They are not hurting for money, but they did sell commercial time to sponsors who are expecting eyeballs on the tube during the draft, so they almost have to insist on that, or that income stream will dry up quick.

Yeah, it was down in the Big Easy at a place called O'Brien's off of Bourbon Street where they first met. Ryan was there to drown his sorrows for losing his starting job in Buffalo.
Bill was there just trying to get away from his wife, who was nagging at him for working too much.
It's pure fate that these two men were brought together over a few drinks in the French Quarter. The Universe has spoken, and nobody can stand in the way of this Juggernaut led by O'Brien & Fitzpatrick!
