And waiting in line and dealing with crowds doesn't help.

I'm just waiting for VR to come along and kill the stadiums for good.

OK.

They've pissed off all the right wingers with the "take a knee" business.

Now it's the left wingers' turn to be pissed off.

The NFL has provided some unity to the otherwise divisive political atmosphere in this county by managing to be disliked by the entire political spectrum.

Hey Suddenly!

I just realized I have been remiss in not posting our official return of the Prodigal video in your honor.

Now that you're back, how about an avatar? :)

Update: All Four NFL Playoff Games See Double-Digit Ratings Decrease
Sports Illustrated
The NFL had a disastrous weekend when it came to ratings. Numbers have been down all season and it was more of the same for the wild-card games. The biggest surprise was that the best game (Panthers-Falcons) had the biggest decrease year over year. Yes, markets were a big factor, but that was a competitive and entertaining game. Here's the breakdown:

Titans-Chiefs (14.7) was down 11 percent versus last year's Raiders-Texans game.

Falcons-Rams (14.9) was down 10 percent versus last year's Lions-Seahawks game.

Bills-Jaguars (17.2) was down 10 percent versus last year's Dolphins-Steelers game.

Panthers-Saints (20.4) was down 21 percent versus last year's Giants-Packers game.

Dunno about tax breaks, but the NFL gets all manner of really big local subsidies in the form of venues.
