Official NFL Draft Twitter Account Posts Desire For Lottery 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu May 16, 2019 2:20 pm

In the wake of the craziness that was the NBA Draft lottery on Tuesday night, there has been talk about reform involving other leagues.

The NFL\'s official draft account expressed their desire for change.

\"Hey, NFL, we want a draft lottery, too,\" the league\'s draft account tweeted on Wednesday afternoon.

It\'s unlikely the NFL will ever implement a lottery unless they are able to prevent tanking.

bull!

If the NFL adopts the draft lottery, I'm done watching. The draft lottery is one of the biggest problems with the NBA. Pretending like a good team getting the #1 overall pick is somehow a success is laughable. That is a big part of the problem. There is no parity, and it makes the league top heavy. Outside of 2 or 3 teams, the NBA sucks. The NBA is a joke, please keep that away from the NFL. The worst team should get the best pick, end of story. The lottery doesn't prevent tanking in the slightest, it just turns the league into a **** joke, as if they needed more with every single close game turning into a free throw skills competition instead of actual basketball. NBA is a complete joke.

I love a sentence that makes 0 sense.

EXACTLY
Nola had how many years with AD? Couldnt make it happen... Now they get to ruin another star. The lakers moving up is RIDICULOUS.

All the lottery does is give half of a league a reason to tank rather than 2 to 3 teams. NBA got it backwards. Eliminate the lottery and threaten relegation to the G-League or relocation for repeat offenders. The 76ers arent a "good organization" They tanked half of decade to never win a championship.

NBA is decided by refs, more so than any other sport. It is unwatchable most years for anyone who doesn't live in Texas, California, and soon to be New York again.

Actually you’re just (Please Use More Appropriate Word) and probably dropped out too soon. In other words he said the nfl is unlikely to start a draft lottery without any way to prevent tanking dumb ass.
