I used to be the same. Now I watch the Pats game. Other than that I normally nap in front of the TV during other games or go do something.


Wierd....... with all the football I watched last year, I didn't watch more than 10 minutes combined of Pats games. ;)

as far as sunday morning pregame shows, they pretty much all suck. NFLN is a yell fest, which is a real bummer. all of them throw in those stupid skits that have nothing to do with anything. there is very little analysis. last season, i turned on the ESPN fantasy pregame show (i think it was ESPN) that would end about 5-10 minutes before noon, then turn to RZC and listen to the football music until they came on the air.

Oh yeah, those pre-game and post-game shows are brutal with people talking over each other, yelling and just unintelligible nonsense. The majority of the things they do with Irvin and Deion Sanders are just awful.

They DO pretty much all suck. So why are all these networks paying these guys good money to yap about stuff football fans don't care about? We want to watch the goddanm game, not look and listen to you.

The NFL and everything about it is just flush with money. So the various networks are each paying 4 to 6 guys at least a million a year to blather about crap fans don't care about?

That's a pretty good gig if you're one of those blatherers.

Nothing wrong with that at all.


Righto. Whatever works for folks is cool with me. Now if it's that preseason fauxball I'll tease someone a little but if someone enjoys football as entertainment then I get it. I do think we've seen the interest level crest in the last few years and that the NFL ratings are going to come down a little. Maybe when it hits a trigger that effects ad rates the NFL might work to improve the product.

I'm just wondering why Amazon thinks football fans would rather watch a game on a small device rather than a TV screen.

More and more people are streaming. Kids these days.



I only pay for one HD cable box, but I have Amazon streaming on three TVs in my house. Not just a handheld device, you can stream Amazon Video on anything, whether game console, DVD player, smart TV or fire TV stick (if you don't have a smart TV).

Amazon Video is awesome. While I probably won't tune in to too many games this year, the fact that it will be conveniently available on Amazon makes me more likely to check it out.

Same here, although that was partially due to football only being available on the one TV with cable, which wasn't in the kids play room. My 2 year old would sit still for maybe a quarter, so I spent most of the time watching him and not football. If I could put football on in the background while he was playing, I'd watch a lot more (although the NFL in general has faded, IMO).

That used to be the same for me, but then I did the math and realized I'm paying 1500 a year for just football, which is a bit absurd IMO.


I pay $1200 a year for local channels and internet. Comcast has a monopoly, so my options are:
1- Pay <$50 for super slow internet (doesn't work for when I work from home)
2- Pay $80 for just internet
3- Pay $100 for faster internet and local channels

I've basically accepted that I'm being screwed. Only bonus is "free" HBO go. I really enjoyed when I lived near Verizon FIOS, that was better internet at a lower price.

That's the one thing I have almost cut out completely. The pre-game and post-game shows are just not worth my time anymore. If I have injury concerns for a line-up, I just check Rotoworld or the likes.

Yeah we kind of are if we want to go through all the proper channels to see every game. It's that or go to a bar.
