You know why I like the game, and I think others watch it too? Because it’s fun! Whether people want to admit it or not, the game is fun.
Yes, I know, I know, no defense is played in the game. Heck, the lowest scoring game in the 2000s was a 23-17 score, so clearly the stats bare that out. Last season’s game was 59-41. They modify the rules to allow more offense than defense, we all know that.
I say, so what?
You can’t go into that game, expecting a regular season football game to be played. It isn’t played that way, and if you go looking for one, you will be disappointed. You have to watch the game, understanding you are watching an exhibition. Specifically, an offensive exhibition. The ratings show that this is what people come to see, so you have to go into it looking at it from that perspective. And when you look at it that way, that once a year, you are seeing the best offensive football players in the world show off their skills, in the grand scheme of things, what’s wrong with that?
