Well, close enough, anyway:

Draft expands to 3 days, Round 1 on Thursday (nfl.com)

Round 1 is set for Thursday, April 22, with a 7:30 pm Eastern start. Rounds 2 and 3 would be on Friday, starting at 6:30, and then rounds 4-7 starting at 10am on Saturday.

So, to make it "more accessible to fans", not only do they start the draft on THURSDAY NIGHT, but it'll still be 4:30 on the West Coast, and then the Friday broadcast starts at 3:30. (and yes, for people who occasionally read the baseball thread as well, I'm aware of the irony of me using this example when I popped off at West Coasters being upset about missing the start of World Series games.) What was wrong with it just being an all-weekend affair, anyway?

Wow, this kind of just slipped under the radar. I really liked the way they've been doing it. It's the one big NFL weekend in Spring. It's an event. I can't say I like anything about the new plan.

Normally I'd agree this is just a weird move, but for the past three years I've missed the first day of the draft due to non-sports friends always making plans that weekend. So instead of getting the news about picks via text, I might actually be able to *see* the friggin' Draft this year.

I wasn't there, but I remember seeing things about it on the local news. With Cranston it really was that simple. He got ejected for fighting with an OL (Rich Butcofski) during the game, and fans were heckling him.
