Your life is not everyone's life. During the season I'd rather go outside and play with my daughter and then come home and relax and watch a couple three hour games in the same amount of time it takes to watch one.

I'm sorry. When did I ever state my life is everyone's life? Feel free to point me to that statement.

I often time my watching so that I will be "live" for the final minutes of the game. I am good at avoiding the news and the internet (knowing completely spoils it), but I have had to train friends not to send me text messages until its the last 5 minutes. Its an excellent time saver for NBA games in particular, as I discovered I don't really care to see if the player makes or misses the free throws (along with clipping commercials/halftime).

That said - I 100% agree that the Superbowl is in a class by itself. That is for live tv, family and fun. I'll only use the DVR to replay a great commercial if some one missed it.

I can see recording other games. Just not Super Bowl. It's meant for live. Complete waste to watch it after its happened. Makes it not as eventful. It's like watching new years ball drop after its over. Just doesn't have the same effect of celebratory effect as it could live.

The implication that watching sports on a DVR later is a "waste". A waste of what exactly? For many of us, the DVR is a god-send when it comes to sports. No need to "waste" our lives watching advertisements and clueless halftime shows.

When you're watching the New Years ball drop it's already old news. It was the New year already all over the world before you saw it.

Under those circumstances its perfectly understandable. I would, too.

When I first started using my DVR I felt the same way. I rarely recorded sporting events. Then I started recording a few college BB games. Then a few more. Then I started saying to myself; Hmm, this is pretty cool. I can watch whenever I want; rewind plays over and over again; enjoy beautiful days outdoors, and believe it or not, I find it more enjoyable because I can watch it at night when there is nothing, absolutely nothing, that I'm interested in watching during primetime. Why aren't I recording all sports? And so it is. Last week I watched Duke then North Carolina in back to back games. My wife will attest to the fact that I yell and get emotionally involved just as much when I watch a recorded Duke BB game as I do watching the Redskins live. To think otherwise is an illusion. Until you try it you shouldn't knock it. I'm constantly telling my wife that the DVR is one of the greatest inventions, ever. Sports on DVR - it just doesn't get any better.

The theory that a major sporting event is less of an event if you watch it on DVR is just silly. As long as you don't know the outcome, it's every bit as exciting to watch.

He said trash talk, not fact stating.

It's actually more exciting to watch because your emotions don't have to cool down as you sit through constant commercials or halftime. All the action condensed into a shorter time frame. I haven't watch one Giants game on TV starting at the actual kick-off time this entire season, but many times I'm at the end of the game around the same time as those that did. It just took me an hour less to get there.

It's also usually watched with a group of people hence the birth of Super Bowl parties! I have viewed it that way and enjoyed it.

Watching the Super Bowl home alone? That doesn't sound too exciting after everyone else has knows the outcome and is out either celebrating or sulking.
I have recorded regular season football games and caught up with them later in the day!

Can't watch my team's games with casual fans chattering away and being annoying distractions. When other teams are in the SB I'm OK with parties, although I did go ballistic and annoy others in the SB where refs made a series of egregiously bad calls one after another against the Sea Hags several years ago.

I was yelling at that game also! It was obvious but it's happened before in big games. Oakland vs the Patriots is one of the infamous games of the past.

I pretty much record football games I want to watch these days. I want to skip thru the commercial breaks. The Super Bowl is another story. You actually WANT to watch the commercials, because the ad agencies spend a huge amount of $$$ to buy the ad time and produce top-notch commercials programming. Also because of the eyeball count.

You never know what commercials actually will be memorable (EDS - herding cats, Snickers - Betty White/Abe Vigoda).

FYI, EDS was acquired by HP a few years later.

Agreed. It should be called Sanitation talk.

My point exactly. I can understand normal season. But not the Super Bowl.

As I asked. Where did I state everyone lives my life. Did you not see " IMO."

IMO- In My Opinion.

And I'm purely talking Super Bowl. You wouldn't have 3 games to watch the same time for one. It's this one last game.

Live is what it's meant for. People laughing at the commercials. Drinking a few. Having friends and family just have a good time.

There's a reason it's the #1 live event watched in tv.

Heck. How would you be able to even contribute to a trash talk thread without even watching the game live?

Everyone's in doing there talk and a sudden. "Hold on guys. I haven't watched it yet. I'll he here to talk smack in a few hours." Doesn't make much sense now does it.

I figured I'd give people enough time to get the bile out of their system from last week's games, before making the title change.

If you DVR the Super Bowl and start watching at 6:45 then at least you'll be able to FF through Madonna and watch the 2nd half live.
post #598 of 830
Don't think I ever watch half time. Food time! Not like I'm not eating of drinking something the entire time anyway lol

I think there should be two football trash talk threads.

Seriously.

Super Bowl is different. Most of the women are watching just to see the ads.
