The stupid sh*t the NFL happily allows during the SB halftime shows alone more than validates my decision to invest my time in baseball only.

M.I.A. got what he/she/it wanted.

Nobody knew who he/she/it was before yesterday.

There is no such thing as bad publicity for attention whores.

MIA, whatever it is, is sure to be lionized among the perverts and savages who celebrate the coarsening, and loss of civility and decency in American society.

She edgy. She hip. She stickin’ it to the Man.

I have seen “some” of every Super Bowl. However, I have yet to watch a complete one in years and years. I simply got sick of the 900 stupid commercials and after 2 weeks of non-stop Super Bowl programming on every channel, to include cartoon channel it seems, I am sick of it. I watched part of the first half last night and turned it off. I later came back and watched the last half of the final drive that NY won. Like an NBA game. Miss 9/10th of the game and watch the final 2 minutes and you have seen the game. I have not watched a Super Bowl half time show in 30 years or more, since they started putting on the crap they put on now.

I don’t understand what all the fuss is about.

What do you expect from a young Whoopi Goldberg.

At least she didn’t fart.

Coming half-time shows:

1) Orgies
2) Human sacrifice

I don't want an apology from anybody. Apologies are cheap, especially from those who don't offer them with sincerity.

The best thing to do is to not watch NBC or listen to...whatever her stupid handle is.

These type of offensive gestures could stop in a minute. Up front the NFL could have in their performance contract that any guestures of this type would null all payments for their performance - I am sure these bimbos are not going to forfeit a few grand.

A good man like Rush can’t be in an ownership group but they put trash like this on at halftime. Hordonna and Janet Jackass and whoever the hell this MIA is . . . nice call Goodell. No wonder your POS game is losing interest amongst the consumer groups that advertisers and franchises crave. Let the PC crowd support your increasingly overpriced, underperforming, low class game.

Excellent idea. As it stands now, it is just a hyper-inflated opportunity for the no-standards-crowd to push the "entertainment" envelope a little further, including a scheduled apology for the next day.

MIA middle finger to us during the halftime show is pretty much reflective of what the newsroom of NBC,along with some at NBC Sport, has been doing to conservatives for 40 years or so.

Why should we be surprised.

Boy, it sure must be fun living around your house. Ever wonder why you've never been invited to a Super Bowl party?

You sure about that statement?

"The Nielsen Co. said Monday that an estimated 111.3 million people watched the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots on Sunday night. That narrowly beat the 111 million who watched Green Bay’s win over Pittsburgh last year."

YOU may not have watched it but over 111.3 million others did. That's a lot of beer and chips and wings........

Yeah, but half-time is a good time to replenish snacks and such, visit the bathroom, take out the trash, look outside at the weather...etc.

There are a myriad of more interesting things to do than watch some washed-up “celebrity” showing the world what kind of idiot they are...*LOL*

The NFL knew ahead of time what she was like. Both her and Madonna. Of course the NFL wanted some sort of controversy and that’s what they got. Bought and paid for. BTW, it was the worse halftime performance ever.

Since you were busy replenishing the snacks, going to the bathroom, taking out the trash and looking out the window, by your own admission you did not watch the half-time show.

Since you did not see it, why do you feel you are qualified to comdemn something you did not observe?

I love the completely unbiased and objective comments of my fellow FReepers.........

How do you know, there was so much noise. Maybe it did it in time with the big bass pounding. And there was a lot of smoke/gas during the show.

MIA thrives on stuff like that. She is no doubt pleased with herself because it will give her even more name recognition and street cred as an anti-establishment rebel.

And look at the irony of this. Madonna has stated she wanted this to be the opportunity for her to make a comeback as a "family" type of entertainer. Instead everybody is talking about a minor ding-a-ling flipping the bird. So Madonna is still categorized with the smut and sleaze. I would love listen to her in private these last few hours. I think her language would be much worse than what MIA is supposed to have also said when flipping off the crowd.

I agree.

I simply shut down the sound during the half times, since I tune in to watch the game, not the BS.

On the other hand, watching my patsies lose, perhaps I have things inverted.

These so-called entertainers perform under legal contract. The NFL lawyers should go to court against her contract violations. Further, the NFL should drop these stupid half-time shows that only distract from the championship game. Frankly, I’m sick of these ‘shows’.

The last several SuperBowl half time shows really sucked pondwater.

The performers were poorly organized, poorly rehearsed, not very well choreographed, singing 30 year old songs (lip-synching,..no singing), with incredibly incompetent dancing.

A few of the street performers had some potential, but they might as well have hired a couple of college kids juggling oranges for the talent displayed.

Madonna’s entrance looked like a gaggle of metrosexuals on xstal meth.

It is obvious somebody storyboarded the performance, and that is about as far as they got. They should’ve just stuck to a PC generated cartoon.

Top that off with insult upon insult to anybody’s presence, and they simply perform no socially redeeming value.

Why would anybody waste buying anything from NFL or their teams when this is the most the entire league can muster?

What a debacle.

Carrie Underwood and Steven Tyler on the CMT channel the night before was 10 times better. Would have been a fantastic super bowl half time show....

So this is family entertainment during a football game? Girls thrusting their crotches into the air? And they’re worried about her flipping the bird? It’s crude and vulgar, apparently just like the rest of the show.

My wife could care less about sports. Just because I refuse to worship at the feet of big TV sports does not make my life boring. There are actually other things in life besides watching 112 hours of super bowl coverages and knowing how many times Brady went to the toilet on Thursday.
