NFL Draft

May 19, 2014

I am sure that only a few people were glued to the TV earlier this month when the NFL draft was being broadcast by ESPN.  My idea of this draft is that it is just another way to make money for the networks.  If you are a true NFL fan, you pay attention to this; but to someone like me, it is a boring waste of time.  If it weren’t for TV, you wouldn’t need 3 days to complete the process.

A lot of the coaches in the league are not happy that because of the TV coverage the draft is continually being put later in the spring.  I suppose this is because that gets them a better audience.  Next year, I understand, they plan to do the draft at the end of May or in early June.  Since the football camps begin in July, this would only give each NFL team about a month to orient these newcomers to the terminology needed for participation in full drills.

I am probably in the minority on this, but I have better things to do than watch the NFL commissioner hug big, burly football players.
