I was just about to post this in the other thread.They're already doing it in the playoffs - cut the between-innings time down and run split screen commercials if you absolutely have to.
Baseball is not a sport that demands your constant TV attention like football or hockey, you can walk away for a few minutes and catch up later.If the commercial time is so precious....fine, but then shave down how much it impacts the game play.
There are about 11 minutes of action in an NFL football game. Now that is demanding attention, eh?
The NFL’s popularity is all the more remarkable when you inspect the fare it has to offer each week on television. An average professional football game lasts 3 hours and 12 minutes, but if you tally up the time when the ball is actually in play, the action amounts to a mere 11 minutes.
