Study: NFL games only have 11 minutes of action
 
I Thought this was a very interesting read.. Football is America's best sport and has been for years. This is one of the reasons why the NFL will continue to dominate the sporting world. I Just thought this was pretty crazy that we can sit through 60 minutes of commercials just for football lol.

We ran a similar study across multiple sports a few months ago. If I remember right there is actually more game action in a baseball game than football. Which is interesting because we think of football as a fast and exciting sport, and baseball as slow and dull.

That is why the rest of the world does not get into American football like those of us who grew up with it and played it as kids.
Rest of the world does not get our made for TV sport. Replays during the huddle etc.
The original football (what we call soccer) is the worlds most popular game.
Not much scoring in soccer, but no TV timeouts, breaks to the fridge for more beer or drain the lizard. Not as tv friendly.

You're absolutely right Defensewins, football is the perfect game for the television age. For someone with ADD like me, I love how football rewards my ten seconds of concentration with 50 seconds of me time, in which to take a sip of beer and eat a couple of chips. Definitely too many commercials these days though.

Yeah, I read that today and I honestly found it a little shocking. I will be paying closer attention to how much actual action there is in a 2-3 hour broadcast

You will never see the group involvement in ANY other sport.. not soccer, not polo, not water polo, not nothing... it just won't happen.. it will take the invention of another sport to be so

We patiently sit through three hours of mostly anxious anticipation awaiting the ultimate outcome of a game where 3-4 critical plays generally decide the outcome. It dosen't even take eleven minutes to run those plays....Interesting observation however.

FOX is murder on the commercials, sometimes I think they forget there's even a game going on.

yeah, the biggest difference being that everyone on the football field is playing

in soccer you have guys standing.. in baseball you have a couple of defensive guys per hit.. when there's a hit.. otherwise.. pitcher catcher... batter?

etc
