Oh, I'll always watch. Though the sport is night and day different than what it was back in my first year watching in 1978. As for collecting, no moderns to speak of it. Finally started dabbling in football HOF rookies from the 50's - 70's. There's tremendous value in football cards from that era IMO

Will always love football, but will also admit that the blush is off the rose. I love my vintage stuff, but stopped collecting in the early 2000's due to manufactured scarcity in the hobby and disillusion with my beloved Raiders signing guys whom i could not stand (Sapp, Moss and Romanowski). I found myself unable to cheer for them any longer and let my season tickets lapse. I actually get more enjoyment lately watching college football. While i doubt I will ever let go of my vintage football cards, I rarely purchase modern cards anymore. http://imageevent.com/supplex55/rare...cardcollection

I tried to collect one year after Topps got out of making football cards. The chase cards to complete standard sets was just too much. So, it appears that I am no longer collecting new stuff. But, that is because of card manufacturers trying to suck the last penny out of me, not because of the game. I still love the game.

Same for me, Sam. When Topps stopped, I stopped.

A lot of what you said here, I think is total BS.
Last time I checked, when you lose a war that you started (Palestinians) you don't get to pick your spot any longer. That is because you lost. Time to move on LOL......BTW Pro Football still sucks bad. College and HS football are fun to watch.

The National Anthem shouldn't even be played at sporting events. The U.S. flag represents the death of millions of people at the expense of each of our hands. The anthem itself is about death and destruction.

The military pays the NFL to pump all that patriotic bullshit down the drones watching. Human drones, not the drones we as a country send to kill innocent families.

Blind patriotism is conditioned through television screens all over this country and it is disgusting...It is sickening...

If you still think wars are fought for freedom, think again...Oil, resources, drugs, power, and money. Those are the primary factors for war.

Do you think it is a coincidence that we are stuck in Afghanistan? Look how much opium is over there, now look at the opium epidemic throughout our country. Hmmm...

Look back on how the U.S. trained Bin Laden, now look how many times these radical groups have somehow got U.S. weapons. That seems to be a cycle...

We give a shitload of money to Israel and do you know what is really going on over there? Palestinian people aren't being treated very nicely. Look into how much natural gas is over in that region. Hmmm...

Damn, I didn't think I was going to piss you guys off till later tonight, when I posted a link to my new website that throws a nice shot at this forum. All in good fun of course. hahahahahahahhahah

I was leaving this thread alone, and quite frankly staying away from this museum for the most part...

But since Leon needs a little explanation, and obviously wants to get some mischief going, I guess I'm game. hahahah

The US has killed many innocent people. That is a fact. I am also saying the flag is political, and anything political should not be involved with sporting events...

Blind patriotism is conditioned through television screens all over this country.

This is absolutely fact. Look how much money the military spends on advertisements and special events at these games.

If you still think wars are fought for freedom, think again...Oil, resources, drugs, power, and money. Those are the primary factors for war.

I guess this could be debated, but come on. When corporations end up on both sides of a war, something is fishy...

Do you think it is a coincidence that we are stuck in Afghanistan? Look how much opium is over there, now look at the opium epidemic throughout our country.

Opinion right now, but don't be surprised in 20 years when this turns out to be true....

Look back on how the U.S. trained Bin Laden, now look how many times these radical groups have somehow got U.S. weapons. That seems to be a cycle...

This is an absolute fact. We definitely trained Bin Laden.

We give a shitload of money to Israel and do you know what is really going on over there? Palestinian people aren't being treated very nicely. Look into how much natural gas is over in that region. Hmmm...

This is a sticky situation here. I would refer to Abby Martins reporting on this situation. Some really good insight from her. I just don't like the amount of money we provide to Israel every year. Plus, it is a fact that there is tons on natural gas over there...

You guys can think what you want. But, if the only source of your information is coming from mainstream media outlets, including the web, newspapers and television, you are being misinformed immensely. The mainstream media cannot be trusted. That is a fact.

I started this thread and have reflected on my thoughts since. It is hard to explain, but my overall interest in the NFL had started to wane even before the kneeling and associated stuff. I don't know, maybe it is just a product of raising kids, having a career, and just not having the time I used to have. My passion for my favorite team really focuses on the past and not the present so there isn't always that drive to tune in and watch them either. Fantasy football does it for some, but I just don't have any interest in that.

I think what it comes down to is that I am far more interested in collecting than I am in watching. The two don't necessarily have to go hand in hand unless one collects exclusively modern cards and memorabilia, I suppose.

Over the last couple of years, I have developed an interest in vintage photography. It is, for me at least, an exciting new outlet. I really enjoy the images, many of which are truly unique. Now the last year and a half, my desire to collect football (especially but not exclusively AFL) has surfaced, and I am having a lot of fun. Within the last week or so, these two interests have started to merge, and fun times are ahead! Neither of these pursuits, I am finding, take my current feelings towards the NFL into account. The interests fed by my collecting truly stand on their own.

ok Kevin, you win. I am back to the baseball card side. And to get back to topic, I still don't care for the NFL but then again, haven't liked it in about 20 yrs or so....

That's an awesome area to explore, Robert. In my opinion vintage football photos are waaaay undervalued. You can find images that were used to create football cards, images of early stars that had no cards at all, images of famous teams, game action photos, etc.

Thanks, Jeff. I will always collect cards, but I find the photographs to be a nice change of pace. I especially like the game action shots...Kind of little moments frozen in time. The images used to make cards can be cool also. Like my card collecting interests, I am especially into the AFL, but this niche will allow me to go farther back, too. I am also drawn to photographs from the 1920s, 1930s and so on which simply capture game action on a football field of no one in particular. .just the game.
