    Am I the only one that's annoyed with all the commercial break they have during a football game.
    when ever i'm watching a football game I have to have a secondary program to watch when they go to commercial cause it happens so often.
    im gettin sick of it.

    Commercials? What are those?

    I DVR the games and start watching them 45 minutes to an hour late. 30 second skip button = no commercials.

    And, you can skip forward during any parts of the game when Don Shula is a guest in the booth!

    The money has to come from somewhere. If you want less commercials you'll get PPV.

    couldn't agree more. I always think about timing the commercials during a football game cuz I think at this point it's about 60% football and 40% commercials which is so ridiculous.

    The bride and I got in a tiff last night when I started screaming at the commercials....but like the man says, it costs the networks a bundle to give us the games...they are entitled to make a profit. Still pisses me off.

    I don't mind the commercials as long as the game is free.

    There should be a rule, NBC, FOX, CBS, ABC = commercials
    NFLN, ESPN = no commercials (or at least a whole lot less)

    Good idea, but your not watching the game live. Maybe its just me, but I prefer watching a live game.

    I liked how the World Cup did it with the sponsorships by the score and surrounding the field. Like now, instead of seeing the things that just says Chargers over and over, slap a Budwieser and Subway sign up there. Then have commercials at the end of each quarter, and at the 2 minute warnings.

    The only time I really get annoyed with commercials is when there is a commercial after a score, then the kickoff, then another commercial, especially after the Patriots have just given up a score. I want them to answer back ASAP.

    Just got to get it out of your head. Even if you watch DirecTV live, you're still 3 or 4 seconds behind real time.

    I couldn't do that. Call me mentally challenged if you will, but I couldn't stand knowing that Pat's scored a touchdown and everybody is cheering but me 'cause I'm on delay.

    My concern would be I is it would be close game 3 mins left on my game clock and someone tells me who won in overtime b/c I am 15 mins behind the game.

    What the NFL Network did was disgusting. There wasn't a halftime show, only a 15 minute commercial break. The NFL will drive it's casual viewers away if they keep this up.
