You think the fins will wear the throwback uniforms again like in 2003?!!!

I wish we would wear them, but I think I heard that they won't be. I don't know why the Fins don't break out the throwbacks, they could sell tons more jerseys and merchandise that way.

Crash, we got Fins-'Boys on Turkey Day!!


Hey I remember a VERY relevant Cowboys-Dolphins thanksgiving day loss that the team in Dallas put behind them and NEVER looked back.... I welcome that again :evil:


Don't like watching Cowboy games at Sun Tavern?


I like watching as many games as possible, and I'd rather watch the games against the local teams at HOME... I'm less likely to punch a front-running idiot gassed up on training beer that way :P

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease

I find it hilarious that the NFL's having a draft on the one hand, while on the other doing everything to keep the league shut down (giving coaches 'days off' when the players come to workouts that are supposed to be open, not allowing players to be traded during the draft, etc).

It's the same reason they've stupidly moved this to Prime Time on Thursday instead of leaving it as a WEEKEND thing like it should be..... ratings....the whole drama of what team is gonna be dumb enough to take Cam Newton.... the trades and all the hype of a first round pick... all too big for the NFL to miss out on... and it's the one time the NFL is relevant again until August...

It does suck that you can't trade players for picks.... I'd not know what to do in my Madden league without that :P

Shot! I forgot about that. Too bad I will miss it during the NHL Playoffs.

I guess I will just DVR it and watch it on Saturday morning before the rest of the draft.

Odin be praised! I could not agree more.

In effect they have buried what should be a huge event into an after thought amongst other viewing options.

I LOVED Saturday draft day, it was a HUGE event for me. It was literally a holiday. The one Spring day when I scheduled nothing and just watched the whole presentation from pre-pre draft 10am through post draft day analysis. But the NFL has never been a fan friendly league in the past decade.

Nashville game isn't till 9, you have time for both......


Nope, I usually don't have time to watch TV till 9pm.

Hoping Carolina takes Cam Newton. A.J. Green would be a nice player to have, especially with Smith probably gone, but Newton has the most upside for sure. Dareus and Peterson are nice pieces to build with, but not #1 overall upside like Cam.

I don't mind the new format myself, especially with less time between picks. It became tedious watching the first round with fifteen minutes between picks and teams sucking up most of the clock when they didn't need to. Plus it's nice not to have to spend a sunny weekend day indoors when your team's in the first couple rounds :P

I would prefer they started at 7 instead of 8 tonight, especially with the fact my team isn't gonna wind up picking till 11:30 but whatever.
