NFL Draft 2009 Information

I Will be attending this years draft at Radio City Music Hall and i would like to shed some light about the draft for those who are interested in attending. Im a 3 year "Die Hard" draft day fan and i have went to the past 4 NFL drafts so i am a seasoned vet for any information.

Draft Ticket Tips:

  • Draft Day Tickets are 100% Free
  • A "Die Hard" is a fan who was at Day 2 of the draft and stayed the entire draft to receive a ticket for the following years draft
  • Being at the beginning of the line does not guarantee a good ticket and in fact there are no good seats for the draft depending on your position on the line because the tickets are:
  1. Handed out to "Die Hard" fans first
  2. The ticket seats are random
  3. The first person in line can possible have a bad seat (3rd Floor) so don't stress yourself to be first
  • The wait on-line is a BLAST!!! its so much fun to talk football with fellow fans or rivals in which makes time fly while waiting for wristband at midnight or ticket

If you are not a "Day 2 Die Hard" then you have to:
  1. Wait on-line at Radio City Music Hall April 24th until 12 a.m April 25th to receive a "Wristband" and after you get your wristband you go home or to hotel
  2. Get on line as earliest possible......i will be lining up with friends who do not have tickets at 4PM to wait for the midnight wristband distibution at Midnight
  3. You have to show back up to Radio City Music Hall at 2PM on the day of the draft (April 25th) to get inside starting at 2:45 the draft starts at 4PM

Re: NFL Draft 2009 Information

Maybe I will go one year, for the experience, but I like watching it at home to hear the player/team analysis.

Re: NFL Draft 2009 Information

That is pretty cool info but, I never get too excited about the draft. I did in 07 watching it online and seeing my Browns get Thomas and Quinn and made me believe in them again. 10-6 felt right then I was slammed back to earth this last season.

Here is an overview of the 4 Huge TV Screens During the Draft

Photobucket

NFL Network
Photobucket

They have 4 HUGE jumbotrons that play ESPN and NFL Network on each side but at the same time!!!

Photobucket

and as an added bonus ESPN and NFL Network are both filming the shows RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES lol......There isnt an HDTV that can get realer than that



We have things that go on every commercial thats you cant see from home such as mike golic being chanted on by fans to swallow donuts whole or people booing Mel Kipers analysis or getting autographs from legends and meeting players.......ITS A GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!

I said to myself one year i would go and since i have yet to miss one lol
