And I think fat cheerleaders are definitely out.


How about teams with NO cheerleaders at all, like the Bears? Bad enough we have to watch the team lose, there's not even any cheerleaders to look at. Bring back the Honey Bears I say.

This question is easy. Commercials. There are just far too many of them. In a 3 hour game, you're watching about an hour and a half of commercials. That is absolutely ridiculous. It seems to get worse every year too. It's like there's a commercial break after every single play. It's getting to the point where it's almost unwatchable. I think I may start taping the games and watching them later so i can skip commercials. would save me like an hour of my day.

#1 - Wayyy too many commercials, especially on Monday night when there isnt another game to switch to.

#1a- Announcers who will spend 3 hours of a football game literally orally fellating Peyton Manning, Brett Farve, or Tom Brady. Ok, we get it, these guys are good at football. I dont need to know that they would like to make a pitcher of lemonade out of their used socks and drink it out of their protective cup. Worst at this.... clearly Joe Theisman and Paul Maguire - absolutely atrocious.

#2 - Crappy home team television contracts forcing me to watch the Redskins vs Lions instead of the Chargers vs Oakland for example.

I agree with everyone who says commercials. :-°

My gawd, before the kickoff... commercials, after the kickoff ... commercials, someone is limping slowly off the field... commercials, timeout ... commercials, after the punt... commercials, play being reviewed, we'll be back right after these ... commercials. Ugh! Even between plays sometimes they remind you that Numb3rs or The Guardian or some other stupid show nobody watches is on next. Who cares, get back to the game dammit... :-t

OK

Can't believe it has gotten this long without a discussion:

THE FACT THAT DIREC TV HAS A WORKING MONOPOLY ON GAMES

why in the world can I not buy games from my cable provider?

How much money are they losing? I would pay 20 bucks a week for most games -- if necessary. Or definitely 125-150 bucks a season.

Instead, when I lived in NY, had to juggle the eagles, jets, giants schedule, now in DC have to compare everything against the skins.

Why the hell can't I just buy the occasional game that isn't on tv? I've been luck this far, but the next three or four games necessitate a trip to the bar. I'd rather just spend 20 bucks and watch it. or whatever they charged really. if a fight only costs 50 bucks, why can't a game cost 15-20?
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

Pay per veiw football is just unamerican. Here in Nebraska they always end up with a couple cornhusker games a year on pay per view at $40 a pop. They will do it cause people will pay it.

Side note- If you want the Sunday Ticket you don't have to subscribe to the other directv stuff. That is product bundling and is illeagal. Of course they try to do it anyway, you just have to call them on it.
