Fans criticized The Boss because Wal-Mart has been accused of unfair labor practices. Springsteen, on the other hand, has always supported workers’ rights.

The question to ask Springsteen is what, exactly, changed with Walmart from the time he willingly signed the deal, and today?

Of course, nothing has changed. He is just not a very thoughtful man.

I don't need no steenkin' halftime show. I didn't even watch the wardrobe malfunction a few years ago.

I’m doing him a favor right now. I just flipped over to “Cops” for the Halftime Show. I imagine these cop guys are union members. ;o)

Actually, I’m quite stunned that Walmart didn’t immediately clear all of his CD’s off the rack, take the hit on the loss and give Bruce an even larger lesson in how to operate business.

Turned off the Super Bowl till the second half - watching the puppy bowl for 30 minutes. Currently the kittens are on, too bad they are playing music instead of letting us kear kitty sounds - the particular sound of belching out a hairball is an improvement over mister gravel voice. Plus the cats and dogs are more intelligent then “the Boss”.

After I found out what his politcs were, circa 1980. He joined my boycott list.

He’s made nothing but elevator music since 1982. Clarence Clemons, The Big Man, now that’s a musician.

Even if you liked him I wouldn’t buy the CD - we’re watching the halftime show right now and his voice is completely SHOT.
