    That's actually why I Hate the MLB all-star game. WS HF advantage should be who has the best record. Period. But that's a discussion for the MLB thread, not this one.

    I'm rooting for the Ravens because the thought of ANOTHER team beating us to 6 makes me a little sick.

    apparently Belichick is catching some serious media heat (lawl) for not talking to reporters for CBS after the clock hit 0. Shannon Sharpe labelled it as being a "poor loser". Gotta love that coming from a guy who's highlight reels are littered with his sideline showmanship and being a poor winner and a show off.

    Belichick does need some touch ups with how he handles a few things, but come on, he just lost the AFC title game, do you really think he wants to talk to anybody right then? Considering his post game pressers are super vague anyway.

    Humorous note, Matt Ryan will not play in the pro bowl or dress, or show up...... Next man up......Russell Wilson. Ok seriously I love the guy, but it's just time to can the Pro Bowl for good.

    I think it's more because Belichick doesn't want to be asked about why they haven't had a Super Bowl appearance since the Spygate thing.

    Harbowl is the worst possible outcome for this Super Bowl. I almost don't want to watch the two whiniest coach brothers throwing a tantrum at every call. The only positive from all of it is maybe they'll break out into a fist fight or something. That would be entertainment.

    So last year was just a bad dream? Thank God, I thought the Giants really DID beat us again.

    Not to mention, in my opinion, ravens/49ers was the best case scenario for this year's super bowl.

List of radio shows that I listen to Dan Patrick, Jim Rome, Doug Gottlieb, Mike and Mike, Colin Cowherd, SVP show, Lose Cannons, Jay Mohr, The John Feinstein show,Hill & Schlereth,Freddie Coleman Show, and the V show sometimes if I'm tired of stuff like the Harbowl or the Manti teo shit ill listen to local radio but it's pretty much just about college sports here in Arkansas.

    I would say on avg I listen to about 10 hours of sports radio a day since I get to listen to it at work, on the way to work, on the way back from work and any other time in the car.
    The worst is when they became obsessed with Favre and Barry Bonds. The excruciating amount they overdid those stories was unbearable. Depending on what the hot topic is or who just won something I completely shut myself off from sports for a while until they get over it. Like when the Miami Heat won I cut myself off from all media since anymore slurping off Lebron James wouldve drove me insane.

    Honestly same goes with Russel Wilson and the Seahawks. I have no problems with him or that team normally (I was huge on their side against the Steelers and still feel they got robbed), but the amount they were getting overhyped and overblown here and in the media was making me want them to lose more and more just so people would shut up about it.

    It would be even better of Terrel Suggs tried to spell every word with T-S-I-Z-Z-L-E

    So, the Ravens just pulled a Giants on the whole league. Team was good, not great through most of the year. Played well enough to make the playoffs, but not well enough to make anyone think they would do anything. Of all the teams that qualified, I thought they were better than the Colts, Bengals, and Falcons. That's it. But they caught fire at the right time, won a couple games where they were huge road underdogs, and made the Super Bowl. So I guess I have to pick the Ravens to win.

    I loved how after the game was over Terrell Suggs ran out yelling at the Patriots

    "Have fun at the Pro Bowl! Arrogant fucks!"

    So, apparently this is big news http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/88...wl-xxxvii-loss

    Tim Brown blames the Raiders' Super Bowl XXXVII loss on Bill Callahan, the head coach at the time.

    ""We all called it sabotage ... because Callahan and Gruden were good friends. And Callahan had a big problem with the Raiders, you know, hated the Raiders. You know, only came because Gruden made him come. Literally walked off the field on us a couple of times during the season when he first got there, the first couple years.""

    That's a lot of assumptions I think.

    Had nothing to do with the fact Callahan was using Gruden's old playbook, Gruden taught his D all their calls and that the team was being run by Gannon that season.

    Callahan was useless.
