I haven’t watched the NFL in over five years and have no intention of ever watching them again

We were too busy playing games and eating at a neighbor's house.  Not that we would anyway but it was certainly more fun than watching football.

I have nothing against it. But I spent the day with my brown eyed girl. And I’m thankful for that.

I no longer watch NFL (“professional”?) football.  Not for 3-4 years now.  I just said “NO”, with the final straw of that kneeling for the National Anthem crap.  The NFL  could have gotten them under control but were too cowardly to do so.  The NFL could still do it now, but they are still a bunch of cowards.   What will be the next outrageous incident that these clowns try to pull off and that the NFL caves in to next?   (guessing)Popular player commits a sex crime, the NFL censures the player and then, huge numbers of other players “strike” league-wide in some manner as a show of “solidarity” and of “you ain’t tellin’ US what to do” belligerance?  That’s fine, let them do it.  They already play to a blank screen at my home.

 

I do believe football should be DROPPED as a high school sport, and that a mandatory 4-year, 1/2-unit or a full-unit class, named “Sports Ethics and Behavior” I, II, III, & IV, be taught at the high-school level, grades 9-12.  

 

Why should our K-through-12, government funded school systems pre-train young boys to be pro football players, while thereby ensuring the illiteracy and the corrupt morals of many of them, for the benefit of $$$billion private businesses (pro football teams) and their private, corporate Executive branch, the NFL?

Sorry I don't agree with you. I played high school football (lettered 3 years) and was good enough to EARN a scholarship to play at a major west coast university. I did well and earned a degree that enabled me to become a very successful aerospace engineer. My career spanned the Apollo, Space Shuttle and B2 programs and earned me a very comfortable retirement. Without football, probably not.

I saw all of 5 minutes of games, mostly cause I dropped the remote and it took that long to find it

 

due to technical difficulties we are eating Thanksgiving dinner today--can't wait

I watched large portions of all of them and the last one was the best one, IMHO, of course.

I don't think I'd go that far, but if I was King For a Day, I'd instill in people that football is just a GAME. Playing it CAN teach teamwork, strategy, work ethics, and that NOT everybody gets a TROPHY!

The schools already aren't teaching students what most of us Old Guys learned there, but if they were to go back to the teaching standards that they had then, a LOT of today's ignorance wouldn't be happening.

I watched twice as many as you did. Oh no, I'm sorry you watched twice as many as I did.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. :o

As far as I’m concerned football is only played on Friday night and Saturday afternoon

The National Felons League will not grace my TV screen until they *all* stand for the national anthem.

 

I'm intrigued that the professional wrestling owner (who is a huge patriot) is trying to start the Extreme Football League (XFL) again.  It failed miserably last time, but with enough folks like me out there, it has a chance of success.  He has publicly said that any player who kneels will be fired.

 While Friday night football is certainly my preferred sporting event to attend for multiple reasons I recently took in a Saints game in New Orleans at the Superdome. Incredible amount of fun. I have not been to an NFL game since 1984 but am planning on returning to New Orleans to take in another Saints game. The atmosphere is electric and dynamic. The fans incredible! And yes, I watched an NFL game on Thanksgiving. Watched the Saints beat the Falcons.

 

Who dat!

 Since we live about a 1000 miles away from the Superdome those 2 cases have to last us the rest of the season. Gotta pace ourselves...Lol.

Sadly the NFL antics have spread to college football. An Ole Miss player cost his team the game when he knelt in the end zone after a score and pretended to urinate like a dog. I hope that his parents and school are proud of him. 
disgusting. If I were his coach he would be history

 The display to which you are referring is incredibly disgusting and unsportsmanlike.  It is a new low in sports.

College football players have been pulling Crap like that for years. The schools and NCAA refuse to do anything about it. Maybe if they nipped it in the bud at the college level the end zone antics in the NFL wouldn’t happen either.

And he’ll graduate with a Batchelor’s Degree. Sad.

Still I’d like to think he’s the exception. Most of these guys will graduate and go on to decent careers not in the nfl. Only a small percentage will play in the pros. Some of them will turn out okay. Some not.

The fans are the problem! If "fans" would stop paying for the privilege of watching the antics of these overpaid, spoiled self centered jackasses, STOP buying their merchandise, and STOP going so nuts over a GAME, MAYBE things would change.

At least America doesn’t have deadly soccer riots.

Not as bad, but I've seen riots both here in Tucson over U of A games, and back in the 70s with riots at Ohio State. Vehicles burned, buildings damaged, people hurt, etc.
