    Most of the people I know who are "boycotting" the NFL were never watching the NFL.

    In that respect, I guess I'm "boycotting" Pat Robertson's ministry and pickles.

    Pickles!!!!!!????!!!! How do you make a good potato salad without pickles?

    A 49er did the knee thing after he made a touchdown yesterday but it was because his baby who was born prematurely had died yesterday morning.

    And good riddance, I might add. The NFL could seriously benefit from scaling back into an NHL-type entity. Can you believe they still actually allow guys to fight-- that's actually FIGHT and PUNCH EACH OTHER --and they have a proscribed penalty for this, because it happens so regularly.

    Now fighting has never really been a direct part of the NFL, but back in the day, before the ownership went full-on billionaire "it's all about the dollars" corporate mentality and sold all of the cache that the game earned in the 1970's and 1980's to cash in in the 90's and 2000's, the game was better. It was better without instant replay, without enormous pre-game and half-time shows at the SuperBowl, without corporate-members-only pricing on huge swaths of the seating. It was just a better game. Teams played, shit happened, it was awesome, and then we went on with our lives.

    I honestly think that in the 1970's and 80's, ownership increased revenue by making football more awesome. In the 90's, they basically started cashing in on that, pulling money out of the machine, by making the game less awesome. Every stadium is named after a corporation, instant replay is a sick joke, the corporate presence is ubiquitous, the efforts to attract non-fan dollars is relentless...Thursday night football! Abomination. Football in fucking London??!!! Wait...WHAT??!!!

    They send the fucking LOS ANGELES Rams to LONDON to play a football game???!!! Dude...it's EIGHT TIME ZONES AWAY!!!

    You have

    GOT

    to be fucking kidding me.

    If I wasn't such diehard fan of the game... As it is, I literally cannot watch it in real time anymore. I have to DVR it and watch it that way. And my interest has definitely dwindled to watching my boys, and really then just the playoff games. Occasionally I catch a random game that's really good, but mostly I'd rather watch something else, and I do.

    Eww, you're one of those, eh? I'll bet there's vinegar in your macaroni salad, too.
