No invites for the “do not care” crowd.

I only wrote do not care because I want both of them to lose but (if it's not my team in it i am not going to want either of them to win but it doesn't mean i don't want to watch a good game, besides the fact that the commercials are awesome) that wasn't an option so I figure that was my next choice... So can I still come?

My version of that:

Really don't care who wins, but I'm gonna love watching the game the beer, ribs, and wings.

@HelpMe, does that count as caring?

Easily the best Super Bowl I've ever watched, not as much of an underdog feel to this one (being from Cleveland, you always gotta go for the underdog :P) Looking forward to a good game, hope it lives up to the hype!

Btw, what happens if Yud Shvat falls out on Super Bowl Sunday?

Umm, Yud Shvat weekend was the only way I was able to watch the Super Bowl through all my years of Yeshiva!

the commercials are awesome

I don't know, I used to really enjoy them, but lately they haven't impressed me as much. (Can anyone remember the last decent Budweiser commercial?) There was an article I read about how the funniest commercials didn't necessarily have a strong correlation to brand recognition, I think companies spending millions of dollars of advertising money are getting smarter about their investments. We'll see

Funny Honda CRV commercial that will preview on the Superbowl.  Saw come clips on the news --  it's a tribute to Ferris Bueller's Day Off, with Mathew Broderick in the commercial, playing hooky from work.  Lots of familiar scenes from the movie, remade for the commercial, etc...looks like a several minute commercial -- a costly affair for Honda.

If you're trying to proove that there is a Jets-Giants rivalry, Rex Ryan adds nothing to it... (unless you're saying he's just a hater ;))

Allow me to clarify, I am sure that New Yorkers as fans feel a hatred towards either the Jets/Giants. That does not translate into an actual rivalry. You must play meaningful games against one another to enter into the discussion of a rivalry.

I'm going to have to agree with YankeeD on this one. There isn't a real rivalry between the giants and jets. Granted each teams fans wants the other team to lose but that's just so you can laugh at your friends. If you were out of town w/o any jets fans would you care what they did?

You must play meaningful games against one another to enter into the discussion of a rivalry.

Totally disagree. There are really 3 components to rivalry.

The first is that the teams are competing closely with each other for some goal or other. Everyone is out to win the SB, or any sports' championship. But there's an added level of gunning for a division/conference/league title, or even 2 teams that are frequently in direct competition for a wild card as the season winds down. This aspect of competition becomes more intense if the 2 teams get to play each other because a win means twice as much  - it helps you and hurts your competition.

The second is that the teams are both relevant in the race for the given goal. It's hard to say that 2 teams in a division are rivals if one is projected to be 14-2 and the other 2-14.

The third is that the teams have satisfied the first 2 requirements often, especially in recent history.

The point of all this is that 2 teams in the same city, aside for competing for their division/league title etc, are also always competing to be "the team" of that city. This is more true in NYC than anywhere else. The bigger issue is that so often the 2 NY sports teams in a given sport aren't frequently competitive at the same time. So they lack the history aspect. But in a year where they're both in the playoff conversation (like this year) or they play each other (like this year), the rivalry aspect is in full force. And anyone who followed the Jets and Giants in the weeks leading up to their game knows that the teams and their fans felt that way.

granted they competed this year but that doesn't make them a rivalry. a rivalry is actually based on the history aspect which you are disregarding
Title: Re: Superbowl

Battle of New York: Jets vs. Giants
Main article: Giants–Jets rivalry
Over the years, there have actually been several NFL teams playing in the New York City metropolitan area, but the Giants and the Jets are the only surviving teams.
The modern rivalry dates back to 1970, when the Giants beat the Jets 22-10 at Shea Stadium. The Jets won 4 of the next 6 meetings to take a 4-3 series lead heading into the 1996 meeting.
One of the more memorable contests was in 1974. The game went into overtime - 1974 was the first year of overtime in the regular season. The Jets and Giants played a back-and-forth game, with most of the time having either the score tied or the Giants in the lead. Entering overtime, the score was tied at 20, but the Jets would take the victory when Joe Namath threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Emerson Boozer. This is seen as some as the true beginning of the rivalry. Oddly enough, it was not played in New York, but rather the Yale Bowl in New Haven, Connecticut - the Giants' then-home, Yankee Stadium, was being renovated and thus unavailable for use (New Haven is today considered part of the extended NYC metro area).
The rivalry became more heated in the 1980s, when the Jets left Shea Stadium to take residence as tenants in Giants Stadium. The Jets had to pay dues to the Giants. This ended in 2010 when MetLife Stadium opened - it is a joint partnership between both teams. Most recently, in 2011, the Giants defeated the Jets in a heated Christmas Eve match that had major playoff implications. The convincing victory propelled the Giants to a playoff run and eliminated the Jets from postseason contention.
The teams will meet next in 2015, and every four years after that.

