I like the idea. Only thing that sucks is I will still be in school at that time. Why not Friday, Saturday, Sunday?

You'll be in school at 7:30 on a Thursday night? Even if you're West Coast, that's still 4:30...and you should be home by then. Or are you a night school person?

What's the deal with always changing time every year. An entire round on a thursday night starting at 7:30??? Why Thursday night and not Friday night??

its purely for ratings and money for the nfl. thursday night is the primo of the primetime slots. many of the most successful and highest rated shows have held that spot-

This commish is a perfect example of a Micro-Manager.

He seems to be constantly messing with the little things that don't need to be changed to the point that it seems that his influence is inappropriate....yet with the big decisions he seems to have a track record of avoidance or "situational ethics"...which makes his decisions arbitrary.

Goodell is Gary Bettman, v2.0.

I swear to God, the two are related somehow. They're both doing their damndest to ruin their respective sports, that's for sure.

I can't think of one good reason why the draft needs to be 3 days long and start on a Thursday night. It's totally unnecessary, but when has that ever stopped Good-Deal before?

As if I needed another reason to dislike the guy!

7 days of listening to the crowd chant "CHEATERS...CHEATERS" with every *Patriot pick does have some appeal!!

Yep. Of course, Good Deal didn't do anything as lame as dumping the Wales Conference and Patrick Division names.

And he didn't blow a golden opportunity like Bettman in the fall of 1994. The NHL should have contacted the network that had the MLB postseason and offered them FREE hockey games in those time slots.

So does every sports bar in the country. It's going to kill business for them on a weekend they counted on every year.

So much for our draft day Steelers reunion at Martino's. :banging:
