Around when Michael Jordan removed the need to actually dribble the ball when going from the top of his key to dunk in the opposing basket.
Or when actually TOUCHING a QB resulted in a flag every time (put ‘em in a dress and be done with it!). Likewise a DB actually defending a pass without getting a pass interference flag.
I can’t comment on hockey, but very few can, since very few watch. Soccer even more so because less so.
And don’t get me started on that abomination to sports, the baseball DH...
In the tiny bit of Soccer I’ve been forced to watch, I think off-sides and letting the clock run is stupid; and in hockey (husband is forcing me to watch the Rangers right now, in the Stanley Cup playoffs), icing is stupid (they’re calling it right now— it looks like defense to me!) and off sides is pretty dumb. I guess I just don’t like off sides calls! Well, they make sense in football.
Yeah, because only 650 million people or so watched a mid-week EPL match between Manchester City and Manchester United yesterday. Absolutely pitiful numbers compared to a typical Monday night MLB audience, right?
