I'm Attending the Draft in Vegas, is anyone else going?

Recommended Posts

About 7 of my friends who grew up in Cleveland and I are all flying down Thursday the 23rd and staying till Monday.

Is anyone else going to Las Vegas for the draft? I've been to the Browns Backers club down there before and they're awesome people.

Regardless, I think it's a one in a life thing to do, and i'll be reppin' us hardcore.

It will be a fun time- my nephew went to the draft when it was in Nashville.... 

I'm going to wait until the 2021 draft in Cleveland...  :)

I have a good friend of 40+ years retired in Vegas and I'm considering going if he gets us good seats. I'd like to see at least the first two days.

New Home addition, won't let me make it to Vegas for the draft this season..But 7 friends, with NFL draft crowds in Vegas should be a can't miss fun event Still.. Been to both Philly & Nashville draft & the closest walking hotels to the streets is the best place to be..

First come first serve in standing room crowd to fencing..Day 1 crowds line-up early. Days after will clear out some..Don't miss Day 1 madness! 

Don't forget to register for the Fan's Experience that gets you in the special teams box station,(Over the main standing crowd fence, with chairs provided) entering from behind stage..in Philly day 3, we won but keep your phones charged to get text notifications

Your group won't need a so-called ticket, but booths will be set-up at main entry gate, to get a free barcode to get in (more for attendance count).. All will get ID'd & Hand stamped to buy Beer. 2 Tall Boy limit, price range 8-10 bucks a piece

Enjoy! it's great fun..as always, here to help if needed.. (phone radio, maybe your only info to any possible trades building)..

I checked on room rates for the draft. Many are 10 times the normal rates. Doesn't seem worth it.

That's just the way it is now even bad $40 a night joints get $500 (+/-) for Super Bowl, convention, etc. events miles away.

About the best I could do was downtown for around $800 for 2 nights including the flight for one person. You can take the bus or monorail from there to the Strip. Normally I could get the  Flamingo on the strip for two nights including air in May for $244, Golden Nugget downtown for $223.

I was at an all-time low after 1-31 with the same jackass coming back another year. You can't get any lower than that IMO. That team had zero hope with Huey.

The team has little hope with Haslam and Berry...

That's just another issue should  the Browns  ever make  the Super Bowl. Even if  me and Don (with our 40 years of  seniority) were lucky enough to  score a $1,000 face value ticket, the hotel  packages are stratospherically priced, with 4 day stay minimum. Pray the game is in a city where you have friends  or relatives,  or else you're going to be  driving  100+ miles to find a reasonably priced  room.

Flamingo is the perfect location. We got the Rio for $733 for thursday friday and saturday.

My friend who took Aria for $10,000 two years ago got comped thursday friday and saturday for free. I got comped Sunday at bellagio so we got darn lucky.

That’s when I refused to renew my season tickets. If the Owner is sooooo stupid to keep a 1-31 coach then he doesn’t deserve anymore of my money

Sounds like a blast!  Have fun!  

If you run into the Las Vegas Raiders brand new mascot named Ghoolie - tell him Leg Humpers is also looking for a mascot to promote the sale of their depressants to the black hole.  Stay away from belly rubs but if you catch him mounting Gruden's leg - you might want to get that on camera.  Then for good measure, tell him Flugel predicted it and get a picture of his reaction too...

Just out of curiosity- where were your season tickets? Mine are in section 111, and just dropping them is financial stupidity.  Checking PSL source- my seats are currently worth about $6,000 each on the open market. The Browns make the playoffs- double that.

BTW,  Jimmy decided to keep up with the (Jerry) Jonses this year. Despite the mediocre showing (he rightly reasoned he has a captive audience in the 100 level) our tickets went up 20%. FWIW, the Browns went to a Ticketmaster method of seat improvement last year, (available seats in red) and there was nothing sideline in the 100 level. If we're in the bottom 5 in seat pricing, I'd hate to think what Patriots or Cowboys fans are shelling out. Browns El Primo tickets (100 level between the 20s) are now up to $300 bucks for a pair of seats. Add in the surcharge for "premium" games- opener and Steelers- it's going to be even more that that if you're looking for a single game ticket on the secondary market.  

