All of my stars are for Delbert Mann being so unapologetic, with five phantom stars for the line at 1:25.
I work with the dude who made this vid. He said as he was editing, he didn't like how it was turning out, until he came up with those script lines. Then it all fell into place.
NFL Films used to be a good company that made quality television often. Glad I got out when I did, though.
Save your strolls down memory lane for poesports.
This kind of thing would never happen to me.
No one would preempt the Pack.

If athletes are so bad they can't even win a championship for good, but have to battle for it every year, they deserve to have their broadcast cut short.

Tough titties.. do you know how many times I've been pissed because a show I liked was preempted for baseball or football or some crappy sports thing.

Football games are supposed to be one fucking hour anyhow. So two thirds of the alloted time for a football game is NOT PLAYING.
You're making the mistake of assuming that the game is actually being played for the full 60 minutes of time that the clock is running. That's not remotely true either.
According to Elias Sports Beareu or whoever crunches this stuff, ESPN Magazine published that it works like this:
AVERAGE AMOUNT OF TIME IN EACH SPORT THE BALL IS ACTUALLY IN PLAY:
Soccer: >90 minutes
Hockey: ~60 minutes
Basketball: 48 minutes
for some reason my post cut off. Sorry for the duplicate. I'll continue.
Football: less than 9 minutes
Baseball: less than 9 minutes
Also, naturally, this happened to Jets fans when they were winning, and naturally this was how they found out the Jets lost somehow.
