    Many of my friends didn’t even make the first half before turning it off ... wonder how that plays into ratings.

    And yep, that game sucked ...

    I called this the "Not So Super Bowl". aka the Super Bomb. Even the commercials were boring.

    Was planning to catch it but circumstances intervened plus I thought: last year's game was an absolute knockout, maybe the best I can remember. What were the odds of this year's beating that? (PS: I don't watch the commercials.)

    Aww crap! I meant the year before last. Completely forgot about last year's game. I guess that says something.

    The game against ATL was awesome. Even the Lady Gaga show was very good.

    $5.25 million per 30 second ad. If the ratings drop next year, I'll bet that starts going backwards.

    I know I didn't help the ratings any.

    During the playoffs? There were bad calls all year. Which is why I didn't watch - seems the NFL is either going scripted like WWE or else the officials are so incompetent that skill and drive mean nothing anymore anyway. It's one thing to lose to a superior opponent, but it's another thing entirely to lose because of a moron in a zebra suit.

    I'm guessing the Rams being in the game didn't really cause a lot of interest. They don't really have a fan base to speak of and in California I would imagine soccer is more popular.

    I dunno, different type of fans. It seems (in the United States) soccer is more for people who play the sport and football more for people who watch it.

    I came in 4th quarter 2 minute warning. No way I'd miss Victoria on Masterpiece.

    Even for the Pats fans, it was a boring game.

    According to a friend of mine (in the sports marketing business), ratings for sports has been declining for many years. Probably replaced by internet-based entertainment.
