    I haven't seen it anywhere linkable, but on several message boards folks are saying the NFL announced that Tom Brady will flip the coin.

    Not that I care one way or the other, but ummm... what's the deal with that?

    Strange if true!

    Why? Wouldn't they reserve that for when he retires and is a HOFer???

    Seems werid to me.

    No, the other boards just want brady there if there is going to be that terrorist attack that was reported earlier this week on this board... :D

    Yea , that doesn't pass the 'what the F" test. It might be true. But why would they ask him and why would he accept if asked?

    I dont think it's just him, I think all 39 super bowl mvp's will be on hand before the game, he wont be flipping the coin though..

    I find it hard to believe, particularly since he hasn't had a lot of "luck" with refs and coin tosses in the past!
    :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... that makes way more sense.


    EDIT: Reiss is now reporting it with no mention of the other MVPs. I'm back to thinking this is strange.

    I have no idea why I hate it, but I hate this. Maybe Brady just wants the same thing Bill wants. To see the Superbowl from the outside.. maybe as a reminder to what it feels like to be there as motivation for next season since they're not participating. It's still weird though.

    Maybe Tom and Bill are secretly planning to gank the Lombardi while no one is looking?

    So Brady and BB will both be at the Super Bowl. I guess it's just force of habit.

    For some reason this makes me want to puke.

    The key word here is "participating" in the coin flip. I think he'll be standing around with several others but not flipping the coin.

    If he does any flipping, he should flip the ref's off.

    The one positive about this stupid Super Bowl is that with Tommy coming back into town, we'll have some fun partying. It's quite odd that he's doing this. That guy resents losing more than I do.

    Gotta agree with the majority. That'd be bizarre.

    Did someone forget to tell him the Pats have been eliminated? Are the two QB's that are playing too ugly? I don't get it and I don't like it.

    That's what I think too. If that's the case, I don't think it's a big deal. If they announce all the players that are involved, I'm sure Brady will get a loud welcome from the Steelers fans. :D

    well

    Here's to hoping that BB and TB will be at the superbowl next year, and have nothing to do with the festivities :eat2:

    It's all marketing, that's it. Get as many names and faces as possible at Ford Field. The Super Bowl is getting too big for its britches.

    If this is true,
    Tommy has to be the most humble guy playing sports today!
    I mean, 3 Superbowl rings and 2 Superbowl MVPs awards and the guy
    is still willing to filp the coin. I love this guy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am OK with this ONLY if it involves EVERY Super Bowl MVP that is currently alive. If not, than I really don't like it and would rather see Steve Largent and Lynn Swann (2 of the best from SEA and PIT) do it.
