Default Let the Glove Controversy Begin

On ESPN Radio last night, I heard Ben say that he will not be wearing a glove in the Superbowl, due to the fresh footballs, and how slippery they are with the extra decals and paint.

NO glove. I don't think that's a controversy.

Did you mean to say he will be wearing a glove because of the examples you stated. That would make more sense.

I don't care either way as long as he is comfortable. It's not like he will be wearing it on his throwing hand like another QB.

He stated that he normally prefers wearing a glove, but because of the slick balls, will be going without it.

Ah, Ok. I guess that could be a controversy.

I would think the tacky surface of the glove would help, not the opposite.

I thought he didn't like wearing a glove on his throwing hand. I could be wrong.

Kurt Warner wears 2 gloves. How about that controversy?
