    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I tell you, I thought they were gonna have to drag Rupert Murdoch out of the stadium on a stretcher last night. My God, can you believe how much audience they had to lose during that game in the second half? Can you imagine how many make goods or how much money they're gonna have to be rebating to their sponsors because so many eyeballs -- I'm guessing that there was a huge tune-out the second half, 'cause, man. Folks, look, I have to be real careful here. As you know, I'm a huge football fan, and...

    When it comes to Super Bowls and getting blown out, no one goes down in flames quite like the Denver Broncos. Denver's loss to Seattle on Sunday was team's fifth Super Bowl loss, an NFL record. The Broncos had been tied with the Patriots (3-4), Vikings (0-4) and Bills (0-4) for most Super Bowl losses. Having the most Super Bowl losses is bad enough, but it gets worse: thanks to the 43-8 final score, the Broncos have now been on the losing end of three of the five biggest blowouts in Super Bowl history. Here are the five biggest blowouts...

    A local district judge on Monday signed a temporary restraining order against the Seattle Seahawks, directing them to stop using the 12th Man slogan until a ruling is made on whether it is a licensed trademark belonging to Texas A&M University. The restraining order, filed by A&M and signed by District Judge J.D. Langley, sets a 1:30 p.m. Thursday hearing in the 85th District Court at the Brazos County Courthouse. Seattle, which will play Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XL on Sunday in Detroit, has received national attention in recent weeks for its devoted fans, whom it calls the 12th Man....

    Bryan-College Station Eagle ^ | January 29, 2006 | Associated Press
    The Seattle Seahawks are facing the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl, but they have an off-the-field battle brewing with Texas A&M University. School officials are upset with the Seahawks' use of the "12th Man" theme to recognize their fan support. A&M has legal claims to the "12th Man" moniker, a school tradition that dates to the 1920s. The Seahawks have celebrated their fans as a "12th Man" since the 1980s, when they used to turn the now-demolished Kingdome into one of the NFL's loudest venues. The team retired the No. 12 in 1984. Now, a No. 12 flag waves...

    SEATTLE - We can't imagine the Seahawks without their 12th Man. But another team says the 12th Man concept is their idea and they want us to stop using it. Who knew the 12th Man was Texas? Turns out the first 12th Man wasn't a Hawk -- he was an Aggie. And Texas A & M wants to keep it that way and stomp out a 22-year-old Seattle tradition. The news floors Jeff Scoma, who sells Seahawks merchandise. "That's interesting that you can't produce a blue flag with a 12 on it or a blue shirt with a 12...
