Photo: Pie chart reveals how little real action takes place during NFL game

It's an American tradition for football lovers to huddle around the television or attend NFL games on various Sundays from September to January.

But how much real game action are fans actually witnessing throughout an average 3-plus hour affair? According to this pie chart based off a study performed by the Wall Street Journal, it appears very little action at all.

In fact, game action accounts for a mere six percent of the total allotted time of an average NFL broadcast. The bulk of the other time is spent forcing viewers to watch shameless commercials and random shots of players standing around with their hands on their hips.

Despite the lack of real action, football remains king in America. And no amount of commercials, useless replays, and filler material will jeopardize that.
