Default NFL To crack down on tipping off draft picks...

I sure hope what the NFL is saying here is true. It's perturbed me to no end to see the cameras showing the players getting "The Call" and the whole damn world knows before it's announced.

It might be only me but I'd like to be somewhat surprised and hear it from the Commish at the podium like it used to be.

Anyway, hope it's true.

Right on, I agree. It takes all the suspense and excitement out of it. I dont want to know the pick until Rog announces it.

That pissed me off when Kareem Jackson was drafted. Then they just skipped us altogether in showing the hightlights.

I hate it, but my understanding is it's a 'hey, want to come play for us call?'

Which 99% of the time isn't needed, but some times you have the Eli Mannings of the world....

"The NFL subsequently confirmed it won't show draftees on the phone in the green room before the announced pick on the first night of the draft."

So glad they decided to do this, such a simple change but it makes watching the draft so much better. I can't wait till next Thursday!

Default Re: NFL To crack down on tipping off draft picks...

Nothing to do with this subject.

Goodell is the worst commish in NFL history. Who was a worse commish? He started with a gold mine that Tagliabue and his predicessors left him. Then Goodell made the the decision to crap on their legacy. The sad part is that the game we love is being ruined by a man that cares nothing about the game, but is a power monger/legaleese. (sp?) After the latest labor agreement that Kraft/BoBBy pushed through, is going to keep Rodger in power for a long time.

Aikman has it right, the NFL is following the path of MLB. It make take Rodger a while to get them to the level of the MLB. But he's doing everything he can to run the game that we love into the ground. Goodell is doing this as he's being instructed (like the great lawyer he is) by owners like Mara/BoBBy/Kraft all in the name of $$$$.

It really kinda makes me sad. Because the game I grew up with was the most action filled sport on the face of the earth. Action doesn't always mean points on the scoreboard. One of the best games I've seen in my lifetime was the Oiler/Steeler game on Monday night that ended up 9-6. It was a full intensity burtal game, with players being taken off the field left and right. That's when men played this game for the love of the game. God how I miss those days of the NFL.

Thanks for ruining all of that GoD'ell

Thanks GoD'ell for no longer making the draft the focus of my party on draft Saturday.

Agreed. Seeing these blubbering babies on the phone before the pick is announced ruined the surprise for me.

Default Re: NFL To crack down on tipping off draft picks...

Today I was listening to NFL on Sirius and they were talking about the things they'd like to change for the draft:

More Mayocking : Leave the draft experts at home if they aren't going to give a complete detail of why this or that player is a good pro player like Mayock who provides detail of the tangibles the NFL requires.

Of course they talked about not showing the players before they get announced. That's the part I heard.

I would add:

Having draft coverage at some of these NFL sites that have draft parties like at Reliant. Go there and ask fans who they want or what they did or didn't like right before their team is about to pick or after they are going to pick.

Have coverage with every team coaches or GMs not just Baltimore, NYJ, and New England. When teams pick go straight to their war room and ask questions.

Default Re: NFL To crack down on tipping off draft picks...

My ideal draft day scenario:

Each pick is announced, and then the talking heads show clips of that player in college and talk about how he is going to fit into his new NFL team.

Next player, same deal.

I hate when they spend huge percentage of time talking about one player at the expense of the others. If I've watched to the Texans pick, I want to hear analysis of the texans pick. Not a pick 5 choices ago

Exactly.

I'd also like more highlights of the players. You don't have to keep going back to show the faces of the guys talking on ESPN. Just show the highlights with their voices over it.

This.




If I recall, last year I think they showed a little bit of jj and was off talking about someone else. Hell later in the rounds, I think they went to a commercial break when the Texans were up . And had to see who they selected on the ticker

Yeah, that kinda pissed me off for a few years now. Now that we're getting a little more national media attention, do any of you folks think that will change?

To make the draft better, keep Chris Berman from being anywhere near it. His schtick got old years ago.

I wish there was another outlet to watch the draft besides NFL network and espn.

I wish a local station did the draft. I'd like to flip back and forth and be able to get in depth coverage of the texans' picks.

Default Re: NFL To crack down on tipping off draft picks...

I also wish they would not talk about vets or retired players, This is about the new guys being drafted. If they feel need to ramble between picks make it about those not drafted yet and only the next team on the clock.
