NFL & Goodell Choose to violate children on Super Bowl Sunday

In hiring Madonna, the NFL know what they are getting:

The women famous for being arrested for masturbating on a bed in front of all her once teenaged fans, desecrating and using the crucifix as a sexual prop and of course the lesbian kiss seen around the world on national television with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.

My "exposé" is meant to bring the rightful shame to the NFL & Goodell as they TARGET children...

Oh dear, we’re totally behind the times here. Madonna has remade herself as a respectable matron.

I have to wonder what idiot even suggest Madonna at the Super Bowl? Does anyone really believe Madonna appeals to football fans? It’s like getting Snoop Dogg or 50 Cent to perform at the CMAs. Madonna is the last “artist” I’d get to do the Super Bowl.

Hey, they’re being taught this stuff in school and government programs and it’s already all over on TV. Heck, even some churches push this kind of thing. What could possibly be wrong?

Folks, kill your TV (who cares about pimps and thugs chasing a ball around?) and get your kiddies out of the publik skoolz. Do that and start getting involved with your family and teach them what YOU believe by modeling it. Discover the world by actually interacting with it instead of watching. A brave, new world is out there and it ain’t the one Huxley envisioned.

Do tell, I’d bet that, given a choice a majority of us would be happy to live in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World.

Unfortunately, all such attempts at a real-life utopia have ended in poverty, squalor and mass murder.

She can come out buck naked and perform human sacrifice for all I care - I WON’T BE WATCHING.

She has nothing to say, show, or do that I have even the most remote interest in. As matter of fact, I have someplace to go on Sunday. Once upon a time I would have rushed home to watch every minute of the Superbowl and the pregame stuff. Now, if I happen to be home while it’s still on, I might watch some of it. If I miss it all I couldn’t care less.

Here’s an idea...if you HAVE to watch the Super Bowl because you buy into all the hype about commercials and all that, THEN TURN OFF the TV during the half time show. As for me, I plan on reading a good book or maybe checking out FR!!
I know some people (some guys) do watch it for the football!

The last Super Bowl I watched was the second San Francisco-Cincinnati game.

“The last Super Bowl I watched was the second San Francisco-Cincinnati game.”

I doubt we’ll watch; it’s always the same teams playing. Patriots, Steelers, whoever.....we’ll get excited when our Carolina Panthers get there one year. (Yes, I know, LOL).

Either way, forget that nasty halftime show. Puppy Bowl, here I come.

If I had a dog in this years hunt I would be watching but as usual, due to the crap shown, I would turn off the half time show...what is the point of that to begin with?

Several years ago when my son was younger, we turned the channel during half time and starting watching the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet. My son turns 21 this year and for the past 2 or 3 years, he and his buddies have gotten together to watch the Super Bowl at our house and almost always ended up turning the channel to watch the Puppy Bowl and it was so good, they never realized they had not turned the channel back to the game! As a parent I was very happy I could leave the channel on and walk away not having to worry about which boob my son was watching! This year, with my son off at college and not coming home for the game, my husband and I have already checked out the Puppy Bowl starting line up on line and are more excited about a puppy show than a football game! How sad has that "super" bowl become when two die hard football fans would rather watch dogs play ball!! I must be getting old

I may be in the minority, but I believe that football games, Super Bowls included, should feature marching bands for their halftime shows.


Super Bowl I Halftime Show, 1967. Note the size of the crowd. USC's Mudd Tower can be seen in the background to the right, and the LA County Natural History Museum is to the left.

People think its a game, its a business. The NFL manipulates their product to increase their revenues. They like to see the big market teams in the playoffs and superbowl, they make more money.

5 seconds of play, 25 seconds of drivel, and 3 minutes of commercial is the average NFL game

Could care less, won't be watching anyway. This is one of the most snoozefest matchups in years. Basically yet another in a long line of local New Yawk - Bawston rivalries. Yankees, Red Sox, Giants, Patriots. ZZZZZZZzzzzzzz. I could care less.

Maybe they'll get ratings outside the local New Yawk - Bawston market, maybe not. Plus I can't stand that arrogant jerk Brady, I'm sick & tired of seeing the Pats in post season, and I don't care for New Yawk teams either, just because they have the MOST obnoxious fans on earth.

So, whether MaSlutta is playing at halftime or not really doesn't matter to me.

