Why do you like football?

I don't get it.

What is it about that sport that makes it so much more popular than other sports here in the US?

  • I don't like it at all and I wish I did because I'm out of the loop for a good part of the year. I've tried to understand it and haven't been successful. Baseball, now, that's a different story

  • I love College football more. Tailgating, friends, food! A party every weekend!

  • I like betting, tailgating, beer, the football food, the weather, the camaraderie, the rivalries, etc.

    LOL, same here! I don't like football. Mostly I find it boring. I understand it, I even know most of the penalties. I just don't enjoy watching it, unless I am at the game. Baseball though, that is a great game!

  • Depending on the game, I find it kind of entertaining. Plus, it's what is on the big TV being played at live volume, so there's really no avoiding it. My football season motto is 'If you can't beat them, either join them or go shopping'.

  • Not a fan, either. The only way I even like viewing sports is seeing it live.

  • I don't care that much about football itself, but I'm entertained by other people watching football because people who are usually of sound mind start yelling and shaking their fists at the TV as if they think the players and coaches can hear them and are interested in what they have to say. It's comic relief for me.

  • I only watch college football (ROLL TIDE!). Idk what it is...the "thrill of the game"? Basketball is the same way for me, I love it too.

    Ballad, you'd love watching my dad then, he'll yell at the tv, "run you son of a bitch run!"

  • I love it... the time of year, the game, the family/friends... the excitement. I mean, I get so into I sometimes think "I" am part of the team... lmao. Huge Cowboys fan, always have been and don't miss a game.
