>get 12-16 billionaires >have them organize a capless Spring football league with minimal tampering rules (can't contact anyone signed to another team, that's about it) >put teams in markets without NFL teams (Portland, Oklahoma City, St. Louis, San Antonio, San Diego, Salt Lake City, somewhere in the bum fuck Deep South, etc.) >Tell one of the owners to sign Derrick Henry for a rookie contract the NFL can't compete with because of its CBA
NFL could do it, just have less commercials and less penalties. The delays in the game are what make the NFL boring. Don't even get me started on all the stops in play to review plays that take one look to decipher (but end up being a 2-3 minute commercial break).
>>64858785 College football is watered down garbage made for frat boys, Maddenbabbies, cousinfuckers, and homosexuals. The offensive schemes are dull and simplistic, yet they still score a bajillion points because no one plays defense. In any given year there are only ~5 teams worth half a shit. It's designed for the absolute dregs of society, and no one else.
Amateur handegg succeeds partially because of lots of fast, free flowing gimmicky offenses and blitzing to cover for the lack of size, polish and quantity of skillful, quality players across teams. Remember the wildcat and option revolutions? Its use declined because NFL defenses figured it out. NFL is just more geared toward plodding play as is.
>>64860115 The point is that you want to see a league dominated by 3-4 in perpetuity, I'm just wondering which one of them you would start rooting for when the other 28 teams inevitably lost all of their fans
>>64862717 Partly because a lot of the smaller market teams complained about the bigger teams buying the better players. They couldn't compete so they had to figure out a way to handicap the teams in larger markets.
>>64862785 Isn't that what makes it competitive? Why the fuck would you enter a poker game with 1000 dollars if some faggots with 1 million can sit at the table? If you can't win on a level playing field you're shit and relying on handicaps.
>>64862864 That's the idea. The interesting thing is that there seems to be more parity in MLB than either the NFL or NBA. In MLB, going the route of the Yankees or Dodgers doesn't usually work. Teams like the Royals and Giants win because they know how to draft and build a good farm system. Hell, the crappy Marlins have won two WS titles. Meanwhile in the NBA and NFL, you pretty much have the same teams in contention for the the title.
>>64860136 This, college is shit and defense is nowhere to be found. The offense are usually memes and their strategy and schemes are no where near being the same depth as their counterparts in the NFL. College is just too boring and games always seem to be high scoring. I'll take a low scoring game were both teams don't break 20 over one were they score 40+ points and all 3 phases show up to play not just the offense. The other problem with College ball is how significantly unbalanced the teams are.
Why can't we just enjoy the games. CFB can be very exciting at times and it can also be very boring. The same is true of the NFL. It's just a damn game. If you don't like watching the NFL or CFB then don't, no one is forcing you to.
>>64859774 Last time the league made it easier to sign great players it led to the stupidest NFC domination ever
Cowboys haven't gotten close to a SuperBowl because they can't buy players anymore
Now it takes skills , competence and good coaches to lead a team to a SB which is why out of the teams that made it to the owl in the 90s Only 49ers , Broncos , GB , Pats, and some other team I believe I don't remember have made it to the superbowl since
Another thing is I never got the "college sports is more exciting meme" why turn the sport into apehoop? Big numbers = exciting Now?
>>64863301 Jerry Jones isn't a humble man. He hated how much attention JJ was getting for the Cowboys' success. It probably also had to do with the fact that JJ was a control freak like Parcells. Jerry didn't like this so he fired him and hired a more agreeable coach in Barry Switzer. Just to reinforce that point, we have to remember that as soon as Jerry bought the Cowboys he fired the GM and even the legendary coach Tom Landry. He did that largely because he wanted to be in charge and run things his way. The problem again is that Jerry doesn't really care what anyone thinks and will do whatever he wants despite what his team actually needs. It's ironic because once JJ left,the Cowboys talent grew tired, and some of them even left to play for the 49ers because the owner was a lot nicer to the players. I can only imagine how many Super Bowls those Cowboys would have won if Jerry hadn't fired JJ.
>>64859774 >>64859774 SB winners from 1981-1995 >49ers (5) >Redskins (3) >Raiders (the only AFC win over NFC. it was against the redskins) >Bears >Giants (3) >Cowboys (3) compare that to the Brady era 2001-now >Patriots (4) >Bucs >Steelers (2) >Colts >Giants(2 over NE) >Saints >Packers (over Steelers) >Ravens >Seahawks Despite that Pats dominance and the ever present Steelers and Packers it is still more varied than years past or the NBA/NCAA which has had LeBron and Bama at the top for 6 years.
>>64863222 Yes, High scoring=exciting, Defensive games=bad. That is why the NFL cracks down on Defense, to spin the scoreboard and bring in viewers. The only thing that stopped the Arena League from success is being filled with nobodies and clearly looking like a feeder league.
>>64863301 Free agency killed that team. Because they had to pay Emmit they lost their number #2 WR Alvan Harper. and so on down the line. >>64863350 Landry was 3-13 in the season before Jerry took over. 1-15 in the season immediately after. Jerry Jones confirmed idiot.
>>64862984 The difference between college and the NFL. The Browns CAN beat the Patriots if they played ten times whereas Arkon (not even the worst Div 1 team) would struggle to even score in all 10 games.
>>64862665 >Anyone can win Unless the pollsters don't like you that is, or you don't get the benefit of the doubt like the SEC currently >>64863043 Anon, you haven't been paying attention, everything is a meme now. >>64863123 Because College purists are mad they are not as popular and NFL fans feel threatened by their older but less successful brother
unrelated but because of the 50 years of pre-NFL stat padding Yale and Princeton still hold the most titles with Bama a distant 3rd
People tend to call an NFL game boring, in part because they want to see 40-38 scoreboards. The reality is that when you try to implement that fast paced, explosive Offense in the NFL it doesn't work, Coaches and players are way too experimented for that kind of nonsense. Of course people think the NFL is boring. Not every game is gonna be a shootout with a lot of points. Also the rules are different, and that's a problem because rookies need to adapt fast. I prefer the NFL all day every day. Salute!
