There are like 2 spots in my opinion. Union Station/Liberty Memorial and like the lawn of the Nelson Atkins.

Nashville has landed the 2019 draft. I have to say I'm pretty disappointed in this, Nashville is not an NFL city. I'm generally kind of pissed. I find Nashville kind of overrated and boring.

Why is Nashville not an NFL city? Is this one of those sarcasm posts I don't get?

Its not an NFL city in the sense that it doesn't have a very deep fanbase or long history, i think the NFL is just going after the tourism dollars in this choice. I don't watch the NFL draft anyway so I don't really care, the whole thing seems like a produced entertainment spectacle, so maybe Nashville is a good choice in that sense.

Cleveland, KC, and Denver all deserved it over Nashville, Nashville would have been better choice in 3-4 years

I agree with you on the importance and entertainment value of this (virtually none), but the Tennessee/Nashville fanbase is pretty solid and it's a good football town. I have some friends that have gone and the downtown vibe and walk across the bridges is a pretty cool gameday experience. I think they sold out for their first 15 years or so.

Regardless, this will move around every year. I imagine we'll get our shot. It seems like they're still trying to figure out how this traveling road show will actually work. Could be a benefit to do it in a few years. Maybe when the new Loew's is done.