EDIT: I looked- face value 100 level Cowboys for a pair of tickets is $750 bucks- add a zero to that for your season ticket package. Triple what I'm paying. LOL such a bargain. At Jerrah prices, I'd only be going to a game or two, and selling off the rest.....

Mine were in section 149 row 27. The fact that Jimmy did away with the PSL’s was another reason I gave them up

My PSL was worth $1500 per seat. Then they weren’t. The people next to me got their seats WITHOUT ever having to buy a PSL. I was lucky and happy to get $300 a piece for my PSL’s

Plus I live in WV now so the 3 1/2 hour drive to spend my money on a team owned by an idiot wasn’t worth it

Got ya- my nephew had the same issue when they dumped PSLs for new season ticket holders.  FWIW, only seats available I saw 100 level last year on improvement day were a couple dozen like yours in the corner end zone areas.  No one sitting in the 100 level sideline is ever going to just dump their seats. Unless they bought a license on the resale market, the seniority level of those folks is um, lifetime. Minimum 30 years, and hell's bells- you needed 30+ years of seniority way back in 1996 to even ask for seats between the 30s. Don's 17 years worth back then got us last row on the 50 upper deck- not kidding, we've improved over the last 20 years.... 

But I'm sure you realize, once you own them, you own them forever as long as you re-up your payment every spring. For us it's worth it just having first dibs on playoff tickets, should the Browns ever get there.  I totally understand not wanting to drive the 3-1\2 hours, I'm a little closer in three hours, but I'm getting to the point that drive looks less and less appealing.  I do have friends and relatives in Cleveland, so I usually come up on Saturday evening stay overnight, and drive back after the game. It's going to be interesting what the asking price of tickets will be on the resale market this year.  You're going to be money way ahead just buying a single game say once a year.

I actually think Ghoolie would be a blast to drink with. I'll for sure hit him up. Hopefully he doesn't try to steal my girlfriend.

I've said it before the real life (I've met him a bunch of times) Tom- aka Ghoolie- is nothing like the on line version. I've never been able to figure out why he had the compulsion to act like a total ass on the Board.  

Though he got all mad and blocked a bunch of us on his Facebook page when he was kicked off for good. I still have his phone # in my directory, unless he's changed it. PM me if you want it.

As long as your girlfriend doesn't look like a black dude, you should be fine.

Will there be a 2020 NFL draft with the fans?   https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/will-the-2020-nfl-draft-be-canceled-due-to-coronavirus-heres-the-latest-on-the-situation

March 12, 2020 CBS Sports

Although the continuing spread of coronavirus has already led to the cancellation of multiple sporting events around the world and the total suspension of the current NBA season, one event that's still currently scheduled to take place is the 2020 NFL Draft

The NFL has announced that the league is still planning to hold the draft in Las Vegas, despite the ongoing spread of COVID-19, which is the technical name of this strain of coronavirus. 

"Our plans remain in place," the league said in a statement. "The NFL continues to closely monitor coronavirus developments and has been in contact with the World Health Organization, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the NFL-NFLPA's medical experts at the Duke Infection Control Outreach Network (DICON). We will continue to monitor and share guidance as the situation warrants and as our experts recommend."

As of Wednesday, the disease has been labeled a global pandemic by the World Health Organization. 

Even if the spread of the disease continues, the NFL probably won't fully cancel the draft, and that's because it's the one event on the NFL calendar that can be held without people interacting in person. Although the league could end up canceling the portion of the draft open to the public, the rest of the event could easily be conducted through a video conference. As recently as 1994, the draft was conducted in a hotel conference room with no fans in attendance........ continued in the link.........

While I haven't bought a single extra roll of toilet paper - much less a mask, there is no way I would go to Sin City just to have a good time, much less be trapped in a large hall with 10,000 screaming and spitting neanderthals that haven't washed their hands since they were 10 years old.

I think it was actually going to be held on the streets with like 100,00 screaming, spitting neanderthals, and a few Cro-Magnon thrown in for good measure!!
