Doesn't matter most folks will be housed in DC, very few stadiums in the NFL are housed in the best part of town. If SB came here hotel rooms would be booked out to B-more and beyond.

I'm sure Detroit is not much of a pretty sight either...and while Indianapolis may be a nice city, it probably sucks in January.

Personally, I would keep the Super Bowl only in three cities: Miami, New Orleans, and San Diego.

How about parking? That would be a nice change of ways? And if snyder wanted could he put a retractable roof on?

Re: Cold weather Super Bowls on the way

I think NO should be the permanent home of the Super Bowl. The stadium is a dome so weather for players and fans wont be an issue. The Quarter has all the hotels, bars & restaurants anyone could want and the stadium is close by so most attending the game can walk from hotel to the stadium. Its a perfect setup.

Re: Cold weather Super Bowls on the way

NO is a dump too, walk down the wrong street & you will be sorry just ask any guide & hotel concierge. SD made lots of money of SB's and they won't build a new stadium for SD.

NO isnt great most weeks but when the SB is in town its fine as there are lots of cops making sure none of the tourists have a problem.

That would be the same anywhere if the SB is their more cops will be put on to make it safe the SB could be held anywhere dump or no dump. A coworker of mine goes down to Tenn during Elvis week & he tells me, that place is a dump but during that week cops are out in full.

True. All I'm saying is that everything is in close proximity in NO and that's what makes it a great spot for a SB.

yeah some cities like detroit and cincy and indy might not be the greatest cities but the stadium is in the city. could you imagine the hell that would be the beltway if it was here. thats why i would think b more has a better chance than us atleast their stadium is in the city. b-more and dc are a good 30 minutes and thats with clear sailing from fedex. it's not a terrible stadium and the new screens should be awesome they are long overdue, but it's in the middle of butt-f md

Re: Cold weather Super Bowls on the way

I think New orleans, Miami, San Degio, and all the others are extremely played out and it is time for the rest of the NFL to have a chance to host the Super Bowl.

Re: Cold weather Super Bowls on the way

I don't know about Fed-Ex getting it done. I would be surprised if we ever get on there, but who knows. I would think it would take the Redskins building a new building to recieve one. BTW Indy is a crappy city. I went to the formula One races there in 2000-04, not the greatest pace in the world. Niether is Detroit for that matter. A friend of mine is from Detroit and went to the Steelers Seahawks game. After the game Detroit was literally a ghost town on monday. He said it was very freaky.

Re: Cold weather Super Bowls on the way

I do not believe the argument against cold weather cities hosting the SB is about the game itself. Rather, the people that generally attend a SB are coming a week early for the parties and other activities. Cold weather not conducive to outdoor stuff like golf, beaches, etc. Not to mention travel logistics if you really hit a cold snap?
