On a lighter note, did anyone else get a kick out of the pre-game SB MVP ceremony?

    Even though it was a mediocre Super Bowl, I have to tell ya, I really enjoyed the pre-game ceremony honoring past Super Bowl MVPs.

    It was great watching all those Cowboys legends take the walk! Dallas really represented! I wish Harvey Martin could have been around to do it as well.

    Larry Brown really heard it from that heavy contingent of Steelers fan in Detroit. :D

    I get a kick out of honoring the game's greats and it was awesome watching so many Super Bowl legends from Jerry Rice to Larry Csonka to Emmitt Smith to Bart Starr to Joe Namath to Tom Brady all walk out at once.

    Where was Bradshaw? I noticed he didn't walk out, only Franco Harris and Lynn Swann. Was he doing something with Fox?

    Yeah, they didn't call out the names of people not present, but they could have at least given someone like Martin, who has passed away and couldn't represent himself, a nod.

    Neither Montana or Bradshaw- pretty big omissions.

    They did on ESPN radion this morning. They also said Montana declined because the NFL wouldn't pony up a 100 grand for his 'fees'.

    What a loser. That was like watching the NBA's Top 50 Players of All-Time event. I would think any player would want to be a part of it.

    Thats part of being a great QB but what it seems like a pretty sorry human being. If this is true it sure scars some childhood memories of mine even though he played for the 9ers I always thought he was a "good guy".

    Just because its on ESPN does not make it true- I find this one a little hard to believe. Joe has done other ones without being paid- I think there is more to this story.

    Would've never thought Montana was like that. Disappointing.

    It was nice seeing all those Cowboys though. The boos were great. LOL

    Actually ESPN was reporting based on the story written in San Francisco paper, forgot which one and another news paper article. Bradshaw apparently said he wanted to be with family or needed to be with family.

    Either one of those excuses really didn't sit well with me. I mean come on, both of them were there in Detroit almost all of last week. They couldn't stay few more days to be in that great moment?

    Yeah, Bradshaw said he wanted to spend it at home with his family. Can't really fault him.

    Come on, like he doesn't have entire off season to do that? I mean, ok, if somone in his family is seriously ill or something etc., its one thing. He was there to pimp his movie all week, but couldn't wait for couple of days more for the cermony?

    Sorry, that as pathetic excuse, unless, Like I said, there was something serious going within his family that needs his attention. It does seem like Bradshaw still doesn't like Pittsburgh/Steelers as much due to the treatment he had when he played for them, or thats what the talk is about, with regards to his absense.

    Yeah, that's true, he was there all week.

    But I think his excuse is alot more viable than Montana's.

    maybe the NFL didn't like their excuses either....that would explain not recognizing anyone not present even though it might be a little unfair to Harvey Martin's family.
