Gentleman's Agreement to Not Tip the Picks in Advance

All kidding aside I think it is a good idea. I usually avoid the webzone until the pick is made and people are freaking out to avoid spoilers.

Yeah but once the pick is announced the Webzone crashes for like the next 5 minutes anyways.
Very true, but that adds to the legend of the webzone. People punching their F5 key to try and see all the reactions and get in their hate of the front office.

I agree this is a great idea. It totally ruins it when people do that.

how do you know ?
LaCanfora is a national treasure...not.

Ghost and I have been friends for years. He bolded LaCanfora in the text. And, even if he was playing, I would still laugh. The word picture is...nasty.

ESPN and the NFL Network have agreed to avoid showing the Green room during coverage of the draft tonight. It ruins the suspense of the pick. One of the great joys of the draft is not knowing until the card is brought to the podium. I salute the two networks for bringing back the drama. However, numerous bloggers, such as Jason LaCanfora, of CBS, have gone on record stating they will Tweet out the picks before the Commish hits the stage.

In order to keep the drama alive, I encourage and propose a Gentleman's and Gentleladies' agreement to not post the pick on the board before the Commish makes the call.

What do you all think?

Is there a douchier douchebag than this guy???

hey Maddog is a good dude.

No, he means LaCanfora.

lol...I meant LaCanfora. MD is many things I'm sure, but he doesn't strike me as a douchebag.

If someone wants to know ahead of time, they can go into that thread, if not, stay inside the regular draft thread and wait for the TV announcement, should really ease some of the chaos and irritated people we had last year.


Agreed. Wonder if the mods can help with this.

Look I am in complete agreement, it's just that.....it seems entirely unenforceable. I only hope that LaCanfora gets embarrassed somehow.

Hoping that a deal was worked out to increase the server capacity for the draft, if that is possible.
