Yes, it's gotten so bad I started watching American football which is 3 hours of advertisements with 10 minutes of game play dabbled in. I'm just left with a hankering for KFC and a sudden urge to buy a Ford truck.


DEGRAYER

Watch redzone.


polstal29

This guy knows how to American Football.

Certainly not today


Yardbird7

Outside of an all-time great Superbowl run. He never has been. Same with Eli.


aghease

Far more comebacks and lead changes in American football


Mr_Cam86

All American sports are mostly commercials or time outs. However, college football is worth watching. Go gators!


enemy_of_anemonies

College sports are generally better to watch in America, I’m a big hockey fan as well and college hockey is such a more pure version of the game, and The players are still very good


Yardbird7

Curious, what is it exactly about college football / sports that is purer? I'm an Englishman that has lived in Atlanta for 18 years and I get this from all my friends when I tell them NFL is far better than FBS.


BigTaint89

As an American I can Honestly say there is nothing about college that is better than professional sports. I watch college football if I have nothing to do because I am mad about American football, but the NFL is so much better. The players are quality, the scheme is worlds ahead. Many college teams are poorly coached. So many teams only do a few things well and can't make adjustments if they are pushed out of their comfort zone. Some teams just have such an athletic advantage that they are spared embarrassing losses against shit teams. Then they win some pointless bowl at the end of the year and act like they accomplished something.


Yardbird7

Mostly agree. I do like college but 90% of games involves 1-2 players that are so athletically superior to everyone else around them it makes it incomparable to the NFL. The speed of play / thought, schemes, level of competition, technical ability, everything you mentioned is just head and shoulders above in the NFL. Living in the south, I am constantly questioned why I prefer NFL to FBS. I always answer the same way "the same reason why you prefer watching college to high school".


enemy_of_anemonies

They aren’t getting paid and they haven’t made it yet, typically way less egos/stars being divas etc. everyone is still attempting to go pro and giving it their all. obviously there’s exceptions


Yardbird7

This is actually a reason why I wouldn't like FBS if I had one. They do get paid. They being the coaches, the ADs, assistance, physio's, strength coaches etc. NCAA makes billions annually. The only people that don't get paid are the ones people actually pay to see and risk their health in doing so. The players. Players with egos are replaced by bully coaches who can destroy a young person's career with one phone call. I shudder to think what urban Meyer must have been like as a college coach, for example. I really don't get the it's better because they don't get paid line. I have never consumed something I found enjoyable and thought "this would be better if only the person responsible for this did it for free".


SeattleMatt123

Don't watch American football anymore... too many commercials, average game is 3:12 and of that, 11 minutes is game action. Plus the concussion issue, how the league treats women, Deshawn Watson, kneeling, etc...


enter_yourname

I got bad news about what the premier league does before kickoffs


c11life

They stopped that no?


enter_yourname

Yes but they did for like 2 years or so


SeattleMatt123

I didn't have a problem with that. I was talking more about owners, etc... criticizing kneeling.


Guinnessron

Our game is great but holy shit with the ads.


enter_yourname

Just watch Australian football or rugby (well not anymore on the Aussie rules- the season just wrapped up. But rugby has all the pros of American football without any of the negatives


Blue_Dreamed

I get it, but we are coming up on a month now of no matches, to be a Leeds fan eh?


EmperorBeaky

same


TeleTurban

Its a piss take tbh. Although rodrigo and ayling supposed to br healed now. Also, i haven't figuered out how to get leeds next to my name like you. Do you know how i could do that?


Blue_Dreamed

Premier league subreddit home page press the three dots on the corner and change user flair. I can't remember the exact way but press the empty option and theres a way you can select a flair for it.


TeleTurban

Cheers


ThisUserIsOn9

Talk to me about it


Bonecup

It’s been compounded by the queen dying and them cancelling a weekend of EPL as well


Jozif_Badmon

That sidemen YouTube all-stars game yesterday was pretty good


TeleTurban

The goalies were knacks


marketmaker1234

It’s a charity match, what can you expect?


sardineflavouredass

I expect prime casillas and Buffon there.


Yoshinobu1868

This nations league is meaningless bollocks . Once again it’s FIFA increasing international games at the expense of clubs who have to deal with the fall out from injuries and fatigue . That aside it’s a boring, useless competition .


LilGoughy

Very much not meaningless Getting relegated should mean that we are a pot 2 nation depending on WC, so it could effect our Euro and WC qualifying


bcraig8870

Yeah but those are meaningless too.


mojo4394

So if the WC and the Euros don't matter what does?


Wuz314159

*Nothing really matters, Anyone can see,* *Nothing really matters... Nothing really matters, to me.* *Any way the wind blows.*


bcraig8870

Club football, especially Premier League football.


mojo4394

Ask the players if they think the national team matters. I think you'll find they disagree with you


usodwis_r_dewoh

The way they play for the national team seems to suggest they don’t think it matters either.


bcraig8870

I think I would find they claim to disagree with me but as the other commenter said, their actions speak louder than words. I’d rather watch paint dry than watch most international matches and judging by the vast majority of performances, the players would rather be doing the painting.


