I dont think football is a game for youngsters the way that baseball or soccer is.
I think the nuances of football are just too much for a young mind to really appreciate
.. i know when I was younger.. i watched the superbowl and that was about it.. but id watch baseball 24/7.. and I played baseball as well, so that is probably why.
When I got older.. I learned to love football. I think alot of kids will take the same route I did.
