That's a good point, chop.
There have been rumors about this for months. The reasoning given was to span more of the year with NFL interest, now Goodell comes out with this BS about an Easter show. Total BS, Easter 2014 is Sunday, April 20th. The draft would have fallen on April 24th - April 26th next year following the traditional schedule.
I've been to the draft twice. There's no reason they couldn't get that set up and ready to go in three days.
