This year’s Super Bowl was widely considered to have been incredibly boring from start to finish, or as Deadspin’s Barry Petchesky put it in a headline: “Well, that sucked.”
During yesterday’s episode of “Breitbart News Daily” on SirusXM Patriot, Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow blamed the lack of excitement on the National Football League’s (NFL) attempts to reconcile political statements put forward by its players and a general culture in America where politics has scared people out of taking risks.
“The dullness, I think, is newsworthy and it doesn’t necessarily make for the most compelling talk radio to announce that something was dull, but it is worth noting,” Marlow said. “I felt like there weren’t a lot of risks taken. There wasn’t a lot of boldness to it. It was just sort of vanilla.”
Marlow said that people don’t like the New England Patriots “because all of them are Trump supporters, it seems like, so the media can’t get behind them, which I do find very amusing considering how the NFL is trying to get as woke as possible and then all these Trump supporters win the Super Bowl again.”
“The boringness of it all I think is interesting—that we’re afraid, it seems like. We’re kind of an afraid, scared people now,” Marlow said.
