Anyone who has ever sat at work and thought, “This meeting could have been via email,” asks this question. Why do you get distracted when the NFL schedule is revealed little by little during the week?
A sports league, where teams play one day a week for a third of the year, somehow took over the entire schedule and our attention and means nothing other than the league. Making it look like something you’ve been doing for months that doesn’t end with a “ber” or “uary” is a good thing, but buying it all of us is a trick.
It starts innocently with mini camps and organized team activities. It’s a long off-season, so it’s good for everyone to stay on the same page to stay in shape and keep everything. It takes you to a training camp that doesn’t matter in any sport. However, from the date of the first report until the preseason is finally over, it somehow eats up half the time of the season itself.
The monster, of course, is a draft from Philadelphia’s smoke-filled hotel ballroom. Team owners, led by Bert Bell, find that they can assign players to teams so they don’t have to compete with each other to pay. Fair market value for those players at a three-day dorkfest on the Las Vegas Strip. People dress up, paint their faces, pay thousands of dollars for hotels and air tickets… If the Vikings hadn’t gone to buy more potato chips, here’s what they can do in 3 hours on Zoom.
At least in the draft there is an unknown element. Since the NFL schedule is based on division rotations and previous season standings, we already know who plays who, home and away. All that’s left is the date, but we already know the date. You’ll be sitting in front of the television on Thursday nights, all day Sunday, and Monday nights. Because you are inevitably addicted to this league. They are leaking some details leading to a full schedule release. each TV partnerPeople who put all their money into football, wait a minute… Speaking of… Dukes.
And that’s ok! Enjoy soccer! But you don’t have to worry about this. What the Rams and the Broncos get can be cool. Nickelodeon treatment On Christmas (anyhow, the NFL is already getting players to play enough games as Christmas is just around the corner, and that game won’t be as good as the league and Viacom think it is). It can also be completely ignored until the full schedule is revealed.
Football doesn’t have to think until May 9th, 10th, 11th, or the full schedule, May 12th. From then on until the end of summer, you can see it anytime, and it isn’t. change. It makes sense for anyone going to a soccer game or buying a ticket, but wouldn’t it be nice to have all the information at once even for you? Instead, for one or one reason, look for a match or two before Thursday when the schedule is announced in a TV special. The NFL has its own TV channel and over 8,000 hours a year no one plays the NFL. Football… Most NFL football is not even available on the NFL Network.
Actually, I have to do a few more public schedules in the summer. It will not only help fill some of that time, but will also serve as a reminder of what your schedule is. Because after four days of non-stop hype about it, we’ll all forget 99% of the NFL schedule by Friday afternoon. The stupid things we pay attention to.
