    That's what "I've visited the inner sanctum" means.

    If the owners and players are making higher profits but the price of a ticket keeps going up, then I don't see how those who complain are the morons. Isn't it the other way around?

    I'm glad that King Joffrey is dead.

    That's what I thought it may be due to the red/blue colored trophy holders, but I couldn't quite make it out to be 100% sure. It's something that I'm definitely going to experience next spring when I come up that way for graduation. Thanks, buddy.

    I don't watch it at all but used to be a real draftnik. Too much time wasted and now I listen on my phone while surf fishing. 4 days of draft how greedy can they get. Mark Cuban was absolutely correct.

    I kind of long for the days when I would stay home from school "sick" as an 10-11 yr old and watch the draft on ESPN starting at 9-10 in the morning. Obviously didn't know many of the names outside of the top prospects, but thinking about that brings back good memories.

    The Score in RI used to host a draft party....hundreds of Pats fans and others spend all day eating wings, drinking suds and watching the first four rounds. That was over a decade ago. Are YOU going to the nearest NFL stadium and sit in a bar/restaurant all day and night waiting for the Pats 1st pick?? Because THAT is where all this is headed. It sucks.

    BTW, whatever happened to having double-digit draft rounds? Watching that is a goldmine right there.

    Is that a bit of a tongue in cheek response because we need to add more Lombardi's? Or are you being serious, and there will be much more to it when completed? Or a little of both? ;)

    Yeah, I don't even remember the exact format, aside from what I somehow remember as being a shorter time period to complete the entire process. I imagine that teams had less time to select their picks, although I could be wrong. I want to say that Troy Brown was the greatest 13th round pick in the history of the world though.

    I know, I'm just being sarcastic due to their longer, drawn out rounds that they used to have ;)

    It is nice that they at least reduced the time for picks in each round (10 minutes for 1st, 7 in 2nd, 5 for the rest).

    In Russia we have two channels. Channel 1 is state propaganda about progress on the trans-siberian railway. Channel 2 is a KGB colonel telling you to change it back to channel 1.
