Sadly, as Phil mentioned in the video.....a lot of media coverage of the sport, in print, radio and TV, is more entertainment driven, or becomes that due to the person presenting not actually having a football background....so there's a lot of tired, repetitious, simple analysis that occurs. There are so many shows these days on NFL/ESPN that is more about click-baiting and hooping and hollering clowning about. But I remember about 8 years ago or so, most shows were more in-depth analysis and x/o explanations.

At least there's some shows/commentators that give you that insight. AFL is absolutely bereft of any intelligent analysis. Just boofheads shouting over the top of each other.

AFL commentary and its subsequent talking head coverage is the worst in the world. It's beyond atrocious.

& problem is they think theyre so ******* good. How is it even possible someone like Basil Zempilas gets anyone near a sports coverage microphone, even in these 'jobs for the boys' ridden industries, it defies explanation.

No & makes sense but even still the guy is a complete incompetent when it comes to calling footy & his employers must be aware he diminishes their product. I refuse to listen to him call games, it pains me too much.

Kyle Van Noy “couldn’t believe” Rams didn’t try anything different

The Rams’ offense gave the Patriots’ defense a big advantage in Super Bowl LIII by running exactly what New England was expecting.

That’s the word from Patriots linebacker Kyle Van Noy, who said on Pardon My Take that he was shocked by the way the Rams did everything the Patriots had prepared for, and never tried to surprise them by trying something different.

“I couldn’t believe that,” Van Noy said. “They really didn’t do one wrinkle. I was like, ‘What the hell?’ They’ve got so many good players. They’ve got so many things they’ve done all year, and the one play they gave us which was a wrinkle was the [Brandin Cooks] screen that hit for a little bit. And that was it.”

After a long season in which Rams head coach Sean McVay was hailed as the NFL’s next great offensive mastermind, it’s hard to believe he couldn’t come up with anything new in the Super Bowl.

Atlanta is already angling for another Super Bowl

Rarely if ever does a city, in the aftermath of hosting a Super Bowl, declare “nah, we’re good” on the subject of whether that city wants to host another NFL championship game.

Via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Atlanta Sports Council president Dan Corso said that his group has submitted to the NFL a “letter of interest” to host the 2025 (LIX), 2026 (LX), or 2027 (LXI) Super Bowl.

The league already has determined the sites of the next five Super Bowls. LIV will be played in Miami next year, LV goes to Tampa, LVI will land in Los Angeles, LVII will be played in Arizona, and LVIII will happen in New Orleans.

Las Vegas surely will enter the mix at some point, and there’s a belief that (eventually) the rotation will consist of L.A., Miami, New Orleans, and Las Vegas, with a wild-card city like Houston, Phoenix, Dallas, etc. getting roughly every fifth Super Bowl.

In 2017, the NFL ditched the traditional bidding process, shifting instead to a procedure that consists of approaching a target city. This avoids the frustration that flows from preparing a formal bid and losing to another city.

Would love to see a SB played in snow and ice one year....just one!

Players covered in mud or stained with dirt, steam coming off their breaths and body, blood and bandages mixed with white snow and frozen tundra. Ah yes!

Would either keep the corporates/celebs away

The NFL wouldn't want that, it could mean we only see one TD for a whole SB! Or one team scoring only 3 points! NFL wants indoor stadiums to guarantee high scoring games.

We almost got a snowy one at MetLife a few years back, iirc it wasn't until late in the week forecast changed from snow to rain but yeah love to see an icy SB.
