Post No more "Pick Tipping"
While ESPN and NFL Network will compete fiercely for audience this week, they have once again come together for a gentleman's agreement on the subject of tipping draft picks. Both networks have pledged not to show images of players on the phone in the green room at Radio City Music Hall. In addition to that, both networks tell SI.com that they will tell staffers not to report pick-by-pick selections on their Twitter feeds prior to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announcing the picks on the podium. The Twitter edict will extend into the second round of the draft. Teams have 10 minutes to pick in the first round, seven minutes in the second round and five minutes for the rest of the draft.

I like it. Adds a bit more suspense.

I read something somewhere, recently, that said that Jason Lacafora (or whatever his name is) is the lone Dbag that plans to tweet the info out ahead of time. He works for CBS sports, and is therefore outside of this "gentlemen's agreement".

Oh, here it is:
Quote:
both ESPN and the NFL Network are restricting their staff from tweeting out the picks prior to them being announced by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. That's all well and good. . .but such things don't apply to people like Jason LaCanfora, who now works for CBS (and worked for the NFL Network the past few years) and has become notorious for putting the picks on Twitter before Goodell gets to the podium.

Adam Shefter has also said that he'll tweet about "headline making" items.

Simple: Don't follow twitter during the draft if you want to be surprised.

Meh … this isn’t for the fans, this is so they don’t lose viewers/$$$ to twitter.

A “Gentlemen’s Agreement” among large corporations is laughable. The phrase “no honor amongst thieves” comes to mind.

Just a heads up to anyone following 'insider' Jason LaCoforna. That tool piece of #### is still going to tweet the picks before hand.
