On the latest episode of SI Media with Jimmy Traina, Good Morning Football host Kyle Brandt made his case for something many NFL would like to see: The Super Bowl being played on Saturday instead of Sunday.
When asked if he’s happy with the NFL giving fans a game on Black Friday this upcoming season, Brandt said, “I think the Black Friday game walks so that Super Bowl Saturday can run.”
“I’ve been pushing for that for years. I want Super Bowl Saturday. I got to interview Goodell once, Goodell and I have a very comfortable, jocular relationship, and I pitched him on the air, Super Bowl Saturday Roger. I just wanna speak for the people. Yes, if you’re thinking it’s because I wanna drink and eat with impunity, yes, that’s the reason why. Why can’t we make this on Saturday? And he laughed, but he gave the answer, well the audience on Sunday blah, blah, blah, and I get it, but I don’t care. I want it on Saturday.”
Other topics discussed with Brandt on the podcast include his his busy schedule, co-hosting Good Morning Football and hosting Kyle Brandt's Basement, five days a week, in addition to taking on other projects. He also talks about interviewing Josh Allen every week, cast changes at GMFB, auditioning for the ManningCast and why it's OK to say no to sports media jobs, the Aaron Rodgers-New York marriage, Monday Night Football getting flex scheduling next season, Las Vegas brothels offering Jimmy Garoppolo free sex for life, Anthony Richardson's jumping ability, elevator etiquette, people who complain to you in stores and much more.
