Re: Cold weather Super Bowls on the way

I like it alot. I have never been a fan of limiting the SB to warm weather climates and in-door stadiums. While the benefit may only be borne upon a small percentile chance, I hate the fact that the boys have a chance to play in a SB in their home stadium once every 10 or 15 years or so while the skins have zero chance of ever being host to a SB they are playing in.

Also, i like the idea of spreading the event around to all the nfl cities. why should the san diego or miami or arizona cities get the financial windfall? san diego as a city has been a horrible host and accomodator for the chargers to the point the chargers want out after san diego county failed to secure them decent new locations for the new stadium.

If it cuts the halftime show shorter, I'm all for it.

Re: Cold weather Super Bowls on the way

I just don't understand the argument against it. The playoffs can be in cold weather but not the Super Bowl? I say it's about damn time.

If NY gets it, then we better be getting one damn quickly behind.

He has to get the team out of Fed EX first. It's sad to say but the stadium is outdated with all of these new ones popping up all over the place. If you don't have a dome or warm climate, then you need one of these new state of the art deals before the owners will consider your bid for a SuperBowl. Fed EX Field just will not cut it.

It can't be more or less outdated then the Super Dome and it holds the most in the NFL, I would think it would be a prime location.

Plus concerned the amount hotel space in DC area, yeah it will heavily considered.

Re: Cold weather Super Bowls on the way

To make the superbowl you often have to go through cold weather cities, so the teams that make it are the ones who can weather the elements. They should win under the same conditions.

I'm of the mind that if you want to prove you're a champion, you have to prove you're the best under any conditions. Weather should not be a factor. You should be able to win in the Superdome just as much as Lambeau.

Rotate to all 32 stadiums like baseball's all star game, with the only exception being if the NFL stadium is too small.

I'm sure he'll get it up to speed if the carrot is there for a potential Super Bowl. The HD screens going in are probably just the beginning of the upgrades.
