View Full Version : ESPN.com "On The Clock" Series

Is anyone else keeping an eye on this? Everyday up until the day before they draft they are doing a writeup for each team who's pick falls on that day. They talk about team needs and all that and then they make a pick for the team. Problem is, they started in descending order (so Colts were the first article on March 15th and Raiders will be the last article on April 20) and they have the same player being chosen twice. For example, yesterday was the Panthers' pick and they had them take Paul Posluszny, but back on March 20 they had the PATRIOTS take Paul Posluszny. The same happened with Darrell Revis and one other player I can't remember. Seems like a dumb way to do it, having a player taken more than once. If they are going to take a player that they already have taken, then they should do an update on that first team with a new pick, since the guy they projected them taking just got taken off the board before their pick.

Here's the link to todays (with all the previous days on the right) for anyone who hasn't seen this series and wants to check it out:

Better from ESPN?

Thats funny....ESPN is a joke. The whole channel is just a advetisment from ABC and Disney. Did you see how they even tied that stupid Will Farrell movie into a segment last week.

If I didn't love sporst so much I would never watch ESPN.

Thank God for ESPNNEWS.
If I hear stewart Scott call Philadelpia the Iliadel one more time I will puke@

I agree, its stupid as heck to do it in descending order. Their so stupid i bet they dont even realize they have the same player going 2 times.

Yea, and on two seperate occasions (Darrell Revis and Paul Posluszny).

Thank God for the NFL Network! :up:

Man, this is THE perfect network for me. I'm a diehard football fan and pretty much don't pay attention to the other sports. I have my favorite teams but I never watch on TV or pay attention to stats/scores/league leaders etc.

I cannot stand basketball, and the only time I even acknowledge it exists would be the Final Four tourney. For some reason I like basketball during the tourney, but my hatred for it returns the second it ends :lol:

I don't hate baseball, but I'm not a fan either. My GOD is it boring to watch, and there are so many damn games you are just flooded with baseball crap from April to October.

I USED to like Hockey when I was younger, but then it too got old and boring to watch, and it only seems to be getting worse

NASCAR is OK. I love the Bristol and Talledega tracks, and Daytona and Martinsville are cool too, but every other track looks exactly the same and it gets old. Road courses are cool, but most of the drivers in NASCAR suck at them so the races waste a lot of potential excitement.

Golf/Tennis don't get any of my attention

and lastly, POKER is NOT a SPORT :fire:

I hate watching all the ESPN shows and having to sit through crap I don't care about while waiting for the football news of the day. That is why NFL Network is perfect, it's ALL football, ALL day. No waiting for the football news, because it never ends. No watching 956765876325786 baseball highlights while waiting for football news, only to find out it's a 1 minute news story about David Carr signing with the Panthers
