Out of the Blue

Well it will remain to be seen how the bold move my Giants made during yesterday's draft will play out, but as a fan always looking for reasons to be optimistic, I am certainly pleased at how trading for the rights to Eli Manning represents a commitment to building a contender. Personal considerations aside, that was easily the most entertaining draft I've ever seen, with big trade after big trade as if it was a rotisserie league. And the fun for Big Blue doesn't end, as their fourth round pick is the first in the round, which makes it the first pick of the day today, so, with all night to reevaluate the remaining players, they should be in position to nab a bargain.

16. NFL Draft Apr 25, 2004, 14:32 KaptinGimpy
Why is it that the NFL and NBA both feel compelled to have the commissioner announce each and every pick. I got sick of that guy 3 picks into the draft. Let the teams go up and announce their own pick like in the NHL.

And who was the genius at ESPN that decided to list the teams on your ticker in alphabetical order rather than by draft order. People want to know who was picked by whom, in what order, and who is coming up. Scrolling the teams alphabetically made it impossible to follow.
