I'm not really a big NFL fan, but it was nice to see a great defensive game, and I'm glad Manning won two super bowls.

Biggest highlight:

Queen Bey.  Unfortunately she shared the stage with Bruno Mars and that other guy (?). I think she had less airtime than both of them.  Great dancing though.

also:

I surprisingly liked Lady Gaga's National Anthem.

Defense wins championships. 

I'm tired of people like Lady Gaga or even Bleeding Gums Murphy using the National Anthem as a way to showcase their chops. Just sing it as written and quit trying to make yourself the spotlight. One of teh many reasons I prefer a band to play it.

I thought she sang it pretty clean, that may be the best I've ever heard her sing (not that I'm an astute listener of Lady Gaga).  Also, bands can drag out a song just as needlessly as the voice...it's merely using a different instrument.

Poor Scam didn't want to get hurt diving on the ground to recover his own fumble. It's not like it's the Super Bowl or anything. What a joke. But keep dabbin' Scam. It's all about YOU baby!

While it was great to see Ted Ginn have a nice game, Cam Newton was the most effective offensive player in the game.  I think at the end he was rattled, but he was the best offensive player on the field.

Your hypocrisy is showing. ;)

A few years ago, when the Americans blew a huge lead and lost the Ryder Cup to the Europeans, you berated us for focusing on how the Americans choked and not giving the European team credit for an historic comeback. Now look at what you're doing. The Denver Broncos just won the Super Bowl, but you're not giving any credit at all to Peyton Manning, Von Miller, John Elway, et al., for what they did to upset the mighty Panthers in the biggest game of the season. Instead, you're taking advantage of this opportunity to continue to disparage an athlete who had the misfortune of graduating from your team's arch-rival Auburn.

I'm glad Peyton got his second ring, but I'm pretty sure John Elway could have come out of retirement and played a more effective game.
Sometimes, though, it's good to acknowledge how one's capabilities have been diminished by age, recognize the team one has around him, and play to the strengths of that team. For once, Peyton could only take on the role of a game manager (i.e., just don't turn the ball over), and, with the exception of the pick and the fumble (which Cam matched and even exceeded), he did an excellent job in that role. Not the Peyton Manning of old, but the old Peyton Manning doing what his team needed him to do to win.

Having taken a closer look at Manning's SB stats, though, I have to recant much of what I said above. What else can one say about the worst performance in Super Bowl history by the winning QB except that he stunk. But on the plus side, the Broncos weren't led to expect much better from him and really didn't need much better from him with the way they played defense yesterday.

I think it's clear Peyton is suffering from post-concussion symptoms with his Budweiser and Papa Johns endorsements.

I don't think I've mentioned anything about Cam during his pro career until now. But I could be wrong about that. You obviously keep a personal record of all my posts, which is sort of disturbing actually. But if that's how you like to spend your time, then have fun.  ;)

But now we know the real reason why Cam bailed: He heard Denver's Chris Harris explain close by that their gameplan was to make Carolina prove it could throw the football (which obviously the Panthers did not do well on Sunday).

Here's what Harris said: "Load the box, force y'all to throw the ball. Can you throw the football? That was the gameplan."

Yeah, I saw that. Bovine excrement. Scam wasn't worried about how the opposition felt when he was dabbing in their faces and taunting them with his Superscam gestures. Now we're supposed to feel sorry for him because he had to listen to the winning team talk about how they kicked his ****? Man up, own up, and grow up!

This article may give some insights into the real reason why Cam Newton stormed out of his post-game press conference: http://www.foxsports.com/nfl/story/super-bowl-50-cam-newton-bails-on-press-conference-due-to-chris-harris-carolina-panthers-020816

Quote
But now we know the real reason why Cam bailed: He heard Denver's Chris Harris explain close by that their gameplan was to make Carolina prove it could throw the football (which obviously the Panthers did not do well on Sunday).

Here's what Harris said: "Load the box, force y'all to throw the ball. Can you throw the football? That was the gameplan."

Yeah, I saw that. Bovine excrement. Scam wasn't worried about how the opposition felt when he was dabbing in their faces and taunting them with his Superscam gestures. Now we're supposed to feel sorry for him because he had to listen to the winning team talk about how they kicked his ****? Man up, own up, and grow up!

Profanity removed from post

You can make your arguments without resorting to such base profanities. Don't do this again.  -PtA


Just for the record I didn't use profanity, as you know. But if my use of symbols was inappropriate then I apologize.

When you use symbols to spell an obvious profanity, then yes, you used a profanity. You're also arguing publicly with a moderator action, which is not to be done, as you know. If you wish to continue arguing with the modification I made to your post, then PM me. I will not tolerate further argument here.

When there's no other argument to be made, you can always resort to mocking my salutation of peace. Cheap and petty, but if it makes you feel better.
You don't get it, do you? Your "salutation of peace" means nothing when you're spewing such vile, cheap and petty hatred.

Whoa, dudes, easy does it.
Sportsman like taunting is no more than a micro-aggression. In football there CAN be such a thing as THAT.
Take a deep one....

Chill, dude! 8) There's no need for you to mediate here.
