    The Draft is going to be 3 days starting in 2010

    Can't say I am super happy about this. My wife is already mad enough that she has to watch ESPN for 2 days straight. I can't see her being too pleased about adding a 3rd day.

    NFL draft will expand to three days in 2010 - ESPN

    I typically lose interest after pick #15.

    I check in on the ticker a couple of times. I find the whole thing really boring (no offense).

    revkah has been there for the times I've tried to watch it, and I can't stick with it. I get to where I want to do something else pretty quickly.

    I disagree. I would argue that the draft doesn't get good until after pick 15.

    Don't we usually know that pick a couple weeks before the draft?

    Are you saying that the draft doesn't get good until two weeks before it starts?

    I usually try to watch the whole thing... get a case or two of Shiner or Leinies. Draft day is in my top 5 sporting events of the year, behind Bowl Month, March Madness and the Super Bowl.

    Man, it's going to be difficult to keep the party rollin' for three straight days...

    The draft blows. I could care less about it. Adding a 3rd day is like extending the WNBA season.

    It just doesn't make sense to do it IMO. I may watch the first rd but the whole reason for doing it is dumb

    This is part of the NFL destruction. Everything is going to be a big deal. Now the first round will be on a seperate day, suck. They freaking did a Sportscenter special up the *** when the schedules were released, give me a break! I like football, but the NFL is stuffing themselves down our throats.


    I don't drink the Kool-Aid, and I am done making excuses. Only keeping it real...

    Obviously the NFL wants to turn the Draft into more of a moneymaker by moving it to primetime during the week. The problem is that the vast majority of people are like you and will only watch the first round. I will freely admit that I am a draft addict, and will watch the whole thing no matter what time it is on. However, I think the NFL is severly overestimating the number of people that will give up their Thursday and Friday nights for the draft, as opposed to their Saturday and Sunday.

    It would have made a bit more sense for them to schedule it friday night, Sat and Sunday instead of doing it thur,fri and sat
