    No way they cut commercial time, but they could only stop the game clock with a team timeout. And rules are way too complicated, often creating referee confusion and delays. Shortening the play clock would help too, as well as eliminating extra points entirely.

    I'm sorry but I'd sit there for 4 + hours as long as I get to see the Titans winning.

    The thing about commercials is that nobody watches them. I have the Sunday NFL Ticket and when the Titans go on commercial. What do I do?

    Tick tick tick.

    Turn it to another game. So most people don't even watch the commercials these days. I'm sure Roger will find a way to eliminate that pretty soon.

    They actually seem to plan for that, more times than not when I change the channel during a break the other game is also on a break..

    Anyone remember a few years ago when they moved the kickoff spot to where its a guaranteed touchback? Yeah, each kickoff is an opportunity for more commercials

    Kickoffs are totally worthless. Almost no chance of anyone ever getting a decent return.

    Sounds like a conspiracy to be honest. I usually have 3 games on deck on what I have in order. It's the Titans 1st, then I try to watch the Falcons game 2nd, and then the game of the week or any game relevant to the Titans playoff push and it baffles me when all 3 games are in commercial. I've complained in the Shoutbox about it numerous times.

    I mean it's obvious as so many have touched on it.

    There's no reason to cut from the previews to the game where they show a qb warming up -commercial -, then keys to the game, kick off - commercial - then a possible 3 and out - commercial. That's 3 possible commercial breaks in a span of 5 minutes or less of actual football talk or play.
