I will try as this will be my 2nd draft...but I doubt it but I am definately watching the whole first dayyyy

I usually watch the first 5 picks after that I get bored but I'll be watching out for Miami in the 2nd round.

I can take 15 mins and read about it in the paper. I have no life, but even I can find something better to do. Stare at a wall, see how many times 3.5 goes into 123,578,744, read the dictionary....options are endless people.

I do for the 1st day but not the second. I order pizza and drink lots of coke

I usually just watch tv then switch over every now and then and see the update.

I must say that I agree with coolguy3

I don't want to spend my weekend in front of my TV to see which guy Miami is drafting and that won't make the team anyway (late round).

I will be checking on the internet who we picked but I won't follow it live.

I follow the 1st day.. go to shulas in miami lakes and make it an outing with the guys.. we get nice and drunk.. run up a 3 digit bar tab and play draft games with the picks. we try and guess whos getting picked next or what position goes to that team.. loser takes a shot. So we are not wasteing a day but getting wasted . its fun after that we go out and party with the wives(they bitch about us not being home all day)

I did watch the entire draft last year even though we had no 1st or 2nd round picks... I was just crossing off people I had listed as Miami bound players and had fun with it... I had buddies over with beer and pizza and we just gave our predictions on who will draft who while their on the clock and while the 15 minutes went up for the team, we'd throw the football around outside... it's really not that bad... last year, the first day lasted, I believe 10 hours...fro 10 AM to 8 PM...
But you bet I'll be watching this one ... I got my value board right with me and I'm ready to roll....Can't wait til next year when Miami finally has all thier first day picks....

I watch the whole draft except I occasionally go out (mostly during the first round) to shoot some hoops and stuff like that. I like the second day more than the first day because usually it includes more Fins involvement and there are more picks.

From the beginning to end PLUS pre draft.

Hello, my name is bigbry and I am a draft junkie.

I watch it the first day and flip the channels between picks until round 3 when it's like 5 minutes between picks. If you miss a pick there's always the ticker at the bottom of the screen.

The problem I have with round one is that, TEAM ONE will be on the clock for 14 minute, then TEAM TWO makes a trade with TEAM ONE and then TEAM TWO gets another 15 minutes!!!! You can go a half hour with only one pick.
It seems to me that when the pick is made it's for a picticular prospect that they have in mind, so they should only get 5 minutes to make up their mind.

I typically watch most of the first 2 rounds (until I can't stand the boredom) and keep tabs on it the rest of the time.

For a football fan watching the draft is kinda like an alcoholic drinking hairspray. Probably causes more pain than pleasure but you're so overcome with cravings you don't care.

Yea, I'm a junkie too. I watch the whole thing. I try to get other stuff done, but I'm always in view of the TV.

04-23-2003, 06:17 PM
I'm a member of the club. I watch from pre-draft to the bitter end. I have no friends that even like sports. And I just chill out by myself every weekend anyway. So it's just that much better. Me and my brother used to always watch the drafts together all the way thru and keep stats, make predicitions, etc.

As for THIS year....I'll be watching, eating some pizza, and chatting it up here and on Canephins chatroom: http://www.canephins.homestead.com/dolphins.html

Hello rafael.

I like all the info on the players and how they trained and stuff like that.... I find the rest kinda boring....Especially with like the number 1 pick when it still takes them 10 minutes to announce who they picked even though they already have contracts in place.
