The NFL Draft CRUSHED The NBA And NHL Playoffs In The Ratings


We all know the NFL is the king of American sports. But, damn, the 2014 NFL Draft, competing against two mediocre NBA Playoff games and two pretty damn good NHL playoff games, just ABSOLUTELY SHATTERED THEM in the TV ratings.

There were real, live, exciting sports going on… and people (myself included) tuned in to watch a bunch of unproven future failures model some hats.

We can complain about concussions and 18-game schedules and HGH all we want, but until we stop watching thinks like NFL-sponsored hat-modeling competitions, the league can do whatever the hell it wants.
