Do you get more interested in NFL football when the post season starts?
I think football is the only sport that doesn't get a huge spike in interest when the playoffs start. A lot of people follow football regularly because it is an easy sport to follow since there is only 16 games. I have a lot of friends who only become interested in the NBA, MLB or NHL once the playoffs start because it's big news.
Yeah, i'd have to agree with chirth. I wouldn't really know though myself. I stay pretty interested in it all year round. I do get into still even if my team doesn't make it though, which being a Panthers fan, it's been awhile. Hopefully wont be much longer.
I think football may be more popular right before the season starts, the unknown of a new season, fresh faces, everyone believes this could be the year their team steps up. Even the NFL draft is becoming huge but playoffs do bring out more football parties building up to the superbowl.
American football is basically two bunches of huge men dressed in goofy suits, beating each other badly over a misshapen brown and white object called a "ball" for lack of a better term. After all, the English word "ball" derives from the Greek infinitive "ballo," which means "I throw." Granted, the Quarterback throws the ball to a receiver on the opposite side of the field in touchdown scoring attempts.
The attempts the players make at heroics to get the ball down field and score to win the game are legendary. Many players and coaches have earned spots in the National Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH because of their sportsmanship on the field and their leadership off the field. Players get too old to play, as other men do, and the wear and tear on their bodies resulting from the injuries they receive from tackling hits takes its toll, and the sport of American football is passed to newer generations of adrenaline-charged younger men who strive to break the records their predecessors established. Therefore all becomes meaningless.
Perhaps I might be more interested in NFL football in the post-season had it not been for the bloated salaries most athletes, including NFL players, receive from team owners' negotiations to craft the best teams for whom they could pay. Instead, I would rather watch "Pop Warner" league football played by boys whom have no stake in disgustingly high salaries and whose parents earn an average wage. That alone makes real football, for sport, and not for bets or negotiations or playoffs or football pools, but for fun..

Believe it or not, I kind of like watching football with my husband. I make comments just as much as he does. We prefer the college games to the pro league . But, I hope the Super Bowl is a good one this year.
I am an avid football fan. I love the entire NFL season from pre-season games all the way through the Super Bowl! I do know a lot of my friends are only interested in the playoffs however. It is fun watching the games and teasing some of my friends on Facebook, depending on what team they are rooting for. I may be female, but I love watching professional sports.

The NBA lockout is getting very serious. They just canceled 43 pre-season games and training camps will be delayed. There does not seem to be any progress or sense of urgency to salvage the season, yet. Fans of course have the NCAA,but this could really do some long term damage to...
