No Future Anti-Football Runs

See Press Release…

Anti-Football Run Achieves Goal and Will Quit While Ahead

The semi-celebrated Anti-Football Run has achieved its goal. National Football League TV viewership is down; watching January 1st college football games on television is a thing of the past.

The ratings prove it: Fox is down 4 percent, CBS is down 10 percent, ABC is off 7 percent and ESPN is down 11 percent.

Twenty-five years ago (maybe 26) Anti-Football founder Martin Swig set out to prove there was life beyond an easy chair in front of a TV screen to kick off the new year.

His premise: who knows who’s playing which football game? Who cares? Wouldn’t it be more fun to get in an ancient car and drive the Marin countryside each January 1st enjoying the crisp clean smell of exhaust coming from the back of some old out-of-tune crock?

The answer was clearly yes. Each year, the Anti-Football Run has grown from dozens, to scores to more than 100 participants in 2015. Unnamed motoring enthusiasts agree: a positive impact has been made on the consciousness of the nation. It’s the end of the road for the Anti-Football Run.
