    Wow! You have a full time job and kids! And you own a home!!!!

    I'm in my 30s with 2 kids. Have owned a home since I was 23 (not sure that really matters in any of this, but since you're waving your dick around....). Believe it or not, I can get together with my buddies and not get shitfaced. Even when we did the draft day before kids came around, we didn't drink much... we just eat a lot. It's called a day in the basement while my wife runs around with the kids and watches them. I do the same for her when she needs a girls' night. Don't let me bump you off your high horse though. I understand not everyone is like me and doesn't have the same tastes... was just voicing my want for the old format and from my non-scientific anecdotal asking around, most have agreed with me. Not saying it's absolutely true everywhere... just in my circles.

    Please give us back a late April two day draft. The new format is not as entertaining.

    eh, if they stretch it one more day then it would go 1st Round (Day 1), 2nd round (Day 2), 3rd and 4th round (Day 3), and 5th, 6th and 7th round (Day 4).

    Not much different than what they currently do, and by the time you hit the 5th round, the picks really do not matter all that much anyway.

    Screw it. There are seven rounds, give each round its own day. Make it a week long event. If you are going to make it four days, why not? Oh yeah.... because people don't really care much about the later rounds.

    I vote for spreading it out to 1 rd a weekend. That way everyone can look for the NEXT MAN UP to draft. :1 4 45[1]:

    That's the problem, people are already tuning out for the final few rounds, so why give them their own day?

    First three rounds are my limit. After that, most of the guys drafted are players you might need to be a hardcore college football fan to know.

    Split it into two days. 1-3 day 1, 4-7 day two. Aren't most of the 4-7 rounders just names across the screen anyway?

    I'll do you one better. They only play games 5 months out of the year. That leaves 7 months left. Perfect. One round per month.

    I will one up you. One round a month.... one pick a month. Super Bowl teams do not get a pick unless they trade in to get one ;)
