San Diego wants to host NFL Draft

The NFL is (finally) considering having the NFL draft in places OTHER than New York.

Among the cities making a hard push for the 2006 or 2007 NFL draft is San Diego. They're pitching a weeklong festival to the NFL, culminating in draft weekend.

As a West Coast-er, the idea of the draft on MY coast is delicious. Road trip!

Sorry, I'm making a mess here.

Stupid joke removed.

I don't see how we could be making a push for anything considering we don't even have a mayor right now. Oh and the leading candidate wants to tear down the current stadium and build a park, while offering the Chargers no help in funding a new stadium. The way our local government is run you'd think this was some small town in Idaho instead of the seventh largest city in the United States.

It's the San Diego International Sports Council, and their President (Joe Moeller) that's doing the lobbying.

At least San Diego HAS a team!

They are trying their hardest to rectify that.
