FAN Take is a series that highlights trending events, issues, and decisions in the world of sports and analyzes how they may or may not factor into the Fan Controlled Football League. We would love to hear your feedback, so let us know what you think about each FAN Take!
It’s NFL Draft Eve, normally one of our favorite times of the year, but things are clearly different this time around. There won’t be giant parties for the incoming rookies to celebrate, there won’t be crowds outside of every team’s stadium watching to see who they’re adding to their respective rosters, and there won’t be war rooms for every team to huddle up in and make their selections. But that’s okay, because at the end of the day, we’re going to see a bunch of talented players have their dreams come true. But no dreams will come true for Roger Goodell. His career-long dream of walking on stage without a large crowd booing him will have to wait another year at the very least, thanks to Bud Light.
The NFL Draft will be without an important tradition. And we just can't let that stand. Record your boos then post & tag @budlight and #BooTheCommish. We’ll deliver the boos to the Draft, and for each #BootheCommish thru April 25, we’ll donate $1 to NFL Draft-a-Thon up to $500K. pic.twitter.com/fnvcYDpZPW— Bud Light Seltzer (@budlight) April 20, 2020
Either way, we’re excited to see how teams use their picks to shape their 2020-21 season rosters, especially teams like the Cincinnati Bengals and Washington Redskins, who practically need to rebuild their teams entirely to get back on track. We think this is something that our fans can resonate with, because they will be doing the same thing in our inaugural year – building their team from the ground up. We asked the fans to sound off on what position they would be gunning for with their first pick in the FCFL Draft, and it’s becoming pretty clear that our fans want to nail down the perfect quarterback before filling out the rest of the roster. But what about the next few picks? Are they going to move straight into snatching up all the best receivers? Or do they want to cycle through receivers, o-line and d-line? Maybe they want to take cues on what positions should come next from their respective offensive and defensive coordinators? Or even their Team Owners | Fan Captains? Let us know how you’d use your picks in the first-ever FCFL draft!
