I'm a grown man, just like Flacco and all the other players.  Hang a microphone over my head at work? So often that I forget they're there when my mind is on something else?  Pretty good chance you'll hear me curse at some point.

The network also drew criticism by the Parents Television Council for not moving quickly enough to edit out a profanity said by Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco shortly after the game. Flacco was caught by microphones describing his team's victory as "f------ awesome."

Hey HuffPo, when you title your article "Parents' Television Council Attacks CBS For Airing Joe Flacco's 'F---in' Awesome' In Super Bowl (VIDEO)" I expect a little more information than one small paragraph. Their outrage makes me happy, and you aren't supplying enough outrage.

Are you cursing?  There's no cursing in football!  Oh, wait...

(If you're bothered by cursing, don't watch football.  Or live sports in general.  Bound to be the odd four-letter-word here and there, in case you haven't noticed, you f*ckwits.)
 
2013-02-04 05:03:50 PM
Yeah because if there's one thing a lot of kids are going to be watching, it's the Super Bowl.

I can just imagine the coaches taking time to emphasize to their team how important it is that they watch their language out there.
 
2013-02-04 05:20:08 PM
What I find funny is that if you REALLY care about children, and the content they are exposed to, in an overly naive and preachy way, you would be much more "offended" at the NFL and both teams for the bevy of post-whistle shenanigans, complete with flying elbows and (I think) hair pulling, instead of CBS because a non-CBS employee said a curse word.

Wife and I were laughing our asses off when Flacco started swearing through an open mic on the live broadcast.

Still get a chuckle.  One of the best parts of the (rather entertaining) game.

also this is fake outrage;  that game was on 7 second delay and there was someone at CBS whose only job the whole godamn day was to put his finger on the dump button but he was evidently taking a piss when that happened.

if you live anywhere near a sports venue but watch the game on tv, you know that the first clue something happened is hearing the dull roar of the stadium before you even see what happened.

Ladies and Gentleman: Mr. Leonard Cohen. He is very funny, man could have been the best standup of his generation.  Definately worth seeing, he's goofing on the whole "documentary format" and playing with what people think his rep should be.  I could listen to him reading a phone book.

Didn't watch the Superbowl. Didn't watch the commercials. Didn't watch the Halftime show.

Very first picture from it that I saw this morning was of Beyonce with her legs spread wide-ass open on stage. Thought to myself, "Well, if you're going to lip-sync, you might as well give them something original for their money."

It happens. After Jordan played hs last game with the Bulls in 98 (Malone steal, shot over Russell etc.) the buzzer sounded, everyone crowded around and you could hear Steve Kerr say "You're farking unbelievable" presumably toward Jordan.

Yes, I'm a Jordan kook, and have seen the game several tmes. Phil Jackson also says during the scrum something like "what an ending" or "what a way to go out."

People at the tie were speculating whether they'd come back for one more run but that pretty much confirmed for me that it was over.

/not so cool story bro
 
2013-02-04 11:34:31 PM

2013-02-05 07:35:39 AM
The PTV are the most self-righteous, prudish, stuck up ninnies ever. Their whole mission statement is to "promote and restore responsibility and decency to the entertainment industry in answer to America's demand for positive, family-oriented television programming." They complain about EVERYTHING on TV that is not completely family friendly. Such as Breaking Bad. They acually "reviewed" Breaking Bad and told people that it was inappropriate for kids. As though that really needed stating!
From Wikipedia: "Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy, compared the PTC's frequent negative reviews of the series to "hate mail from Hitler"
When even Seth MacFarlane thinks your a dumbass, you probably are.

That F bomb was dropped after 11pm Eastern time, 10pm Central and 9pm Mountain.  If your kids are up after this time, then they are old enough to have been educated on what words are "bad" words.  The only people that have a gripe should be in the Pacific time zone.    When my kids were younger, every time a bad word was said in front of them, it was used as a teachable moment.  Now, they are the ones to point it out when it happens.  Shielding is stupid since you'd have to ensure that every single parent on the planet subscribes to your same newsletter on what a kid should be shielded from.  My opinion is to educate and take away the taboo associated with so many things and suddenly you children aren't as enamored with things deemed bad.

I recall a tennis match with Vitas Gerulaitis, and every time his opponent won a point the crowd would cheer loudly......and during the cheering the cameras zoomed in on Vitas...

He was screaming FARK YOU at the top of his lungs, over and over.  You couldn't hear him, but oh boy it's easy to read lips when someone says that phrase.

the FCC refused to fine NBC because the network did not receive advance notice of the consequences of broadcasting such profanity and the profanity in question was not used in its literal sexual meaning

I heard this morning that the FCC is still throwing it out there that the might fine CBS.  Which means all affiliates would need to be fined as well.

Zarquon's Flat Tire: Can we start a Normal Adults Television Council and start complaining about the lack of cursing and nudity on television?


I think if the FCC/networks got 100 pieces of mail in support for every ad-hoc "X People Council of Concerned Citizens for a Better Tomorrow Because Family and Freedom" letter against, they'd go away.

So who wants to build the spam-jaculator to handle this? Should be easy - write 10 or 12 different versions of a "Fark yeah accidental breast exposure!" or "That WAS farking awesome, and Joe was absolutely right to say so!" letter, start mixing and matching paragraphs, and you've got many thousands of combinations of letter to send. And with the internet on computers these days, why, an enterprising fellow could send many of these messages on behalf of real, voting, tax-paying people to petition their government to not do a farking thing about it.

We own those airwaves too, guys.

I spent some time in the Carribean, and on one island they used the word as a noun.  As in:

"Man, I don't watch that f*ck."
