Dope or Nope ...

The NFL just had it's draft this past weekend. Nothing's really unusual about that ... except that the NFL did something different this year. They held the first round of the draft on Thursday night - that's right, prime time! Normally, in the past, the NFL held the draft on Saturday and Sunday. It was long, boring, tiresome, and just overloaded with useless facts and annoying conversations.

For some reason, the NFL felt the need to move this "drama" to prime-time. What are your thoughts on this? Did you like it? I actually enjoyed having to only sit through one round, but there was SO much good tv on that night - The Phillies, Flyers, NBC shows (The Office, 30 Rock, etc.).

I missed most of it due to the PSU Alumni dinner. Lots of folks asked how you were.

Generally am in favor of it. Esp. speeding up R1 -- the only round we really care about -- OK, maybe a little of R2.

What I really hated was the Eagles trading the Sean Lee pick to the Cowgirls. Ugh.

NFL drafts are what they are. Not for me (comming from a guy who played for the best high school football team in the USA back in high school). lol

I boycotted my beloved football this year...ahem...BUT

Please! A draft in prime time? There is already enough manufactured drama in the form of 'reality' shows. This one I did not need.
