Why cut the draft? How does this situation affect the number of players drafted at all?
AP said they were thinking of canceling draft to conserve cash due to decreased revenue, so I guess this is a compromise but with the same reasoning.

and scares me about cancellation talks :cry:, I know it has to be discussed, but just the thought alone hurts.
We gotta believe that's the last possible outcome. Nobody would want that. It would take a lot to get to that.

So cutting the draft in half would be done to save owners $$$? I’m a little confused on that part.

That's what it sounds like. Drafting less people means putting less money into signing the picks.
