do their part, as do the teams that police them, but the league has a responsibility here, too. It needs to set some more stringent guidelines for breaking the law, especially multiple times, and it appears the proposed “three strike” stuff is the hard-line stance it needs to take.

On a personal note, I have been taken up with watching my new Miami Vice: Season Three DVDs, though I have only been able to squeeze in about five episodes since it came out on Tuesday. If you are a fan, hurry over to Best Buy, where they are offering any two seasons (the first four are out now) for $50. Not bad.

So far, the best moments have been Sonny Crockett watching his Daytona explode in “When Irish Eyes Are Crying” and him getting his new Testarossa the next episode in “Stone’s War.” Fun fact: Did you know “testarossa” is Italian for “redhead?
