Don’t you hate that week between the last Sunday of the playoffs and the Super Bowl?
Technically it’s considered ‘Pro Bowl Week’, although I think most can agree that there is nothing very ‘Pro’ about it, and Week should probably be spelled ‘Weak.’
To break up the doldrums, Wade and Ryan bring another podcast prior to the Super Bowl called ‘Super Wait’, as that’s what we seem to do before the big game kicks off in LA on Sun Feb 13th.
Here’s the podcast for your dirty ears.
Among some of the things the guys discuss in this one.
So it looks like London will be getting 3 games in 2022, with one game being played at Wembley (Jags) and 2 to be played in Tottenham.
Rumours are already rife, but it looks like it will be the Saints snagging one of the home games in North London. Which is nice since the team is hot garbage compared to what they were a few years ago.
Munich is the city for Germany going forward, with whispers that the game there could be between the Bears and Patriots.
Most of the owners are white, most of the players are black.
The Rooney Rule was supposed provide a transparent hiring policy for black coaches and staff, but it seems to pay little more that lip service to a major discrimination gap.
Brian Flores is going scorched earth on the league, as well as any potential job offers he might have going forward.
Is it worth it?
Hell yeah., if it kicks the owners in the teeth to see progress being made where there has been surprisingly little over the past few decades.
Tom Brady is finally retired thanks to Shifty Adam Shefter and his need to break news.
Players don’t usually retire during the playoffs as its a sign of disrespect to the guys still playing, which is why it seemed odd that TB12 would announce this after losing.
Shefter shafted the press, causing the Bucs and Tom’s agent to try to get a hold of the story on their own terms.
Will this leave us with an angry Tom Brady who might decide to play a season of spite?
Let’s hope so.
What happens in Vegas, ends up in jail.
That’s what the new statement should be after another player gets sucked into the legal vortex that is Vegas.
Alvin Kamara performed his version of ‘Stomp’ on a casino patron, and now finds himself finding a Las Vegas lawyer like many players before him.
If you’re a player heading to Nevada for a party, shouldn’t you really be on your best behaviour there?
If you’re going to drink, don’t drive.
And if you’re going to kick someone in the head, wear fuzzy slippers.
London Super Bowl Parties
Where are you watching the Super Bowl on Sunday?
Our locations are quite full, but there are a few spots left in Clapham and the Princess Alex.
Here’s a link to the Alex
A word of warning if you’re heading to watch the Super Bowl at a London/ UK location.
If they don’t show the NFL during the regular season, it’s probably not going to be a good time.
There are a lot of chancer bars hoping to scoop in NFL fans, without having any appreciation of the game.
The amount of horror stories we hear from people show up to places who either forgot to get a late license, don’t know which channel it’s on, or force ‘American food’ on folks that is neither American nor food is sad.
Enjoy the game, but be wary of the imposters.
Enjoy the big game, we will have our preview article out this week!