As much as I hate his politics, wouldn’t Mr. Indiana, John Cougar Melloncamp, have been the appropriate halftime show?

I dont think they are all that concerned about football fans enjoying the halftime show. NSync and Britney Spears with Aerosmith? The Black Eyed Peas? New Kids on the Block? Gloria Estefan (2x)? Phil Collins? I dont think of football when I see those names.

Here’s a thought.....I know it’s really radical and out there...

Maybe the children parents can supervise what their children watch on TV during the super bowl !

I know....I know radical concept !

Marching band - what a novel idea!

I started taking my son to high school games this year with those marching bands. Love it.

They used to. I think Grambling was at the first two, and the USMC was at one.

Thats one of the things I like about the college game. You have a band and cheerleaders and the crowd who seem to be in with the flow of the game. In the pros, it just seems more stale. All the music is from the big speakers (and for some reason everyone thinks they need to play Crazy Train at the opening kickoff). The cheerleaders are just dancers, and the fans are so far away from the action. That said, I still like the NFL for the actual football part of it.

I cannot tell you just how much i agree with all of your thoughts, especially your tom brady take. He’ cries like a baby when he gets sacked too often against a good D. Then he starts screaming at his own team mates...

I wont be paying any attention to this game. I dont have a dog in this fight.
I cant devote three plus hours of free time watching a game that has little or no outcome on my life.
Plus the Pats are going to cream the Giants.

“Here’s a thought.....I know it’s really radical and out there...

Every time I have written about this subject over the past few years, this prosaic response, along with “change the channel” comes up.

It betrays the fact that the people who write it didn’t read the column or watch the vid. That’s great - if they were not -commenting- on the topic.

If they DID read the column or watch the vid, they would apare the rest of us from having to read their comment because they would KNOW that I said that is exactly what I DO!

The POINT is that it is not always 100% full-proof. Sometimes in switching back and forth, something imappropriate slips in.

But THIS piece isn’t about free-speech! They are entitled to do whatever they want on their half-time show and they are entitled to run their private BUSINESS into the ground if they want to.

As a consumer, I HAVE A RIGHT to express my opinion about how they run their business, especially when they take what should be a safe and harmless program (morally speaking), SPECIFICALLY target children throughout the year and then violate their innocence with the kind of pornographic performances they have been featuring.

Of COURSE I’m not going to let my sone watch that - AS I SAID IN THE VIDEO. The point of this is to use my rights as a consumer in a capitalist system to speak up and hopefully, one day, make it so that my son can enjoy NFL football the way I did with my father years ago - and not have to leap for the remote every 5-10 minutes, then guess when they are cutting back to the game with clairvoyant precision.

As you can see, I hate that specious response.

“Its easier to blame the world and claim victim status than it is to take an active role in life.”

After reading your trite comment that is entirely unapplicable to what I have propounded - what comes to mind is the old Mark Twain “It’s better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

Chill out bro. My comment was applicable to what Popman said. You definitely have the right to complain about it. And I have the right to make fun of whiners. And that is what we did.

If you are so afraid of switching back to the Super Bowl and letting your “sone” see something that slipped in, then just dont watch it in the first place.

I’m with you Fiji...bring back half-time bands and card displays and get rid of the yapping “experts” who for some reason feel they have to tell us what just happened.

Went to the Boise State - Air Force game in Boise...great half time show.

I think the point is to shove it in the fans’ faces because they can. And, unfortunately, there have not been enough fans burning up the phone lines to the NFL to protest this garbage.

We won’t be watching in our house.

As a consumer your job is to CONSUME. Stock up on beer, snacks and try to forget you’re one or two paychecks away from living on the street.

Got a little room on the credit cards? You could have a big screen t.v. in time to see THE GAME.

Now get busy and consume. Quietly.

I had to listen to Super Bowl I on the radio because it was blacked out in LA. However, some football fans were making "Super Bowl antennas" out of coat hangers so they could get the telecast from San Diego. A newsletter from one of our local rock stations--I believe it was KRLA--described how to make one.

The “script Ohio,” done to the tunes of “Le Régiment de Sambre et Meuse” followed by “Buckeye Battle Cry” is one of the most impressive pregame performances in the sport. Being an avid USC Trojans fan and having been to 15 Rose Bowl games, I have seen it performed many times.
