Attendance at the NFL combine




         One thing I noticed about the NFL combine this week that nobody ever seems to talk about is my topic. And that’s not the players, or coaches, or stats, it’s the attendance. The only people allowed to be inside during the combine are coaches, scouts, and four analysts for the NFL Network. I know its better if the stadium is silent. But I saw you sell even just $10 $5 tickets for the upper level for fans to spectate some of their favorite players. Where do you put the money? Give it to charity! Fans will pay to see this event. If they wouldn’t why are people watching it on TV and why is it so important to scouts?

          The conflict over the sound should be if you yell or do anything distracting you should be kicked out. When people give ticket takers there tickets just make sure there are no signs, whistles, lasers, or anything that’s distracting. Have security to check for weapons and show that it’s a big deal for these kids.

          But this could turn out to be a great charity event or family time. They should do the same thing here as they do with the senior bowl by hosting events, and get some fan interaction and get the fans excited. You could hold contests as well. 

          I know that this rule has always been in place but i think it should be changed.
