Plus 1. Would much rather watch that than the commercials. This is a non issue to me.

Pretty much.

You mean the four fifteen minute quarters?

Take up the criteria distinction with the WSJ folks.
I think the WSJ is throwing out time even when the clock is running. Otherwise they would have 60 minutes of game play instead of 11. If you factor in viewing the game on a stopped game clock then it to s probably closer to 90 minutes of game time.

Is it really that important for us to see two coaches shake hands? To me it's pointless video footage to see players and coaches having a conversation. Anyone agree?
There is this new invention...you may have heard of it. It's called the remote control. You can pick it up and change the channel so you don't have to be bored by all 30 seconds of the players being good sports.

To me, that's the one thing that makes football different from other sports. At the end of a baseball game, the winning team congratulates itself and celebrates while the losing opposition sulks to the clubhouse. Same for hockey and basketball.

In US football and soccer worldwide, when the game is over, the players socialize and take time to be good sports. Change the channel if your attention span is too short to endure it.

Basketball only does it in the playoffs after the team is eliminated

I am always curious to see the coaches as they approach.. occasionally you will get something interesting.. either a coach snub or a quick jab (word)... remember a few years back when Schwartz started chasing Harbaugh..that's what the networks hope they can catch on tv... to quote Don Henley, give us dirty laundry!

I agree. I like seeing the post game stuff. It's always interesting (at least for me) to see if Belichick will actually say something to the opposing coach or shake a hand in stride & be on his way. Plus it's neat seeing opposing players joke & laugh after a hard fought match.
Also, if they didn't have the cameras rolling, then we wouldn't have seen this great moment.
