02:14 PM ET 04.24 | ESPN and the NFL Network reached an agreement to not tweet out picks before they happen during the 2013 NFL Draft. That won't stop Jason La Canfora of CBS from doing what he feels is his duty, however. He told Ed Sherman that if he has a scoop, he won't hesitate to let the world know. "We're not a broadcast partner for the draft," La Canfora said. "I will be trying to get the information out as quickly and accurately as possible. What event is made more for Twitter than the NFL draft? If the teams have the information; if the guys in the production truck have the information; if the commissioner has the information; why wouldn't passionate football fans want it as well?" In fact, there are several reasons why fans wouldn't want that information beforehand. Some may prefer the surpriseof hearing draft selections for the first time from the mouth of commissioner Roger Goodell as opposed to someone's Twitter feed. A lot of fans want to experience the draft as much as they want to know who will be playing where next season. The agreement between ESPN and the NFL Network comes after both networks were inundated with complaints last year.

Fine.... Just keep CBS and their dough head, Ms. La Canfora in the dark and feed them horse muffins... If this idiot can not see the consequence in this, he needs to take up pumping gas at a Flying J...
