Not even the most British of recipes is saltier, more bitter, and more horribly misinformed than these hot takes from people who go on the Internet once a year to give some stupid Super Bowl comments.

Luckily, the NFL is going to be hurting financially because… racists want it to be:
Mentioned just days after Fox paid $600 million for the garbage Thursday Night Football slot.
