NFL Already Planning On Weather Contingencies For Next Years Super Bowl - "Plan B"

Looks like last weeks blizzard has the NFL worrying about next years Super Bowl in the cold weather.


"The winter storm that hit the northeast last week highlighted the concerns that have previously kept the Super Bowl from being played in outdoor stadiums in cold weather environments.

According to the Sports Business Journal, the NFL is considering several options that include delaying the game several days or even moving the game up to Saturday if an especially nasty forecast is the picture.

Several logistical problems are presented if the game has to be delayed and not held on Sunday. Fans that will have planned on leaving on Monday will be forced to change their flights and hotel reservations to stay longer. If the game has to be postponed due to inclement weather, itís reasonable to assume the airports will have had to cancel many flights as well furthering the logjam of displaced travelers."

This could me a major cluster ****.

I know but that's what they said in Dallas a couple of years ago.

MAJOR cluster ****.

Jerrah had that whole gig ****ed up from the start with temporary seating that didn't work out, ice all over the road that they hadn't planned for, etc.

The weather for the SB last week in NOLA was about as good as it gets.

It wasn't the Hunt's who didn't want the dome. It was the Jackson County Taxpayers who voted it down.

I do not blame the taxpayers either.
Look at the chances of the Chiefs going to the SB.

Why pay taxes to watch the SB in your town on TV due to the cost since its not a game for the average fan.

Also so us people oversees can watch on the weekend too.

If you ever wanted to sell Goodell on the idea using the non-US market would be the way to go. I bet you get him drooling with the opening sentence alone.

And I really couldn't blame them.
And on the downside, they live in Jacksonville.

I saw a mock of this idea years ago when I was delivering paper to a KC architecture firm.

A giant arch on a tram that could move from Arrowhead to the K. Looked like something a 5 year old would come up with or something out of a 1915 Popular Mechanics.

I think the precedent has been set. If you are northern city but not a glamour one like NY, you better have a dome if you want a Super Bowl.
