The game still had a great market share. 
I grew up watching Doomsday, Purple People Eaters, the Steel Curtain, and Butkus.
So i know how to enjoy a great defensive game. Wussy football is fun too.
 Until your Goat is one and done.

i didnt think the defense was very entertaining this time.  the patriots just had the rams figured out, and didnt make many big plays expect for the interception near the end.  thats when i turned it off too

 

the rams defense was good but you cant win if you dont show up on offense these days

I watched the old Karate Kid I & II that I got from the flea market for $3 with Ralph Macchio and the rest instead of the SB. Probably a good thing, had a lot of fun seeing an actual great duo of movies. Honestly just sick of the Pats in the SB, and the Rams being an LA team now as well didn't make me want to see them win that bad either. Just like the world series last year to me. Absolute garbage.

I had it on the Weather Channel watching worst winter storms lmao for about 80% of the game. I would flip now and then just to check the score.

Not surprising, people are puke sick

of the Patriots.

No I bet if it had been Saints v Pats... or as peoplemlike to do Brady v Brees it would been a top rated SB.. the problem is the Rams have like 5 fans!  The SB sounded like a Pats Home Game!! It was just sad!

I believe it would have been viewed by a lot more if the Saints were in it.

 

I read the viewership in Louisiana is normally around 50% and it was something  like  26% This year.

yeah it was a boring game with unpopular teams and a lame half time show

I hated the halftime show.  But then again I am not normally a fan of it.

 

I did like Bruno Mars, Paul McCartney and of course Prince.

 

Those are the only 3 that I remember being enjoyable.

I DVRed the SB and deleted it once I found who won it!!! Did not watch a single second, went to the movies instead and enjoyed my evening. :) 

 

 

Same here. I made a decision after the championship games not to watch the Super Bowl or follow any pre-SB or post-SB coverage. I stayed home and watched a movie and exchanged messages with a friend and my siblings. I heard I did not miss much.

I have this great golf game for my XBOX1. "The Golf Club 2". It has this really cool feature called The Course Designer, which I spend much more time on it than actually playing golf.

Its so good that professional golf course designers use it to make their presentation s for their furure courses. Anyway, thats what I was doing during the Cheater bowl. I worked on my golf course.

I heard about this on golic and wingo.. if you think about it.. it was just a home game for the Patriots. The Rams have no fans anymore since moving.

 

Saints fans weren't watching..

And AFC fans weren't watching.. 

 

I admit I watching the whole paint drying session. Just for the sliver of hope. Lol but it's okay. I'll probably skip Superbowl 54 between the Patriots and poor opponent.

The announcers were noticing that when the Rams were on offense, the stadium was loud. With the Patriots, it was a lot more quiet. Also, at one point, even thru my TV, I could hear chants of "Brady Brady Brady" in the 4th Q, and the announcers picked it up as well. Yes, a very pro-Patriots crowd, or perhaps should I say an anti-Rams crowd.

Had the Saints been playing, I think they would have had a lot more support. Drew Brees is such a great guy, and I know the city of New Orleans would love to bring the Lombardi back one last time before Brees hangs it up.

They were chanting for Brady. And 3rd downs even featured the freaking Gillette horn... poor rams. But again why move to LA..

 

The Saints would've had a much bigger following seeing as they're so close. But that would've * Falcons fans off I'm sure. Just what a shame the NFL season ended like that..

But aren't the majority of SB tickets given/bought by corporate America or somerhing? Could be wrong I guess. I find it odd that the vast majority of fans from supposedly different regions were rooting for Brady and Pats when the vast majority of people outside of Boston and ESPN Hate them. 

:scratch:

I, too, thought it was odd to say the least.

 

I was surprised at the show of support for NE at the stadium.    It was like they were at a home game.

I honestly have no clue..  I thought the same thing. Tom Brady was booed very loudly at Superbowl 50 when they brought the former MVP's out. To chanting "Brady".. Perhaps things have changed in a few short years.

I doubt anything has changed the people's hate, disgust, and veiw of him and his cohorts. The only logical thing to think is that they did a great job of distributing SB tickets to known pat fans. Maybe to assure that what you said happened at SB 50 doesn't happen again. 

You never know what these people stay up all night thinking, planning, and scheming. Lol

Like you said last week, maybe your kids will live long enough to see their cheating dynasty end. haha

I remember him being booed. It was a bit Startling, but he was very obviously loudly booed.

 

I tend to agree with @LJpalmbeacher2. Somehow tickets got distributed to a large majority of Pats fans this year.

I think that was the Super Bowl between the Broncos vs. Panthers?   There probably wouldn't have been any Pats or Brady fans at that game.  haha

 

Of course there would be a lot of Brady fans in a game featuring the Pats.

 

There's your difference.

There are always "fans" that follow only teams that win. When the winning ends they bail. The people of Louisiana especially New Orleans boycotted watching the game so that had an impact on the ratings. I watched the game and will watch every SB until I die.

The superbowl itself was entertaining for any true football fans. The people who say it was boring are the ones who tune in to a "couple" games a year and just think every game should and is going to be an offensive fiasco. 

 

I think the main reasons for the 10 year low is 2 things. 

 

1- Everyone is sick of the Pats, and it is quite sad that in almost 20 years only a very select few NFL minds have figured out how to beat Belicheck.  Either BB is on another level, or the coaching talent in the league has just gone downhill since the 90s.

 

2- The refs seem to be determining more and more outcomes as the years go by. That non call specifically in the Rams Saints game was partly why i didn't tune in, and IMO had the Saints went to the SB they would have beat the Pats.

To the first point, it was a battle of the defenses for sure, but it was still somewhat boring.

 

And to the second point :agree:without a doubt!

I don't think it has anything to do with the Pats. With the rules and the way the game is being officiated today, the quality of the game has gone downhill, fast. I would hope the league and the owners take a long, hard look at the game today as compared with games in the past. It's not all safety concerns.

I thought the overall NFL viewership was up this year.  

 

Just the Super Bowl viwership down.  No?

I'm not sure that the number of viewers equates to the quality of the game. Supply creates its own demand.

    • There are countless reports on it over the years.  The Bengals ownership has made it known they don’t want to spend money beyond what they have too.  Again this is not news or controversial.
    • We have the bestest owner, the bestest GM, and bestest coach.... EVER.  To say we don't is outrageous and you should turn in your fan card.   Yes, that was sarcasm. Too many people hang too hard on owner-speak, GM-speak, and coach-speak.   In all seriousness, I do really like Irsay though. 
    • I guess I don't have the inside information about the Bengals organization that you do to determine if they go above and beyond to try and win.  I can see from the outside they are not very good at it, but that does not mean it is from a lack of trying.
    • 10.55 equates to roughly 4.4 Using 200 is way to flawed as it's long speed. 100 is a little better, but also has the long speed factor.  x/2.54 + 2x ~ 100m time
    • Yep, their DC Wink Martindale had to go blitz happy against Mahomes and it hurt them. They probably realized that if they need to just rush four and bring pressure, they had to improve their interior pressure and hence this move.    It also increases Lamar Jackson's room for error against playoff teams like the Chiefs and Titans mainly. Plus, 2 divisional games vs Steelers are still on deck, the move thus makes a lot of sense. The price they paid was pretty stiff for someone in a contract year but they believe they are on the cusp of a SB appearance.
