The withdrawal effects come not from the game itself, but from the fact that it marks the end of football season, Halaris said.

For a fan, football season consists of a steady series of dopamine releases as the thrills build. When the pleasurable stimulation is removed, the brain experiences withdrawal from dopamine, much like the brain of a smoker deprived of nicotine.
