The league told those teams they could apply. Personally I think its a bad idea. People are not going to pay the big bucks to sit freezing their cajones off. Additionally I don't want the Super Bowl to be decided by the playing conditions but by play on the field.

Maybe it has something to do with all the extra amenities and activities that NYC offers? That is a valid question though. Honestly, I really wish the Chiefs would build the roof and host the damn thing... 5 years from now, maybe they could be playing the SB in their own house!

Much more likely the case that the Jets or Giants will be playing in their own in 2014 though...

I'm tired of seeing the damn game indoors and in Miami/Tampa/San Diego. the game is played in the conditions all season long way would the Super Bowl be any different. The Super Bowl is the Super Bowl, the tickets will sell. If it were up to me the venue would go round robin to all cities let the entire league have the chance to see the game and get tickets.

Oh, they will sell, but perhaps not for the same $ a warm weather or indoor game will. Keep in mind the people that normally attend the Super Bowl aren't the same people that attend playoff games.

Baseball is stupid.

The season is too long and they end up playing the most important games in weather conditions that they won't play in during the regular season.

Football is an entirely different subject.

I totally agree. And I know they play at "home" stadiums, point is they play in any weather conditions that particular city is having they don;t pick venues based on average temps for region, stupid NFL, Domes and astroturf are an abomination.

The NFL should just pick a location and build a Super Bowl Stadium. That way it's in the same place every year. Make it the biggest stadium in the world with like 200,000 seats or something. Rent it out for concerts and whatnot for the other 364 days of the year.

That was just the league throwing them a bone because they built a new climate controlled stadium, don't look for any more SBs in Detroit anytime soon. Heck the Twin Cities even got one once. And I'm sure this NYC thing will be a one shot deal as well.

**** that, just go to some dry arid place in the US, and dig a 200 foot deep hole, then gently slop the soil back from there until you have a gigantic natural bowl. Throw down some pre-made seating and call it good. It should hold 200,000+ for a fraction of the cost.

Or they could go to Hawaii and beef up the stadium there, then they could have the SB AND Pro Bowl there every year! :)

I found this blurb interesting:
“Why not play it here?” Mara said. “As a league, we play some great football in cold weather. I do believe we have some momentum. A number of owners have expressed their support.”

I never really thought about the fact that the owners who keep getting screwed out of hosting the game could all just raise hell. There are a lot more "climate variable" stadiums than there are Miami stadiums.

I kinda like this idea, but they would build it in the Cayman Islands or something like that. I say (gambling be damned), they build it in Las Vegas. Great weather, great venue, lots of accommodations, and they want a team anyways. I know the NFL has a hardliner policy against Las Vegas, just spit-balling here.

No, but it should be limited to cities that can actually support a Super bowl. I dont agree with a round-robin scenario, which would allow cities like Buffalo, KC, Detroit etc to host a Superbowl when they just aren't built for a huge influx of people.

We would have another Jacksonville situation, which to my understanding, was a cluster-fuck.

Superbowls need to be held in cities that have more attractions than just the Superbowl. These people are not just going to see the game, they are going on vacation, attracting high dollar business execs, celebs, etc.

You need something to do for the week of the game, you need to have the proper transit system to support that kind of volume, and you need have enough Hotels to accomodate.
All of which, are found in warm weather, tourist cities.

I understand why you would want the SuperBowl in a warmer coastal city... I really do, but I also don't know that having the game in a cold weather city is a bad idea.

Look at some of the greatest games played in cold weather, snow conditions... did it make for the prettiest presentation on tv? Maybe not, but you can't tell me the games weren't great.

I could see issues with many of the 'non-game' festivities...

Now, the SuperBowl that will be held in Dallas... we don't have NY weather, but it can be just as horrible that time of year down here. The stadium has the roof, so they can protect the 'visual presentation', but it didn't stop them from giving Dallas a SB game.

The key factors regarding the city chosen should all be about how they can support the people, the events, transportation, etc.

I dont think there should be an issue with cold weather Super-Bowls, but something like NYC where it could be snowing, presents a huge problem. The Super Bowl is about more than just a game. It's a huge celebration. There is all the festivities leading up to the game, the half time show and the tourism.

There are just certain cities that just shouldn't host one. How do you pull off fireworks and a live half time show with a snow covered field? How do you get the stage and the hundreds of people and props, etc onto the field during a snow game? People are comparing Superbowls of 20 years ago to Superbowls of today, but things have changed way to much to make that comparison.

I think most posters here don't get how the Super Bowl works. Tickets don't go to local people.
Tickets go:
1. NFL Sponsors
2. NFL Office
3. 2 teams in the game
4. 30 other teams
5. Network partners
6. Local market

That is why hotel rooms and convention space are so important in sites. Most everyone at the game is from out of market.

NY man with guns arrested in Cairo
Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Egyptian authorities detained a passenger arriving at Cairo airport from New York on Wednesday after finding guns, bullets and knives in his baggage, an airport official told AFP.

Mohamed Ibrahim Marei, a US university professor of Egyptian origin, had flown in on an Egyptair flight from New York's JFK airport.

Customs officials noticed the passenger looked nervous and decided to open his luggage.

They found two handguns and 250 bullets hidden in metal boxes, the official said on condition of anonymity.

In a secret compartment in the bag, authorities also found two swords, five daggers and six knives, he added.

An investigation has been launched, the official said.

If you fail to see how the SB isn't about just the game anymore, then I'm sorry for you. It's about business, not about or are I. It's about revenue and the fat cats with fat wallets. It's about bringing tourism money to a city; selling air time.

This isn't the 60's anymore dude. No one want's to visit KC or Buffalo etc. They wanna come to Miami, SD, Dallas etc. Places where there is more to do then just sit in your hotel room.

These cities have to be set up for tourism, i.e proper transit systems, multiple attractions, good weather, hotels etc. NY has all that, despite the cold weather, which is why they are actually being considered for a SB unlike KC

some cities, just don't have that. Sorry, some cities just shouldn't be hosting SB's. Deal with it.

I think the owners are the ones that vote where the SuperBowl is to be held.
Either way on that. If the "NFL" picks the Meadowlands to host the SB in 2014 they will probably be opening a can of worms that they won't like. It would allow for other teams to say that the NFL has set a precident. They can't just pick one open air stadium and not allow the same chance to all of the other teams that have open air stadiums to host the SB. So they would be setting themselves up for lawsuits IMO.
