Interesting opinion, but when I comes to college football, I disagree. Commercials are what extends college football games. The clock rules have basically remained the same, but the TV timeouts have increased.
The attention spans of viewers has declined.

I've been to one NFL game. The TV time-outs drove me nuts.

The routine NFL game contains 20 commercial breaks and over 100 ads.
In the NFL, the rules call for 10 commercial breaks in each half of a game: The placement of two ad breaks is mandatory — at the end of a quarter and at the two-minute warning before the end of a half — and eight are optional.
Whats wrong with commercials?...They give you time to grab a another cold one and some beer munchies
YES, they are given 6-8 hours of airtime to waste yet no matter what the exhibition it is they find ways of dragging it out longer interfering with subsequent programming.

Do not watch much sports on TV anymore
And ticket prices are out of my reach anymore.
I still enjoy watching my favorite colleges play football on Saturday.
The rest of the overpaid prima donnas can pound sand.
Never cared to watch sports. Play yes, but can’t stand to watch.
Heck, we cancelled our cable service and now the TV just collects dust.

I only attend college football and pro baseball games, and I don’t notice that they get drug out. I know there are a lot of commercial breaks, but usually at the college games they have things going on to keep the audience entertained.
We get the government we deserve.
