    Tough one ...the thing that gives the criminal league the nod is that when my team sucks I still can enjoy watching cleveland play jacksonville....and with college ball I generally don't watch two shitbag never won anything teams and enjoy.

    I’m going NFL, because of the pace of play.  I don’t mean that by offenses don’t go fast enough or score enough, but that actually tends to make the game drag out to almost four hours sometimes.  Too many clock stoppages and booth reviews.  It would also help if a game would kickoff at the time it’s scheduled and not 15-30 min after.  Man I feel old complaining about all that.

    I don’t like devoting my Sundays to sports. But I also find ncaa more entertaining.

    Sometimes I wonder if I hadn’t graduated from the school with the current worst program in the FBS (Kansas), that I might not feel as crusty as I described above.

    There is so much to love about college football - and if the question were about attending the games the answer would be 1000% of the time, college.

    if you have two teams that are about equal yeah, but then you have some games that are like 70-3 or something

    Haha.  I agree the name doesn't match well but in truth, kicking the ball is a part of american football.  (Just not the majority of the time)
    Kick off
    Punt
    Extra points
    Field goals

    Nfl and it isn’t even close.  I could seriously watch any nfl game, college not so much.  Soccer is way too slow for me with regards to scoring.  
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......

    It's a tough call for me.  I'm more vested in the nfl as a bills fan.  I don't have an ncaa team other than the ub bulls, although I like programs and hate others.

    Ncaa game is more exciting, mainly due to much different styles of play and also you have disparity in skill levels of players.  Nfl everyone is a thoroughbred athlete.  


    Ncaa is a great haven of gambling.

    I usually prefer collegiate athletics over professional athletics.

    I don't watch sports, but when I did as a youngster, I always preferred pro sports...the parity and the higher level of competition is...better

    college football is the same teams every year and those teams are just too good for the rest.  that makes it kind of boring.  i had zero interest in last night's championship game.  The NFL, especially when your team is good, is much more interesting.   NFL playoffs are great to watch.  Soccer in America is like watching maybe Double A baseball. Just not enough talent.  While European football skill level is insanely good I can't get into the fact that there are no playoffs in the Premier league. Other than relegation what is the point of the regular season if your team is not at the top or the bottom of the league?  Honestly soccer just  seems like one long regular season.  Yea I know they have the Champions league but even that doesn't make sense to me. You were great last season, so you are in this league this season but can have a different team.  Maybe it's the American in me but I want single elimination playoffs to determine 1 champion.

    Definitely the NFL.  Like others have said, I'll watch any NFL game no matter the teams but same can't be said for college.  And the fact that college football still doesn't have a true playoff system makes it hard to take seriously.

    That game last night was unwatchable.  I had it on in the background for some of the first half and then sat down for about 5 minutes and focused on part of the 3rd quarter and moved onto something else to watch.  i realize this doesn't necessarily generalize all of NCAA football, but I find a lot of the playoff games we have seen since the 4-team playoff has been implemented have been non-competitive.  Alabama may have put up 70 if Devonta Smith doesn't get hurt.
    I wish I was a sacrifice, but somehow still lived on.

    NFL...however the NFL of 20-30 years was much more enjoyable to watch than the current product. Can same the same for all sports though.
