This is the first year I remember them turning the conference championship games into games that were bigger than the Super Bowl itself. Championship Sunday? Championship Wednesday media day? Give me a break. Good going Goodell.
Imagine living in the city of one of the teams. Ridiculous 24/7 coverage. So who ever wins, then comes the Pro Bowl. Of course they aren't going to send their very best players and we have to listen to who they will send.
I tune in to our local news. There is an Amber Alert. So when do we get to hear about it? More than 15 minutes into the broadcast. First we have the weather, not only for that day, but for the day of the game. And then for the Championship game.
The newscasters, the weather person, the traffic person. the sports folks all manage to talk about how their job of reporting is affected by this one most important game in the world. Ad Nauseum.
