so you're saying football and UFC must be really boring? both sports implement sex appeal
Yeah, two men hugging and rolling around is extremely boring to watch, and as much as I like the NFL the sport is actually only played for about 10 minutes. The rest of the time is spent in huddles, getting back to the huddle, moving the flags, getting back to the line, changing sides, changing players, or a timeout or sorts. And yes, I've timed it often, try it. Lots of plays only last about 3-5 seconds.
Ok, it's 11 minutes, here is an article.
[According to a Wall Street Journal study of four recent broadcasts, and similar estimates by researchers, the average amount of time the ball is in play on the field during an NFL game is about 11 minutes.]
NFL is exciting because most of the games are played on one day, there is betting, and it is very intense, with fewer games that make match ups exciting.
