I got an email today from a friend, he sent me some photos that MNF would not show due to commercials being more important!! Seriously, we are in a sad state of mind when this happens and not shown.

Those who attended the game said it was extremely emotional to see the entire bowl of the stadium turn red, white and blue. It took 90 workers two weeks to get all of the colored pages mounted under each seat. Each piece of card board had eye slits in them so the fans could hold up the colored sheet and watch the game through the eye slits.

I guess the answer here is that money from commercials trumps loyalty to our country

Was always interested in huge organized things such as this. Do they all just hold up the cardboard for the minute or so during the ceremony, and continue to put it down and watch the game as normal? I couldn't imagine holding that thing up the whole time lol.

Awesome, nonetheless.

The high number of commercial breaks is killing a great sport. There is no continuity of the game and the cool off hot drives. Coaches call time outs to do the same thing, but that' OK if that;s how they want to use a time out. The commercials have forced me to record every game I want to watch. I start watching 30-40 minutes after kick-off t be able to speed forward through all the mind-numbing advertisements, some of which are shown twice during the same break. The increase in volume for the commercials when combined with the endless prattle of the people in the booth, especially when the filling in your teeth rattle and ache from Al Michael's voice, is harmful to the health of the fans especially those around them if their team is playing lousy. Commercials are creating the "No Football League," and an overweight America (who doesn't run to the fridge during commercial breaks)

Awesome, nonetheless.I believe this could have been at the end of the qtr or halftime. I am most disturbed that it took 2 weeks to set this up and MNF didnt even air it!

Yea welcome to America man. They're not hesitant to show a :30 commercial showing you can get 20 McNuggets for $5, but can't air something where 100,000+ people are in one stadium paying homage to our troops.

God bless Amurrrica!

That's beautiful. They should have shown that on tv....people putting their lives on the line every day so we can enjoy such liberties and we can't even air our appreciation...sad. Evil, greed, and corruption in a suit and tie.

The TV timeouts struck me in the face like that the first time I went to a real game. I say eliminate them and add tape delay if required, and extend the end of quarter and halftime breaks to get back to real-time.

I realize commercials make money, but really how many people have sat through them and then said "Honey I think you need to go to wallyworld and buy some Gyne-Lotrimin, you arent fresh"?

Why not do a half screen commercial? Half live game feed and half commercial. Its not like they dont advertise in stadiums too.

Because I like to be able to see things when I'm watching the game.

This is bogus. Those pics are from an NBC telecast at Lambeau Field. My guess is that these were from last years opening night, packers hosting the saints.

NBC telecasts this past weekend were at MetLife and in Denver.

As a military member, we knew what we signed on for and we graciously accepted the challenge and sacrifice that was laid before us.

We do appreciate every bit of support we get..I've had people just walk up to me in Walmart and shake my hand and Thank me..as well as people offering to buy my lunch. For me, just hearing someone thankful for what I and the rest of the Armed forces do for this country is heart warming and is the greatest reward one could ever ask for. Hopefully this Country we all love will see a time again when we are at war with no one.....a Time of Peace.

Unfortunately there are just enough to keep the commercials going. Just like SweetZombieJesus...when I went to my first live game and I saw everyone standing around I was wondering what the hell was going on. One minute everything is intense and then all of a sudden everything just came to a screeching halt with waterboys coming on to the field and stuff. Television definitely kills momentum.
