Over the last two weeks as the start of the American football season has started. I and my neighbor, both of us have daughters playing soccer, and we are watching a game or two a week of soccer. We have noticed how long American football takes. We are used to watching games where there are only commercials during the Half. The rest of the game is all action.
I completely understand the lust for advertising revenue that television stations need the revenue. American football seems to be the perfect scenario for advertisers. However, with DVRs I believe ad effectiveness is going down. I know I don’t watch any of them. I do however notice the electonic and painted advertising throughout the game on the sidelines of the soccer game.
I am just happy we get to see as much soccer as we do in the US now. I wonder if I would have been able to watch a bunch of soccer when I was younger I would have wanted to play more.
