    I don't hate football as a sport... it's rather fun to play. I DO hate stadium funding and the strain that stadiums put on the local infrastructure though... our city paid a shit ton of money to build a new stadium for the Colts and as a result cut way back on the funding for streets, education and public transportation, among a few necissary local costs

    I also find the fact that the game takes FOREVER and very little of it is action to be rather boring... I prefer football over Ti-Vo where all of the talking, setup, and commercials can be skipped and the game is about 45 min or so! Even so, the whole Colts stadium funding thing and the inconvenience in delayed busses I have to put up with whenever they have an event in their stupid downtown stadium has made me root AGAINST them in every game

    The man is a big football fan... in return I watched every World Cup game that I could, vuvuzelas and all

    I hate professional sports, it's the biggest drain on the economy besides military welfare, imo. If all of that money was redirected into the space industry, we could be living on mars by now. fucking jocks.

    If there wouldn't be professional sports, the people would waste their money on other kinds of entertainment, and kids would be even fatter because they would have less sporty role models.

    Still, I appreciate this thread. Soccer 4 life!

    I hate football because I'm a skinny white guy that could never play . That's why I don't give a crap. Not only that but while it's fascinating to hear people talk at such length about a topic that they love I just can't help but falling into my own world of thought when I watch those games. Thank God for replays or otherwise I would never see what's going on. Maybe it's better that I don't go to a live game. While I do hate football, I do respect the complexity of the game. Sure Jocks my be meatheads academically but football is definitely one of the more complex athletic sports out there when it comes to running plays and what counts as a disqualification. I think I do like that segmented nature of the sport versus others like soccer and basketball where plays seem to be happening in all too real a time.

    Watching football is as interesting as watching a porn flick with the sex edited out.

    Thumbs down The Football Trance and Advertisers

    The thing about football is that it is repetitive.

    First they have a match and one team wins and the other loses. Then they have another match and one team wins and another loses. And so this repetition continues forever.

    And as a trance can be introduced by any repetition, the purpose of football is to induct us into the football trance.

    And in a trance we are susceptible to suggestion. And in particular, we are susceptible to the suggestions of advertisers.

    How is that different from ANY competition? Every sport has a winner and a loser... Or a 1st, 2nd, 3rd. Sports weren't invented by advertising companies.

    I don't care for it. I really have trouble watching sports to be honest (except hockey...there's a lot more unpredictability in if and when fights will happen and such...exciting!)

    The only reason why I care for football is because I put money into it, and I love money more than I hate football...but I can't fucking STAND THE COMMENTATORS!! They are the most annoying people in the world, I'd rather listen to Sarah Palin talk about the great energy state of Alaska for an hour.
