Football Games Are Too Long?

Postby donovan » Tue Jan 10, 2017 6:56 pm

There is a basic rule in my life...if it is fun, make it last longer. If it is work, speed it up.

"No, no!" said the Queen. "Sentence first–verdict afterward."
"Stuff and nonsense!" said Alice "The idea of having the sentence first!"
"Hold your tongue!" said the Queen, turning purple.
"I won't!" said Alice.
"Off with her head!" the Queen shouted at the top of her voice."

Yep...like your philosophy.

Rule changes lengthen games...having 8 or 9 plays reviewed in the booth adds minutes.

Showing on TV..means TV timeouts for commercials.

I don't notice the time if it is a good game. If it isn't I generally turn it. I don't see a problem. I do think they stop it for replay too much.
