According to Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch, a movement has started to get the NFL to move from Sunday to Saturday. Well, not so much a movement, but a Facebook with 23 members behind it. But the strange thing is NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy saying that this is a normal thing.
“We hear this each year,” said [McCarthy]. “The concept of playing the Super Bowl on a Sunday has worked well for 44 years and we don’t anticipate moving away from this tradition. Fans expect to see the Super Bowl on a Sunday, the day on which 89.2 percent of NFL games are played.”
