A Not So Super, Super Bowl XLIX

Climbing on my football soapbox, for just a moment…

I’d like to know if anyone else is dismayed over the results of yesterday’s NFL Playoffs?

The same Seattle team and players will return for the second year in a row. Do we really want to see more turnovers and crybaby action from Wilson? I know athletes carry strong emotions and adrenaline levels run high on big game days, but can’t they at least try to keep it together while the cameras roll? Save the tears for family and teammates. As a fan I’d like to see solid, coherent commentary after a big win—not belligerent rants and girlie sobs.

There’s no denying Brady’s talent as a quarterback, though not personally a fan. However, another BIG win sparks more reports of cheating. Really, deflate the game balls? Is Luck, a relatively young player, that much of a threat to New England? Nope, but maybe all the ESPN hype was. If the accusations turn out to be true, how can fans root for a team that continues to cheat—and get caught?

Last year I cheered for a Seattle win. This year I will be tuning in for the commercials and nothing more.

  • I’m so with you, Sandra. To find out that 11 out of the 12 footballs were under-inflated, is highly suspicious. Not to mention, that the Patriots have a prior history of cheating. I’m no Seattle fan, but I can’t support cheating. In my opinion, any team caught cheating, should not be permitted to play in the Superbowl. Obviously, the penalty given to the Patriots didn’t deter further cheating. 🙁
