Did ESPN try to drown out Roger Goodell being booed again at draft?
The NFL Draft is one of the most exciting nights of the year for football fans across the world, but they once again did not allow those feelings of happiness to mask the way they feel about Roger Goodell.
For the second straight year, Goodell was booed when he took the stage prior to Round 1 of the draft. Fans in Nashville gave the commissioner the same reception the folks in Dallas gave him a year ago.

In reality, the boos were a lot worse than that. It appears ESPN tried to drown them out on its broadcast.

Despite what it sounded like to those watching on ESPN, the boos this year may have been significantly louder than last year. With the draft being held in Las Vegas in 2020, we should all say a prayer for Goodell.
