    If you were offered your choice of:

    (A) A free ticket to the next Super Bowl, with no knowledge of whether the Pats make it or not, or
    (B) A chance to watch the Pats' war room during the draft,

    which would you take?

    The war room, but only if I could be in it and not watching it on TV.

    Three day pass to the Patriots Draft War Room, getting the "behind the scenes" view and getting in the mind of Belichick....

    ....toss in some catered meals and I'm in!

    I'm in the war room, full gear, ready to launch at BB if he doesn't grab a pass rusher early. If I hear Kraft *****in about salary and value, I'm hiding his gimlet mix. And if BB considers a trade with the Jets, that's it, I'm shutting down the phone system.

    True story: Last year on April 1st, Fat Rex called up Foxboro looking for BB to see if the Patriots could swing some Red Sox tickets for him. BB didn't take the call assuming it was an April fools joke...it wasn't.

    Superbowl ticket but that's fairly obvious given where I'm from.

    Even if I knew the Pats were playing in that Super Bowl I'd still take the War Room.

    The overriding factor would be because I have a chance (depending on how much effort and money I want to put into it) of going to the Super Bowl every year. A chance to be in the Pats war room is a once in a lifetime opportunity. To oversimplify, think of the well worn economics cliche of supply and demand: there have been over 3 million seats to Super Bowl games; this would be the first seat to the Pats war room.

    Besides, even if I don't get to see the Super Bowl live, I still get to watch it. On the other hand, I don't get to see what happens in the war room ever under any circumstances.


    War Room is my pick without any hesitation.

    "with no knowledge of whether the Pats make it or not,"

    The ticket is offered to you today for next year, so no way to know for sure.

    I don't understand how you could pick the Super Bowl tix....you can see everything on TV, but the only possible way to see everything that goes on in the war room is to be there!

    I think it depends on the location of the Super Bowl

    If it was this year and its taking place in Indianapolis,home of the hicks,then I would go with the war room - There is nothing special to visit in Indiana unless you like to watch grass grow.

    If its in LA or Miami,I go with the SB since more than likely you will be spending more than 1 day at the location.

    Super Bowl.Easy.

    I imagine that it could get quite boring in the war room for somebody just watching and even more so after the 1st day.

    I'm not a big draft fan, but I'd still take the war room. SB tix to a non-Pats game could have great scalping value, but the experience of the war room is worth more than the four or five grand you'd get by selling the tickets; a true once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see BB at work.

    Those that choose the warroom,what are you expecting it to be like actually? Hoping you're gonna get some nice chats in with BB? Maybe Tom Brady shows up and drink a beer with him? They'll probably make you sit in the corner and not utter a word. The war room is serious business and i doubt it's a whole lot of fun.

    The first early picks would be very interesting i guess.


    EDIT:how the hell do you embed on this forum?

    Wow, was expecting a comment about not wanting the war room since the Pats won't pick for a few hours, and then trade down anyways. It's the off-season, the haters must go into hiding.

    I'd pick the Super Bowl, just because I think we'll be there this season ;)

    But the war room would be fascinating. There's probably all sorts of stuff going on behind the scenes, millions of phone calls talking up deals and fizzling out, it'd be really cool to be there. Though I'm sure BB would be thrilled with a spectator being there taking up space... :D

    How about the Ground Round?

    Does the warroom include a complimentary hoodie?

    I have been to a few SBs so this is a no Brainer for me.

    But I am pretty suprised at how many have chose the War Room over the game.

    having been to the game and in the stands I can tell you it is pretty amazing. And I can promise you the excitement and fun will be so much greater at the game.

    Being in the war room would give you some amazing insight and would be highly educational but not as fun. And since nothing beats the memory of being in the stands for a SB and partying the win on Bourbon St then the one thing the War Room offers is not going to be as good as the SB. Oh wait the SB isnt neccessarily the Pats why not just make it a Pats sb for this excercise.

    With my luck on free items it would end up being Colts/Giants.

    I'll pay for tickets if the Pats get into the Super Bowl. No one gets access to the War Room. So I would go there.

    It isn't a case of being fun. It is that it would be fascinating to see what the Pats' draft board looks like, how they negotiate for potential trades while they are on the clock, what they do when the guy they are targetting gets picked and potentially there is no one on the board they particularly want at that pick, etc.


    Personally I would be happy to sit in the corner and just watch to see that.

    I have already been to a Patriots Super Bowl. So I am in a little different position than most here. But even if I haven't, I wouldn't give access to the War what might be the possibility to see the Jets, Colts, or Chargers win the Super Bowl.

    I've been to three Pats Super Bowls and I'd ALWAYS take the ticket -- you can sell it and make $3k if the Pats aren't there. I'll bet the war room isn't as dramatic as everyone imagines. I figure they know days ahead of time who they're going to pick anyway.
