Royals Review Radio - Episode 27: Draft Recap


One could argue that life, in and of itself, is a crapshoot. You have no control over when or where you are born, nor any control of the circumstances you are born into. We are all created the same way, yet our lives all end up infinitely different. Much like being born, the draft is often (incorrectly) described as a crapshoot. In this episode, Max and Shaun discuss not the crapshoot of life, but the crapshoot of drafting, even though it isn’t a crapshoot.
