So I timed the Super Bowl.....

There was 11 minutes and 39 seconds of actual gameplay. I was actually expecting more since both teams are notorious passers of the ball which would figure more time stoppages in.

A few interesting things I noticed:

The officials took on average 2 seconds to blow the whistle after the player was down by contact.

The longest play of the game was via a punt as opposed to kickoffs.

The average time for a play was just under 5 seconds.


I cannot wait for baseball to start so I can take a watch to that one.

I remember reading an article about a guy that timed the action in a NFL game and it came out to around 11 minutes. So to make it a more enjoyable game I timed it as well. Next time I do it I will have multiple watches to find out some more statistics.

i heard somewhere that the average was like 18 minutes.

i blame the decreased play time on indy running the ball way more than anyone expected.

I am not trying to start a sport related argument, but I found it interesting that for a 2-3 hour time slot only 12 minutes was actual gameplay. That is why I cannot wait for MLB, NBA, and NHL to start up so I can repeat it. I am going to do the same for soccer this coming weekend.

Soccer is silly because everyone outside of the two people around the ball is standing or jogging yet all we have to hear about it how its 90 MINUTES OF INTENSITY BRO.

Dont be so dumb to try and compare duration and disregard the intensity. Jogging a mile in 6 minutes is easier than doing dead lifts for 6 minutes.

in the same way you tell someone who doesn't know football not to talk about football, why dont you do us a favor and not talk about soccer. the vast majority of soccer is played off ball.

apples and oranges, neither sport is a tangible entity with a penis, so no need to get into a measuring contest.

Its not. Soccer is so easy an asian can do it. Until the asian realizes how ****ing easy soccer is and finds a sport more manly.

Because I have balls and testosterone. These incline me to play sports that I am less talented in, however encounter a much greater feeling of being a man. Chicks dont dig grass fairies.

No they can't. And running "distance" is incredibly difficult. And by "distance" I mean more then 10 miles.
