  1. Tired of fighting on the front lines of a pandemic? Relax, and gather at a public sporting event with others who are exposed regularly! Workers in my town, too.

  2. No reports of the antifa riots here either???

  3. I"d throw 'em back in his face. Should have donated money to a good cause. The world doesn't benefit from people watching the Super Bowl (except maybe the NFL, no surprise there).

  4. Maybe this will spur others with the resources to follow suit.

  5. What an awesome guy. All nurses are struggling so hard for us. In U.S and here in U.K We'd be in trouble without them. The deniers and anti vaccers make my blood boil.

  6. This was a beautiful gesture. Yet there are a lot of hard workers that aren't social butterflies whom deserve but would never be nominated by their coworkers. Also taking into fact that I have never been able to afford to go to any football game local or otherwise. Maybe never attending a game should have been a prerequisite of the ticket giveaways. I my self since this virus became known worked under very risky conditions, which was no persons fault it's just the facts of the department I work in and circumstances of my personal life. I work in the Comprehensive Psychiatric ED on the nightshift which entails working in close contact to people who have a lot of diverse mental and social issues. Then after completing my shift I go home decontaminate take, on a good day, a 1-2hr nap before heading over to my elderly mother's apartment to attend to her needs. Preparing her meals, meds, taking her to medical appointments ad all else that's needed. I'm simply saying all healthcare workers are deserving and sacrifice alot to do our jobs but maybe this decision for the Superbowl Tickets could have had better stipulations to insure the tickets where truly being received by people who otherwise would never have a chance to be picked to go and be part of something so uplifting in times like these.

  7. 👏👏👏👏👍👍👍❤️❤️❤️❤️

  8. UNITED CHINA 🇨🇳 lady and gentleman

  9. People still watch football? Why?

  10. U lucky people! Congrats!!

  11. How about pay no taxes since risking their lives from covid, not a a football game

  12. That's great and all, but what happens when 7,000 nurses are taken out of hospitals in the middle of a pandemic? Are we setting their colleagues who can't go up for failure?

  13. Such a stupid publicity stunt. Glad I stopped watching the NFL.

  14. We do thank the ones helping the sick. Ask for a real reward, for your own covered field of gardens and fruits to help the needs of all. Their are people staving around the world because of drought and climate change because of all the pollution clouds destroying the season; use the fields to feed people. Stop using the land to entertain debt, and a system to a corrupted blood spilling toxic smog creating demons that's oppressor's to all walks of life.

  15. Super bowl tickets !! Yes!! But these men and women deserve a friggin statue or holiday

  16. I want tickets too 😥😭😭😭😭

  17. That's it? Guests at the super bowl? I thought he was going to donate a large sum of money or something…… you people are going to break out crying because you're going to a football game 🤔🤦‍♂️

  18. Roger goodwill you trying to polish the image of all pro sports is like lip stick on a pig . You bunch of steroid using , drug addicted, law braking, wife beating , over paid SOBs . 😎🇺🇸

  19. Who’s cutting onions🤦‍♂️

  20. They are the brave ones and Deserve everything plus more 🥰

  21. 🥰🇺🇸🥰🇺🇸🥰🇺🇸😁 see how amazing America is with Biden at the White House 🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🇺🇸🥰🇺🇸🥰🇺🇸🥰

  22. That’s how we should live! With gratitude!

  23. Supper bowl tickets big deal and the health care workers are no better then the homeless we the people don't owe them nothing ever.

  24. The white house website has censored comments for the first time in it's inception. The ratio of likes to dislikes to videos plummeted since january 20. Now at 80% dislike to 20% like. What lefties don't understand is that in 10 years, when this is over, all voices will be suppressed with the measures established now. All people will be rounded up for "trespassing" and charged with draconian Rico laws, as they are doing now. I wish they would at least think of their own futures in this crumbling Democracy.

  25. All got there vaccinations. Sure, I get it. A Super Bowl with empty seats looks amazingly bad for the NFL.

  26. – "Stay Home"

    – "Mind your own business!"

    – "You're a conspiracy theorist"

  27. I hope America will finally come to peace .. Ladies and gentlemen, sorry that my text is off topic! .. I am from Russia, I live in Siberia, I am 63 years old, I position myself as an Inventor! For obvious reasons, my know-how did not find popularity in Russia, in a country where 50% of the budget is formed from fossil fuels, my invention is doomed to be forgotten! I hope for caring business people who are not indifferent to the environment and nature. My power take-off rotor (conveyor type) will allow you to get energy from water flow (rivers, sea currents) on an industrial scale, using my underwater power plants without a dam, will help you avoid burning: coal, gas, oil, atom … I am looking for a sponsor. … investor (non-proprietary), my address is: genapopovgena2018genady@yandex.ru …. It's great if my message reaches the office of President Baydon, who cares for the environment!

  28. Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
    Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
    “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted".

    You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

    "If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land."

    And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

    "Matthew 5-7 NIV Bible Gateway", we can use google search.
    These are the teachings,
    The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
    REPENT, and start doing what is right.
    If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

    In the New Heaven and New Earth,
    only Righteousness dwells.
    May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.

  29. This is what matters. Give back to those who get little recognition. My daughters are nurses.

  30. Glad to hear NFL ratings and income from other sources will result in May offs thus year with rapid decline players will lose salaries.

  31. wow goodell please when you talk please kneel down ok

  32. So instead of receiving money to pay off bills or spending a day relaxing at a spa they are sent to a noisy place ?? I know I would be too exhausted to even go.

  34. Thank God we are comfortable with money enough to homeschool our children. We teach them about American Greatness.
    We teach them that all Democrats are racist, socialist, terrorists! You know, the truth.

  35. Health care workers should be paid as much as the commissioners

  36. That was so nice. I feel the same way. They have been the ones working day and night. They don't see their family for days. Because they are taking care of us. My friend is a nurse. So I know what they do and that's why these nurses, doctors,& EMTs ARE THE HERO'S . Im a caregiver but since the covid-19 I chose to just take care of my disabled nephew. Hes been with me since he was 14 months old. He'll be 25 in March. Hes developmentally delayed because my sister did drugs and drank during pregnancy and now he has tarkdive diskenesia. Because his meds weren't refilled for a month. It's a very scary thing. And he will have this for ever. Hes on strong meds do when you stop taking them abruptly this is the side effect. So when the pandemic came I just decided this was the safest way to go for now. Thank You so much for all you guys do. My nephew said Thank You ❤️. Stay Safe & have fun at the super bowl.
    🙏😇💜 Love Sara and Vincent

  37. Wow. 4,000 dead a day and they're planning to infect medical personnel in a superspreader event. I thought nothing could shock me anymore. This is immoral.

  38. a lovely gesture which we can all reinforce by wearing good, real masks when in proximity to people outside our households and by avoiding risky behaviors. to give these good folks a break and show care for those around us.

  39. Health care workers are real life angels among us, we owe them and their families so much, show them our gratitude by wearing a mask.
    Be part of the solution not part of the problem.

  40. Right. While you guys are playing a game,you're expecting the health care workers to NOT be at the hospitals where they are understaffed and experiencing four thousand deaths per day, but instead ignore everything and go to a super-spreader event like the past year didn't mean anything. My old boss used to do that, give us tickets for nights we had inescapable shifts and then LAUGH about it.

  41. Psalms 92:7.
    When the wicked spring as the grass, and
    when all the workers of iniquity do flourish;
    it is that they shall be destroyed
    for ever:

  42. Aren't they busy and too exhausted mentally to fight covid patients?

  43. “For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words. Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him.” #LordJesusiscoming
