In some ways, it's never been a better time to be a football fan — college football and the NFL dominate American sports.

But if you actually want to watch NFL games, you're at the mercy of some convoluted business and technology arrangements.

Business Insider's Graham Flanagan, a self-proclaimed Alabama football fan, broke down the conundrum in a Friday video, explaining how anyone who's not a DirecTV subscriber faces some severe challenges when trying to watch NFL games — and will for the next eight years.

Think you can just buy the NFL's game package and hook up your computer to your TV?

That'll take a lot of cables plus, as Flanagan noted, "There's gonna be some buffering."

He said all the NFL-related challenges are part of the reason why he prefers college ball.
