For the hardcore draft fan, 3 day draft is no good. Weekday draft is even worse. It used to be from noon to the late evening on Saturday and Sunday. It was 2 full straight days of NFL football in April. Now it's a fricking turd, especially since the coverage has gotten worse.
For NFL fans, the draft is often viewed as the halftime of the offseason, but the reality is it’s really not the midpoint of the offseason at all: It comes less than three months after the Super Bowl, but with more than four months left before the start of the regular season
i liked waking up at 12 and watching the draft on a saturday morning. Now it is on thursday friday saturday. frick YOU ROG
quote:Was this ever really going to happen? This is completely retarded. 18 games? Pretty soon the regular season will mean as much as it does in the NBA.
It’s worth wondering whether the owners are also thinking that moving back the offseason could give them more breathing room if they expand the regular season to 18 games
