A game of American football, despite usually lasting for over three hours, only contains about 15 to 20 minutes of action. There’s a lot of waiting, milling around, chatting, huddling, lining up, yelling, looking, more yelling, and then an inevitable time-out whistle so there can be a long discussion with the coach, more milling, lining up, and yelling. When the ball is finally snapped, the actual play lasts for, what, 10 seconds?

And then while everyone involved mills around again it’s time for us to watch those 10 seconds of action in slow motion instant replays from 14 different angles that can last several minutes. Hence the three hour game time.
