What I want to know is who is scheduling the winter storm?

I heard a "flash report" on the radio that ticket prices have dropped like $1000.

If it drops to $10, I'll buy, frame it, and hang it on the wall.

If the Patriots were playing current Rams whose quarter back suffered a season-ending injury taking a knee, and I was offered free tickets on the 50 yard line . . . I would not go. Not in those conditions.

I’m getting so tired of hearing about how the NFL could possibly move the Super Bowl to Saturday... or Monday... depending on the weather.

Look, I understand that it might be necessary if Mother Nature decides to drop 2 or 3 feet of snow on New Jersey that weekend. But come on! Didn't you know that when you made the decision to have a Super Bowl in New Jersey?

I'm taking Monday off to watch the Super Bowl on TV here (commercial-free on NHK). It comes on at 8 am Monday here. If they move it to Monday, I won't be able to watch unless I call in sick or something.

I bet you the Miamis, New Orleanses and San Diegos are rooting for an epic blizzard.

The Commissioner is both the smartest and dumbest of commissioners.

This is "dumb."

Was it a "reward" for building a fancy new stadium with taxpayer money?

If so, it has a certain perverse logic from the perspective of the NFL.

It's like the Japanese BBC. No commercials but you have to pay for it if you have a TV.

ETA: If I really want to see the superbowl commercials, I can probably find them on the Internet after the game.

Basically. With the NFL it is "all about the money, boys!" Pushing for 18 game season? Money--do not pay the players any more since they will remove pre-season games. Wanting to have teams play in London? Money. There is even speculation of trying to put a team/division permanently in England. People will recall "NFL Europe" but this would be a "4 r34lz t34mz!" rather than a quasi-minor league. We already have that . . . it is called "Canadian Football."
