draft lottery minus the lottery


Did anyone else feel like last night's Draft Lottery on Versus was a colossal failure?  What's the point of having a drawing for the #1 overall pick if you're not going to show the ACTUAL DRAWING?  They could have done all the pre-pick hype of showing each teams' balls (huh huh) fall into the hopper and actually show the winning ball pulled. They could even have had Yolanda Vega call the winner.

Watching a guy with placards announce "At #5 the Islanders, at #4 the Devils (the winner), and still at #1is Edmonton" seemed like it had no flow to it. I guess they were trying to have some of the same drama of Ryan Seacrest on American Idol:  "Joe Schmoe, the audience has voted, and you are ............(30 second pause for effect)................. NOT eliminated".

I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but showing the actual drawing of the winner is a lot better than giving us the results secondhand, and it will keep people from questioning the results.
