So being an Eagles fan I don't want any NFC East team to do well, especially not the Giants. Also, I do not want to see any team be deemed the best team of all time and go undefeated and win the super bowl. Plus, Boston has probably been the most successful city in sports this millennium, its time to share. And also I hate their fans almost as much if not more than new york fans. So long story short, worst superbowl ever. I might not even watch.

Who do you want to win?

Me? I dunno. Half of my college is from new york and never shut up about it, so screw them. And my roommate is a cocky boston sports fan, so screw that too. I might boycott the superbowl this year.

If I have to choose a team to win, I'm always going to choose whomever isn't the Patriots, even if it means putting my half-hearted support behind the Giants. Most of my friends are fucking Patriots fans, and I'm sick of their asses talking about how a bunch of cheaters comprises the "best team ever".

Growing up in the Iladelph all my life, I've come to truly hate the Giants and Cowboys. Going to Penn State I've come to hate the Steelers. Being a non-patriot football ban, I've grown to loathe the Patriots. As much as it kills me to do it, I'm going to have to hope the Giants win. And that sounds awful.

It's just so awful knowing that 2 weeks from now I'm going to be very very very upset that the Giants lost. Wow.

I'm not passionate about football in the slightest, but fuck the Patriots. Green Bay was the only team I liked for whatever reason.

The worst NFL team would easily beat the best non-NFL team. The point is that anyone in the world can play in the NFL.

the world series of baseball is pretty poorly named, baseball is popular in a lot of places now. Is it popular at all in europe? Or is that replaced by cricket or something. I wish soccer was big in america, i love soccer, but the MLS is pretty dull.

I think it's very tactless.

The primera division from spain or the premier league from england are probably the best leagues in the world of football, but they don't use hyperboles or try to claim that the team who wins are the best...

And still, only teams from america.

Why not just call it the NFL champions, that is what it is, and still counts as something big, why drive it to excess and say WORLD CHAMPIONS.

Anyways, i rooted for the chargers....

Eh, it's pretty easy for the NFL to declare themselves the best league in the world, as there are no other competing leagues.

Oh, by the way, GO GIANTS!

the patriots were caught with a video camera on the sideline video taping the other coaches giving signals which were calling plays. Than they could look at the signals and at the play afterwards and know which signal means what. So the next time they play that team they know what plays they are going to run when they are going to run it.

So I agree that I this is the worst super bowl ever. Many years in the past I've been disappointed with the match-ups because I had extreme-apathy for both teams. That was boring, because obviously I want to see my favorite team (The Eagles) win, and since that never happens, I'd like to see a team I like win. Another option is seeing a team I hate lose.

This year there are two teams I hate, and whoever wins, I lose. Before I was kinda interested in seeing the Patriots have a perfect season, but that was when it was a vaguely possible future. Now its real and I'm remembering how much I hate the Patriots and how I don't want them to have success. Unfortunately, the only team that can stop them from their perfect season is my absolute least favorite team in the NFL. I fucking hate the New York Giants, and all New York teams of every sport (except for some reason I'm okay with The Jets. Probably because they suck and I never hear any annoying New Yorkers talk about them).

So yeah, its either watch my most hated team win the superbowl, or watch a team I hate do whats never been done and clinch their place in history as the first team to go 19-0.


PS I hate the Ms. Universe competition its so poorly named

Oh, and if anyone really gets angry over this, holy shit.

I have it with sports like i have with a movie, i might laugh or get scared or some other thing where i live myself into the action, but in the end....it's just entertainment.

I agree with everything you just said.

But yeah, it is poorly named, but until a non-earthling shows themselves to be a potential competitor in the competition, I'm not gonna care. Same way with the superbowl, as far as I know, no non-NFL team compares to even the worst NFL team.

That's considered cheating? I'd just call it "observation", and I'd expect all other teams to do the same. In fact I'd say it's unprofessional if they don't do it. It's like not studying the rival team and not preparing the game in advance.

Yes its cheating. Its observant for a coach to study the opponents plays, and smart to come up with a game plan to try and take advantage of the other team's play style. But what play a team is about to run has to be a secret, or else its always going to be easy to defend it, and the team is going to get crushed. If both teams knew what play was being played on every down, football would be incredibly boring, the mental aspect would be diminished and every play would simply be a battle of who can run faster.

And when you video tape the opposing team, you then have the ability to study the rival team and prepare in advance for the next time you play them.

It's naive to think that they don't put alot of careful planning into each of their plays.
