    I hate the media part of it with a passion, but I am just less interested in the games overall. I can tune out/ignore the media. Part of it might just be where I'm at in life. Married, 3 kids, crazy job... I have a ton of other shit going on, which doesn't allow me to follow it consistently. But the games in general are just less exciting to me (and I hate that I feel that way). Certain rules push me away. Hate, hate, hate pass interference. I get the egregious stuff, but ticky tack calls need to go. The field is 53x120. If you can't get separation from the defense, they should be allowed to make contact. That's just 1 of 50 examples I could give. Part of it could also be that for about 10 years my life revolved around football and I'm somewhat burnt out. I've gotten a little more into college football over the past 5 years and do enjoy following it now. The other night I chose to watch Game 5 of the World Series instead of the Steelers - Lions game (and glad I did). If it happens to go 7 games, I will do it again this Thursday (no idea what the NFL game even is). And I have NEVER chosen MLB over NFL. My NHL to NFL games viewed this year is probably 10:1, and that includes Patriots games. I dunno. Maybe my brain only has capacity to focus on a certain amount of things at once and those "things" are shifting.

    I am concerned about my declining interest in the NFL as a whole.

    I did not watch one second of the steelers lions game due to the World Series. Never even flipped te channel. and who needs NFL media when I just get all my in depth NFL analysis here from magic mike gordan. college football sucks. In all my life I could never get into anything more than my states teams and that is straight stupid where I live.

    It's not just media coverage, which is hard for me to tune out entirely, because I like to keep up with deeper issues in the teams that I follow, but it's the way the NFL presents its own product as well, which is partly modeled after being its own media outlet, and by proxy, using media programming trends to showcase its own league. All of it is a bummer to me. As for college, I imagine that there is a hell scenario for me when I die where Satan forces me to watch college sports for eternity.

    Would you be more interested in the NFL if you tuned out all of the media coverage of it? At this point, I read almost no actual NFL articles, and I haven't watched ESPN Sportcenter in a year. I keep up with the league using Reddit (where it's a lot of hardcore fans) and twitter (I only follow beat writers and credible journalists). It's made me enjoy the league a lot more. Or you could just migrate over to the cesspool known as college football, where moderate fans aren't a problem and games are only played on Saturday, aside from the weird random game of Thursday.

    Yeah, dude. As soon as Brady & BB are done, I'm moving on. My participation in all things NFL, even going so far as Tecmo Super Bowl, has been lessening each year since 2010. I don't enjoy how the media covers the sport now (like it's TMZ); I don't enjoy how the NFL is trying to get international traction, which I consider to be a distraction; I don't like how the games are spread out to three days a week now; I don't like how the salaries earned have sky-rocketed to the point where teams are changing their game strategies based on protecting their 'investments;' I don't like how fantasy football has essentially taken over the sport; and lastly, but possibly most important, I don't like how moderate fans have taken ownership of the sport through TV ratings/advertisement dollars. I mean, basically there has been very little change in the past 10 years that I have liked.

    NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    Right?! Has a team ever just had 1 QB on the roster? Is Hoyer coming back as part of the deal? Is Brady actually invincible? (maybe) Wondering if the Pats are going to immediately swing that pick for some players/help this year. So many questions, so little patience. Time to go on twitter for the next 3 hours...

    NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    Yeah. My first reaction was one of "WHAAAA..." ...But then I started to think about it. Dude wasn't gonna get paid by the Patriots, and some team was gonna make him the offer. Was he great insurance for Brady this year? Definitely. But this is where they're getting the most value. I'm into it. Is it risky as f*ck? Yuuuuup. But if you're investing in a Brady-lead team at the end-ish of his career, then it's still a long-term-ish vision. I'm down. But whoooooooooah nellie, it's all about Brady.

    This looks like a good place to rant. "I still haven't found what I'm looking for" is the worst song ever. "With or without you" sucks also. The Joshua Tree was a great album except for those two songs. I love The Rolling Stones, but "Miss You" is one the worst songs ever. Let It Bleed and Exile on Main St are The Stones best albums. Really need FM radio to stop playing "Miss You" and "Start Me Up" all the time. ZZ Top's best album is Afterburner, and the best songs are of course "Sleeping Bag" and "Stages". Please no more of that Duck Dynasty song, "Legs" and "Tush". Right wing AM radio is much more entertaining than left wing. Scott Walker should send up some WI National Guard troops to the Upper Peninsula and annex it. They'd be welcomed as liberating heroes. Michigan should just be that oven mitt. There would be some lawyers or politicians that would blah blah you can't do that, but then people would acknowledge the map looks a lot better and say that was a good move. Pepsi is better than Coke, WalMart is better than Amazon, and the National League is better than the American League.