Personally I would take the time to read someone's comment before quoting it, but that's just me.

The third is that the teams have satisfied the first 2 requirements often, especially in recent history.

Since 2000, they each have had only 3 losing seasons and each has had a better record than the other 6 times over that 12 season span. The Giants obviously are the better team historically, and probably more New York's team because of that, but recently they have been more evenly matched. The Giants making and possibly winning the SB this year on top of '07 obviously tilts the discussion farther in their favor, but we're not lopsided to the point where Jet fans would all agree that the Giants have been the better team, as would probably be the case with the Mets and Yanks.

The rivalry became more heated in the 1980s, when the Jets left Shea Stadium to take residence as tenants in Giants Stadium. The Jets had to pay dues to the Giants. This ended in 2010 when MetLife Stadium opened - it is a joint partnership between both teams.
Totally forgot to mention this part. They play in the same building!!!! Sometimes even on the same week. All sports teams have a "this is OUR house" thing going on, especially in football. The fact that you share a stadium with another team is definitely an added factor in the rivalry.

okay so your first component is that there is a direct competition between them which doesn't apply by giants-jets seeing how they are in different  conferences and only play once every 4 years.

second was that they both have to be relevant and as you so nicely pointed out most years that is not the case.

in which case the third obviously doesn't apply either.

as for your conclusion that they are battling for the city that might be true as for the last 2 years but that's it. My point was that 2 years does not make a rivalry especially when you only played each other once during that span. If the jets were to be completely irrelevant next year I wouldn't care if they went 6-10 or 7-9 but regardless how bad the eagles are doing I always want them to lost the next game.

Title: Re: Superbowl

The root of the controversy here is really the fickle way that we throw the word "rivalry" around. (Compounded by the thousands of couch/potato/blogosphere sports fans who have the time/lack of real job to think about how to get ppl more riled up about sports.) A rivalry can only exist between successful teams. These successful teams must play each other on a regular basis (think arch-nemesis.)

How do you know if it is a real rivalry or not? If you can think of more than two teams (I am tempted to say one) that your favorite team is rivals with...you prob aren't rivals.

College football is one of the oldest team oriented sports. Ohio State is an old and very successful program. There is only one rivalry...Michigan. That is bec. they play the last game of the regular season every year and have routinely destroyed the other teams title hopes. There are numerous other teams that Ohio State plays every year with high stakes but there is nobody that constitutes a rivalry like Michigan.

A number of years out of a long history is fine (does dull the intensity but rivalry can still exist.) I am not the biggest hockey guy so I can't speak to that so specifically. The Rangers however haven't been a great team lately either. Back in the day there was hardly a greater rivalry than the Stillers and my Brownies, the Browns haven't been even remotely decent since the move and to Browns fans there is still no team more hated than the Steelers (the rivalry is no longer what it once was, that is partially due to how long it's been since they've had meaningful games but it's also complicated by losing the team and with it a generation of fans.)

Once again, read what I actually wrote.
... the teams are competing closely with each other for some goal or other...
... 2 teams in the same city... are also always competing to be "the team" of that city.
They don't have to play games against each other to compete for that goal. It certainly helps when they do get to meet on the field, but even when they're not, they're competing for the bragging rights to the city.
second was that they both have to be relevant and as you so nicely pointed out most years that is not the case.
Not sure where I pointed out that it's not the case.
Since 2000, they each have had only 3 losing seasons and each has had a better record than the other 6 times over that 12 season span.
Translation: They've both played mostly winning football (ie giving them relevance) without one team holding being dominant over the other.

I agree that the rivalry tag gets thrown around too often, this just isn't one of those times. You picked Michigan-Ohio St as an example, rightfully so given its magnitude. But the majority of big college football rivalries are in state, which just highlights the idea that when 2 teams have overlapping turf, when they compete for the allegiance of many of the same fans, there is an innate rivalry.

