    We all know Howard's "Birthday Bash" was really part of the SiriusXM Super Bowl celebration and lately Howard has been trashing the NFL every chance he gets. It's funny that someone who has no interest in football would call the NFL "scumbags" because of the number of head injuries, say that football should be eliminated, and complain about their tax status (all recent statements by Howard). The NFL is very picky about letting the term "Super Bowl" be used and it's management is quite conservative. Did they refuse to allow Howard to be associated with them so the party was changed to a birthday show instead?

    There was something weird going on this year, my local station guys weren't allowed to say, "Super Bowl"on their friday shift.

    It was always a birthday show. No one ever said it had any connection to the Super Bowl.

    Yes, a "birthday show" that took place 19 days after his birthday and on the same weekend as the Super Bowl. Considering the fact that everyone in the Stern universe lies constantly, what event do you think the party was actually for?

    Howard is just pissed off that they scheduled the Super Bowl the same day as the Kitten Bowl. If not for the Super Bowl, the Kitten Bowl would have had 50 million viewers instead of one million.

    Who were the big NFL guys you heard on the show? Was it even mentioned? It was a good time to throw the party because a lot of people would be in town.

    I find it hilarious that his Birthday Show had NFL owners and other big name guys in attendance.

    Really? I think you know. I'm hoping to get -200,000,000 reputation points by the end of the week.

    And no one would show up for a party to "honor" Howard, they were only there because Sirius paid them to be part of the Super Bowl festivities.

    When they first started to talk about the "Bash", they always included the phrase, 'Super Bowl Weekend'.

    I mentioned here that it was illegal to mention Super Bowl in a commercial venture without permission. Never heard another mention of "Super Bowl Weekend" after that.

    See? BenBas is right when she says staff reads this site.:D

    I just seen a New Episode of Pawn Stars and they was fighting about who got the Day off for the Big Game they never said Super Bowl but kept calling it the Big Game. They must of not got permission to say Super Bowl or something. I think Cory won over Chum Lee and Rick if I remember correclty.

    that was true last year for my area. They usually do a whole superbowl radio promo in a local park.
    They explained you cannot use the word Superbowl anymore with any type of non licensed promo. The NFL even cracked down on neighboring cities where superbowls were held if they didn't kick in tax dollars to the NFL.
    Its outreagous that this billion dollar company is considered a non profit.
    The commissioner and owners were at Howard's event. I bet Sirrius was just trying to get out of paying hundreds of thousands extra for licensing that Bash event as a Superbowl event. They did have commercials during the event so it would of had to have a separate liscening agreement.
    Plus Howard would not be able to use the video aa he wants to to raise money for NSAL
    remember he said the Rahr donation was scheduled to be part of the evening.
    The term "Superbowl" is heavily licensed/protected.

    I may have missed it, was the NFL commissioner there? I remember them saying that Bob Kraft and Jerry Jones were there but I thought the commissioner they mentioned was the NHL guy. The NFL guy seems extremely conservative and not the type of person who would want to associate with Howard.
