Maybe its the fact the NFL is even considering moving the Super Bowl overseas.  Maybe it is watching my home team send "home" games to London.  Maybe it is watching Roger Goodell penalize every hit that doesn't involve pillows. Maybe its those stupid PLAY60 commercials.  Maybe it was the annoying NFL commercial bragging about making the game safer.  Whatever it is, I am really getting sick of the NFL.. I love football and the Bucs, but...

You're almost completely alone:

Beginning with the Thursday night NFL season opener, viewers across the country got back to football and tuned into NFL games and visited NFL digital media properties in record numbers.
 
A record 107.4 million fans tuned into Kickoff Weekend games (Sept. 8-12) on CBS, ESPN, FOX and NBC to rank as the most-viewed opening weekend ever.
 
Three Kickoff Weekend games topped 25 million average viewers -- the NBC Thursday night opener (Saints-Packers, 27.2 million), FOX's national game telecast (mostly Giants-Redskins, 25.8 million) and the NBC Sunday night game (Cowboys-Jets, 25.8 million) -- to rank as the three most-watched sporting events since Super Bowl XLV. These three telecasts rank among the seven most-watched shows among all television programs since Super Bowl Sunday including awards shows, such as the Academy Awards, and season finales.
 
In addition, Kickoff Weekend games averaged 19.0 million viewers -- which coupled with last year's average of 19.5 million marks the first time in a quarter century that NFL opening-weekend games averaged at least 19 million viewers in consecutive seasons (1986-1987).
 
Below are some additional records and highlights from Kickoff Weekend.
 
NATIONAL

NBC's Sunday Night Football opener is the most-watched SNF game ever (Cowboys-Jets, 25.8 million viewers). NBC's two games averaged 26.5 million viewers, marking the highest Thursday-Sunday primetime average for NBC since the current Kickoff Weekend schedule was implemented in 2002. With Cowboys-Jets marking the first meeting in five years between starting quarterbacks of Hispanic heritage, NBC drew an SNF record 2.74 million Hispanic viewers.
 
LOCAL

NFL games ranked first in all 30 NFL markets for the third consecutive Kickoff Weekend. NFL games also topped the ratings in 53 of Nielsen's 56 metered markets -- up from 48 of 56 metered markets in 2010.
 
Three teams delivered record-setting ratings for season-openers in their home markets led by Super Bowl XLV champion Green Bay (53.1 rating) followed by New England (33.9) and the New York Jets (19.7).
 
Five clubs (Denver, Green Bay, Miami, N.Y. Jets, and Oakland) posted local ratings increases of more than 20 percent for Week 1.
 
DIGITAL

NFL digital media properties, including NFL Mobile only from Verizon, had its best opening weekend ever with 46 percent more people visiting than last year.
 
On Sunday, fans watched 75 percent more video compared to Kickoff Sunday in 2010.
 
Fans spent 48 percent more time on NFL digital media properties than last year.
 
Visits to the expanded array of NFL mobile offerings were up nearly 500 percent from 2010.

I don't think he's alone. America loves football. There is nothing to compete with the NFL/Super Bowl so the numbers are misleading IMO.

Well I still like NFL a lot, but I must admit I liked the NFL of even 5 years ago more. It seems like they're getting a little too 'cute' with some stuff. I liked when a catch was a catch and I also like balanced teams. I liked days when you would have workhorse backs and great defenses. It's not there aren't solid defenses and good running games now and there always was pass happy teams, but it just seems like building a pass happy team is so vanilla now. Tackling and just good defensive fundamentals have gone downhill too. I think someone mentioned getting the head around for defending passes. I used to love seeing guys catching interceptions in stride.

Just because the mass numbers of people still tune into the NFL and watch the NFL, just because more and more women love to buy pink jerseys with Tom Brady's name on the back doesn't mean that the true long time fans I grew up watching football with- cheering for defense and the running game still recognize the game.. , you guys writting about how I should watch another sport should realize- I AM watching another sport than the one I started watchng back in the early eighties.

The best businesses are dynamic(look up the definition).  You must change and evolve to stay relevant. People fear change but change is good.

Part of life bud. All things including sports evolve. If they never changed they'd still be playing in leather helmets out there.
