Another NFL thread smh.

The league is a mess but I'm still gonna follow my team, despite them having never won a playoff game in my lifetime.

I literally sit outside the stadium and block the road off for security purposes and I don’t care to listen or watch the game lol

I only care if they win so I can hopefully get a playoff home game and make more OT

Sure, I watch. Can't sit around all Sunday...and tune in to Monday for a bit until I get drunk and fall off the sofa... it's not like hockey...but yeah. I don't give a shit about the political shenanigans but enjoy a good game.

I love football, so yes I watch a lot of it. I don’t watch pregame activities, which is what I started doing last year to “avoid” the negative “non football stuff”.

I lost nearly all of my love for NFL in 2013 when Frontline aired 3part documentary. I sunday watch for the water cooler cultural impact and super bowl parties. It's entertainment at such a cost.

Yes, but itís getting harder and harder with all the rule changes, flags on every play, political/personal agendas, and the NFLs upper office executives sticking their heads in the sand.

I Will die bleeding green, but the general softness of league from wtf a catch is. bringing targeting to the nfl. Julio getting robbed of that catch just this thursday. soft ass roughing the passer calls. it really slows the game down and so easy to shift your attention nowadays...pickup phone, laptop, tablet, plug ethernet into central vein

tbh i would watch no matter what. if you love football nothing will change that

Not much ever since it's one long ad with a little game time thrown in. I like college fb enough to tolerate it for certain games.

Soccer is my favorite sport and we've yet to ruin that with commercials.

This. The NFL has gotten greedy. You used to be able to watch almost all the games on any given Sunday, now it's just a couple. Most of the time it's just the games I could care less about. College ball has come a long way and is exciting to watch.
