Is there anything more boring than preseason sports?
- “Pay to watch games that mean nothing!”
- “See players who will never escape the minor leagues!”
- “Even the refs don’t care!”
The most exciting thing that could possibly happen at a preseason game? You might witness your favorite player suffer a horrific, career-ending injury.
Why not just move straight from training camp into the regular season? Let the teams work out the kinks on the fly, and start playing games that matter ASAP.
Sure, the play would be sloppy at first. But fans would still enjoy it far more than meaningless games for weeks on end.
