Super Bowl Media Day is when the press will pretend to cover players and coaches, who, in turn, will pretend to shed light on the issues of the day while also taking videos with their iPhones, clowning with credentialed ''reporters'' dressed up as superheroes and dodging the occasional wedding proposal. It is, at best, entertainment disguised as journalism, though not all of it is worthless or totally unmemorable. Since Super Bowl 50, players now address the media on Monday night at an event known as Super Bowl Opening Night, instead of the traditional Tuesday afternoon Media Day. The event is scheduled to last from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET, with one hour of interview time for each team.
