The ratings for NFL broadcasts are lower than ever. I can think of several things the NFL could do to end the slump.
I want no broadcasters chattering during a football play except the play-by-play announcer. Please kill all other microphones.
I want to see Asians, other minorities and women in the broadcast booth. Hannah Storm would be great in the booth.
A female co-worker mentioned cheerleaders and the Redskins name as reasons that football is a big turn-off. If you must have cheerleaders, they should include men as well. If you must have cheerleaders, reduce the number and give them more publicity.
During the glory days of the NFL most commentary was limited to the half-time show. I wouldn't mind a longer half time if the staff in the broadcast booth were reduced. Don't dare show talking heads during a football play!
