11 Most Annoying Trends In Football - 11 Points Countdown
written by Sam Greenspan

College football kicked off this past weekend and the NFL season starts tonight, so this week's 11 Points Countdown is all about why both of them are horribly flawed.

My friend and football connoisseur Jeremy Abramson came in this week to discuss the 11 most annoying trends in football, both pro and college. There are definitely some winners in here.

If you could take a moment to subscribe to the YouTube channel after watching the video it would make me very pleased. And I woke up with a sore back, so, ya know, I need it?




Here are the full results of the poll. The top 11 are in white to avoid spoilers, just highlight to view. (If you're on an iPhone/iPad, you may have to copy these, then paste it somewhere, because my most recent attempt at a better solution once again flopped.)
  1. Fantasy football overwhelming everything
  2. Tim Tebow obsession
  3. There's still not a real college playoff
  4. More than half of teams go to bowl games
  5. Quarterbacks way too protected
  6. Not enough touchdown dances anymore
  7. Annual delusional Notre Dame fans
  8. Colleges getting attention through crazy turf colors
  9. Injuries in preseason games
  10. Schools scheduling weak non-conference games
  11. Your team sucks
  12. College football scandals
  13. Three day long NFL draft
  14. People complaining about the college football playoff
  15. Oakland Raiders fans
  16. Too many injuries
  17. SEC dominance
  18. Neutered kickoff rules
  19. Too many pregame show hosts
  20. Overpriced beer
  21. Chris Berman
  22. Conferences realigning creating super conferences
  23. No team in Los Angeles
