Is the Super Bowl more hype than game?
Initially the focus was about the game. It seems that over the years, the focus has turned to advertising, hype, and the game has become an excuse to make money. Your thoughts.....
I agree with your thoughts. As big as the game itself is, the idea of the Super Bowl and events around and in it are commercial. Look at the week before with all of the media and pre-game hype. The Super Bowl halftime and the outrageously expensive TV commercials are show stoppers.
Everything in the media is about ratings and the money it brings.
I would like to see more about the Football players, coaches and the team than all of the extra.
not lately - the last three games have been phenomenal

I wish they could dial down the hoopla, but I'm afraid the genie is already out of the bottle on this one. I usually like the AFC and NFC championship games more that the super bowl...It's all about the dollar, there's no denying that....
everyone watches the super bowl but its not just for the game either. most people are more interested in the commercials and the movie trailers

I am a big Peyton Manning fan and I would like to see the Broncos do well this year. I just do not know if they have enough talent around Peyton to be competitive. This reminds me when Joe Montana went from the 49ers to the Chiefs. This will be interesting to see how Manning will cap his...

If Eli Manning wins the Super Bowl, does that put him ahead of his brother for the Hall of Fame?
