So I jokingly said the world would have to explode for me to stop watching football, and then last night happened. The officiating and pace of the game last night was truly awful. It was exhausting. Outside of Broncos fans, I don't think anyone wants to see flags fly like this. Is there really any means, realistically, for fans to let the NFL know that this is not the product we want? Because, at least in the short term, fans are going to keep watching, keep going to games, keep playing fantasy football, buying merchandise, etc. There will be no repercussions to the NFL for turning watching football into a laborious act. It will take a long time before the NFL turns into the NBA and people stop watching. No one wants the officials to be a big part of the game. Especially a game as physical as football. We all get it when it's about player safety. But when it's simply to let the offenses have an easier go at it, screw that. Unfortunately, I just don't know what outlet the fans have to express concern...but I welcome any thoughts.
