Default NFL Football: 11 minutes of action per game

This is interesting. The Wall Street Journal watched a bunch of football games and recorded the amount of actual time the ball is in play on the field. Result: 11 minutes total (even though each game is about 3 hours long).

"There's very little actual football in a football game."

Here's the article.

Wow...

If you could get just the action plus maybe 10 secs on either side of each play you could watch a game in under 1/2 hour

don't think they'd make too much money at it like that though...

i watch games like that with TiVO - I have my remote setup with a FF button that jumps forward 30seconds. So if i hit that right after the tackle then it puts me about 2 seconds before the next snap. do that and jump the commercials, i can get through a game in 30 mins easy. love it!

I did this for the jets/indy game. We were out skiing and came back. My buddy has dish and some other onkyo unit that had a couple ff buttons. One was 30 sec and I timed the 4th quarter using it. we were done in 12-13 min.

while you see the plays you kinda loose touch with the momentum and feel of the game.
