Making more set times that mark events in the preseason like everyone starting training camp the same time makes perfect sense. People get up for set dates like that and it is energy they can use for their product.
People on this board are gonna be all HAPPY BACK TO NFL DAY LETS HAVE 12 BEERS.
It makes sense. Sort of like when people go nutsos for pitchers and catchers reporting. And that is (imo) a lesser product.
Baseball has been really stable since the 94 work stoppage and the lessoning of the use of steriods in this era. TV contracts, increased attendence in most markets illustrate this.
Football is still king, but I don't know if it is gonna stay that way. It seems really volitile and unsettled right now.
And honestly, being a Cardinal fan is the one point of sanity in my sports life. The Chiefs, the Tigers, and the Blues just suck the life out of me.
I appreciate baseball. Moreso every year.
