2. There is talk around New Orleans this morning of holding our own Super Bowl Parade

on game day. No one in New Orleans will watch the Super Bowl this year.

5. Be cool to play the Chiefs!

I'd watch that instead of the Patriots for sure!

8. Yep. I actually thought the Chiefs would win the Super Bowl this year.

I would certainly watch if the Chiefs had made it.

No interest in the 'Cheater Bowl'.

7. i'm sure not watching!

greetings from the bywater lisa.

the saints should not have been in that position, but there is no doubt that a pass interference call would have, at least, run out the clock.

3. yes, we were.

there are already several conspiracy theories involving the possibility of low ratings for a saints vs chiefs super bowl or the effort to sell the citizens of los angeles on building a new stadium. and, naturally, the referees could have received an offer they could not refuse.

why wasn't the play reviewed? aren't all plays inside 2 min warning reviewed?

6. Nor is pass interference when it is called.

 

Neither before or after the 2 minute warning.

9. I have believed for a very long time

that professional sports are rigged. Perhaps not every game, but enough of them to make sure the money flows in the direction that those in power prefer it to flow.

This is one of several reasons why I gave up on them, don't watch and not interested.

10. I agree totally w/ you. If they aren't rigged from the perspective of a criminal manner, e.g., ...

gambling, they're rigged based upon the huge salaries some teams pay their players. The other teams don't have near the resources to match these huge salaries.

I won't support this type of sports since the money is insane, and I think it taints the game. There are far better choices for me and my viewing habits then pro sports. Who basically are destroying these sports, all for a buck.
