For football I have a playback group with a short skip of I think 12
or 15 seconds, which is just about perfect to skip between plays (when
the play ends, skip forward and they are usually just about to snap
for the next play) and a long jump of 2 minutes, I think, which will
skip commercials pretty much perfectly. I can watch a whole game in
about 25-20 minutes.
