Super Bowl XLIX: Brawl at the End a Bad Look for NFL

Super Bowl Brawl Only Highlights a Really Bad Year in the NFL


Super Bowl XLIX is in the books, with the Patriots pulling out a 28-24 win, thanks to an interception by Malcolm Butler at the goal line. But instead of talking about the legacies of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady, who clinched their fourth Lombardi Trophy together, or even deflate-gate, we’re scratching our heads over that brawl the Seahawks appeared to instigate at the end, with Bruce Irvin being ejected. It doesn’t paint the NFL in a very flattering light.

Do you blame them for having an emotional meltdown though? Will Irvin face fines? What About Marshawn Lynch, who may have made his infamous, crude gesture? ABC News correspondent Alex Stone joined us from Phoenix to discuss it.
