I just watched the first NFL game of the year. I am really getting to feel that I am being force-fed commercials. I really didn't enjoy watching the game. So many interruptions.
It seems to get worse every year. How much is too much?
What's your opinion?
You want non-stop action. Go to the game. But, please don't complain about TV, which in itself is one of the most destructive luxury items ever invented.
Cagsil, Who said anything about non stop action? I am just tired of so many interruptions, that seem to last longer and longer.
I had guests over to watch the game. They also commented on the
I have gone to the games. Even then, there are commercial delays
and the walls of the stadiums are flush with flashing commercials
and signs everywhere.
It is a fact that the number of commercials is increasing every year.
couple that with the networks flashing commercials on the screen while
your favorite programs are running.
My question was, How many are too many?
At the rate of increase, how long before making enough money to cover
expenses will require 4 or 5 hours of commercials to air ball games, which will require even more commercial delays at the game itself.
Is the cost of airing programs becoming so expensive that it will soon
price itself out of business?
The cost of going to a game is not affordable for the majority of the people, nor is there room for the majority. Most stadiums hold approximately 50,000 to 60,000 people.
What's next? Get the public to finance stadiums that hold a million people?
Many cannot afford the expense of attending a game in person. Many are
viewers that are handicapped and their only option to watching a pro game is television.
TV is not destructive in and of itself. It is greed and ulterior motives in programming and commercials that make it destructive.

Will having too many comments posted on a hub be a cause for concern? Could too many comments make a hub less google worthy? I have one hub with over 200 and that seems excessive.
