In response to slasher9's comment:
sorry, i was just trying to explain why the typical fan cares when it comes to baseball but doesnt care when it comes to football. the fact remains, we dont care in football. we still like them when they come back from their 4 game suspensions.
and no, other than maybe the fan of that particular team/player - no one cares about #'s in football.
did you know who held the previous records?
the only semi meaningful record in football is the single season rushing mark. and even that is relatively unknown except last year when AP got very close to it. the sack record is a joke. favre fell to the ground to give it to him. do you know who held it previously?
everyone in the world knew who held the single season HR record prior to sosa-mcgwire season. everone knows the last player to bat .400. everyone knows the all time hit leader. everyone knows who played the most consecutive games. i couldnt even care who played the most games in the nfl consecutively.
the only thing i do know is that for these reasons, we care that our players in baseball used steroids and ruined the numbers.
I get what your saying for sure but this
we still like them when they come back from their 4 game suspensions.
I can`t stand the venomous evil comments and articles I read about baseball players while football players get a free pass. Doesnt seem fair
BTW in terms of Records, weren`t the previous holder Manning for TD`s, Sapp for Sacks, and Rice for TD, can`t remember the TE record holder.
