The NFL Draft is far too big a spectacle (for them anyway) for them to entrust it to smaller markets. I mean if they're thinking of giving EACH of the first three rounds it's own night then what chance does KC or St. Louis have of hosting it. Come on man. Where's the necessary glitz and glamour in that? Does KC even have a green room? They come too far from the days of meeting in a Hupmoblile showroom in Canton, Ohio to back track now. LOL Actually Chicago does make sense because it puts it in the central time zone so the folks in SF (who cares about LA, they don't even have a team) and Seattle won't have to take off work too early to tune in. Besides Goddell won't give Emmanuel the SB he wants so this is one way of tossing him a bone and the millions the event will attract without having to build any new infrastructure to accommodate. Sounds like a plan Stan.
