As a New York Giants football fan, last Sunday night was rough for me. One of the most difficult parts of that frustrating and tough loss to the rival Dallas Cowboys, was two terrible calls by the officials. On Thursday, the NFL told the team that they did make mistakes in important calls in the game. This only adds to the frustration of a very imperfect game.
I’m an NFL fan. Ever since I was little, I went to multiple Giants games every season. The excitement of football, the strategy (or lack thereof), the drama (or lack thereof), the sight of athletic talent (or lack thereof) hooked me.
I don’t go anymore because the team priced out its fans by building the most expensive stadium ever made. I still love football and follow it closely. I even bet on it sometimes. And I ran my office’s first ever suicide pool last year and had a perfect season, something I have to brag about because it was awesome.
But I don’t play fantasy football.
The 2013 NFL season has been interesting and contained one fewer player suicide than last year, so far. Below is a list ranking every football team in order from which team’s fans are talking s**t down to which fans feel like they are eating s**t.
Manti Te’o and Lance Armstrong are all over the news for their scandals. Though different (one talks to Katie Couric, the other to Oprah), each of these extraordinary athletes stooped to low levels in order to make their story a heroic tale of overcoming adversity.
It’s been rough to be a part of the NFL over the past two weeks. Three people who work for professional football teams have lost their lives; two players and a grounds crew member. Teams who have lost members of their organization the day before a game, however, are 3-0 this season.
In an effort to pollute every network with politics, in case you happened to somehow miss the Presidential campaign that has been going on for the past two years, the U.S. Presidential candidates appeared on ESPN at halftime of last night’s Monday Night Football game to not answer questions and mention football.
The NFL is also a fashion show where top prospects show off proper courtroom attire that will likely be shown to a judge sometime in the near future.
