re: NFL Thread: Week 1 - Glorious
I'm sure they'll get a deal done with the officials. I'm almost always on the side of the worker, and this is no exception. Pay the officials for fuck's sake. I'm ignorant of the situation admittedly. I'm assuming what they're asking for won't break the most successful league (by far too) in the United States.
As for preseason, it's awful. It's a love/hate deal for sure. It's great to see football back, but you only get starters for a quarter if that. Game 3 is the best since it's usually a full half. Otherwise, I watch the starters and then turn it off. Football loses a ton when it's not for real.
