[February 02, 2015] We can learn from sports and Super Bowl 2015 provided an enjoyable opportunity to see it in action. It was easy to watch the action of the quarterbacks and head coaches controlling game play, especially helpful with the animation provided by game announcers. Both teams have my upmost respect for a hard-fought game.
In the first half, the Patriots seemed to dominate while putting the first points on the board with a touchdown. But it was the final two minutes of play that were most exciting with a come-from-behind win by the Patriots. Except for a short-lived fistfight toward the end, the game was clean and appeared to be a fair game; just what Americans like to see.
This football season however has been overshadowed by a number of issues that may affect how the game is played in the future. From the accusations that the Patriots underinflated their footballs (to unfairly gain an advantage) to domestic violence, all have been a serious distraction. Football is undeniably the most popular team sports in the United States. Given its enormous popularity and the imperfect handling of these very issues by senior NFL leaders, will we see major changes? Unlikely.
With all this in mind, it was extremely enjoyable to watch a professional football game with two of the best teams every fielded.
