I HATE Sunday night football.

Why? because it never ends. I want to watch "60 Minutes) and this stupid game is still on 30 minutes after the normal start of the show.

3. Me too, but football with infinite stop clocks and time outs is the worst.

8. Must be lack of media coverage of the Cardinals

Arizona is more exciting too watch than most seasons. Deandre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, Larry Fitzgerald, and Andy Isabella are fun to watch.

I'm sure you think Seattle is exciting to watch as they get their much deserved respect from the National media but Cardinals games don't air in a lot of markets unless they're nationally televised like tonight.

6. I don't have the same conflicts other wiise.

Personally it wouldn't bother me if all professional and college sports were consigned to ESPN channels. Then the wouldn't do away with what I want to watch.

11. If all sports were on ESPN,

then AT&T would have all my money, instead of Joe Biden.

Meanwhile, that would free up space on the other channels for more reruns of Home Improvement, Walker, Texas Ranger, and more WWF events.

5. I don't have to watch 60 min live, but the Seahawks...

... Oh yeah, I gots to watch that game to the last minute. So many of their games have been decided in the final minute this season.

I can tape 60 minutes, or watch the highlights on Lincoln Project.

10. The downside is Al Michaels

Hes a rightwing Seahawk hating asshole. Ill have my radio on listening to Steve Raible.

Id take football over the phony fucks on 60 minutes any day or night.

14. On purpose, so they can get to an off schedule when you watch 60 minutes

When 60 minutes ends at 8:40 what can people watch but another CBS show? At least in the old days but they still think that.

12. I love politics...

I hate politics in my sports. Sports were my escape. Nowadays, sports don't occupy my time ,except racing. But, yes, it screws up 60 Minutes! The CBS app on Roku has helped.

16. I don't think there is much politics in the game

All there is vote and end racism but I don't think being against racism is a political position I consider it more of a moral position.

After 9-11 there was a lot more politics and jingoism. You can't separate the two especially when the NFL lobbies local governments for subsidies.

15. What I especially hate is when the game has already run long...

...the game ends, and they still blab ON AND ON with the f*cking inane "post game wrap-up".

If they're going to make us wait for the damned game to end, then the second the clock reaches 00:00, show the final score for five seconds with a five-second voice-over of who won the game... AND THAT'S IT! OUTTA THERE! GAME OVER!

I'll catch 60 Minutes on the rebound; it will be posted all over the place.

I understand it's a Fox Sports production, but I have to download a pirate signal because I no longer receive the station's signal.
