I was more offended that Justin and Janet took away from a great Super Bowl game. The haltime show shouldn't even be on the radar with a game like that.


Also don't try and tell me that wasn't planned. Don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining.


Style over substance.:rolleyes:

I personally thought that allowing Viagra to sponsor the Halftime Streaker was a bit over the top too ;)

I wouldn't call it offensive, just woefully out of context.


Like Dave said, style over substance. The only way to sell rice cake flavored music is to drop a t*t into it. How many people remember the song that was being sung...er lip synched?


More evidence that MTV , in it's own socio-political fishbowl, thought that millions of viewers would have been disappointed with a super sonic, flame throwing , star studded halftime show unless someone dropped trou. How embarrasing.


BTW, was it me or did it seem like Janet could use some support? :D


OO

It didn't offend me personally like "I'm offended that I got to see JJ's tit" but for god's sake, I'm sitting with my kids watching a football game. WTF? Just go after the right friggin people. Don't fine CBS, fine the dumbasses who actually pulled the stunt.

Probably means it's time to teach your kids that nothing is wrong with nudity...that is if they ask. Otherwise, if you don't make a big deal about it they won't either.

Ummm, yeah. I'll have to sit the little tykes down with Playboy TV tonight so they can get really comfortable with the idea. Thanks!

Yeah... Hi Johnny. I know you're only 6. Here's some pictures.


BTW... If I have to see any more survivor with that puke Richard Hatch running around buck naked, I'm gonna puke.


CBS... The new nude network.

The thing to me is that the way it looked on TV (even a big screen) it was covered by the star and it was 0.5 seconds - they were real quick on CBS and then they ignored if afterwards - so NO it was not a big deal at all. Now if you go out online today (AVSFORUM) and find the HD picture then look at closely you might say - wow I can't belive that was on tv.......but it wasn't since it was impossible to see and it was way to quick. So once again - big deal - you see more than that on tv during regular programming. Have anyone flipped by the Spanish Channels lately :).....

FWIW, I simply can't fathom that 2/3 of the folks polled (as of my post) think that it's fine that Janet threw her tit out during the SUPERBOWL. That was really only a half step removed from topless dancers. If you've seen the clip on the net, there's *absolutely* no doubt that Janet dangling her boob around was an intentional act. What level would things have to rise to draw some form of "offense" from the un-offended? If Janet wants to run around naked in Playboy, then that's the appropriate context - heck I might even look, but for her to toss her ta-ta out while I'm watching the SB w/about 10 other couples, a few sets of grandparents, and about 15 kids under the age of 10 was entirely inappropriate.

I was not personally offended. I do not think it is possible to offend me.


However, I don't think that has any business on the Superbowl. It was in very poor taste - what were they thinking?

It was very inappropriate. Especially for all the kids to see.

Dead on. Wasn't offensive, but wasn't on at the right time.

I read the poll differently. Not being personally offended and approving are two different things. I personally love to see breasts ;), as do the three of my brothers that were in the room at the time. So we weren't personally offended. However, none of us believed that it was appropriate for the context... even if the show hadn't stunk. So, I read it as 2/3 do not approve given the context.
