Used to be wake up..start BBQing with friends...crack beer at first overall pick and start speculating until sundown. Repeat Sunday.
I have been following the draft since the days when you could only get the results on monday in the newspaper. I started having big parties on draft saturday when I was finally able to see it on ESPN. And then along comes Goodell. This guy is slowly ruining the game of football. Pretty soon the players will be wearing flags. When he moved the draft from saturday and sunday to thursday/friday/saturday he pi$$ed off a lot of fans. The draft was a much bigger event for fans than it is now. Now you can flip back and forth between the draft and your wife's favorite primetime show. Instead of an event that meant an all day party it is now a channel flipper for alot of fans that used to dedicate their entire saturday to it.
Of course I'm still a hardcore fan that watches all 3 days but the average fan got lost in the whole switch of days
