    Since The Queen of Pop performed in 2012, it's become an obligation for the world to pretend to care so they could watch the half-time show.

    Errrm, we don't.....................

    Who's this everyone?

    Im guessing you're american- because everyone else in the world watches REAL football (what you guys call soccer) and doesnt understand or care about american football. All i know is its a bit like rugby, but our rugby players dont wear massive shoulder/knee protectors- they just take it like men...............

    If you dont like it, dont watch it- we dont bother here- its on sky sports but i have never heard anyone talk about it.
    First up, not American. And you must be living in a little bubble if you think that no one cares. "I'm guessing you're from" a derelict English country town.

    I don't usually watch it, but the one this year was actually very exciting. But yeah, I don't care about the rest of the season

    Maybe they do actually care? Considering that there is stigma to embracing any kind of American culture that isn't Hollywood, I doubt they're pretending. Dunno though.

    Yeah, when I was at university in the UK the student union would do a big Superbowl event and, like you say, everyone seemed to suddenly be fans of whatever team was playing. Personally I find football incredibly boring, I'm a hockey guy. :love:
