    Assuming that is for the OP ........ did not watch a single NFL game 18-19 season, watched parts of two in 19-20 season, although I realize I lack the will and tenacity to match yours ...... so I will succumb to the temptation of watching part of one game that will have two NFL legends competing against each other in which could easily be the last season for either or both.

    Actually I posted the OP as a topic that may be of interest, not to be a topic of scorn. ....... But if it allows some to bolster their own self images, then I guess it offers a dual service to this forum.

    I can legally defend myself against bad guys, but there is no legal defense against bad guys with badges.
    I do not kill animals, nor do I pay other people to kill them for me.

    Watching the Apalachicola State game yesterday, it appears they 'piped in' crowd noise. The seats were empty.

    I haven't watched NFL since the whole kneeling thing started, I refuse. I gave up nascar when Mark Martin retired, don't miss it at all. MLB and NBA have been added to my list of things I can do without now. I do miss baseball but I never watched an entire game so not all that hard. I miss ESPN but they started all the political crap also.

    I am completely through with pro sports. My boss, who was one of the biggest sports guys I know, is also done. There are about a thousand better things to do with my time and money that don't support a bunch of overpaid thugs who suddenly think they're enlightened.

    Brady did not have a good Tampa Bay debut. As a Patriots fan, you'll forgive me if that gave me a chuckle or two yesterday.

    I stopped NFL during the Rams Ferguson riot support. Long time Ram and Cowboys fan. Burned all NFL stuff years ago.
    The only pro sports we watch is pro motorcycle road racing.

    I have given up on the NFL completely, just to much nonsense.

    Although not an NFL fan at all, I will still watch Patrick Mahomes, played for TTU and lived 3 blocks from me while attending TTU.

    Not sure who else does (if any) it, but Brady and Brees are perhaps the only two pro QB's who are allowed to RUN the offense if they choose. Their records, longevity, and stats earn them that.

    And for a topic of 'not really much interest to most', it seems to have drawn more replies than 'most'. ...... I also didn't realize I was 'making an excuse' for watching (laughable), I just admitted that I was going to watch. ........ How many here did also but claim otherwise? Maybe none, maybe all.

    Be all you can be 'online', eh? ........ All for naught anyway, it was not televised in my area.
