    That drives me crazy. WHY 15 minutes? I can see why they GIVE them that much time, but WHY do they use ALL of it? I mean, don't they already KNOW who they are gonna pick by the time their number comes up? They should be able to have the whole first round DONE in an hour!
    I know......it must be for TV time or something.
    AND to stretch out the whole thing for DAYS!!!

    I've never watched the draft, and I won't watch it this year either. I don't have anything against it, it's just that I always have something better to do and I don't have the patience. I would enjoy it if there wasn't so much time between picks.

    On Saturday I'll be visiting friends in Quinnesec, Kingsford, and Iron Mountain, Michigan. I even have a date, which almost never happens. Hey, I bet she would be really impressed if I insisted that we watch the draft together! Seriously, I hope they don't have a TV on in the restaurant, or I'll be constantly turning my head, trying to get a look at which players are getting picked.

    Interesting to have a Vikes fan kid anybody about waiting for draft picks.

    At least we make ours on time. :packbeer:

    There is a draft on Saturday??? :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:
    I will be glued to the computer/tv/radio wishing they would get to GB's spot before the end of the day. :kickcan:
    If it goes like the last couple of years, I will scream every time TT trades down in the draft
    to pick up yet another 6th or 7th round selection. :rubeyes:

    As it's what he's done in the past, I'm guessing there's a pretty good chance of him trading down several times again this year. You have to remember that TT subscribes to the "High-Diver" drafting philosophy. That is, depth is more important than score. :razz:

    As to what I'll be doing on Saturday, I think I'll DVR it and find something else to do for the first few hours. That way I can watch it but fast-forward through the commercials and really boring stuff so that I hit it live about the time Green Bay gets on the clock.

    Yep clearly I wasn't thinking clearly when I agreed, and it isn't like I can change it because the plane tickets are purchased and this is like the only weekend that I could get there... they better have a TV in the Jewelry store :)
