Serves them right for trying to force ordinary people to pay for sports that we all used to watch on TV for no additional charge. I know that most people have cable right now, but that's not the point; it's the principle of the whole thing. Everything now in modern U.S. sports is about hyping sh*t up and making people pay twice as much for a product that's not twice as good. I can't blame people for saying screw it.
I agree with the content of this post in its entirety

IMO another thing that hurts the game is that there's no lead-up to the championship game no matter who plays in it. Alabama's last game before Monday night was when? Thanksgiving weekend? LSU's last game was the first weekend in December? You have the holidays in between, the NFL to take away the media's attention, and that's an awful lot of events and time to completely forget about the two teams you're supposed to care about.
