04:42 PM ET 08.27 | NFL Teams have till this afternoon to trim their 90-man training camp rosters down to 75. Unfortunately that means the end of the road for Havard Rugland, the YouTube sensation known as "Kickalicious," who had been in camp with the Detroit Lions. David Akers won the job despite Rugland impressing with "expected leg strength and accuracy at camp." It's remarkable considering how pedestrian (and in all accounts, uncharacteristically) Akers played last season. Akers only converted 69 percent of his kicks last year for the San Francisco 49ers.

Too bad. I was rooting for Rugland to make the team.

Probably should've, too. Akers sucks.

Maybe next year.

Well the brain trusts at the Packers screwed themselves because they placed a couple of losers on the IR list who shouldn't have made the team anyways, so they cannot pick up any players now without cutting someone from the team. They obviuosly are sticking with Crosby and I hope he sucks all year.

We're all now slightly dumber for having read that.
