It's akin to the SB two years ago, Carolina and NE. No one cared about
Carolina (I was living there at the time and they couldn't even sell
out of SB gear at the local target the interest was so low) and NE only
brought people in because they had won before. Last year was great
because it brought in the casual fan (Big Names like T.O. and McNabb
are always good people who don't like football still know of Mc5 due to
the Rush controversy and the Soup commercials. Plus, T.O. and the
Desperate Housewife guaranteed interest.) and then the three peating
Patriots. No one who doesn't really like or care about football knows
much about the Steelers honestly. SB ratings aren't bulletproof, but
the money the league makes is pretty stable because even with
non-marquee teams like these two, the advertisers can't collectively
low ball the. But remember last year, there were some MAJOR absences
from the SB advertising because companies just didn't think it was
worth the money. I suspect the same trend will apply this year.
