Consumerism

Commercials aired during the big game will be featured on the site once the game is over. The site also contains a number of ads for stores and for Cadillac, which is sponsoring the MVP vote. Links to the NFL store and to Ticketmaster, where users can purchase tickets for the NFL Experience "fan festival," are also on the site.

Drinking, drugs, & smoking

The site contains a Coors Light ad encouraging users to "join the party."

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this site is designed for fans of all ages and touts itself as a "general audience" Web site. There is plenty of eye candy for football lovers, but ads and brand-name sponserships abound.

QUALITY
 

The official Super Bowl site is a football fan's paradise. Fans get an inside glimpse at the Super Bowl media coverage, players, and on-the-field action from last season – without the trash-talking or inappropriate stuff.

If your kid is excited about the Super Bowl, this site will help fan the flames before the big day. And while the event's sponsors and advertisers are pretty blatant, visiting the site shouldn't expose young kids to any language or images meant for much older sports buffs.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about why watching professional athletes play a game can be fun -- but doesn't necessarily mean you should try to duplicate their moves in your next game. How can someone get hurt during a rough contact sport? What kind of serious injuries can happen as a result?
