I could go on at length critiquing the NFL product (obviously their players are great), but the short version:
- Watching the NFL on tv, it seems like 50 percent freakin' commercials.
- most of the teams now, by design, are equally mediocre. The Super Bowls might involve fewer NFC blowouts like in the 80s and 90s, but then the playoffs have turned into a "whichever flawed team gets hot" scenario. We don't get to see greatness like the 90s Niners or 90s Cowboys teams. No more Ali v Frazier heavyweight wars.
- There is way more regional flavor, passion, tradition, cultural grudges, etc. in college football.
