I wonder if it's headed in the direction of NASCAR.


The WSJ did an article a few years ago that said the ball was in play for an average of less than 20 minutes in each NFL game.

NASCAR's TV ratings have fallen off a cliff in the past decade as people have realized that in 500 laps, maybe 6 or 7 have real excitement (last couple of laps, some wrecks, maybe a good pass here or there).

I wonder if the same thing is happening in football. People just aren't going to sit for 3 or 3 and a half hours for 15-20 minutes of action.
