    Baffling, isn't?

    But I'm not an NFL team GM so what do I know?

    IIRC it happened around the time they ousted Jerry Reese and brought in Dave Gettleman and Pat Schurmer.

    They decided to let Spags go as he was from the "old regime". Gettleman was an absolute clown and did massive amounts of damage to the Giants franchise.

    I lost a lot of respect for Mara and Tisch when they allowed Gettleman to stay on as long as they did.

    This was a news Header "Super Bowl most-watched U.S. program ever, averaging 123.4 million viewers"

    I figure 123 million of those were Swifties....

    On a personal level, I'm stoked about her involvement in the NFL.

    Both of my daughters have essentially ignored football completely.

    My younger daughter is a fan of Taylor and my older daughter likes a few songs, but doesn't consider herself a "fan".

    A lot of their female friends in school though are now into watching football and have been talking about it a lot in school.

    So, now my daughters actually like to sit down and watch a game, even non Chiefs games.

    It has been a lot of fun watching them get into the game.

    I really don’t know why people rip on Taylor? Including my wife and son. Not my type of music but I can recognize talent and I respect that. She writes all her own songs and donates to charity.
    The superbowl was exciting, down to the wire. Don’t care for either team. But I respect talent and coaching. I wanted to see some fresh faces in the superbowl. Lions vs Ravens.
    Some of the commercials were great. Some not do much.
    Peace. D

    ^^^^^My guess is it has something to do with her views on politics. Not my type of music but her concerts seem to be popular.

    My daughter really likes her, in fact she was at a friend's place during the SB and she said they watched some it. Something that would never happen at our house as we are not football fans what so ever.

    I don't see where Taylor is loud about her views on politics, IMO she stays pretty quiet about it. I would say she is more involved with the politics within her business/s than government..

    I’m old enough to remember a time when the NFL - and the Super Bowl specifically - were damn near 100% A-political. The players, coaches, advertisers and commentators kept politics OUT of the game. In fact, events like the Super Bowl were where folks went to GET AWAY from politics.

    Not so much any more… sad.

    Come on dude, don't be silly. Nothing is apolitical, and the NFL certainly never was. The political agenda was simply assumed and hidden. That's actually the most dangerous kind of political agenda...

    As for Taylor, she is a decent musician (I can pick up my guitar and play any of her songs by ear in about a minute), but she is really good at her craft, which is writing songs that connect with her audience and being an incredible entertainer. My wife and daughter loved her show. My wife did musical theater and vocal performance in college, and she came away very impressed by the show (not her voice or the musicianship necessarily, but the quality of the performance).

    And no, TSwift is not particularly political. She did endorse Biden in 2020, but she didn't make a big deal about it. She mostly just does her thing...

    I didn't notice anything political about the Super Bowl, maybe some of the commercials?

    I'm not sure as I really haven't paid any attention to SB commercials in a few years as they just got really lame.

    It was quiet/tame this year IMO, the only political commercial I saw was the Kennedy commercial..

    To be clear, I did not watch either - I caught all the tidbits I know from various news sources.

    I mostly gave up on the NFL when they started changing the game - (instant?)replays, no more hitting, “football moves”, etc. then the death nail for me was the taking a knee for the anthem - a bunch of entitled millionaires signaling how bad they have it in the freest country on the planet… and to be clear, the NFL is NOT the only league to suffer this nonsense…

    Yeah that one was a head scratcher for sure...my son turned to me and asked 'Is that the crazy Kennedy?' to which I replied 'pretty sure...'. But maybe I am wrong. I guess I don't care enough to Google what it was about.

    After JFK, they were all a little off their rockers. JFK Jr. seemed to be ok until he decided he could fly.
