  • Yes, this IS IRL-related


    Surely something to think about...

    ...I believe you're saying that this equates with the Indycar Series in that having a 'condensed' schedule we should anticipate, appreciate and enjoy each and every race in that it is only for a few months.

    BTW- in regards to the actual article, I hope that the NFL owners leave the current play-off schedule alone.

      Interesting point. But remember, in the time leading up to the begining of the NFL season (or the Olympics), there is a collosal amount of publicity, both free and self funded in the media. The IRL cannot claim that.

      Ah, there's nothing more exciting than science. You get all the fun of sitting still, being quiet, writing down numbers, paying attention... Science has it all.

        As a Colts fan it always takes me a long, long time before I feel like watching football again...

          i totally agree with the article

          i consider myself a sports nut but the constant bombardment and over hype has gotten to the point where i have without question cutback my sports intake

          take college basketball for example.there are up to ten games on a night.in the old days when i came across a game i would get exited but now i'll often skip right past it knowing that it's no big deal anymore

          One of the many reasons i will NEVER sit through a NASCAR winston cup race again is the nonstop overhype.if they aren't telling you how great the race you are watching is they sure as hell are telling you that next week will be the best ever(a page stolen right out of pro wrestling's playbook!and not the only wrestling move that NASCAR loves to use)it is obnoxious

          i have now narrowed my "sports plate" to the following items

          1.college football-this contradicts my entire argument but i can't get enough of college football.i have season tix in knoxville and go to every Vols game.I will watch every game i can when the vols are away and plan my weekly schedule around sat afternoon football.

          2.college basketball-i basically watch maybe 5-8 regular season games but pretty much come tourny time i'm glued to the set.with the vols doing so well the reg season total will likely be higher this year but not much.the reg season just doesn't mean that much a big reason why i hope we NEVER see a playoff in college football(another thread-another day)

          3.IRL-i'll watch close to every race unless somthing important is happening.come the Month of May I'm consumed.everyday in may is pretty much devoted to the 500 mile race.will be in attendance on the 28th.after indy i'll watch the races that come on tv untill football starts then there is just no time.i would still keep up with who wins the races and championship but i'm to busy with football and real life to watch racing.this is why the new schedule is a beautiful thing

          thats pretty much it