>actually considering college sports worthwhile Ironic that those with the theoretically highest education in the US are apparentely also its biggest retards. No wonder their country isn't going anywhere anymore.
Seriously this. I can't stand the talking heads from every network. If there isn't an actual game being played I'm on another channel or away from the TV. Not sure how people watch all the pre-game crap.
>>64865074 This >>64865096 For all the euro banter of >no Sport Culture >Teams are too spread out >Why support a team that will leave you They ignore the one facet of American sports that is akin to their own. But then again I forget, American's are not allowed to have culture because Europe said so.
>>64865437 it is to give the shit teams a chance. If we just gave the best players to the best team that just turns a NFL team like recent New England into Bama. While making the rest of the league the MAC
>>64865504 >>64865499 Baiting this hard. >>64865519 Oh look OSU has been good for 50 years and is good again, I am shocked. >>64865531 Because the games didn't mean anything because 1 team was really good while the other was middle of the road. add to it the playoff was pretty much set excluding the B1G.
>>64862979 And college being shitty like this is leading to a worse product for the nfl. Now the option is prevalent because you can score a ton of points on undisciplined kids with it rather then teaching good football.
They keep sending up these glorified running backs that haven't thrown a solid pass in their life and they continue to suck even with the easy mode modern nfl rules.
>>64865661 first day on /sp/ anon? here is what threads we we have >USA vs The World >the thing I like is the best and you're wrong for liking anything else >bait with the team/athlete of your choice >game threads which are really just shitposting about the game in real-time contained to a thread. >Spam threads after an event to celebrate/rub it in >things used to be better >forced meme of the month.
>>64865837 Checks McCarron's Bama stats he threw even less. They both played almost a full NFL season with Bama here is where McCarron's Bama stats rank him in 2014 23rd Between Kyle Orton and Teddy Bridgewater. Coker's 2015 2erd between Tyrod Taylor and Bridgewater. >>64865895 He was the Heisman winner because they kept feeding him. Also if you look at Alex Smith living off the running game isn't a bad thing.
But you are missing my point. pro style QBs don't go to big schools to throw, they go to hand off. They go to small schools to throw.
>>64866001 Says the league that has Brady winning with jobbers and how many titles does AP have? How about Dickerson? Barry Sanders? I think you have to go back to Emmit Smith for a team that used the run to win.
>>64859774 >How playoff games have the Patriots, Steelers, and Packers been to over the last 5-10 seasons? Static divisions, where certain teams continue to be shit year-in year-out. Periodical realignment could help mix things up.
NFL is a pathetic snoozefest. Been that way for years now. Way too much refball and too many goddamn commercials. Goodell ruined the league years ago. It's target demographic is literally NASCAR tier now and the stadiums are full of drunken, obese, inbred trash.
College ball will always be the patrician's preferred blend.
>>64866001 starting QBs this season Carson Palmer USC-RB Reggie Bush Matt Ryan Boston College Small school Joe Flacco Delaware Small School Tyrod Taylor Virginia Tech running qb Cam Netwon Auburn Running QB Jay Cutler Vanderbilt loser SEC school Andy Dalton TCU played for them when they were an un-respected independent Johnny football A&M Running QB Tony Romo Eastern Illinois Small School Brock Os Arizona State Peyton Tennessee Brady Michigan couldn’t keep the starting job (also a running team) Matt Stafford Georgia spread Blake Bortles UCF Small School Alex Smith Utah (an option team) Drew Brees Purdue loser B1G school Kirk Cousins Michigan State Sam Bradford Oklahoma (A running team) Blane Gabbert Missouri spread Derek Carr Fresno State Loser school Phillip Rivers NC State Small School Ben Roethlisberger Miami(OH) Small School Russel Wilson Wisconsin Running QB on a Running team Ryan Tannehill A&M Teddy Bridgewater Louisville Jameis Winston Florida state running QB Marcus Mariota Hawaii Bryan Hoyer Michigan State Eli Manning Ole miss spread Andrew Luck Stanford Ryan Fitzpatrick Harvard
How many good qb's went to a big title game playing school? 3?
>>64865768 that'd be great. players would actually put effort and be heartbroken about a loss more than the fans. too bad it's impossible with all the union stuff in the way. >mfw the 2008 lions wouldn't have gotten paid once
Let's see. Peyton won a national title. Brady beat Alabama in the orange bowl. Winston won a heisman and a national title. Same with Cam Newton. Manziel won a heisman. Stafford and knowshon were the best Georgia team of the last 20 years. Sam Bradford won a heisman.
Not to mention conference championships and all that other shit won by those guys.
>>64866710 >lists 3 running QBs Peyton I give you Brady couldn't beat out Drew Henson and sat behind Brian griese PRO style.QB's GENERALLY go to lesser known schools or are handcuffed to a RB they hand off to at bigger ones. Because they can't drop back 40 times like the pros because their line can't pass block and they have maybe 1 half decent receiver.
The only game I've ever left early was a replacement ref game. Week 2 Den @ ATL. It was almost 11 PM by halftime and Atlanta had the game wrapped up. I said fuck this, I'm not cruising through Vine City at 1 AM.
>>64867321 Looking over it even further the this weekend Panthers Seahawks game should make >>64866852 cream yourself in excitement as the Panthers run the most and only threw 13 more passes than Seattle all season.
