    Super Bowl Circus. It's a useless farcical spectacle that lacks any athletic ability unlike rugby and ice hockey and soccer. It will never ever be a globally accepted activity as has being tried many times by the NFL. But big corp America makes sure it stays the # 1 sport because of all the time outs to help push their products. Blinded by the spectacle our buds to the south have been

    My God, some people would suck the life out of anything, wha? Nothing better to complain about....it's a bloody football game, not a G8 summit. So NFL football played in America (Oooh...he used the dirty A word...) is not newfie enough for some people? Neither is Olympic ski jumping but it's still exciting as hell to watch and a lot of people like it!

    Did you know there's a touch-football league in the city? There's a HUGE NFL following in NL, consisting mostly of people who are aware there is another world beyond our shores. Not much lacrosse played in NL either (compared to hockey, baseball/ softball, curling, golf...) but if you're a sports fan and you ever get the chance, trust me, go see a NLL game like the Toronto Rock- it'll be the best $50 you ever spent.

    Don't be so closed minded, byes. You might get to actually experience life once in a while...

    LOL...football requires much more skill and strategy then ice hockey. Also it is not only America that likes football...there is such thing as the CFL which is the Canadian Football League ...it's only here in NL that we don't know much about football ...but then again NL don't know about a lot of things outside the rock. I am a born and raised Newfie and I Love football. Each to there own.

    I prefer rugby and we should develop it a lot more the world over: it is far less expensive to buy equipment for and so is far more accessible to kids and adults of various socio-economic backgrounds. Personally, I was more interested in the France-Scotland rugby game in Edinburgh today: had a fun time watching a bit of it.

    Let's stop being slaves to the NFL advertising and media machine.
