11 Annoying Things About Watching NFL Football
On 12th October 2016
America loves football.
Watching it, playing it, being an armchair coach and doing fantasy football. But besides the documentaries and motion pictures showing that the sport knew that concussions and Chronic traumatic encephalopathy that plagues players because of the game, it's perfect.
But there are some things that just annoy us about the game like...
1. The ball actually is only in play for 11 minutes during the average broadcast.
According to a Wall Street Journal study of four broadcasts back in 2010, the average amount of time that the ball is in play is only about 11 minutes.
2. The game is filled with commercials especially during the Superbowl.
In fact, in the average 174-minute broadcast, 60 minutes are devoted to commercials.
3. Players are more concerned with not getting fined than they are with making plays.
A touchdown dance? Roughing? Come on, man...
4. The quarterback gets special treatment.
It seems like they award 15-yard penalties for being mean to the QB.
