View Full Version : Draft Access -- How Much Would You Pay?

I just asked this at a Pats forum, and it makes sense to do it here too. I'll just switch the names around:

A random thought I just had -- how much would you pay to have full and complete access to the Chiefs war room during the draft? See the draft board, sit in there with Carl and the rest?

Actually, sweeten the pot a little -- you can sit in on every group meeting relating to the draft by Chiefs brass for a week leading up to the draft. Hear discussions about final tweaks to the draft board, hear about potential trades to move up or down, etc.

One caveat -- NO QUESTIONS ALLOWED. You're a fly on the wall. Open your mouth for anything other than breathing, sneezing or coughing, and your butt is out the door. They're busy and don't have time for amateur-hour analysis. Of course, you can hear the answers to any questions Lamar asks etc.

If I can't say anything, I don't want to be there. I'd be kicked out in half a second.

You guys are funny.

This brings something to mind, although the Chiefs are obviously much better -- have you guys seen the Jets Draft Highlight Video? Funny stuff...

nothing ...

because if i did it i would shortly be in jail for man slaughter.

after the 1st round screwed up pick i would suddenly explode and start fling chalk and staplers around with extreme force.

the stapler would "randomly" strike people until finally is struck Carl peterson in his temple leaving him dead on the floor.






since i don't want to pay to go to jail for the rest of my life ......... i'll pass.

It's much easier for you to sit in on the Pats draft room and stay quiet.

Firstly, your FO/Coaching staff have proven they know what the hell they are doing.

Secondly, having won 3 of the last 5 SBs, you don't have 30+ years (or however long you've been a Chiefs fan) of pent up frustrations to vent.

It would be interesting as fly-on-wall. I would not pay.

How much would I pay? Not much, but that's relative to my income.

I think you could put a high value on an experience like that. Equivalent to a trip to the Superbowl or something

Again...originally posted on a Pats board. I'm pretty confident that, unlike what most of us felt under the Sullivans, or Bobby Grier, that most Pats fans would admit we're amateurs when compared to the guys running the show these days.

Agreed. Can't argue with you.

As I've said before, I'm okay with anyone this group drafts. If they drafted the Pope I'd say "it sure will be interesting to see how THAT strategy unfolds..."

Honestly. They have carte blanche in my book.

I'd pay a $100 or so, just for the stories I could tell on CP.

Let's see I am going to college for sports management and I want a job like CP's, so lets say about 25k. :)

Nah, I was good with that. His hands ain't all that, but his downfield blocking is something to behold...

I would give up my half of a website I had spent 5 years of my life promoting and managing.
