    For those Cowboys fans who dont live in the Metroplex, I encourage you to listen to portions of the draft (online) on our local sports station 1310AM The Ticket.

    They are the only local sports station in the nation that carries all 7 rounds. They do a pretty good job on prospect analysis and discussion.

    I'm sure most will watch it on ESPN, but if you want to hear more in depth conversation about the Cowboys picks....http://www.theticket.com/ ....... is the place to be.

    I agree.....Ive been studying in Europe these past two years so I have only been able to listen to the online stream. They do a great job on covering the draft from a Cowboys perspective.

    Norm is absolutely the best in draft coverage, and he's tireless. He will be there for every step and every pick, and I would really tune in to the ticket and watch the live coverage on ESPN or record it.

    No other media outlet, in any form, can touch the Ticket's coverage of the draft. That's the one good thing I can say about 1310. It is outstanding.

    I've listen for the last few years and Norm does an awesome job with the draft. It's pretty much required listening for any die hard Cowboys fan.

    Absolutely agree. Mute the TV and listen to the ticket.

    That's exactly what I do. I only turn the sound on the tv during the Ticket's commercial breaks.

    Now that the Ticket is the official Cowboys flagship station, they are promising even more insider coverage of the team this draft.

    I rag on the ticket a great deal but they really do a great job during the draft.

    Norm is a tad annoying when he starts panting and slobbering over some picks but he really is like the energizer bunny and has a good amount of good info.

    Sometimes just before picks norm or one of his guests will let the cat out of the bag and give you the indication of the next player taken, don't know if it is a good educated guess or if someone from the cowboys gives them a heads up right before the pick.

    Either way for those that have not gotten a chance to listen before it really is worth it.

    I usually listen to the ticket and have espn on the background. I might turn up espn just as the dallas pick is made to hear what they say, and normally it is just a blurb and then turn the volume back down and listen to the tickets coverage as they go in deeper detail about the pick.

    I agree and also have been listening to Norm's draft coverage the past 2-3 years. I can't stand the local coverage here in new england...so the ticket online provides me with my cowboy fix.

    Now that I have Sirius, I'm also interested to see how the NFL channel's coverage will be.

    Wow, Norm just gave out what the Ticket is going to do for draft coverage. They negotiated these terms with the Cowboys as part of their flagship station deal.

    WOW that sounds really great.

    I would be very interested to hear most of that.

    Man, that's going to be sweet. I'd love to hear the input from guys like Ireland, Bowles (if we take a DB), etc...

    Thanks InmanRoshi I wuz about to post too ...

    Amazing, amazing stuff.

    This is in addition to the Ticket's usual thing where they seem to have the cell number of every draft-eligible player, and phone each Cowboys pick about 10 seconds after he's announced. I think last year the Ticket got to a player before the Cowboys could call and the player kept calling Norm "Mr. Jones" amid the celebration.

    Ticket draft coverage begins at 10 each day and goes to maybe 8 p.m. Saturday and 6 p.m. Sunday or when last picks are made. Now I guess it'll be a little longer while we hear from Jeff Ireland!

    Ever more reason to be a draft dork just when I was going to swear it off! No calls please except for emergencies!

    I would not want to give money for that...most people I have talked to say they are no better afterwards and some say they are even worse.

    Yes I know you were kidding but thought I would just state that anyways.:cool:

    Yeah, I've heard mixed reviews too.

    Actually, stream ripping is so prevalent now that typed recaps might not be needed.
