Says Saban: "To be quite honest with you, I find it difficult to appreciate the game when I watch it. I spend all my time observing teams, whether it's a defence to prepare for our attack or an offence to prepare for the defence."

"I might as well go back to work," he said in closing. So it's not fun, and I find myself asking, "Why didn't they call timeout?" near the end of the game. I feel like I'm running a game that we're both playing. So I ask, "What are some Netflix options?"
