Listen up, Vikings fans, we have some big programming news for you all!
The entire team here at Vikings Territory plans on hosting each of you, your siblings, your parents, your friends, your pets, and even your weird uncle with the tinted glasses on Draft Weekend 2015. So, pretty please, plan on making us your one-stop shop for all the latest Draft news during all three days of the event.
Here is what we have to offer:
AN AWESOME LIVE BLOG PAGE OF GOODNESS
We plan on having a page with an amazing amount of content. If you liked Arif Hasan’s 2015 Free Agency Live Blog, then you are going to love what this page has to offer. With a sort-by-round feature, Austin Belisle will be manning this Live Blog on each day, through each round, covering every single pick of the 2015 NFL Draft. The entire VT team will be working to feed Austin with all of the latest news, bits of interest, and rumors as it is our goal to make sure his fingers are bleeding by Saturday. Each of the features listed below will also be accessible from this page.
LIVE UPDATES FROM WINTER PARK
Our own Lindsey Young has a seat waiting with her name on it in the Winter Park media room this year. She’ll be as close to the War Room as any of us are allowed to get and providing us with all of the necessary updates as they become available. Lindsey’s Twitter account will be a must-follow during Draft Weekend, and we’ve integrated her tweets into the design of the Live Blog page for easy viewing. This ensures that VT readers will be the first Vikings fans to get the latest quotes and info offered up by the organization’s decision-makers, as well as the newest members of the team.
MUTE YOUR TV AND STREAM PFW! LIVE
This will be uncharted territory for us, as Andy Carlson plans on getting live reactions out of the Vikings Territory staff, as well as a bevy of other guests. The Purple For The Win! Podcast will be streaming live so that you can get the “pain and pleasure” delivered to you in real time with each Vikings selection. The plan includes over five hours of live coverage throughout Draft Weekend which is sure to include plenty of shenanigans.
THE BIG BOARD OF ALL BIG BOARDS
Arif Hasan is currently working on a consensus big board that will include every bit as many expert takes and as much thorough research as you would expect out of him. The Big Board will be updated in real-time, with players being eliminated as they are selected, throughout the weekend. This will allow even the most casual of draft observers to be informed about what is coming next. This board will be unveiled soon and you’ll be able to follow along with the updates right on the Live Blog page.
THE MAIN PAGE WILL BE BUSTING AT THE SEAMS
While the Live Blog page will surely be the center of attention, we will also have the thorough and complete coverage of the Vikings Draft Weekend moves right here on our main page. We’ll have any breaking news and rumors, plenty of analysis on trades and picks, and lots of polls allowing you to weigh in on each decision Rick Spielman and Mike Zimmer make.
We hope that we’ve lined up enough features to make us your preferred destination for all your Vikings information on Draft Weekend. We’ll all be working very hard to make sure you don’t regret that decision and can’t wait to hear from each of you about how much you love or hate each Vikings decision.
Oh, and let us know if you have any other ideas we should consider during the big weekend, we are all ears!
