Default Draft on NFL Network?

I saw on nfl.com that the draft is going to be on NFL network. Does this mean there will be no coverage of it on ESPN?

April 28th for those who didn't already know.

I don't know why people blame Time Warner. Time Warner wants to carry the NFL Network for free, the NFL Network wants you to pay an additional monthly fee. The NFL Network are the bastards in all this.

I don't know...but I highly doubt the NFL is going to keep the most popular draft event in all of sports under wraps. You guys need to get the dish and the ticket though. Nice this time of year when they rerun the games from last season. I'll bounce around between the two. Katy ISD recruiting day my wife has to scout out the teacher tallent....she's pissed. LOL. So I'll have to record day one for her. Kinda of funny they're just like the NFL clubs everybody tring to figgure out who has the best "tallent" as a new or young teacher. Schools hiding the best prospect from the other schools. Tring to steal girls from the other schools.
The stories she comes home with, they're funny. Cut throat recruiting.

Actually you wrong on this.

NFL Network wants timewarner to have it part of the basic cable package and show it for free and yet pay NFL Network a set amount per tv subscription.

The reason timewarner has not been showing it, is because they would be getting seriously screwed on it and making nothing for it.

NFL Network, IMO, does a far better job of covering the draft.

Having said that, I do wish both networks, but especially ESPN, would concintrate on analysis of the picks, and of the needs of the teams both before the draft begins, and during the draft. I really don't need interviews with Head Coaches while the draft is going on.

Ah...nope.

Quote:
On August 7, the FCC reaffirmed its ruling that Time Warner Cable (“Time Warner”) had to carry the NFL Network for 30 days on systems just acquired from Comcast and Adelphia Communications. On August 4, Time Warner threatened to take the FCC to court if the agency did not back down and allow it to drop NFL Network. Following the release of the FCC’s second decision, Time Warner did not commit to a court fight over the need to provide consumers a 30-day notice before deleting a channel. “Time Warner Cable continues to believe that the FCC has misconstrued the notice rules and has ordered a remedy that is in clear violation of the First Amendment. The FCC's action has resulted in exacerbating, not avoiding, consumer confusion,” Time Warner spokesman Mark Harrad said.

Quote:
Time Warner and NFL Network have never had a carriage agreement, but the network had deals with Comcast and Adelphia systems that Time Warner obtained July 31 when the $16.9 billion Adelphia transaction closed. Time Warner dropped NFL Network on those systems on August 1. Claiming that it gave Time Warner the necessary 30 days to issue the proper consumer notices, NFL Network complained to the FCC within hours that it had been illegally removed by Time Warner. The second FCC ruling was again issued by Media Bureau chief Donna Gregg, an appointee of FCC chairman Kevin Martin. Time Warner may ask the five FCC commissioners to overturn Gregg’s rulings as an alternative to an immediate court challenge, which Time Warner said would involve important First Amendment issues.

Time Warner and the NFL have been haggling over terms of carriage, with the network seeking an expanded-basic position but Time Warner hoping to start a sports tier with NFL Network as a key driver of mini-tier penetration. In her 15-page order, Gregg said Time Warner’s treatment of NFL Network was “disappointing” because FCC members and outside parties “had expressed serious concern about the impact that the Adelphia transactions would have on unaffiliated programmers.”

Quote:
While the ratings for Thursday night’s game are not yet available, the NFL’s dreams of being in 65 million homes by last night’s broadcast (the goal the NFL set during the summer) became a nightmare, with Time Warner, Comcast and Charter continuing their position of not offering the NFL Network refusing to meet the NFL’s demands for 70 cents from customer cable operators service. At one point Gumbel attempted to give out the NFL Network’s website that offers cable subscribers information as to how they can contact their cable provider that aren’t offering the NFL Network

Yeah, I remember listening to them after I lost the ESPN feed. They were a little too hyped up about the Notre Dame tight end pick (Fasano?) but overall they were pretty solid.
