Yeah, I didn't like it being on a weeknight either. They changed it for the $$$$...airing it in primetime. Oh, the NFL says they changed it to benefit fans, claiming it was more convenient for fans to watch TV on weeknight...but I don't buy it. For those whom it's important to watch the Draft on TV, they'll make the time to watch, regardless of it being on a Saturday or weeknight.

This was the first Draft Day party I attended without my daughter, her hubby and my grandson & step grandson...I missed them. The boys thoroughly enjoyed attending too, their Chiefs loyalty & pride grows deeper with attending such events, and they are the future generation of Chiefs fans. Now they can't attend Draft Day as a Chiefs and family tradition because it's on a school night.
I believe attending such events with kids is important in establishing Chiefs loyalty and tradition for when they become adults. As a bonus they learn lessons of loyalty and tradition, importance of family unity/bond/sharing...of which they can apply to many aspects of life in adulthood.
:drunkhb: I'll be there next year
some pictures are really nice great job!
I am a spammer that has met the Hammer.
Thank you! Looks like the 'spammer who met the hammer' who posted above bumped this thread, haha. Guess I should tell the spammer thanks also, as if not for 'it', I would've missed your post, not been able to reply politely with thanks, haha. Better late than never!
