    There sound judgement also depends on how people view them. It affects the line. Steeler fans aren't going to go out and bet against their team. And if they made the line favoring the Seahawks and underdogging the Steelers, every drunken(many) Steeler would be lining up to place a bet.

    The Steeler are like Goliath and the Seahawk are like David. Nobody is going to bet on David unless you give him some odd. Even if David has be better, it is hard to visually see this popular team fall to fall to David.

    They have to make the line right in the middle. If they get to many one way, they move the line.

    Close, but it is based slightly on which team more people like ... they don't pick the spread the ACTUALLY think will happen ... they pick the spread that they think will get an equal number of bets on both sides ... that is what their job is ... to make an equal amount of winners and losers in Vegas so that the casinos make money off of commission and betting fees regardless.

    If the Seahawks win the Super Bowl, the media will give Holmgren all the credit....then, they will bring up the Packers 1 Super Bowl and spend so much time reminiscing that Hasselback's performance will be shadowed by Brett Favre lovers at Sportscenter....

    YOU JUST WATCH!!!!

    the media wants the Steelers to win anyways....
    I have found that for every minute of coverage on ESPN that the Seahawks get, the Steelers get five minutes....pretty unequal coverage for a team that is the NFC's 1st seed....too bad the Seahawks name isn't "Eagles" or "Packers", the media seems to favor them in every game regardless of their record....

    Yeah, I agree and that would suck! That is why the steelers are going to win!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    The Packers were horrible this year, leading me to believe that these companies are targeting Packers fans under the misconception that there are more Packers fans than any other franchise in the NFL....

    I hear ya. The Packers seem to always get attention even when the flat out suck. I am sick of hearing Madden talk about Favre like he is some kind of god. He constantly talks about him, even when he is doing other games, he somehow always brings Favre into the conversation..
    Like it or not there are more Packer fans nationally. They over took the cowboys a few years ago. The main reason is because Favre is very popular except in MN. :razz: He won the internet sexy man comp on fox this year for instance and not because of his good looks. :lol: I know a lot of people who like their team first and the Packers second and its mainly because of Bret Favre. That's just a fact. And it doesn't matter whether he is winning or losing.

    I can hardly wait for him to retire. :lol:
