  • It holds no excitement for me. Watching men run back and forth trying to get past another team to cross a line.

    Now give me Hockey and I'm in.

  • It's the one sport I don't really know how to play. I don't mind it but don't go out of my way to watch it.

  • I just don't understand it. I'm not much of a sports person though. The only sport I'll watch on TV and enjoy is hockey. Going to games in real life is always fun, though, no matter what the sport is.

  • I don't mind it, but it's not earth shattering if I watch a game. Like, men ..... how can missing a game ruin your day? Or if your team looses your day is shot. I could see if you knew a player personally, but come one. It's a game that has no affect on your life.

  • I don't like football because it is boring, I don't understand the game and I hate the meat head mentality that seems to take over most men when a game is on.

  • I like football and have watched a lot of games with DH this year...it's some of the rules that I don't understand.

    1) Pass Interference--isn't that the point...keep the team of catching the ball, any attempt to do that is technically a "pass interference." An interception is a "pass interference."
    2) Holding--Ummm...you have to "hold" to tackle sometimes.

    I think there are a few others, but I can't think of them right now...

  • I probably don't like football because I have never been that interested in sports... I enjoy the arts, movies, plays, etc.....and instead of sports like football I would be more inclined to enjoy martial arts, ballet, ice skating, etc.....I have attended a professional football game once when someone gave me some tickets, and I did enjoy myself, but it didn't capture my interest enough to go again without it being someone else's idea....Last year, I watched the Super Bowl and although it was a fun game, it was also an anomaly because the Saints were from New Orleans and I felt the city needed something to be excited about, so I was excited for their sake in wake of the Katrina disaster...but football on it's own just doesn't excite me...
