OK, so I have Monday Night Football on...
Posted by: DP

...and I've been noticing that it seems this season that the NFL games are commercial-a-thons with, oh, by the way, here's a little football thrown in. Challenge flag was just thrown-commercial. A player gets the wind knocked out of him-commercial. And so on...

How can the players be tired after a game when after every minute and a half, they rest for (it seems) five minutes!

Sadly, everything seems to be a commercial these days.

Been years since we watched the Macys parade -- maybe I just dont remeber, but what a commercial fest. And commercials between the commercials.

I am an ex-football fan, but since the 49ers are good again this year, I jumped on the bandwagon.

I found a webpage that stores streams of games and I watch them the next day or whenever. The right arrow key advances 5 seconds and I'm smashing that key throughout. For commercials, in between plays, for video reviews etc... games are over in no time and I'm not subjected to all of that idiotic babble between plays, nor any of the ads.

It's really the only way I can watch football - I just can't take all of the pauses that break up the action.

Football isn't for everyone. It is a very demanding sports for many of the positions and hitting someone or being hit during tackles is not easy on the body. Driving one's legs to block exerts quite an large amount of energy.

I was good at everything when I was a kid, but football scared me. People that played football were flat out sadists - they wanted to HURT PEOPLE. At least, that's how it looked to me. I really enjoyed pass receiving/coverage, pass rushing and I could run with the ball well, but I did NOT like people trying to kill me when I carried the ball. I stayed with baseball, basketball, volleyball and then floor hockey in college (THE BEST!)

It the 'driving on goal with a Ford F-150' that made me switch channels.


watch out linebackers!

Agreed, That's why I only watch football games that I've recorded.

I’d rather watch American football and deal with ads by running to the restroom or grabbing food than watching Fly Emirates play Chevrolet.

There is a service through The NFL that allows one to watch all the previously played games without the commercials. It is a subscription that some people prefer.

NFL Game Pass. It's what I use since I'm out of market for the 49ers, which is the only team I follow. Without it, I'd only get to watch a couple, maybe a few games a year on TV (recorded and watched later, 30 second skip works out wonderfully between plays if they're not in a hurry up offense, and then replay and skip usually works).

The other great option with Game Pass is the condensed game. They cut out all the stuff in the middle and you just watch the action, back to back. Takes about 40 minutes to watch a full game that way.

As for all the commercials, it's been that way for years now. Nothing new there.

You think the NFL has a lot of commercials, watch soccer. There won't be a single second without an ad. The players may run "the full 90" and never score a single point.

The ad breaks and all the penalties have made it unwatchable, for me. MNF is now extra unwatchable due to the presence of Booger.



My life goes smoothly and in regular intervals
