    Dear Roger,

    Quit fucking with the NFL.

    Trying to figure out this move? Repeat after me:

    I believe that all of the tinkering will lead eventually to the Super Bowl being played on Presidents' Weekend. I truly think that's where it's headed.

    There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the universe is for and why it is here it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarrely inexplicable…

    There is another theory which states that this - has - already - happened…

    Pat Kirwan did a narrative on this today. He said that the extra time allows teams to bring in FAs and still visit pro days etc. right now there is sometimes a schedule conflict. Also it's a sneaky way to provide an entre to an 18 game season and play the SB on Presidents' Day weekend. Interesting perspective.

    As for the topic at hand, I think savvy fans such as you and I know exactly why the league is doing it. I just don't understand why it's such a bad thing in some fans eyes.
    I think if the NFL doesn't want future site conflicts and likes Radio City Music Hall as the venue for the draft, this makes perfect sense. Easter is a floating holiday and is never in May. Putting it there eliminates any future site conflict due to Easter shows at RCMH.

    Someday, they are going to fuck the golden goose. It's going to happen.

    They're gradually extending things to have no offseason.

    Goodell would change Christmas day if he could. What a #@&

    I'm still not getting what's inherently worse about the draft being in mid-May as opposed to late April.

    Then again, people would find a way to bash the NFL for curing world hunger.

    I'm sure he would only do it if he were making money off of it.

    Point being, it's not that he's changing it. It that he lies about everything he fucking does like the fans don't know that he doesn't do anything unless he's making money off of it.

    Except people are most definitely complaining about the change itself, as they do with all of the other changes the league has made.

    This is the reason why. I think it sucks as I think the build up to the draft is already a couple weeks too long. Now I'll just turn off during much of the build up.
