WATCH: Jon Stewart Lays Bare the NFL's Totally Messed Up Priorities
In honor of Superbowl Sunday, Jon Stewart discussed the various controversies roiling the NFL and causing a media frenzy ahead of the Big Show. These terribly important matters are, of course, "deflate-gate," also known as "ball-gazi," or as Stewart referred to it last night, "The ball-o-caust," and whether or not players wear the right hats to the pre-game press conferences.
Could it be, Stewart wonders, that the league has a distorted sense of prioirites, worried more about what logos the players wear on their head during press conferences, than, say the brain damage they acquire while playing? Or, just for another example, domestic violence among the players.
Stewart sums up the whole, twisted saga of deflate-gate, and how a lowly locker-room attendant appears to be taking the fall for that, because no way would, say, New England Patriot quarterback Tom Brady or coach Bill Belichick have had anything to do with making their footballs easier to throw or catch. Why would they do that? Winning isn't that important, is it?
