    The draft is moving yet again:

    NFL | Draft being held at Radio City Music Hall
    Wed, 22 Mar 2006 09:50:31 -0800

    The Associated Press reports the 2006 NFL Draft will be held April 29-30 at Radio City Music Hall in New York. The 2005 draft was held at the Javits Convention Center, moving from the theater at Madison Square Garden because the NFL was upset with Garden management for opposing the proposal for a new stadium for the Jets on Manhattan's West Side. The proposal ended up being rejected by a state committee.

    I wish they held the draft on a rotating basis around the cities in the league. Or maybe as a perk for winning the Super Bowl.

    Visiting Manhatten Draft weekend would be money well spent.

    True Dat. But if the draft location rotated, more people would have the opportunity to boo players like Donovan McNabb.

    True dat. I think its a bargaining chip for NY right now. So unless another city needs a stadium, dont look for it to move.

    That would be cool though. Boo Reggie Bush, and then when he turns out to be great, act like I loved the pick.

    j/k
