    How much politics do you think is going to be introduced into the Superbowl event?

    We already have a pretty good idea what we will see as far as commercials and halftime shows, both with plenty of anti-Trump propaganda, but what about on the field?

    Are we going to have players "taking knees" and showing other forms of disrespect to America, Americans and President Trump?

    Brady has been very outspoken with his support for President Trump, he has take a lot of heat about this. Do you think this support will be a factor in the game itself? Do you think that members of his own team will , allow Brady to get sacked and sacked hard, drop a pass or two, etc.?
    Do you think that the referees will be all over the Patriots and make a lot of bad calls ?

    I think the Patriots should win this game big, but they wont't. I think anti-Trump and hatred for Brady will be all over that field and it will be obvious. Falcons by 10.

    Sacks,or dropped passes will happen anyway. The desire to be a member of the team that won it's 5th Super Bowl will trump politics.

    Just play ball. And another reason to pull for the Falcons - one NE player has already stated he won't go to WH if they win.

    Maybe some will take a knee or whatever, but I doubt they'd allow sacks and throw the game like that.

    I agree that a world venue like this is too much to pass up for liberals and their hatred. They bought this election it should be theirs for what it cost.

    The SB will be memorable for it's liberals more so than the game.

    No way I watch. I haven't watched a game since week 2. Decided not to support it anymore.

    That always happens, so what? Jake Arrieta skipped the WH Cubs celebration. I'm pulling for the Patriots just because Brady and Belichek are Trump fans.

    Dunno about ATL...but the Pats WILL NOT take a knee- that I promise you. Bill has respect and a disciplined team.

    I'll be shocked if ATL does either, none of that nonsense this season or ever that I recall.

    I'm pulling for N.E.!! Nothing to do with politics, but I want my beloved Giants to be the only team to beat N.E. in the Super Bowl in the Belichek/Brady era!
