Our policians and the NFL

I am an NFL fan. I have been an NFL fan for many years. I tend to watch quite a few NFL games during the year.

You just have to read this piece:

Basically our politicians in Washington DC have decided to "interfere" with the NFL in order to ensure that the Saturday night football game is broadcast on NBC and CBS.

Good grief...

We have large and looming problems in this country and our politicians are worried about who can watch what football game on TV?

We need some new politicians...

The politicians interfere because we have a nation that is fanatical about sports.

Do you remember what happened when the end of a football or basketball game was cut away from to return to something else? The outrage that was spewed against the TV stations was over the top.

Personally, I don't care. I don't watch sports, and I think it is ridiculous that anyone who wants to watch anything else on weekends has to be fortunate enough to have cable or satellite.

Saturdays and Sundays on the regular TV stations are consumed with sports. And, Monday nights, and Thursday nights.

Perhaps it isn't the politicians - perhaps it is where we have put our priorities. The politicians are simply being politicians and kowtowing to the power of the sports crowd.
