I think they really want to give it to Miami, but are putting the screws to Ross to upgrade the stadium first. The notion that they'll give it to Santa Clara because it's a new stadium is fine on the surface, but they could just as easily give SB 51 (or 52, or 53, etc.) to them instead.

Since they won't announce the winner until 2013, this gives Ross some time to figure out a way to pay for it, one that probably involves little to no taxpayer money.
