Just logged on facebook for the first time in a few days and logged off in a matter of seconds when I saw my feed cluttered with nothing but people bitching about some football sh!t.
Don't understand why some people like watching this sport so much. I can understand having fun actually playing it, but the whole spectator thing and how some people get mad when "their" team loses, or acting like NOTHING else matters when the game is on, I'll never understand.
Anybody else feel this way?

I enjoy watching it, but like others, only the Super Bowl, and it's more of an excuse to drink ****ty beer and socialize. There's just too much dead time. They need to cut 3 hours down to about 1 hour.
Do not be persecuted by the pompous fedora, balanced by the equilibrium, fortified by the
government's inability to eradicate, or foreshadow—taken from the Hebrew word: foreskin
I feel the same way about most sports (but I really do not enjoy American football)
When it comes to football or when I was younger watching MLB (Yankees fan here) I'd only enjoy watching the important matches.
I suppose I dont really like team sports haha
Needless to say, the above, factored with the fact that Im brownish and have a funny first name means I had one hell of a time growing up in high school in the states
If people cared half as much about things that actually mattered (auditing the federal reserve, participating in local politics - where votes matter so much more, volunteering), who knows where we'd be. Then there's fantasy football . . . .
Newsflash, op - some people like things you don't like. Get over it. Don't be so surprised if you are invited to a party in the fall/winter on a saturday/sunday and Football happens to be on the TV, and people happen to be interested in it.
Amen. I never understood it either. Being in New York, you won't believe the amount of sheeple here that blindly root for the giants, jets, bills, yankees, mets, nicks, rangers, islanders because it's the cool thing to do and part of being "patriotic"
I only watch the superbowl because it's more of a social thing where you eat and drink with friends and do nothing all day
Personally, I watch real football(soccer) Not this helmet helmet rugby bullsh!t with timeouts every minute so they can cut to a commercial
i like to watch a game every now and then and i have my teams i root for, but i don't understand how or why some people are so emotionally invested in it. So what, your team lost on sunday, don't come into work all hot about it.
Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.
I enjoy catching a game at the World Cup, or the odd hockey game if its on TV - but it was pretty boring at my buddies last Saturday watching Michigan vs Notre Dame for 3+ hours, I must say. I think I'd have more fun playing like the other guy in this thread mentioned.
Football (futbol) is played using the feet. What is shown on TV is throwball.
I'll watch my college team play, and maybe the Superbowl, but that's it. Could care less about roided out man-children that will be broke 5 years after they 'retire'.
... you're not a hipster. But you definitely have hipster tendencies. Stay vigilant... like diabetes, you can manage this.

Football from the high school level on up needs to really look at making rule changes so these guys aren't coming out of their careers with scrambled brains. That's the real tragedy. If someone can get paid a million bucks to play a game that's good for them... but if that game leaves them a drooling veggie after repeated concussions, that's no good. But it's like crashes in NASCAR or fights in hockey, the fans love the hard helmet-crunching hits.Could care less about roided out man-children that will be broke 5 years after they 'retire'.

I don't practice llanteria
Even though I played sports as a kid, I was never that into them. I feel like sports have changed so much and evolved into something ridiculous. Some of these player salaries and all the steroids garbage. Every player getting arrested for guns or drugs or DUI's, frivolous spending, etc.
It really doesn't seem to be about the game. Even so, the rules have been changed and manipulated so much that the soul of the game really isn't there anymore. This of course is my opinion and if sports are your hobby, right on. Hobbies are good. Things you enjoy are good.
I will admit to enjoying the luxury suite at the Rangers game I went to last year. I didn't pay attention to the game, though. I have fond memories of going to Dodgers games as a kid. That's definitely not the same anymore. I'd be afraid of getting stabbed.
oh god I friggin hate football
I think the reason is because I've always lived in fairly close proximity to the horseshoe (OSU)
college kids and all the other "I bleed scarlet and grey" hardcore fans act like complete fvcking retards on game day, and that's putting it nicely.
my mom used to have to shut all the windows and doors in our house when my dad was watching Ohio state b/c she didn't want neighbors to think they were having a domestic dispute
so rediculous. srsly. it's fvcking COLLEGE football, not even pro, get a fvcking life morans
sorry if I offended you flashred, you're my homie, lol
Count me in. I got a bunch of slack for a similar topic.
You don't understand why people are so into it. I don't understand why people get so worked up over people liking something that they don't. I mean, I hate NASCAR but I don't get all pissed off when I hear people talking about it or when they post on FB about it. I skip past it and move on.
I much prefer the NHL, but......
I just watch Lions games if I'm home. It does make a huge difference if you played the sports you watch. Esp growing up playing hockey, then going to the game live with good seats. You have to appreciate the speed, size and skill. It's like being an amateur artist and going to a museum to see the classics, or being in a garage band and seeing a highly skilled tight band playing live.
