Thursday Night Football is Hot Garbage


I saw some tweets tonight about Christian Ponder being hot garbage.

He may not be a very good quarterback, but the real hot garbage is this Thursday night football. Yet another event gone horribly wrong during the Goodell Era. Owners, anxious to suck down more TV money went along with Goodell’s plan to enhance revenue streams. The owners, most of them clueless about how football works, didn’t realize the least viewable, most unwatchable of their games would be placed on Thursday night.

Now it’s readily apparent Thursday night is going to be the least competitive of the weekend. Tonight’s game started 42-0, Green Bay; it’s now 42-7 in the early 4th. Last week, the Giants beat Washington, 45-14. Two weeks ago, Atlanta led Tampa Bay, 56-0 at the end of the third quarter. Not one of the games have been closer than 20 points!

Thursday Night football is an embarrassment to the teams and to the league.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
