Super Bowl Media Day Isn't What It Used To Be

Super Bowl media day sure is different than what it used to be. Back in the day, media day wasn't an all-day NFL Network extravaganza. Instead, it was a small group of reporters getting together in one place to interview players for the Super Bowl. The focus was actually, you know, the players that will be in the game.

But now...it's an event. NFL Network will be airing media day live and the league has actually sold over 7,000 tickets for media day. Check out the fans lining up outside Lucas Oil Stadium on Tuesday morning (via @AlbertBreer):

Bob Kravitz of the Indy Star notes that Super Bowl I had 338 media credentials. This year, the league issued over 5,000 credentials to media members. One reporter remembers sitting at a table with just a handful of people interviewing Roger Staubach at Super Bowl X. Now, that table would have more than four dozen media members surrounding it.

Yeah, things are a little different these days.

We'll be live-blogging all the happenings at media day so stick around this StoryStream for updates. For more on the Giants, visit SB Nation's Big Blue View. And for the Patriots, Pats Pulpit.
