Flagged & Stared .. here's why ...
my opinion ..
Coming from a big family, a brother and 2 half brothers and 3 sisters, football season was EVERYTHING.. at the age of 10 yrs old, I loved every minute
of it...when the excitement was those teams playing in the north on the snow, mud and rain.....THAT was football~!
never got into contact sports much but football was my favorite because it allowed players to play like the sport was designed to play; keep the rules
simple, don't trash the QB, for obvious reasons, no false starts, ect, the old rules, before 1995ish"
I think I quite watching after 98', seen to many blatant bad calls and nothing to take it back even after the review on slow mo..
announcers stating even .."well.......i guess they're gonna let it stay ...." (with an awkward silence of 10secs.. ) then 2 weeks later, reading the
news that a ref got fined for taking bribes...........
that was pretty much it for me.. the last defense for a great game has been compromised....all for $$$$$$ .....
ETA: and RARELY saw injuries that put players on a 6 week leave or no season.. which is odd given that the equipment is better than it ever was
