View Full Version : I HATE that this game starts so late.

4:00 games are bad enough. Sunday and Monday night games are worse. But most regular season games you have your other weekend activities (chores, errands, etc.) to take up the slack. I can't even imagine how it is for the players. For the ones who were able to sleep at all last night, they've probably been up since 6:00 this morning.

Today, all I'm doing is waiting for the game to start. Even if I'm doing something else, all I'm really doing is waiting.

I have watched every single Super Bowl, with the possible exception of Super Bowl I (which I don't remember). There was a time when the game started at 3 or 4 but I don't remember how long ago that was; probably back in the '70s.

Every year, the game starts later and later. Used to be 6PM. Then it was 6:23 (meaning 6:35). Now, they say it's 6:30, which means about 6:45, after the National Anthem.

Again, it has to be the worst on the players.

I am glad it is finally going to start. LOL Like you I have waited and waited just like everyone else. Go Giants.

Don't forget it is a national audience. A 3 PM EST start would be 12 noon on the west coast. Not exactly a good time for one of the biggest games.

2 week wait is way to long for the game. How many ways can you beat a dead horse?
