Voters are irrational and inconsistent, borderline stupid?


COLOR ME SHOCKED!

Or maybe its a clever plot by NFL to keep fanboys talking about football during the off season?

This is the same NFL who can't figure out how to run an all-star game. I don't think they're that clever.

Yes but a RBs average playing life is roughly 4 years. To do what Martin did was great. I too don't think playoffs matter.

They are clever enough to be the top sport in the US by a long shot. Baseball would kill for the ratings that football gets.

Baseball has 7 times more games a season than football does. When you're a commodity event (once a week versus several times a week) it's easier to have higher ratings.

I will say, though, football socialism (revenue sharing) is keeping the league solvent unlike many barely-hobbling NBA and MLB franchises, so for that I commend whichever Commish thought that up.

I agree with you about the commodity event, but it's scary how much football kills baseball. On Monday, Oct. 3rd, 2011, the Yankees-Tigers playoff game got a 2.1 TV rating; the regular season Colts-Bucs game got a 4.5 TV rating...without Peyton Manning playing. Hell, the NFL draft is an event that got a 5.47 on a Thursday night in April.

Chris Carter should be in the HOF.

Baseball is also an absolutely fucking awful sport. It's only fun to watch if you're there in person drinking and hanging out with people. Otherwise it's six hours of guys scratching their asses and strikes/balls. 9 innings, play until 3 outs, an out is 3 strikes or a billion foul balls, ... Do you see a problem/pattern here? In football you know "hey, this play sucked, but in 30s they'll run another one" and there's a bit more strategy to down/distance/point. Plus, even a "bad" play has some action to it where everybody is involved. For 90% of a baseball game you could have the entire infield and outfield sitting on the bench and just have the pitcher play.

I dont' understand people who watch the draft. I get the day-after coverage from NFL.com or similar sites.

We're in complete agreement on your last line.
