Anybody want to do the math and figure out what time we'll be listening to our pick at #20?

I'm thinking it's going to be a late night...not a great family-oriented event on a school-night, but a bigger party for the grown-ups. Start lining up those babysitters now!

I know one thing for sure...I'm already starting to feel it...I'm going to be sick on Friday and won't be able to go to work. Stupid allergies!

I went last year and that didn't end so well for me . As a matter of fact I don't think n e texans event ends well for me( draft party ,training camp, or the games. Seems like every time I go, I end up going to brickhouse with my brother afterwards. Maybe I should just go with the wife this year. lol

I think Goodell ruined draft weekend for alot of fans. I've had a draft party for years and now nobody can really party on thurday night. If he was going to stretch it out over 3 days then he should have made it friday through sunday. Thursday night just plain sucks compared to saturday imho.

Goddell screwed up a good thing.

Friday thru Sunday would've been a good time.

Hang out at draft party on Friday night. Get up and watch the draft with friends on Saturday. I guess that makes to much sense.

Default Re: 2010 Draft party

I'll be there, as usual.
To answer a previous question: The first round has a 10 minute limit per pick, so mathematically our pick would be as late as 3 hours 10 minutes into the draft if each team were to take max time for their selection.
(19 teams before us * 10min each = 190min).
I think the timer is reset in the event of a trade, giving a full ten minutes to the team that traded into that spot, but I'm not 100% sure of how that works. If time is added then, of course, our pick could end up occurring a bit later.

I actually agree with you here. It would definitely make it better for the fans, which I thought were the primary target here. Two nights of partys and get-together = mo money fo all

doesn't bother me I'll just take another vacation day

what does bother me is the draft being always in NY & combine Indianapolis. If this is truely expansion of our national interest the draft process should be treated just like a Superbowl & opened up for bidding in other cities. Houston has the faciltities & interest to host such events as much as NY or Indy

Gary do not let this affect your gpa

Goodel has been messing with everything and he is kinda turning out like Obama and his football picks. Pro Bowl in Miami before the SB, Thursday night draft. Now he has the Jets Owner to contend with. What is next Roger come on let us know.

Default Re: 2010 Draft party

I am boycotting the draft. I think it's retarded to have this thing on a weekday night. I just don't see how they expect to get better ratings going up against Thursday prime time television (Grey's Anatomy, etc.)

The way it was, people would have draft parties on Saturday and all these casual fans who normally wouldn't tune into the draft if there wasn't a party, you know, the people who will be watching Grey's Anatomy on Thursday, are watching the draft on Saturday at a party when there's nothing else on.

So screw 'em. Put the draft back on Saturday or I'm not watching. I'll check out Bones or CSI or I'm sure there'll be an Astros game on or something. The internet will tell me who the Texans drafted. I don't need there little prime time show.

I see alot wrong with a Weekday, 1st Round-only division of the Draft. But, anyone think of the real possibility of the Texans trading down out of the 1st round (likely the 1st pick moved to the 2nd Round)? After all the schedule alterations that most working people would have to make to attend (if they even can), you aren't likely just to say, "Oh well, I'll just be sticking around for the 2nd Round anyway.".................There won't be a 2nd round to wait for........until the next day...........not at Reliant with the fanfare that most of us have looked forward to, celebrating together the introduction of our top pick(s). Just my personal feeling on the subject.

Yeah, that could kind of suck. Then again, we could still celebrate the trade down. Most of the draft in the first round is about the anticipation anyway.

Also, it seems silly to me that Goodell's decision-making regarding the draft would be heavily affected by the impact on stadium-site draft parties. That seems like a fairly tiny segment of the fandom. Having said that, I'm driving down with Barrett from Austin. Of course, we've decided to make it a two-day party anyway. We'll be hanging out in Houston to watch rounds 2 and 3.

I think that by the time the Texans pick, if may be pass their bed time...If kids even have those anymore.

What do I know; I don't have kids...I am sure some parents don't care about appearances and will have their kids out all hours of night while they are drinking.
