You know when the game ends and the players and coaches go to shake hands and hug each other, why is the camera showing viewers all of this? The game has ended and why can't the station just go to a commercial before going back to the studio? We are not shown the player introductions before the game so why do we need to see the all the hugging and chatting on the field after the game? lol

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?

More trivial football nothings. Less commercials.

Maybe it's the camera guys way of getting in some extra panning-around time, and getting in some shots of a totally insignificant after-game? However, the engineers in the trucks are supposed to control all of the camera shots! Who knows? You're right, commercial & studio should usually follow!

I'd like to see the player intros pre-game. Don't care about seeing the national anthem pre-game though (unless it's something cool, like someone playing it on a violin... something like the below).

If they cut to a commercial you'd complain about that, too, so it doesn't matter.

The "problem" is in the totality of the broadcast and how little of it is game/play time.

I think most viewers lump the time in which players line-up in their formations on offense and defense, substitute, and call plays in the huddle as actual game action. So i would consider the actual game action 60 minutes, and not 11 minutes. I don't consider it 49 minutes of just standing around.

I'm sure some do. But if the clock ain't running...

You mean the four fifteen minute quarters?

Take up the criteria distinction with the WSJ folks.
