Im interested in going to the upcoming draft, but i want to know if anyone knew how to or where to get tickets and or dealing with the whole process. I know its in NYC. (for sure where is it going to be held, street name, hotels near by, whatever, etc.) thanks

I believe it's held at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City. It's quite a famous location, if you ask about it, I'm sure you'll find hotels right in the vincinity. I'm not sure, but I don't believe there are tickets, it's just an open kind of thing, but you have to get there real early to get a good seat. I may very well be wrong though.

all I know is you have to go a couple of days early and get wristbands that is the only way to get in. it used to be at madison square garden, but know it is at radio city music hall. as far as hotels nyc is a big city shouldn't be hard to find hotels and such

I went last season. Luckily I have a little connection that got me tickets before the thing started.

The only ways to get tickets to the public are:

1. You attend all of Day 2 the previous year. If you do you get next years tickets sent in the mail.

2. You wait in line that Friday night. Tickets will be given out around midnight. The further up in line you are the better your seats.

3. Scalpers. If you go early enough I think there should be scalpers there but don't hold me on it. I remember walking in last season at 11:50 (cause my train was delayed from D.C) and there were crowds of people hawking me for my ticket.

It's really a great experience and I'm going back this season to. Luckily I have a connection to get down at the orchestra seating. Wink (I met Leinart last year. He's really a good guy.)

i would be nice to be there when it happens
but i really love to just watch it on tv
it shows highlights of whoever gets drafted
and i think theres like 20 minutes between drafts
so i would get bored easily
but if i could get a ticket for cheap
i would def go

Actually, they have two giant screen tv's on either side of the stage that projects ESPN. They give you a bag with a bunch of free stuff including ear-phones to listen to the tv's. It's not boring at all. Plus tons of people leave after the first 10 picks anyway, so it's not hard to move down.
