    AT&T Stadium in Arlington is still in contention to host the 2015 NFL Draft, but the league has zeroed in on three cities — Los Angeles, New York and Chicago — as sites for its biggest spring event.

    “We are focusing right now on those three cities. That could change,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said.

    Aiello refuted reports that said finalists have been named.

    “No one has been eliminated,” he added.

    So draft is definitely moving next year... LA would be interesting, but the time zone thing would kill my interest.

    Actually central time zone works best all around especially for the night rounds.

    Love the draft but I really couldn't care less where it's held. I think splitting it into 3 days was step 1 in their plan to have a traveling road show, not surprised at all that this is happening.

    I think the new location talk was created because of Radio City Musical Hall booking a stupid Easter show forcing the NFL to push back their schedule. The NFL wants to have the power.

    i think moving it around is a great idea. very expensive to travel to new york for 3 days.as much as i hate the pro bowl you could generate a bit more interest if you moved it around so avg fans had a shot at attending

    Exactly. I care what players we get, not what city the draft was held in.

    IMO the dragging out of the draft, including the circus between picks, has made it almost unwatchable anyway. I wouldn't care in the slightest about attending it in person.

    I couldn't care less where the draft will be held.

    What matters to me is that the draft is held in April rather than May. Absolutely unnecessary to draw it out another couple weeks.

    If the Dallas Cowboys are a football team, then it's only par to bring on the draft to Arlington... over hyped and ridiculous they are a couple of twinkies without the creme filling...add 2 more days of coverage while you're at it, put 16 teams in the playoffs, extend the season to 20 games and touch both hands on the QBs arse for a sack. Don't squeeze the Charmin.

    Word is that they now realize that the #1 event held each year there is going away - they thought they could yank the NFL's chain and the NFL would just sit there and take it. oopppsss.
