List RulesVote up your biggest complaints about the NFL.

NFL football is the most popular sport in America, but that doesn't mean there aren't things about it that suck. Every Sunday, Americans are glued to their TVs watching football, but unless you're watching NFL RedZone, which costs a fortune, you're probably watching a commercial or footage of a bunch of guys in uniform standing around waiting. That's because in a football game, there are only 11 minutes of action. Even the biggest football fans can agree there are plenty of reasons the NFL sucks.

For starters, commissioner Roger Goodell makes more than $30 million a year in salary. That seems a tad high for someone who seems to never do anything right. The rules are probably the least clear of any of the major sports, and it's certainly the most dangerous sport in the US. And these are just a few of the NFL complaints every football fan has. 

Here are things about the NFL that suck. Vote up the ones you think suck the hardest (and not in a good way).
