For football, a commercial after the extra point, then kickoff, commercial, then back to the action. Football games used to be over in 2 3/4 to 3 hours. Now they take 30 minutes longer. That is why I like soccer. No dopey stoppages.
Eh let's be honest.

The NHL has a LONG LONG ways to go, to match the NFL when it comes to unneccessarry stoppages for commercial time.
