    Who Doesn't Care Or Won't Watch the Super Bowl?

    I'm curious as to whether there are people that pay no attention to the NFL?

    I plan on going for a snowmachine ride and skipping the event.

    Not I said the fly! I am sad that football is over.

    Will watch the game, but I hate all the pre-game and post-game crap.

    The only Super Bowl recently that I didn't watch/didn't care about was Baltimore v NYG. Tonight is very interesting with the whole 19-0 thing, controversal Patriots, Eli, Hobbs, etc. Plenty to peak my interest.

    It's the last NFL game for several months.

    I'd watch the Raiders vs. Dolphins if it was the last game of the season.

    Put a chunk of money on the game, then you'll care.

    Re: Who Doesn't Care Or Won't Watch the Super Bowl?

    This is finally a Super Bowl I can care about... and probably the first time in years I will be in it for both the game and the commercials.

    Sad to say, but true.

    Re: Who Doesn't Care Or Won't Watch the Super Bowl?

    I would think most Iowans, while still be greatly interested because it's the SuperBowl, could likely give a rat's azz about the two teams playing. I know that is the case with me.

    I could care less about either team, but throw a couple of friendly wagers on the game, then you have a reason to watch, some of those prop bets on the game are hilarious!

    Will watch off and on...not into the Pros much.... Football was over when the last bowl game finished.

    Re: Who Doesn't Care Or Won't Watch the Super Bowl?

    I am addicted to NFL football, can watch it anytime anywhere. But I think the football is too much spectacle and too often not enough game. They take a lot of the aspects of the game out with the Superbowl. Everyone has 2 weeks to rest so injuries are rarely a factor, no weather, no homefield. I will still watch, but as far as football goes I'd rather watch a playoff game hands down.

    Of course this all gets thrown out if my Broncos are playing in the Super Bowl, then it's the best game ever.

    And as a side note, who's idea was it to have a red carpet with f-ing Ryan Seacrest at the god damn Super Bowl?!?!?!!

    I wasn't going to bet today, but I just wagered 60k to make it a little more interesting to watch.

    I'm not really a fan of pro sports.
    but i will watch off and on just bc of hobbs and it would be cool to see the pats go undefeated. Other than that, i could care less.
