Default Anyone feel this way?

Ok so i've been folowing the media around SB XLI and to tell you the truth I'm pretty disgusted by it. To me the media is making the suber bowl into the PEYTON MANNING bowl and not a contest between two teams that made it to the big show to see which TEAM is the best. I find it kind of absurd in some ways about how they are basically show casing the event around one guy.

What do you have so say about it?

If anything, it's the Tony Dungy vs Lovie Smith Bowl. I've seen more stories and coverage pertaining to those two compared to Peyton Manning finally getting to a Super Bowl. At least from what I've noticed.

Eitherway, I'm sure many (outside Steeler nation) were saying the same last season when all we heard was "Jerome is going back home".

what i like best about the tony/lovie bowl coverage is that them being black has taken a back seat to how they are both strongly convicted Christians who wear their faith on their sleeves, and their soft demeanor, nice guy coaching styles. i think ive heard just about as much of the fact that they dont yell at their players or curse, as them being black.

I haven't listened to the media since like Monday afternoon. So the last thing I heard was it was more about two black coaches that used to work together.

I haven't paid much attention to the sports media this past week. Tough maybe I will in a few hours. Comcast is installing my Digital HD cable package today. I'm gonna be watching the big game in High Def!

anyway... This is why I have avoided the sports media. I was already sick of hearing about Manning.

What do you have so say about it?
Thats the deal with QB's - they take alot of heat when it all goes wrong, and alot of the praise when it works out.

Its natural enough for the QB of the favored team to get alot of press - Manning has been a regular season superstar for many years now.

Its fair to say that alot of the talking heads genuinely feel that Manning 'deserves' a ring for his outstanding services to regular season record breaking.

There is obviously a huge market for Peyton Manning (thats what all those adverts show) so it makes sense for the hype to centre around him.

The color of the coaches is like an interesting 'factoid' , an eyebrow raiser and nothing more, it plays no part in what will happen on the field on sunday - Mannings ability (or inability) to produce in the biggest game of the year remains relevant.

I think the Bears will have lost some of the edge of having a bye week.

Just like the Patriots run out of steam against the Colts after the Bolts, I think the Colts may have had trouble in the latter stages of this game were it played a week earlier.

Hopefully it will be a tightly contested game.

This is how I feel about the Super Bowl. Yes Manning is getting a ton of attention. Thats nothing new and I'm use to it anyway since I live in Indiana. But what I have learned from this Super Bowl media week is Marvin Harrison should never talk. He sounds like a whining ho so he should just shut the hell up. But thats nothing new for Harrison also. He always whines how the Pats DB's play to physical.

Plus Devin Hester is another person that should never open his mouth. I heard a interview he did this week. I couldn't even understand one word he said. That great education at the U proves there is no possible way he passed a college class.lol

Oh did you know that both Lovie Smith and Tony Dungy are the first African-American HC's to coach in the Super Bowl. The media just won't let that rest. I understand how important that is for the history of the league. But I don't see skin color and to me they are just great coaches/men.

The more Harrison talks the more it actually puts me off him.

You read those interviews about how he has Sorgi shuttle messages back and forth between him and Peyton and the sideline?

Did you know that he didnt talk to Peyton for something like 3 days after the AFCCG finished this year...as soon as the game finished he was into the locker room and on his way home.

I understand the whole anti-media thing, but not having any time for teammates is divisive and smacks of arrogance.

The guy is a fantastic receiver, some of those plays he makes are amazing , but no-one should confuse him for a team player - he regularly sulks on the sideline if he doesn't see enough ball in a particular game.
