Everyone's Complaining About The Same Thing During Super Bowl

Broadcasting is tough.

The Super Bowl has begun. New England and Philadelphia are battling it out for NFL supremacy.

Sunday afternoon brought with it a Super Bowl. It's the time of year when NFL fans gather in front of TV's around the world to watch who will be crowned as the NFL's best team -- and who will go home unhappy.

New England entered as the favorite, but most of the money in Vegas was placed on the Eagles. That includes a few $1 million bets, and if you can believe it, a $3 million bet placed on the team from Phily.

When the game first started, the Eagles marched right down the field. Philadelphia had to settle for a field goal after a strong goal line stand by the Patriots.

During the drive, many were complaining about Al Michaels' play-calling. Now, generally Michaels is one of the best in the world, so it's not easy to criticize the star broadcaster.

However, a few NFL players and analysts are calling Michaels out for the same thing. He keeps calling play-action as an RPO -- run-pass option.

It's easy to confuse the two, but there is a big difference. Michael didn't hear the end of it.

Philly has an early 3-0 lead.
