Default The Draft Just Got Even Better

No more tipping off the picks by showing "the phone call":

I never understood that... they would show the phone call and then act all suprised when the team made the pick.

That's a step in the right direction. Now they just need to go back to the multiple round weekend morning format so I can get my Bloody Mary on without having to go to work the next day.

No kidding... I missed the days of having Brunch and watching the draft, maybe didn't watch the entire thing.. but it was on in the background when I was tooling around the garage.

1.) Return the format to Saturday rounds 1-3, Sunday 4-7.

2.) Shorten the time between picks

3.) Eliminate the phone call give away shot (which they did.)

The phone call giveaway shot was the worst... I don't want to know who the pick is until it comes out of Ginger Boy's mouth.

That's exactly what I did too. Have it on in the background, and putz around the house/garage and periodically catch updates and drink. Now they've tried to manufacture rounds 2 and 3 into some sort of separate prime time event from round 1. I'm sorry, I don't need to have a prime time show drag out featuring a live look in at Colt McCoy getting drafted in the ****ing 3rd round.

I really wish someone would've had fun with this. If I was one of the prospects invited to sit in the back room, I would've had a friend or family member queued up to call me just before every pick. Then I would've started crying and high fiving everyone at my table. Then, once the actual pick was announced, I would've picked the phone back up and started swearing into it and telling off "the coach" on the other line for lying to me.

Ratings gold.

I really wish it would go back to a weekend deal. Two days. Relax and watch the draft.

And "now" it's better? Maybe we can get David Copperfield to pull the picks out of a box - like literally pull the players out of a box as their names are called.

Or we could put the players behind doors number one, two and three and then the teams try to decide where their player is hiding. Ryan Seacrest could be the host and the you could put beautiful women in swim suits up there doing that hand model thing like Vanna White.

And bring in Ryan Seacrest to host and lead the interviews after they are picked.

Take it a step further and do it up "Let's Make a Deal - style" where you hide a "zonk" behind one of the doors.

I say they should have to get through some kind of dancing competition. That would also draw in more of the female audience.

Who wouldn't want to see Dontari Poe doing the tango?

I like the three-day draft, keeps me interested. Or at least it did when Josh was here, could not walk away at all because he would pull some trade out of his pocket when you did..

Of course I'm retired and have no where I have to be the next day either.. Becaue I schedule NOTHING during that time frame..

It is called planning..
