I think they're supposed to be because of the extra games being played in the hotter summer weather and are supposed to be one minute long.

I can see you being right though and before we know it they'll be at every game, will be two minutes and will have ads in the ones covered by TV.

Was it FIFA who wanted games of four quarters?  Someone raised the topic but I can't remember.

Now that we have this in England with the drink breaks,  how long do you think it'll be before the TV companies sneak in adverts? 

Wouldn't surprise me, formalise it and toss in a couple adverts, at the end of the day, its a big money making racket anyway.

Americans demanded quarters for World Cup 94 so they could sell more ads but they backed down when they realised they were getting nowhere with it.

US tv  were the drivers behind breaks in every odd game in tennis, just for ads. Happened long time ago and it has stuck.

Have you ever sat down and watched TV in the US for a few hours? It's absolutely nuts. Ads every few minutes. America is capitalism on steroids.

The NFL is more popular than church and I don't know why. An average professional game lasts 3 hours and 12 minutes, but the ball is only in play for 11 minutes. More than 100 ads are shown during a game. Horrific.
