Speaking for myself, I do not just watch for scoring. If I did, I might be a basketball fan.
I love the play between the scoring. Thats why I enjoy hockey as much as I do. Thats why I enjoy soccer. Thats why I enjoy Aussie football, between the points.
Thats why I can enjoy lower score games of football.
I dont understand people who complain about scoring, too much, too little, whatever.
IMO, a true fan of the sport/game will enjoy the plays, both offensively and defensively regardless of total scoring. A great catch is a great catch, whether it be in the endzone, or a teams own 30. A 90 yard return is just as exciting if it ends at the 10 as one that ends in the endzone.
