  1. The draft weekend is going to be nuts. The city in its infinite wisdom has also scheduled the Nashville Marathon that weekend, and Saturday night which is the last night of the draft there is a Jimmy Buffet concert at Bridgestone Arena. Downtown will be flooded with NFL fans and Jimmy Buffet pirate heads getting drunk after both events.
  2. It's Music City though, and Bridgestone has lots of concerts to compete with the Predators. There's no justification for 2 NBA teams in the state of TN, other states can support that. Nashville is growing fast and the city infrastructure can't keep up the way it is. There's a new convention center built a few years ago and new development happening everywhere. There are plans for a new mall and movie theater right downtown as well. They want it to be a destination city for events. They host the CMA awards every year, they've had the NHL All-Star Game, the NRA had their annual convention here, now the draft and they want to host the Super Bowl. With all the colleges which are just as popular or more popular than pro sports, the Titans and Predators I think that's enough. They are trying to get MLS. There's a AA team here the Nashville Sounds and there's a local race track for auto racing. So I don't really see another major sport coming anytime soon. The city is also trying to get a casino boat on the river that would have a sports book and be a place for events on NFL Sundays. So lots going on here I don't think they are ready for another pro sport. But as it grows maybe.
  3. Yep. SEC fans are just as die hard (if not more) for college football as any segment of NFL fans are for the pros. The fans will talk X's and O's, scheme, know stats ,etc. They know their stuff. The people calling into the radio have good questions and comments and aren't just whining like the fools they let on WIP.
  4. Well, the league wants to generate more excitement in other markets. Plus you'd be suprised. Nashville hosts regional March Madness games every year. They hosted the NHL All-star game, the city has really embraced hockey, college football is huge and the Titans are here. The sports talk radio here is actually about sports and not the troll bait crap on WIP in Philly. Don't be so quick to judge, Nashville is a great city for hosting events. The NFL is responsible to make focus on the players which they do from senior bowl to combine to draft coverage.
  5. ESPN doesn't dictate the location of the draft do they? Doesn't the NFL? And what do you mean?
  6. They have tried for baseball. NBA has the team in Memphis so TN isn't really a state for 2 teams in the same sport. They're working on getting a soccer team now too. They want to host more events, and the draft is a precursor to showing they could support the tourism of the Super Bowl.
  7. The city has been growing rapidly in recent years. Nashville is now the hub for healthcare companies. I work for one and they moved here from another state because "in healthcare administration, you have to be in Nashville." Nissan moved here from Southern California about 10 years ago and brought a bunch of people and jobs. It's a very diverse area with a large Hispanic and Middle Eastern population, people are moving from all over. It's not just music anymore. There's a lot of tech companies, Bridgestone is here, 2 major sports, gourmet dining, live theater, orchestra, art, etc. The traffic is getting worse, can't keep up with the growth. Housing prices are increasing fast. I bought my house in the suburbs almost 5 years ago and it has increased in value by almost $100,000. We get the 4 seasons but none are too extreme. A 3-4 hour drive from some other cities like Atlanta or Memphis and a day's drive from a lot of other places to visit. The airport is growing too it now has an international terminal with direct flights to London. It's a great place to live, we love it. It's not a die hard pro sports town so the NFL draft will not be like Philly or NY. The southeast is all about college football but they are nuts about the Predators, they've really embraced hockey. The Preds are more popular than the Titans here.
  8. Bump. Anyone else going to be at the draft festivities in Nashville? Come see me, I'll have my son there doing all the games and activities and stuff. Never been to a draft live. If anyone has questions about Nashville let me know, and let's grab a drink while you're here too.

    Ryan Tannehill traded to Tennessee.

    The local talk radio hosts here and the fans that call in like Mariota, they keep making excuses that he needs more talent, better coaches, etc. Finally this offseason the afternoon drive time host started asking is it time to move on from Mariota. They compared to other teams that have had more success with their young QBs and pointed to the Rams, Chiefs and Eagles as examples. Wentz far outplays Mariota they said and Mariota is never going to be great. He's right of course, but I think the Titans don't make a change yet.

    Are you rooting for Andy Reid now?

    Yes, go Chiefs. Hate the Pats and Saints.

    Are Eagles worst team in division

    No. They've had a lot of injuries. They are a more talented roster they just need to put it together and get guys healthy.

    Giants in rebuild mode

    All good points. It's tough for teams because if you miss on that high pick you feel like you wasted it and could have got a potentially great player at another position and then you're kicking yourself in hindsight over that OT, DE, etc. you could have had. Foles, Cousins are 2 other QBs taken in later rounds, there are probably others. True, it's the exception. Just saying if there's not a clear top QB worth taking in the top 4 picks but there is talent to be had at QB in later rounds maybe they do that.

    Giants in rebuild mode

    Sure. Just saying strictly 1st round vs later rounds. If there's not a 1st round QB worth taking in the top 3 or 4 picks, do they take BPA and then get a QB in another round or is there a prospect worth it that high?
  14. NOTW

    Giants in rebuild mode

    Agree, but... Agree on that as well. I don't follow college, are there any projected top QB prospects? Or do they rebuild other positions and take a QB in other rounds like Dallas, Seattle and other teams have done?
  15. Yes. Ales, lagers. I don't like OPA's. Mostly I drink whisky & bourbon, sometimes gin.
