I find the Draft to be loud and obnoxious. Next year, if I'm not drunk in a bar, I won't watch it. It gave me a headache.

Re: Espn and timing of commercials.

I thought I noticed more commercials overall but not really sure, could have been just as many commercials in the past. In any event it is starting to suck now. When they used to start on Saturday it seemed to be more football, highlights of the young players, and less commercials.

The beginning of the end. When the "making of the show" becomes bigger than the show!

ESPN and the NFL combining 2nights of prime time draft?
commercials scheduling to jam as many as they can in there,
Just like the game itself it is all about the money.

Re: Espn and timing of commercials.

Why does it now take them three days to do what used to take a day and a half?

A Friday Saturday thing is sufficient. And we can have a crawfish boil on Saturday to chitchat about it.

Because people will watch.

And because sponsors will pay.

Re: Espn and timing of commercials.

They need to incorporate few preseason drafts. This week could be one. Then all picks are put back in the pot for the real draft next weekend. Just an idea.
