View Full Version : Why Teams Take the Full Allotted Time
April-23rd-2005, 12:15 PM
Seen enough grumbles already today from people who don't understand why a team would take the full 15 minutes to then make a pick everyone expected them too anyway.
Because during those 15 minutes, they know there are 31 other teams looking at their boards, and considering whether it's in their interests to maybe make that last-minute desperation call---and perhaps make an offer too good to refuse---that could make them pull the trade-down trigger.
And that's all I have to say about that.

Yes... I don't think there is a player out there that would keep a team from trading down to an area of value and getting a similar player or filling a seperate need entirely WHILE accumulating additional 1st day picks.
They simply answer every phone call and listen to every offer before determining what it's their best interest.

How dare do they do all that. Have they no idea how long the Skins fans have been waiting? Have they no clue? I mean c'mon. Clearly they should no these fans can wait no longer. They are obligated to hurry. ;)

yeah, and the NFL and ESPN get to show WAY more commercials. You know that has to play into it.

I thought it was because they were trying to annoy me... and take up my entire afternoon. The jerks.

1) this thread was NOT intended for the 92.3% of you who already knew this, and
2) if the Skins don't take the full 15 minutes, I'll be surprised ... and a little disappointed. All the flexibility we attained by trading for the 25 pick becomes more and more flexible with each passing minute as the clock ticks down. :)
