I think most younger fans like the new format, too. I didn't like burning up a whole weekend for the draft, tbh. Round 1 is primetime material, as it should be, and by the time the weekend rolls around you can do other things and not feel like you're missing the best part(s) of the draft.
Besides, if a person says he's a hardcore NFL fan...he'd be OK with watching the draft if it were held on a Tuesday at 3 a.m. let alone on Thursday night. Our friends across the pond don't have the luxury of watching NFL stuff at the most optimal times like we do here. And yet I bet THEY are glad they can get whatever morsels of nourishment they can get their hands on. Right?
I think some people (not naming names or anything
) like to piss and moan about everything.
I get what you're saying. However moving the draft has ruined the draft party atmosphere. We still have a party but the draft is just not a big deal. I miss the part of everybody hanging out watching the draft together now. God'ell has ruined that for me and my friends. along with taking hard hits, kickoffs etc... out of the game. Maybe God'ell will get run over by a track before he can do any more damage to the game I love. LOL
