I remember there being some push back about The Who playing halftime.  Neil Best of Newsday argued enough already with the classic rock seemingly year after year.  I got into a little bit of a back and forth with Neil on this point.  Neil is someone I know and respect and a great writer who I enjoy reading whenever he has something in the Newsday sports section. The Who did the medley thing and I think it was difficult for them to translate into 12 minutes. By the way, the ONLY artist that I'm aware of who has exceeded the 12 minutes rule is Paul McCartney.  I mean, who's going to fight with a Beatle over a minute?  Right?
