For those that want to watch a bunch of scouts watch a bunch of guys run around in shorts for three days, the National Football League is going to allow 250 fans to be in Lucas Oil Stadium for a portion of the 2012 Scouting Combine next week.
Fans who will be in the area can register at 1iota.com for a chance to gain entry to watch the quarterbacks and receivers workout on Sunday, February 26th.
“They’ve been asking us to put fans in the stands for the last four years,” said Jeff Foster, director of the National Football Scouting. “Obviously this is important to the NFL, so we’re excited to partner with them on the opportunity.”
According to the 1iota.com casting call, fans “will have the exclusive opportunity to see tomorrow’s stars compete for a chance at draft day glory. The NFL Combine can be one of the most influential experiences in a player’s career and the NFL wants you to be a part of it.” Those chosen will get to view the 40-yard dash for quarterbacks and wide receivers, as well as position drills.
Personally, this is about as boring to me as paint drying. I understand it’s the process in how guys are measured, but the fact they put it on NFL Network for three days is bad enough. Now fans wanna go in and watch this live? No thanks.
