Hey, it looks like it’s not just a few crazed fans that are watching college football spring games. The NFL has been watching, too. Watching the watchers, that is:
… Spring games, normally an intrasquad contest, have become commonplace in college football. Some top programs have capacity crowds for the game.
”It was raised by a few clubs,” Goodell said. ”More in the context of what the colleges do.”
The NFL spring games could be in the form of a scrimmage or matchup between two teams.
Leave it to the NFL to find something even more meaningless than the first fall preseason game – and then squeeze a buck from it. At least the colleges only have at most a nominal charge for their spring games. I can’t wait to see pro fans being charged a regular season ticket price for this.
