    Its just entertainment, no different than court jesters of the olden days. Maybe one should not take this stuff so seriously.

    NFL=National Felon League. I could care less about overpaid thugs who disrespect this country period.

    I watched an episode of Hard Knocks. I'm trying to figure out which of the players hairstyles I'd like to adopt. It's now high & tight & balding. I'm looking for one of their styles that will make me 12" taller.

    And, of course, within the cult of the NFL are smaller sub-cults...

    I found myself watching less and less NFL starting about 8 years ago. Just found I didn’t care or find the game entertaining.

    The changes on purpose by the league or by evolution is starting to do the same for me for MLB. I say that as someone who has been to every mlb stadium, traveled cross country for a three game series, but I see myself dropping it to or spending less time and money on it.

    I don't watch any longer. But I believe we will all rethink this position now that the NFL hired Jay-Zee to right the ship. And the halftime music he chooses for the next Super Bowl will likely have us all on the edge of our seats awaiting that day.

    Was a rabid lifelong fan. Could really care less about it now. Once the kneeling started , just couldn’t watch it anymore. Even quit playing fantasy football last couple of years. Honestly, it is hard cause I have a lot of friends, coworkers and family that are all still fans and watch. The NFL & players don’t give two s***s about blue collar guys like me anyways. No loss , I go shooting on Sunday now! Sunday Gunday!!

    Ive never been a fan of football. My school didnt have football. BUT ive tuned in to see the half time acts. Tom Petty, I think the Stones one year etc. However the chit that has been on the past decade is disgusting no talent garbage.

    It all went to feces when Bruce Springsteen was half time entertainment.
