    As long as I get to watch the draft I dont really care on its format. I would imagine that ESPN and NFLN will have all the regulars on video conference.
    Will if be different hell yeah but it's also the best 3 days of the whole football season.
    Dont screw this up jerry

    I'm much more interested in who the Cowboys draft than whatever format the draft is presented.

    Give me the clock, the announced pick, who is on the clock next, give me details of trades and lets move on.

    This might actually turn about to be better than the regular draft. Less pomp and circumstance and more getting on with the business of football.

    I understand that this forum doesn't want to be over run with the CV threads, but at some point we need to recognize that the CV does have a direct affect on even this forums posting of league wide actions.

    I think this setting could be much better than the usual routine.

    The draft should be moved to Saturday morning like it used to be and do the draft in one day. Its not like they are going up against other sports at this time.

    You can post this article in the CVZ forum and discuss it all you want. In this forum, it's not being allowed.

    I will also be glad to move this thread to the CVZ forum if most people prefer that, but I would like to leave it here for now.

    Because no one can attend the normal event and in a TV studio, they can easily link with every team's head quarters when needed.

    That's my thoughts on the matter. Sometimes they make it into a Hollywood hyped premiere instead of a sporting event.

    If there is no chance of getting trolled by a squeaky-voiced kicker, then I'm not watching.

    Just have a "Boo" soundtrack available, and it will feel "normal."

    Perhaps this will also make the draft go a bit quicker which would be fine with me.

    Not a bad idea actually. However, they should theme it like Maury though to increase the primal entertainment value commensurate with pro-football.

    Can you picture it instead of Goodell opening up an envelope containing paternity test results, it's the draft pick. Meanwhile the owners and GM's of teams are tackling, duking it out in the background.

    The Draft isnt something to watch. I just look it up later and see who Dallas got and who went where the 1st 2 rounds.
