        I would say the first weekend of the March Madness tournament is better, The day of your fantasy football draft is better, Superbowl is way better

          SuperBowl doesn't even come close to the Draft. It is only about 2 teams. The Draft is about 32 teams and encapsules the future of this league.

          The Super Bowl is just for that one day. The Draft is for the next 10 years.

            I dunno, Fantasy Draft and real Draft compete. Not sure which one I like better. Probably fantasy because I have money riding on it.

              Was that a serious question?

                The Superbowl is the pinnacle of the NFL. It's what everyone works so hard to get to. It's not about two teams it's about the two BEST teams. The draft features the best talent going to crap teams. Not to make it seem like I don't like the draft though because I love it but SB>Draft

                  Who was it that said they skipped a major school assignment to watch the entire NFL draft in their signature? I could see Matt's saying "I missed my birthday to watch the NFL Draft."

                    Fantasy draft is #1 for me ($$$).

                    But I love the NFL draft. Two solid days of mass beer consumption and talking about all the potential and which Vet just got bumped.

                        I think that was Candyman.

                        Superbowl 1a) and Draft 1b) in my book. You can't lose with either.

                          The draft entails fans cheering on their favorite team for 32 teams. It bridges the gap from college to NFL. It is a much more dynamic event than the Super Bowl with positional needs, players rising/falling, reaches, trades, etc....much more exciting. I love it because of the dreams made and the tears (Vernon Davis) and players falling in the first round waiting to be taken (Leinart, Quinn, Rodgers, Kenyatta Walker, etc.). The tape you see of players when they see they were picked on tv is just amazing. It is their goal to get drafted and it happens. Dreams crushed, dreams made....amazing dynamic imo.

                          The Super Bowl is really like any other football game just on the highest level. The Draft is something totally else entirely.

                            Wow, that's a joke to say the Super Bowl is like any other game. People like John Elway worked their whole life to win that game. We get to watch people for 10+ years trying to reach it and when they finally do it's great.

                            Look at Eddie George after they lost the Super Bowl and tell me dreams weren't crushed. That guy sat on the bench with his head down until the whole stadium was cleared.

                              I lvoe the Draft 1000x more than the Super Bowl. Than again, I am more of a college football guy so, obviously, I love the Draft.
