As far as the NFL goes, here is a list of why the NFL is overrated (I like lists if you can't already tell)
-Too many commercials. Here is a common occurrence - Touchdown, Commercial, Kickoff, Commercial, 3 and out, Commercial. NFL games can really be condensed into about 15 minutes of real action.
-The Draft is the most over-hyped waste of 48 hours. Do we really need 500 mock drafts? How much of people short human existence is wasted on something so superfluous. All you need to do is buy the following Mondays USA Today and your fine.
-Any sport that meets the following conditions would be popular
1) Played in the late fall and winter when it is too cold to go outside
2) Played for the most part only on Sundays when no one works
3) Played during the day so you don't have to stay awake late to watch
Imagine the pressure in a baseball game if they only played once week. Imagine how hard NBA players would play. Imagine what a war all 16 hockey games would be.
-Somehow, the NFL has a clean image. They have the most scandals, most jerks, and most criminals of any major sport, and somehow there is no real outrage that the league needs to clean itself up.
-Fantasy Football is a waste of time.
-There are daily studio analysis shows in July. Just dumb
-The Brett Favre story
This post puts into words everything i've ever though about the NFL. You sir, have imo spoken more truth in this post than any post before it
