Football Magic


There were six NFL games last weekend, and, let's face it.  Most were awful.  Bad play, lopsided scores.

The TV ratings are in.

America doesn't care about the quality of play.  All the games did very well, and it's no wonder the TV networks pay a premium to broadcast the games.

Of course, a cold weekend in the northeast kept people at home and in front of their televisions.

The solution to more compelling football is easy and it will never happen.  Nearly half of the league now makes the playoffs.  Cut the number.  Fewer teams mean better teams and better play.

You can stop laughing now.  The trend in every sport is toward more playoff teams, not less.  

Follow the money.

There are four games this weekend.  How many will be good ones?
