I nearly forgot what it was like...

Postby srthree » Sun Jan 04, 2004 11:47 am

to watch an NFL football game without having any player biases or rooting interest. The Titans/Ravens game was awesome and I did not even care how my players were doing or who my opponent or division rival had in the game. Almost makes me want to give up fantasy football. No wait, I forgot I root for the Bears so I need something else to peak my interest. It was a good feeling anyway. IMO, NFL Playoffs are the best of all spectator sports.

i know exactly what u mean. i like watching the playoffs esecially because it gives me a chance to watch good football. something i miss when watching the redskins... it makes me incredibly jealous of other fans who get to watch that kind of stuff every week. :-/

I was thinking that EXACT thing last night. I just laid there on my bed and watched the Ravens/Titans game in it's entirety. No jumping up to my computer to check stats for the other games or logging in to see how my teams were doing. Just sat back and enjoyed what was a really good game.

This is true.

10-15 years ago, for me, it was NCAA "March Madness".
But then college basketball went NBA-junior and the Mega-Schools truly and completely took over.

Then MLB did away with the pennant race (the #1 saving grace about the entire sport) and installed playoffs.

NFL Playoffs. No doubt about it.

i still have to go with march madness. i don't know what you're saying about the big schools taking over, even though they do nd up winning in the end there's always upsets. look at marquette over kentucky last year, who called that? playoffs of any sort are the best part of any sport. hint to NCAA football...

FF is the reason I like the post-season so much. The fact that I spend the whole year watching every player in every game and checking their stats over and over makes the end of that and the play-offs better. I think the fact that the postseason is a change away from that makes the games more fun to watch.

A point well taken, AF. Following players all season has given me a hightened awareness of not having to do it now. But unlike the blasphemous heathens; srthree, terpfan, and kingghidra, I get more enjoyment at watching the games and seeing some of the players I don't get to see in action. While the NFL playoffs have always been the king to me, with March madness second, the playoffs are even better with my conversion to ff.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

I still do NFL.com Fantasy and the games here at the CAFE. I don't follow them as much as I do with regular season FF. The best playoffs Football March Madness (reason why 1 loss=go home) In the other sports it takes multiple wins to advance. I still follow Other sports. IN addition to a Packer Fan I am a Yankees, Knicks and Rangers Fan.
