In the NBA i do unless the Heat, Thunder, Spurs are playing. I'm not going to sit and watch a game between Charlotte and Milwaukee
That's the point. Because those teams have low payroll and can't win. Thus the league is unfair or stacked toward certain teams.
I seriously doubt that you'd watch a Chiefs v Jaguars game. Maybe if you bet on it, or if you have fantasy players. But strictly speaking, Charlotte and Milwaukee is equivalent to Jags Chiefs. Can you honestly tell me you would sit down and watch that?
I don't really think you can compare. The problem with the NBA is the reg season is too long. You don't need 82 games. People always ask me if I'm a bigger Laker or Niner fan, and I always say if Lakers and Niners are in the playoffs I root for both with the same passion...But Monday when we play the Bears will I care as much as Friday when Lakers play the Suns? No because each game matters more.
NFL has a huge advantage due to fantasy football. A lot of people who didn't watch a single game 5-10 years ago watch every game or redzone channel every Sunday because of it.
