    @thedude-abides agreed... that would make sense... don't think that will be much good either, but would definitely be a lot better!

        Just bring back Playmakers. Oh wait, thats right, the NFL pressured ESPN to cancel the show bc it showed Professional football players in a bad light. SO lets just create a fictional show that wont have any of the enjoyable story lines Playmakers had.

          No... No... NO!!!! We like to watch football... don't milk the cow NFL, do you not already make enough money off of the $200-300 jerseys, endless packed stadiums, tv time, merchandise, parking, food... you get my freaking point... I am losing hope in Hollywood... If your goal was to get people back into reading, keep doing what you're doing because I am hating watching TV anymore...
