Amen - Rugby does it as well - the clock just keeps rolling nonstop and they make up time at the end due to injuries or arguing and so on.
I've been watching the Rugby World Cup and it seems those matches (which should run the same amount of time as a regulation football game) clock in at 2-2.5 hrs tops.
I bought season tickets last year to the Cardinals because of the new stadium and didn't re-up again because I forgot how boring and incredibly long games are in person. Doing that every other weekend is just a killer.
