The NFL Gave A Small, Thoughtful Gift To Its Fans By Pushing Games Back On Sundays
You ever get pissed off when the 1:00 NFL game is running a little long, and you have to miss the end of it because the 4:15 game is about to start? According to the NFL, that’s happened 44 times since 2009, whether it pissed you off or not. And flipping the channels on you was mandatory for networks. So, the has league decided to move the 4:15, doubleheader games forward 10 minutes to 4:25. If the rule had been effect since 2009, the 44 missed finishes would have been reduced to just 15. Oh, and we’re talking purely in Eastern Time, by the way. Just because.
So, should you be happy? Absolutely. The NFL did something that leagues are almost never praised for: they did something entirely for the fans. It’s unlikely that this “problem” was losing the league a discernible amount of fans or money; this was just a move made to improve the viewer’s experience. The NFL gets it, and this is part of the reason why its the greatest league in America.
Jimmy Traina points out one of the only downfalls, that viewers of 60 Minutes and NBC’s Football Night in America will have to wait 10 more minutes for their shows to start. They can suck it up. Aside from that, this is not a big deal, but it’s certainly nice. Thank you, NFL, for being the loving parent that gives us a little gift, just because you love us. We didn’t even ask for anything! Even if most fans don’t notice, it’s the thought that counts. Love you too, football!
