Thanks Centrist for some factual analysis. Up until a few years ago, after a touchdown or field goal, we'd have 3-5 minutes of commercials and then the kickoff. Play would continue until another score or a change of posession.

 

However, about 4-5 years ago, the NFL changed to one of their most horrible advertising policies. It's bad enough enduring 3-5 minutes of commercials after a score, but now they STOP THE GAME AFTER THE KICKOFF and force us to watch another 2 minutes of commercials.

 

I think this latest advertising policy is horrendous.


It's all about those huge contracts to everyone involved.....as you know.  Someone suggested it already, but I'm a fan of charging $4.99 and let me watch which game I want with no commercials.

 

But for now, I dvr the games and watch a game, including replaying plays I want to see again, in under an hour....so much more efficient.

 

I do boycott every product I can that's advertised during NFL games.....it's quite a list.

 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------50 years of tv  football commercials and you are just now complaining? Football games are longer than ever due to the increase in commercials as CeeTee correctly pointed out.  A score.....two minutes of commercials.....kick-off....another 1 minute of commercials, sometimes a minute and a half.  It's outragous......BUT, that's how these players, the league and teams get paid millions!!!  Games used to last 2.5 hrs....now it's 3.20.....another two beers if your at the game.....Put the blame where it belongs-with the players .   The players?  Hardly..... 64% of Americans are with Trump with this one.  1)  you found a poll you liked?  Shocking!  2)  Who cares; they polled the wrong population.  They should have polled those who watch the games every week;  3) do we need a #3?

President Donald Trump has been tweeting more frequently about the stock market, whose record-setting performance has been one of the highlights of the 45th president. But it turns out, equities were advancing even more quickly in the early days of President Barack Obama.

S&P Global Market Intelligence compiled S&P 500 SPX, +0.41% performance for each postwar president, through the July of each president’s first term.

PresidentS&P 500, taking office through end of July
Eisenhower-5.3%
Kennedy11.3%
Nixon-9.7%
Carter-4%
Reagan-0.6%
George H.W. Bush20.7%
Clinton3.4%
George W. Bush-9.8%
Obama22.6%
Trump8.8%

Of course, early performance is just that, and may as much reflect the policies of the previous president as the current one.

 

Obama trumps Trump in stock-market gains through July

 

But thanks for asking......

 

If ratings are down, one of the agreed upon reasons is the length of games. Football is 60 minutes, but it takes more than 3 hours because there are about 2 hours of commercials during an NFL game. Of course, Trump Cult members always believe every word their hero utters.                    This has been the case for over 50 years . You just now notice.?  Another lie from a Conservative.  Won't you guyz just stop with the lies?

 

An average NFL game: more than 100 commercials and just 11 minutes of play

 

NFL games running longer than ever in 2015

 

Poor attempt to blame it on the fans and not the players.  Another lie....he didn't blame the fans.

 

Please Conservatives....please stop with the intellectual dishonesty.  You give us seniors a bad name.

Hey, where's that repeal and replacement of Obamacare on the first day in office?

Where's the wall paid for by Mexico?

Where's tax reform?

Where's infrastructure upgrades?

etc.

What a shocker! A bona fide member of the Trump Cult is defending his hero just like he does 100% of the time. 

 

Trump Cult members don't deal with facts, they merely blindly repeat what their hero says. Remember, they're cult members because they never challenge, question, or disagree with their hero.

 

For the rest of us, we know there were just a few players who peacefully protested for less than 2 minutes before a game. Most Americans, just like me, completely ignored them and couldn't wait for the game to start. They were nothing but a brief footnote we forgot once the game started.

 

But thanks to the leader of the Trump Cult, virtually the entire league, incuding many owners, are now joining the protest. 

 

Finally, anyone who thinks the past 8 months of the Trump Administration has been a success, is not living in the real world.
