Remember a few years back when ESPN would put the cameras on the kids talking on the phone to the team drafting them and then celebrating with their families before the picks were announced? They've stopped doing that since but that was the worst draft to watch ever.

So the announcement hit twitter first, then it will be shown on TV with a short delay.. why not just wait to view the forum before it's on TV?

 

Am I missing something?

A couple years back, people were getting picks off the internet SEVERAL minutes before they were announced on TV. At one point, twitter was ahead by 3-4 picks.   They weren't the official announcements, often they were watching prospects' families or even the prospects' own twitter accounts for those leaks

 

The forum mods have said to wait until its announced by the commissioner on TV.

3-4 picks delay is understandable annoying I thought it was like 30-60 secs

No, it was WAY ahead.  The absolute worst year for it was the year we selected Dorsett, that got announced some 15 to 20 minutes prior by someone who saw it posted on twitter by either Dorsett's mom or sister, I forget which.

Multi-taskers.

i usually have both espn AND nfl channel on and i cruise internet (this forum, cbs, espn,fox etc ) for more player detail.

  So i can see how it could happen.  I'm rather surprised there is that big of a delay actually.

It was bad and there were certain posters who started threads about the picks before they were announced

It should be!  ...and all posting should be suspended for the rest of the draft.

Just avoid this website for about 30 seconds leading up to the pick. Not that hard to avoid this type of spoiler.

Right, also not that hard to avoid posting that type of spoiler...

There is a special place in hell for those who share spoilers of any type.

 

It is literally in the name, you are spoiling it for others.  What is your (no pun intended) endgame here?!

So the live broadcast is on a delay?

I'm not really a big draft guy.   It don't matter to me.   

Could I get a notification of who is drafted before it is announced "live"?

If we stay at 26,  I'll be in bed long before we pick.     I'll have a 25 page thread to read in the morning

I've seen the picks get announced on Twitter a full 5-10 minutes prior to them being announced on the live broadcast.

I want to understand it. I really do. Can anyone explain it to me?

 

For me personally, learning who the draft pick is a little early isn't that big of a spoiler.  I just want to know who the Colts picked.  Watching an orangutan touch a screen for the big reveal doesn't really do anything for me, so I get where you're coming from about the draft.  Once I know who the pick is, I'm just gonna go start watching tape of that player anyway.  I'm not sticking around for whatever Kiper has to say.

 

But if you really did just spoil GoT and Endgame for me, I'm gonna be really * off at you, dude.  Just say you were joking around so I can go back to being ignorant of what happens.  I support myself and don't have anyone to help share bills.  I've already got monthly bills for rent, food, insurance, phone, internet, etc. and I'm trying to save money instead of splurging on entertainment as soon as it's released.  I can't afford to go to the movie theater for every new movie release or to pay a monthly fee for HBO just for the four hours of GOT that will air that month.  I have to wait for more affordable options like once the season is over, I'll pay the fee for one month and binge-watch the whole season.  It's more economical that way.

 

But I still want to enjoy the entertainment the same way others enjoyed it at the time of release.  I want to be surprised by what happens, especially when it's the final season/movie in a series.  I'm emotionally invested in the story, and I want to experience it as intended, not secondhand from some stranger.  I have to use "selective vision" while on the internet before I get caught up on the same entertainment as everyone else.  I thought I was safe in a football forum, but apparently I can't even escape spoilers in a football forum.  :flaming:

    • I don't agree.  Now the cream at the top is great, but there is a huge drop off to the next level.  I think most teams have as good or better WR history.     https://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/clt/career-receiving.htm
    • Bill was very good.  He did suffer from some bad passing offenses.
    • While I agree Fountain has to work for it, I'd say he's probably in the driver seat assuming he's 100% healthy.   Patmon - raw guy who doesn't play to his size, and needs to add to, and improve his route tree. I doubt we keep 3 X WRs, and I don't see him jumping Pittman and Pascal for the top 2 spots. IMO, they'd have to move Pascal to run mostly out of the slot (which is possible) for him to take the #2 X spot. IMO, he ends up on the practice squad for a year unless we have an injury in the X area.   Johnson - the digs on him have always been his hands and his toughness. Unless he's become a lot more physical, his position flexibility is likely limited to Z. He's not going to be an X given the comp there, and unless he's tough enough to run across the middle as slot and catch, his chances are low IMO.    I do like Dulin, and he looked great when given a chance to return. He's a tough kid and could literally line up everywhere (although I prefer more size at X). I'd absolutely love to have him and Hines as our two primary return guys. Pascal could fill in as backup. I'd keep Campbell safely away from STs.   As far as Fountain is concerned, the biggest dig on him was his route tree. From everything I read, he worked his rear end off and improved dramatically in that area last off season. IMO, he plays bigger than he is, and could also line up just about everywhere like Dulin. 
    • yeah i might have gone over board with the super bowl talk. still it took peyton a while to win a playoff game but i think he deserved respect before that anyway 
    • since its a topic here i'll guess one more super bowl with PM, but not predicting 2-3 more dynasty    they are going to lose some good players after this contract and have to draft really well to keep it up.  hes also not the most durable qb and he does take some risks
