The decision by some Irish men to force themselves to watch and ‘enjoy’ American football can often lead to damaging rifts with friends who have zero tolerance for that kind of bullshit.
Many Irish men who struggle to acknowledge the NFL’s existence are often on the receiving end of harassment from their 4th-quarter loving friends.
“What would I be staying up til 4 in the morning for? I’ve work on Monday,” offered another NFL-denying Irishman Cian O’Dea.

“My mate Séan rang me the other day to see if I thought ‘the Broncos defence could hold out’ but he pronounced it ‘dee-fence’…he actually said that. I don’t know who this guy is anymore,” shared an agitated Colm Kelly, “this is the same Séan now – from Navan who says ‘I thrun’ instead of ‘I threw’, I just don’t understand”.
