3 Day Draft May Happen In 2010

Nfl.com has reported that the NFL has confirmed this, here is what the article said.

The NFL confirmed reports that the league is considering the idea of starting the 2010 draft in prime time on a Thursday night and making it a three-day event but added that no decision has been made.

The Dallas Morning News reported that the NFL was considering holding the first round of the draft on a Thursday night, the second and third rounds on a Friday night and rounds 4 through 7 on a Saturday. “We think it can be very appealing from a fan’s standpoint and an audience standpoint,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in the story.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy posted the same details on his Twitter channel, asking his “followers” to let him know what they thought.

Last year, the NFL shortened the time between first-round picks from 15 minutes to 10 minutes, and this year’s first round took 3:23 — making it the fastest first round since 1990 (when there were four fewer teams in the league).

So what do yall think of this idea, leave a comment below and let me know.

    I’m against it only because I work the draft every year and the current times allow me to double dip and keep my Friday and Saturday night gigs as well.

    It has its pros and cons… Sunday is really long and drawn out how it is now, but starting on a Thursday? Seems odd.

    Theres Goodell trying to change the rules again.. go figure.
