Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
To many, the NFL stands for the "No Fun League." And that certainly applies when it comes to Super Bowl XLVII and its associated legal liability waivers.

The NFL is a business entity first. And that is clearly evident when you look at all the steps the league took to protect itself from liability.
So should you avoid some of these Super Bowl festivities due to the waivers and legal forms you'll have to sign? That's up to you, though the chances of someone being injured at the NFL Experience or through a sweepstakes shouldn't be all that great. You'll just have to go into these events knowing that you're essentially on your own, legally speaking, once you sign off on that Super Bowl liability waiver.
