I am, in both theory and practice, still a Philadelphia Eagles fan. So I am plenty happy about their making it to the Super Bowl. But I also remember how ecstatic I was about it last go-round (in 2004, the "Donovan McNabb may have puked in the huddle" game), and there's no comparison. This is cool and all but it doesn't occupy most of my waking thoughts. Proof of my declining interest in the footbaw.

Football is declining in popularity. Some say it's because it's too brutal. If that's true please explain the continued popularity of boxing and now MMA?

speaking of my declining interest in football, I may bail on our fantasy league this year because I simply do not care

Why is your interest in football waning?

Why is your interest in football waning?

1. Increasingly it is evident that the violence in NFL football has long-term impact on its players, which makes the game difficult to enjoy.
2. All the issues with rules and interpretations, along with replay, make the game difficult to enjoy.
3. I got plenty of other shit going on and I just don't have the brain space for it.

Drew has some advice for you.

Yeah, that article is partly why I posted.

Does everybody feel the same as Carlos about the game itself?

I just played a bunch of electric guitar and apparently it angered up the blood.

Nah, I get it. The NFL is the worst. After the Oilers left Houston it took me 10 years before I watched another football game outside of the Superbowl. I became that guy that watches the game for the commercials, so embarrassing. I had to do a lot of mental gymnastics to work my head around it. The players are awful and the owners are worse. My policy of not knowing anything that goes on off the field has become untenable. What with the President getting involved and... I ask you how is it possible for the NFL to be wrong on both sides of the kneeling issue?

Have you seen Last Chance U? It's just so godawful horrible.

Oh yeah, don't get me started on college football. Got a lot of issues there too.

Interestingly I have been watching high school football the past couple years and have enjoyed it (which is easy to do when your kids' school is on a run of three straight state titles). The emphasis seems to be on teamwork and execution. Make the dang tackle, not so much "hit him so hard his teeth rattle."

Oh yeah, high school football is ruined for me now too. The school my nephew goes to got a new stadium a few years ago and it's the worst. It has a jumbotron and those long thin screens that run the entire length of the bleachers between the sections. This thing is a menace. If they just used it for announcements, or instant replay it would be cool, but it's instead virtually taken the place of the band, the drill team and the cheerleaders. Whenever there's a break in the action the damn thing comes on to fire up the crowd. That's what the band and the cheerleaders are there for!!! Half the time when the band does play they are competing with the goddamn jumbotron. They even have to wait for the jumbotron to finish it's business before they can play the fight song after a score. They even mix in a whole bunch of commercials too. I fuck*ng hate it. I have a nephew in the marching band, he's about to start his senior year. I went to see him march once and never returned. The rest of my family and everyone else there loved it. I couldn't find anyone who understood why I am so against it.

The worst part though is it was totally unnecessary, the entire stadium I mean. They already had a perfectly good stadium, still do. They still use it for JV games and track meets and such. But they spent 100 million dollars on a new stadium anyway.
