    I don't know about the rest of you draftnicks but this is damn unsettling.
    I really had to do some wheeling and dealing to keep my Warroom up over the weekend.
    Not sure how I am gonna convince Wildwoman to let me keep it up on two week nights.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    I don't like it for the sole reason that I don't watch the draft.
    I like to come home, and see who we drafted in the first and second round.
    Now i have to wait until late at night to find out (since we'll be picking 32nd), and thats only the first round.

    LOL, I watch every minute of it and love watching who every team takes, not just the Vikes.

    I don't like this idea, I liked the Saturday/Sunday format during a slow time in sports in general.
    Gave you something to look forward to for the weekend.

    Every decision Goodell makes, I like him less and less.
    He's also trying to schedule more games out of the country.
    All that's doing is penalizing your loyal fan base.
    They've already done NFL Europe.
    And negotiations about a Superbowl in London?!?

    I hate this idea. The whole point of the draft is the 2 day marathon that it is. I enjoy the 12 hours of live tv per day the NFL network puts on.

    It is just another cash grab and I hate it.
    We're bringing purple back.

    I hear ya, but gone is the option to turn on the TV saturday afternoon, and see where the draft is at and catch a few picks.
