    At the warroom? More like standing beside Rt. 1 because ESPN isn't even allowed in Patriots Place by this point.

    Sending Wendi Nix instead of someone who knows football is sort of insulting if you ask me.

    I have a feeling she and her camera man are going to be all alone on the field or in the parking lot. I don't see BB or any of the staff coming out of the war room while the draft is unfolding to do an interview with Reiss, much less espn. You won't see him until the post-draft presser; reporting 'live' from Gillette is just window dressing for espn to convince casual fans that they're going to be the first to (incorrectly) report breaking news.

    All it says is that she'll be reporting from Gilette/"on-site". For all we know she could be reporting from the 50yd line:confused2:

    Re: The enemy trying to get us to watch.

    I feel bad for Nix. She was hired by ESPN because she would have access to the because of her ties from when she worked for Channel 4 (like Ed Warner for the Cowboys or Sal Pal for the Eagles). Then ESPN screwed it all up for her because they lost access because of their witch-hunt of Belichick. I am kinda glad she is getting some, but most likely very limited access. I've got nothing against her.

    You guys have got to get over your persecution complex RE: ESPN. Seriously.

    Watch whichever draft show seems more interesting to you and try to keep some goddamn perspective here, it's just a sport.

    Do we even know whether ESPN lost access or is it just wishful thinking?

    I don't have a choich - Charter doesn't carry the NFL network, so I'm stuck with ESPN.

    Good to know, I watch NFLN daily and was planning on not changing over to ESPN at all but with this now I'm click over to watch the Pats coverage. The Pats will definitely be busy on draft day with 11 picks and they'll be moving up and down the board with all that flexibility so it's a smart move on ESPN's part.

    Wendi Nix is appealing?
