Go DC Defenders!!
I had the game on while working in the shop.
The rules changes are kind of interesting, I feel like they were created in part
to mask the sub par product on the field. Clock stops every play during 2 minute drives, taking a heap of pressure off offensive players. Everything is faster, so maybe you don’t have much time to think about the easy catch the nobody WR just dropped. No kicks for extra points so less opportunities for these scrubs kickers to miss kicks.
The most interesting thing was the embracing of gambling. Lines are displayed the entire game, and announcers talk about gambling reprocussions almost every play of the 3rd and 4th quarters. I guess it’s smart, get the degenerate gamblers Hooked you may have something.
The weirdest gimmick is the live mic on the coaches. Like...uhh...what’s to stop someone from the other team from watching the game and sending calls to the D?
Silliest gimmick is interviewing players 10 seconds after they make a play. Breathless players trying to answer dumb questions isn’t exactly riveting.
