I think the most interesting commentary comes from Kurt Warner on the NFL channel and also the Playbook crew. Frankly the only way to save the CBS and Fox shows is to focus more on what GM types have to say, perhaps a sports reporter or two on a rotating basis and maybe a draft guru, someone to expose those that are failing and highlighting those succeeding and fool around with the rumor mill more.
In both shows nobody, and I mean nobody, manages to make me laugh. The attempts to be funny, while desired, falls hopelessly flat.
there's a lot of fluff and you'd think that these networks would figure out that the audience isnt as stupid as they think it is. Either way, the NFLN is catering to minorities and women so they are gonna be all about that.
I think women really are the main audience the NFL wants to cater too. It's really weird.
