NFL: Why I Do Not Care

Well it is that time of year again when the Super Bowl is coming up and teams are reaching the end of the playoffs. Personally I look forward to this time of year, not because I like watching football but because I no longer have to endure watching the sport for a few months. I'm sorry but I do not see why these guys get paid millions of dollars to play this sport. Often times the players that get paid the most are the ones that get hurt the most or really are just not that good. Now I am not saying I could play football any better, in fact I know I would be terrible but I just hate seeing these athletes getting paid so much for really not doing a whole lot.

Typically I only watch the one game a year and that is the Super Bowl and honestly I only watch it for the halftime show and the commercials. I couldn't care less about the teams that are in it especially since most of the time it is the same teams like the Steelers, the Patriots, the Packers, the Saints, or the Cowboys. Some of these teams are made up of people that honestly are not the greatest people or they have been surrounded by scandal whether in their professional career or their college career. I also think that the NFL season goes for way longer than it should. I mean most sports seasons go longer than they should.

When I was younger I would watch football but that is because it would always be playing on Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays because of my dad. After I lost my dad football would only be played on Sundays and it was usually either the Colts or the Bears in my household. Now that I have gone off to college I just do not watch football. Its usually playing at work but I do not really watch it. In other words football in the NFL is just not interesting to watch anymore.