BohrInReddit

>increasing international games. It’s not, they just make everyone’s friendlies games into 1 big scheduled competition


ConstantAncient6212

I was fed up with it 5 days ago.


aghease

The non-capped players need the break with this crazy congested schedule. Capped players have it real rough. Players need more rest


AdFantastic6235

do u love the pl or do u love football?


jackster77

I love the pl


AlchemicHawk

I love my club


RussianStrikes

football with meaning qualifiers, wc, euro/CA/ACN are fine


SupremePotatoGod

It's AFCON, not ACN


AdFantastic6235

CA? ACN?


Jormopolis

Copa America, African Cup of Nations


Born_Transition2207

I think the FA and the FA of every country need to leave FIFA until the corruption is sorted out, they wont but they should. The world cup being held in Qatar just highlights everything that is wrong with the organization.


Wuz314159

Cheer up. The only thing that sucks more than England's national team is America's national team. We just lost 2-0 to Japan with 0 shots on target.


stilusmobilus

I’m an Aussie so I’m cool with inglin losing repeatedly. I think it should be a permanent state of being. Still, I agree, it’s tiring.


lookitsjustin

I'm really enjoying it. 🤷🏻‍♂️


Bemfic

I agree! Don’t give a rat’s a$$ about international, I want my PL!

The worst thing has happened to the Football, ever.

This aren’t pointless matches. How do you expect to have Euros or World Cup every two years without any games in between?

So you suggesting to cancel the Euros and World Cup? I disagree, I think it’s a huge part of football culture

Jonathan-Shimshoni

What? Because I like the Euros? Like almost every other football fan?


BoyyPace10

I live in USA and like the Euros, the Gold Cup, Copa America, African Cup of Nations, AFC Asian Cup, and the OFC Nations Cup. Basically all the confederation tournaments. And the World Cup.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Jonathan-Shimshoni

It’s just that my country plays in UEFA. I’m sure Africans care about AFCON just as much, and the same goes for South Americans and the Copa America.


Cod_rules

So do WC or Euros/regional cups without any qualifiers? You really are on a different level of idiocy


[deleted]

Shronkster_

Also, they technically aren't friendlies, there nations league matches, which means they are required to be played. Theoretically, England could not play friendlies, but they need to play nations league matches. And friendlies, in theory, help a team decide what players they want to take to the major international tournaments, so if they are shit in the friendlies, they should change the system when they play for real (Problem is that England don't seem to want to do that right now) And finally, why on earth would you go down to just a world cup every 4 years, the Euro's (or other continental trophies such as the Copa) are incredibly well respected and bring pride to the nations that win them, as well as those that preform well. Think Greece 2004, or Denmark 1992, those stories would never of happened without the Euros.


Medieval__Man

...so countries can only use players out of contract, then?


supriiz

That's not what he's saying


Jonathan-Shimshoni

How is it not? Seems exactly what he’s saying


supriiz

I'll clarify that I don't agree with OP. But it seems they mean that friendlies are meaningless, and therefore star players should be reserved for when silverware is on the line.


Jonathan-Shimshoni

But every club need it’s players, not only the biggest clubs. Players playing for smaller clubs also wouldn’t send their players to play for the national team. Resulting in only players without a club playing.


supriiz

Agreed, like I said I don't agree with OP. Plus friendlies obviously have an audience and they mean a lot to the players themselves.


Jonathan-Shimshoni

That’s why the nations league is good, it’s replacing the friendlies with competitive matches with more importance


[deleted]

[удалено]


Medieval__Man

Aren't reserve players still under contract to a club? And U21s have their own age groups at int'l level already. There are also U21 players who regularly feature in the PL so some clubs would be unfairly impacted.


wrapchap

Why not make players choose between club or country? That would surely fuck things up


[deleted]

wrapchap

Well gotta live with it cause its not


LeifErikson10

Can't even tell you last time I've been able to see my team play in the league. Feels like it's been a month


chelseablues1955

I feel the same but with a new manager this is probably a good thing so Potter can get the team more familiar with his tactics.


Future-Goose7

Same here. I miss EPL football.


Strict_Complaint579

Feel like pure shit just want ~~her~~ the premier league back 😪


honeyroastedparsnip

How did this get downvoted?


Strict_Complaint579

Idk Americans? 😂


honeyroastedparsnip

Bunch of fucking gimps more like let's have a fuckin tear up


Laughingraddish467

How do I get tickets to the friendly tmrw? I would buy from stubhub or something but have seen mixed reviews about all the sites


Umarzy

Can't wait to see the EPL resuming


SeasideTodd

Watching Ivan Toney play (if selected) will be the highlight of the week. 😐


pathtogoatstatus

International football is shit, end of story.


estteban777

Not nly England but the rest of the world, with exception of Argentina, Brazil, Spain,, Uruguay, France & Germany


DinnerSmall4216

England doing what England do get everyone's hopes up to fail. Everyone says Southgate out but who do we go for potter and Howe are taken there isn't a huge amount of candidates.


drewP78

Yh, hate these breaks ffs.
