    I've been hearing complaints from Art Museum residents about the draft. If you're ticked off, e-mail me at narkj@phillynews.com

    It's appalling but we're the dumping grounds for whatever bread and circuses the city throws around.

    I moved to the neighborhood in 06 due to the fact that I enjoyed hearing the noises of all the marathons and parades. I still miss it. But not Made In America, that was sort of obnoxious how it was so fenced off.

    Now being here I can see why it took a week to build. They literally built a tiny arena on the art museum steps...

    Just spoke to a co-worker about this who resides near 21st and the Parkway about the Draft. I was surprised to hear, but he had no complaints whatsoever and was happy with security, crowd control, etc. He even complimented the city stating that they know what they are doing with regard to events like this one and similar events such as Made in America.

    Try 4 weeks to build, and another expected week after the event to deconstruct. For a stage that is the same size or smaller than the Pope visit, and way less crowds. Prepping the Parkway for the Pope visit took a fraction of the time compared to this corporate event.

    In the meanwhile, we've had to deal with closed off public spaces and ridiculous local traffic for weeks, all for a short event.

    I just love the warm Philly welcome Goodell keeps getting. But I have to hand it to him. He's performing the role of the NFL equivalent of a wrestling heel very well.

    You want to see a heel for this NFL draft? Drew Pearson put Goodell to absolute shame...this is some serious all-pro level trolling right here:
