The entire NFL is a shit show, and I stopped patronizing them years ago. The billionaire owners expect the public to pay for their multi-billion dollar stadiums, and then charge $100+ a ticket, $10 hotdogs, and $10 beers for the "privilege" of watching a bunch of overpaid, entitled, thugs. Some that beat their wives or girlfriends, some that commit felonies, and most of them do idiotic things in public. If they were ever role models, that day passed decades ago.

Fuck the NFL

sorry, there is too much money involved for the outcomes to be left to chance.

The thing is, I know this. But I'll enjoy the charade anyway much like wrestling fans do.

Fuck it. I think it's fun.

I'm only touching idiotic things in public. I know I do dumb things at times and if I was being stalked by people with cameras putting it up online I would look dumb as well, that said I would likely have more entertaining things that I did if I was being stalked by these fucks 1/2 from being distracted 1/2 from wanting to mess with them (hmm need some bread, think I'll toss a pair of boxers on my head and see if it makes the news).

They lost my subscription two years ago, with the rampant thuggery of players and the perpetual cheating (Tom Brady, the Saints, the Seahawks defense, etc.). The league needs to get their players under control. Plus, the billion dollar stadium or 'no super bowl' threats. Fuck that. All my sports money is going to the NHL now.

The thing that ruined it for me was tax payers building giant fuck off stadiums for teams who suck then it isnt like the teams give anything back.

The poster team of this being the Vikings, what a scam.

To take it a level further, the owner was recently penalized $85 million in a fraud case.

Exactly. Take St. Louis for example. They're still paying for the Rams even though they moved to LA. (See: With NFL Rams gone, St. Louis still stuck with stadium debt, Reuters The hubris of the league acting like paupers to get us to subsidize them is maddening.

To really have an effect you need to let them know why you're halting your patronage.

I'm saying to take your money elsewhere but let them know why you did. No reason to leave them guessing.

You can probably still enjoy the product without actually giving the NFL any money. Almost all games are on network TV and you can go to pretty much any bar to watch an out of market game since so many already have the ticket.

Just don't buy any merchandise or go to any games and flip the channel when a commercial comes on. I refuse to give that bastard Dan Snyder any more of my money, although I do give him props for not caving on the name.

you can live stream just about every game including the super bowl.

Just go to the networks (abc, nbc, fox, etc) website and you'll be able to stream at no cost. Unless things changed they also don't show any commercials on those streams, the screen just goes blank.

I just let the game queue up on the DVR for about half and hour before I start watching, then I can skip through all the commercials.

I don't buy that logic. I personally cannot stand commercials and I change the channel when one comes on regardless (so it doesn't feel like more work to me).

It also doesn't matter if an average person watches the game or not because it isn't monitored unless you have a Nielsen box. If you avoid the commercials, you at least avoid the NFL's advertiser overlords who help play into the nonsense that the NFL has become.

I don't watch sports at all, and you're free to do what you want.... And so are they. That's the tricky thing with that pesky freedom of speech. You only want your side to use it. Let them protest however they want, and the more people that look into it will see it's bullshit.

I'm not saying that they can't. I'm just saying that I am not going to pay for that foolishness.

For sure. But your posts were about getting them under control. Which would literally be advocating for censoring them. I agree, don't give them shit. But you are either for free speech for all, or no one.

Your nationalisn is so weird. Who gives a shit about some crappy old song meant to brainwash you into illogical feelings of a personal relationship with a country? Some lines on a map governed by corrupt dicks!

Its... its kind of gay dude.

If you get that triggered over something someone does that isn't politically palatable, I guess that's your right.
