Commissioner: I am rapidly losing interest in watching the NFL, probably because I am 76 and clearly remember the pro football of old. I do follow the Eagle since I live near Philly. The NFL is ruining the game–too much money, too many rules, too many lousy calls, too many interruptions that break momentum, too much emphasis on betting. Who needs to watch when you have a fantasy team? You may think I am a small minority, but I have talked to many who feel the same way. You are lucky that enough people are still willing to shower money on the NFL.
If football is that unsafe that you need to call a penalty on so many plays, maybe you should just quit playing it. In Zen it’s the sound of one hand clapping; in the NFL, the sound of one more whistle blowing.
I no longer watch baseball, the NBA, etc. I can no longer relate to someone making $100 million a day. Gee, to play baseball or sit on a bench?
I watch a little hockey, mostly AHL or ECHL. I still like college football, but the awful referees’ calls, money and Alabama are ruining this sport as well. The most frustrating things about college football are the overwhelming stoppages and the momentum ending replays. You are all fortunate that there aren’t many alternatives. Some day curling will be more fun to watch.
A rising channel changer/TV turner offer.
P.S. This is just my opinion; I could be wrong. But so could the NFL and the NCAA.
P.P.S. Do you think i am alone in this?
