    Pretty weak union, though.

    Best comment about those ads came from a friend of mine on facebook who said debating bud light vs miller lite as a better beer is like arguing over whether Milli or Vinilli was the better singer.
    There was a corn growers convention down in the States today and Pete Coors showed up with a semi full of Coors Light. I imagine he was a pretty popular guy. Apparently reps from Anheuser-Busch apologized to the Corn Growers Association and wanted to speak at the convention but were told not to bother.

    That's great

    Check out what these guys were protesting. In case anyone is wondering what the heck I was searching for to find this, James Duthie was at Super Bowl and mentioned it on the Jay and Dan podcast I was listening to

    Yes, there was also a 30 % increase in streaming views.

They have their issues but we heard a lot of the "NFL is on it's way down narrative" but this year showed that's not the case.
    I think a crack is showing, nothing more. They've absorbed a lot of hits in the last few years. Players on video beating up women, a very popular movie detailing their CTE coverup, and the Kaepernick/kneeling thing, and the divide that caused. Their dealing with it, and are obviously still popular, but as I said, I do think a crack is forming, when you start to hear about unsold tickets for games and things like that.

    Hang on, I'll go ask them.

    When they can't get decent talent for the halftime show anymore, and the artists cite very specific reasons for not doing it, that the league might have to start looking at themselves. Be it Kaepernick, or domestic violence, or CTE or anything. Not 100% sure, but I think I saw a pretty decent amount of empty seats along the upper ring of the stadium during the game as well. The cameras obviously didnt go up there very often. They still are a very powerful organization, but that may be starting to slip a little bit.
    I read somewhere that MLS Soccer had 3000 more fans for a game in December in the same stadium. Apples and oranges when it comes to cost of tickets of course, but telling. Almost 5000 short of capacity for the SB.
