TV is the enemy of home game attendance in more ways than one. The improved visual experience with large screen HD is obvious. But I don't enjoy attending games as much as I once did because of the frequent and lengthy TV time outs + sometimes even lengthier play reviews (as well as parking problems, etc. that others here have mentioned). Once upon a time, I recall standing for and yelling for almost the entire game. Now, just as soon as you really get into the thing, play comes to a dead halt; the old rhythm and intensity isn't there. And despite what the article says, I actually do DVR the games I watch from home and start watching 2d quarter, so I can either fast forward through the commercials or replay some of the plays while I watch--can't do that at the stadium and is much better than twiddling my thumbs. Personally, I care nothing about seeing other games or commercials on the scoreboard. The only improvement from a personal attendance perspective is that at least I don't have to worry about hurrying back from the men's room or concessions. But that's not enough for me to put up with parking and traffic problems, endless breaks and scoreboard commercials just so I can watch the Dawgs obliterate Southeastern Connecticut Forestry State.
So far as I'm concerned, the golden egg laying goose, and the greatest spectator sports experience in America, is being not-so-slowly smothered to death by the combination of Athletic Department and TV network greed, and it breaks my heart to see it.
