Draft spoilers

The year Louis Leblanc was selected by the Habs, RDS had a close-up of Timmins' sheet.

This year, someone said that Luc Gélinas spoiled the pick on Twitter.

I was wondering how it was possible. Well, I learned something on RDS.CA

Quote:
19h34 : Comme c’est la norme, RDS, en tant que diffuseur officiel, apprend l’identité du choix des Panthers avant son dévoilement.

C’est confirmé, les Panthers repêcheront Huberdeau, mais seulement au retour d’une pause commerciale qui prolonge le suspense. Debout à quelques mètres de lui, je me retiens d’annoncer la nouvelle pour garder la surprise.
It says that because RDS and TSN are official broadcaster of the draft, they know the picks before the actual selection. Do you guys know if it's because the selection is made by computer before going to the podium?

Anyways, if you like watching the draft, when the Habs pick, turn the channel on TSN and don't check any Twitts...it will be safer if you want to live the moment...
