I think the ratings decline in the NFL is real, and probably higher than the 10% that was used. I don't necessarily believe it's a college vs the pros issue. Instead, I feel the NFL has made decisions that are having a negative effect. Also, we're in a culture that is trending away from hours of TV time.
Some things the NFL has decided to embrace that hurts them: Fantasy Football - It's about stats not games. As stated by op, suspensions - no rhyme or reason. Red Zone channel - see fantasy football. Making football too important - It's fun when it's a game you're viewing for entertainment, but when many aspects become tainted with social/medical/or disciplinary issues, it's no longer entertainment. Lastly I'd say the NFL's desire to promote 'Play 60' is actually pushing people away from their televisions. I think it's the right thing to promote, mind you, but actually undermines their gravy train.
I'm a cord cutter, which hasn't really changed my NFL intake. I watch a bit after church on Sunday afternoons and try to catch some of the Sunday and Monday night tilts. I mainly carve out football time on Saturday's around UM games. If I put anymore priority on football, I may have to find a new family.

I find it sad that Damefan1 seems to have abandoned his blog. The last post is over a year old. He was like every ND fan I've ever met only cranked up to 11. Cheers Damefan, pour another glass, smoke another cigar maybe next year...

I expected a lot more from OU's qb, thought he was a preseason Heisman candidate. That guy can't throw! Hope he figures something out this week

Really liked the part where RR and the team are walking down the hill and you get a glimps of RR's Nike flip flops.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||I'll break it into three||
I'll break it into three categories:
1. Played against: James Darling in high school, watched him, literally, jump over my cousin on his way to a 60 yard score. Played LB at Wazzu.
2. Watched in person: Woodson, Rose Bowl.
3. On TV: Deion Sanders, never have these eyes seen someone that fast. Bolt probably changes that, but on a football field, he was amazing.

Sounds like fun, I'm in
|9 weeks 12 hours ago||Same thing||
Same thing happened to my 3 year old LG earlier this summer. Had to replace it. Went with the 60" Samsung, looking forward to crystal clear UM victories this fall!

How can you tell who's who?

Thanks Yost, you literally made me spit coffee...

You nailed it! I would add a 'Skin' sticker to the back window of that Silverado

What pisses off Braylon more, this or his brother not getting offered?

Didn't realize I was plagiarizing, my apologies to Mr Chappelle. Evidently we agree

I'm not sure how relevant SS is today, but their treatment of Oscar has enabled many a generation to step over and look down on those living in garbage cans.

Pretty sure the return policy is different on electronics than the other products in the store. However, there protection plan is quite a bit better than most competitors.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Just bought||
Just bought a 60" Samsung 1080p. Didn't go with the 4k because of what's already been said. Don't feel like I need to be on the front end of that trend. I'd recommend checking out what your local Costco has. Their protection plan is nice, you'll end up with 5 years of coverage. We cut the cord recently, so went with a smart tv.

It's a shame WD, you're living in the golden age of craft beers and you don't even realize it...

|12 weeks 6 days ago||You're right||
The only caveat I'll give is that Obscured by Clouds, as well as More, were both movie soundtracks and not always included in their 'discography'. And now that my total Floyd nerd level has been exposed, I'll shuffle back to my corner. Luckily there's a sweet pair of headphones there and lots of albums!

I was cleaning up the house the other day singing particle man, my kids thought I'd gone off the deep end. Good call LSA!

|13 weeks 5 hours ago||I do love||
I do love Moving Pictures, probably Rush's finest studio album, but I can't include Hemespheres without A Farewell to Kings. What's Cygnus X without its first half?
|13 weeks 5 hours ago||Good point||
Meddle is a fantastic album, but personally, I give the nod to Animals. Meddle is definitely more experimental, but Animals is absolutely a doosy of a concept album. I feel like I need to personally apologize to Roger Waters after listening to it. Who am I kidding, you could list any three Floyd albums and I'd be a happy man. Really love what they were about and how they created their art.
|13 weeks 6 hours ago||If||
If The Wall was made before Animals (still an amazing album) this whole discussion would be for 2nd place.

Apologies for the bad formatting, on my phone