Of course they play each other, I'm not saying its the same exact situation as Jets and Giants. My point is that the reason USC - UCLA is a rivalry and not Oregon - UCLA for example, is because they play in the same city.
As far as different sports, I shouldn't have to bother pointing this our, but you can root for a school's football and basketball teams. The teams don't compete for the same fan base because there's nothing wrong with supporting both. If you told someone you're a Jets and Giants fan, you'd get funny looks, hence they are competing for the fans.

Neither. But regardless, as I already mentioned, Yanks and Mets is not a rivalry because they are so infrequently playing anywhere near each other's level.


Not where I was going with that, wanted to see if you were a fan of a team that ever won a championship, or had a real meaningful rivalry, or all you know of is trying to be taken seriously (unsuccessfully) by your town. You say the yankees and METS are not a rivalry because "they are so infrequently playing anywhere near each other's level". Can you tell me how many times in their histories the giants and jets made the playoffs in the same year? Now how about the yankees and METS? Seems to me you're judging this all based on the last 3 years since Rex Ryan showed up and started making noise how he is "taking over the city". But even if you are basing it on recent history how many times have the jets actually won their division in recent years? So then you're going to tell me but they made runs in the playoffs, but again how many of those years were giants even in the playoffs? I think it's ludicrous to base a rivalry on the fact that they switch off years being good. How can you feel that they are in direct competition if they never even got close to competing with each other for a title? The yankees and METS had a subway series just a few years ago! In spite of that, all that exists there is MET fans hating on the yankees and that's all that is going to exist here too until the jets actually win something.

You still gotta play meaningful games against each other often (as USC-UCLA do) and then an intra-city rivalry means something. If you can't accept that you're deluding yourself... I'm not sure why you are so fixated on prooving that it is a rivalry?

Decrease is more like it... If there was only one team in a city, they would have the support of the entire city, 2 teams means only have the fans hence half the profits (or so.)

Not sure why you think I won't agree. It was not a great game. Too few drives and the level of play was not amazing (though maybe you can credit that to the defenses playing overall solid games). But as a Giants fan I really don't give a darn and I'll take the victory  ;D

Bradshaw, wasn't planning on going in, he anticipated being hit at the line and his forward momentum (due to not being hit) pushed him in. Mistake on the Giants part to not simply take a knee at that point. Bigger mistake on the Pats for not allowing them to score right after they got into chip-in range with about 2 min left. Would have given Brady enough time to attempt a successful drive. I could not believe Belicheck wasted a TO on that challenge (that happened literally in front of his face.) Terrible game, worst SB I've watched in years. Dropped (uncontested) passes, poor time management/TO usage. Few successful drives, too many sloppy plays all-around.

On the food note: My BIL had sweet chicken wings, spicy poppers, real southern chili (all home-made) with fresh bread and the usual mix of chips dips and drinks.

On the "rivalry" note: My BIL is a native NY/NJ and huge Jets fan, he lol'ed when I mentioned the idea floating around here of a Jets-Giants rivalry.

I have a Friend who is "a native NY/NJ and huge Jets fan" and I know:
A. he had "sweet chicken wings, spicy poppers, real southern chili (all home-made) with fresh bread and the usual mix of chips dips and drinks. " at his superbowl party.
B. He has a BIL from CLE

So basically I never would've guessed it but I think I just realized who you are :)

EDIT: I just remembered that said BIL spent some time in Berkeley, CA (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=13405) some time ago... (in case I had any doubts)
lol guilty as charged!
Now to figure out which of BIL friends are DDF'ers ;)

Thats it then!Its decided! We have 1 Jets fan who thinks that there is no Jets Giants rivalry ::)
I still haven't heard one quality argument that there is a Jets Giants rivalry. However if there is a feeling amongst NY'ers that there is a rivalry,- no matter how illogical it is - I cannot take that away. Therefore I was simply pointing out that it's far from a "given" that NY'ers do indeed feel this way.

Not over the middle, no way. A play action to the corner I could accept but would still have ran it. Remember this was not fourth down.

Totally disagree. I think in this case everyone would still say why do that? It wouldn't even need bad for the sea hawks if there patriots stored him into second down.  We were even wondering out they were going to let sea score do they have some time

+1. If you're going to throw there make sure you're doing it with Wilson on the run so that if it's not a sure thing he can just throw it away or try to get in himself depending on the situation.

Basically, if they score on that pass, the reaction would've been, "that was weird, but they won anyway so, whatever..."
