Football should be so cool that it shrugs its mesomorphic shoulders and points at a map and says, "We're playing the championship game here," whether it's in Chicago or Miami or Finland. Football should not be extending its lower lip and saying, "We only want championship games where it's warm and sunny." Cold and snowy are the womb from which Football was birthed.
This isn't 1975.
The Super Bowl is an event that draws THOUSANDS of people from all over the country.
Letting them freeze in New York or Detroit is just stupid.
All of those nostaligic scenarios you're talking about happened when championship games WEREN'T played on neutral fields.
If you want Super Bowls to be played in the cold and snow, go back to having them played on somebody's home field and don't make it a 2-week all-out media extravaganza.
