Super Bowl host city still reeling over sports deals (The Associated Press)

The entire world will be watching Glendale on Sunday as it hosts the Super Bowl and the legions of fans who are shelling out big bucks to see the big game. What may be not visible amid all the hoopla is a sobering reality about the Super Bowl host city: Glendale is suffering deep financial issues over its troubled effort to become a sports destination. Glendale bet big on professional sports in the last 15 years, spending millions of dollars on a hockey arena for the Arizona Coyotes and investing heavily in a spring training ballpark for the Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers. Then the economy tanked, and the hockey team went through bankruptcy, with several different owners in recent years.

What scandals? It never rains on Super Bowl party (Reuters)

By Steve Keating PHOENIX (Reuters) – From domestic violence to deflated footballs, scandal and controversy have hung over the National Football League this season but no matter how dark the clouds it never rains on the Super Bowl parade. North America’s most popular sport has seen as many hits off the field as on it during a turbulent 2014-15 campaign but marches on toward next Sunday’s highly anticipated championship game between the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots. Alleged skullduggery surrounding the Patriots use of deflated footballs in a blowout of the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC title game has been an unwanted distraction during the run in to Super Bowl week but the hotel rooms are full and private jets pack Phoenix area airports, unloading their cargo of A-listers and high-rollers ready for a week of VIP partying. “The fact is Americans just love football,” George Belch, marketing professor at San Diego State University told Reuters.

A summary of the wild 2014 NFL season (The Associated Press)

The NFL has reached the pinnacle of its season with the Super Bowl just around the corner. Although it’s the most popular sport in the U.S., for many Americans and millions around the world, the Super Bowl is the only football game they will watch all year. Some people know more about the NFL’s domestic violence policy or the way the league inflates footballs than about the actual teams – the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots – playing in the big game on Feb. 1. A lookback at an NFL season that will be long remembered more for things that happened off the field: — DOMESTIC VIOLENCE Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was suspended for the season and released by the team after video surfaced of him punching his fiance in an elevator.

It shows footage of Griffin’s highlight run against the Minnesota Vikings in 2012, but the team’s logo has been digitally removed from his helmet.

Running back Tommy Mason, the first draft pick in Minnesota Vikings history, has died. Mason’s sister-in-law, Suzanne MacNeil, told The Associated Press that Mason died peacefully Thursday at his home in Newport Beach, California, with his wife, Karen, by his side.
