The NFL Draft has Lost its Luster
This NFL labor dispute is killing me. Normally at this time of the year (NFL draft time), I’m as excited as can be about football. I normally have watched ESPN enough to be familiar with the college crop of players going into the draft. I normally have already penciled out which guys I hope my hometown squad (Go Raiders!) will pick in the draft. And right after the draft, I normally can’t wait to read in more detail about the players my team ended up drafting. I even enjoy forecasting what their ratings will be on the next year’s version of Madden!
But this year I just don’t feel that same excitement. I guess it’s hard to get amped when you aren’t even sure if there’s going to be a season next year. In fact, it’s bewildering that teams can even be allowed to make draft picks at all if there is no labor agreement in place with the player’s union. It’s got me feeling all weird for this year’s draft, which is a bummer since it’s normally my happy time. Boo..
