From the NY Daily News/Madden:

"Baseball is about as exciting as standing in line at the supermarket. Baseball doesn't test anything but your ability to withstand boredom.
NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue
in Sports Illustrated this week"


What an a**.

I didn't read it yet but I'd have to agree that he's a tool. I think that baseball is more personally intense than football. I'd read the article in SI about him but I'm too busy reading baseball articles w/ only 5 weeks until draft day!! boo yeah!!!

I threw that mag in the trash when I saw the words "Paul Tagliabue is not boring" on the cover, so I wouldn't be able to comment on the article.

He's jealous that they don't call football the great American pastime.

I wonder if it's going to hurt the NFL that the small market teams are closing out the playoffs? My only interest in watching either game today would be to razz the 3 rabid Steeler fans in our baseball league if the Steelers lose.

Football is more fun to watch than Baseball in my opinion, but Football is boring as heck to actually follow, I watch a game and turn it off and forget about the sport until the next game is on. During baseball season I eat, drink and breathe baseball. I look at the stats from almost every game, I read about it whenever I get the chance etc, the game itself is facinating to follow. They are very different games.

Denver isn't a small market team, they have a huge fan base both demographically and geographically that stretches from Montana all the way south to the Mexicn border. Legions of fans in AZ. Utah Nebraska N.M. KS. WY.
And Pittsburgh might be one of the biggest fan based teams in the country outside of Dallas and Oakland. So these two teams are as mighty in terms of popularity as any one else considered a marquee organization
