I stayed up all night to watch it and I'm glad I did, the game was good and I thought Steelers are gonna nick it yet again in the last seconds like they did two years ago, but fortunately Packers won in the end...
The whole ceremony before and at halftime drove me nuts, I almost fell asleep waiting for the game, they really over-do it every year and despite all the preparations they fuck it up somehow - Aguilera messed up with the anthem and BEP were awful, I just pressed mute....next year they should invite some real artist like Springsteen....
This was an exciting season and I do hope owners & players reach an agreement for next year...
Yeah the advertising surrounding the game is ridiculous, the champions league final gets more viewings than the super bowl and doesn't advertise as half as much as they do in the states. But it's there tradition and I don't think there going to change it now.
Was a very entertaining game, as you mentioned I didn't think the Packers were going to hold out especially with the experience the Steelers have of nicking a late touchdown in big games.
It's actually quite a fair system to prevent terrible teams from staying like that (although some like Detroit and until recently our friends the Bucs seem incapable of ever improving no matter how many high picks they get). It might seem like a little harsh opn the players concerned but the free agency is pretty vigourous and players have more say them.
Essentially, he goes where he's told, but still has to actually sign a contract. A player could simply avoid the regular draft and wait for the supplemental draft if he really doesn't want to sign for the teams who draft him.
We win together, lose together. We celebrate triumph and endure defeat together. Losses are softened and victories sweetened because we do them together. One team. One religion. One love.
It almost hardly ever happens though. The first palyers that are drafted are paid insane wages, which tends to alleviate the pain! And most teams can turn it around quickly if they have decent management. My beloved Broncos for example. Picked number 2 last night. Highest ever but we'll get back on track and soon. Orange crush baby!!! (Well maybe)

Ahem after many a year of mediocrity Schwartz and Mayhew will get Detroit to the playoffs this year. Mark my words.

cjjagzmoni: Pogba is a good lad minus the showboating..I think at Juventus he had Older players like Pirlo,Chiellini,Marchisio,Bonucci who shout and screams at him so he was more serious at Juve ,We dont have those type of leaders at United to caution him.
