|"The players don't care what day of the week they win this bruh!"|
In more recent years with the institution of the NFL network some games are being played on Thursday starting on Thanksgiving because the college football season is just about over. Why does the NFL choose to do it this way? Ratings bruh! It's all about the bottom line. So if that is the case why is the Super Bowl still being played on Sunday?
Over the years the Super Bowl has become an unofficial national holiday! It's the most watched television event in the United States and on that particular Sunday probably the most watched event in the world. Everybody is either hosting a Super Bowl party or has been invited to one.
The only problem that folks run into is that the game doesn't start until 6:30pm and the halftime show is longer than normal. Combine that with the already existing party filled with alcohol and food the night can get pretty long. So what typically happens? People start leaving the party at halftime because they have to go to work the next day or their kids have to go to school the next morning.
If it really is about the money and ratings why not have the joint on Saturday? I know the tradition has been to have it on Super Bowl Sunday but what's wrong with Super Bowl Saturday? Let's help the American economy all the way around bruh! Don't just think about the NFL and its advertisers. Let everybody get in on the money like the restaurants, bars, clubs, hotels etc. I know they're getting paid now but think about how much money could be generated if the game was on Saturday.
Moving the game up just one day gives everybody else the opportunity to make more money and more people will watch the game in its entirety. The parties would last longer and the American workforce would be more productive on Monday morning because less people would call in sick.
There's no rule that says that the game has to be played on Sunday bruh! I know you'll argue tradition but I'll argue bread trumps tradition. Just ask all of the college football programs that have recently destroyed 100 year old rivalries by changing conferences for the sake of making money. I don't agree with it but I understand.
However, I don't believe that there are very many people that would trip if the game was played on Saturday because everybody likes a party and good fellowship with friends.
Holla At Ya Boy!
