So, what.....have it in Miami, Tampa, Arizona and Houston every season? WAAAAAH ITS TOO COLD! Whats the big f*cking deal? So, by your logic, they should move a conference championship game if its played in New York or New England, or some other cold place.

 

I'm with DOOM! on this, if you can't stand cold weather, too bad.

I'm all for it. That whole 55degree rule never made sense to me. Honestly, I think the super bowl should be handled in the same manner as other sports. The top team should have home field advantage. Even better would be a super bowl that was like a best of 3 series. 1-home, 1-away, and 1-at a neutral location.

 

It will be nice to see winter football in a winter setting. It would be great if it was a crazy snowy game.

 

remember people...this is football, not baseball where they don't even play in the rain.

At least your venues change. In Australia, the AFL Grand Final match is held in the same place every year. It is the biggest stadium in the country, but still the same one in the same city.

NFL Championship games, NOT Super Bowls, had been held in cold weather venues all over the country prior to the Super Bowl era. Lambeau Field, Yankee Stadium, Wrigley Field, Shibe Park, the Polo Grounds, they all held the NFL Championship and last time I checked, they all get snow. Having it in a warm climate is good, but it doesn't guarantee a good game weather-wise. Remember Super Bowl XLI (41) between the Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears? That game was held in Miami and the weather was TERRIBLE! It rained throughout the entire game and made it a very sloppy game because the field was so saturated. That was one of the worst Super Bowl games I've ever seen, mainly due to the rain. Jacksonville is warm, but fans complained that there was nothing to do there.

 

New York is cold, I can attest to that being born and raised on the Upper East side. But, the New Meadowlands Stadium construction cost was $1.6 billion, yes, BILLION. The venue is sufficient, there's no doubt about that. Midtown Manhattan is also only about a 35 minute drive, without traffic, from the Meadowlands. With traffic (which there always is) you're looking more along the lines of at least one hour. Most fans will be staying in Manhattan the week leading up to the game, which has anything you could think of and all the stuff tourists love. Think about it, it's not a stupid idea. Limiting the Super Bowl to mainly the southern and southwestern region of the country is a stupid idea.

This. How many Super Bowls have been held in Tampa, Miami or Jacksonville.....seriously.

I've always disliked the fact that almost every SB lately has been held in Florida. For the same reasons, I think the Pro Bowl should be held in a random venue every year. We ALL want to see the stars of football play a fun game that has no consequence. Instead, we're basically forced to take a trip to Hawaii or.. guess where.. Florida if we want to see them all in one game.

 

I think it's ridiculous. Football is an all-weather sport. We will have so many classic and memorable moments now that SBs are likely to be played in more venues across the country.

 

 

Because as it currently stands, the last weather-related SB memory is Donovan McNabb puking from almost having a heat stroke in Jacksonville (SB 39). Wow, one for the ages, that one.

I just hope when my Colts are playing in that Superbowl, that it's not a blizzard or anything.

I like your style, Urban.

 

If I wanted to be like you at all, I'd have this to say. I just hope when my Eagles are playing in that NFC championship.. they actually win.

Personally, as a neutral supporter of NFL in general, I've never understood why they don't choose the venue in December/January when they know who will be contesting the SuperBowl (it'll have it's problems, but I'm sure they can be circumvented), and most importantly, why they don't choose a venue which is a neutral venue and equal distance between each sides i.e. if the sides come from Indiana and Kansas, then you host the SuperBowl in Iowa or Illinois. This way they are not favouring either side and both sets of fans have equal distance to travel to the 'Bowl.

 

We used (we now force all fans to travel to London for the Semi-Finals) to do this for the FA Cup Semi-Finals (Football/Soccer) in the UK (I know in context the United States is a lot larger than England, but it's the principle of the idea). Say Aston Villa (Midlands) and Newcastle United (North) were contesting a Semi-Final, the venue chosen would be Old Trafford (Man Utd, north of England, pretty much in-between both sides), but if Arsenal and Tottenham (London sides) were drawn together then they would select Stamford Bridge (Chelsea/London) or an equal, neutral London venue of eligible capacity to reduce travelling time for the fans.

The NFL choses the location of the Super Bowl, usually 3-5 years before the game. The selection is made in Chicago by NFL owners. Cities bid to host the game and are evaluated by various criteria including stadium renovation, parking, transportation, seating capacity, weather and accommodations among other items. A lot of times they choose fan friendly area, where there is much to do in the week leading up to the event. Fans love having the Super Bowl in Miami and New Orleans, evident by how many times they have hosted the game. However, fans hated the game being held in Jacksonville. Jacksonville does not have much to do, especially for tourists. It's not a tourist city, whereas Miami and New Orleans are. That's another thing they keep in mind.

 

The reason they select the stadium so long in advance, instead of weeks before, I would assume it's so the stadium management can prepare the field, seating, parking, concessions and, most importantly, the security. That would be my best guess as to why it's chosen years before.

It's about f*cking time that a Super Bowl will be held in the NY metropolitan area. Being a New Yorker, I'm very happy that they've finally chosen my hometown/area to host the league's biggest game. New York is the biggest and most popular city in the country, and the city itself is an American icon.

 

And to reiterate a previous point, this is football. Some of the greatest football games of all time have been played in the cold, rain or snow. They're finally appeasing to the true fans as opposed to the ones with money who want a lofty box to watch the game down in Miami.

For the record, Van Shake is a fraud. He hasn't been a legitimate New Yorker in years. He's from PA and is serving a great injustice to the Eagles fan he could have been.

my favorite team is the chargers, so it doesn't look like this is going to affect my team much, still think its a bad idea though, the super bowl should be played in the best places weatherwise because its the biggest game

That, and the whole city has to prepare, have a plan for traffic, security (outside the stadium) etc.

 

It's supposed to be a neutral site, but say this past SB had been slated for New Orleans and the Saints advanced to play there, then it's a home game.

 

The 49ers played a SB at Stanford Stadium and the Rams played one at the Rose Bowl when they were still in Los Angeles (well, Anaheim) so there have been two cases where a team played for the title in its home market.

 

 

However, fans hated the game being held in Jacksonville. Jacksonville does not have much to do, especially for tourists. It's not a tourist city

 

I suspect this is why Houston hasn't gotten another one. There are things to do here (I live not very far from Reliant Stadium) but it's just not all in one "hot spot" like the French Quarter or South Beach. I'm kind of glad, because if I lived in NOLA or Miami I'd avoid those places like the plague like most locals in either place.

 

Dallas-Fort Worth and Phoenix aren't exactly tourist meccas either, and both have stadiums that are Super Bowl caliber but both are located in the suburbs.

 

As far as this New York Super Bowl (in New Jersey) - whatever. I bet if there's a blizzard it won't happen again, but I kind of hope the weather's good enough on game day. If there was a place to have an outdoor SB up north, that's the best place to do it.

Uh, dude, you don't know what the f*ck goes on in my real life (or do you...?). Currently, I do not live in NY, but I was born in Queens, lived there for years and I constantly go to the city. I am a die hard New Yorker. f*ck the Eagles, and f*ck PA as well.

 

Also, f*ck the Phillies. They're c*nts.
