    Should Miami spend $1,000,000,000 in order to maybe get a pay off perhaps $50,000,000 in the future? (Hint, count the zeroes)

    I beg to differ.....Going back to 2009, if not before, Commissioner Goodell has repeatedly said that upgrades need to be made to the stadium if Miami is going to be competitive in the Superbowl bidding process.

    Of course most other places don't have the kind of weather that Miami has in February, so you probably will see Miami and New Orleans always in the bidding, even though there are newer and better stadiums.

    Lets see if they are asking for more welfare for billionaires. Amazing how the nfl keeps squeezing public money away from everything else when they are quite capable of financing their own stadiums.

    The upgrades are rumored to cost about $100 million, one superbowl could pay for that.

    Weather is no longer a factor. New York hosts 2014 and Goodell is talking about wanting one in Denver. Footbal was made to be played in the elements and he knows that.

    Even the ****ing Raiders are getting a new stadium. THE FREAKING RAIDERS. And Goodell has even said the NFL will help fund it. I don't get why we can't get a new stadium, seriously.
    I don't see a guarantee Oakland is getting a new stadium. In looking at info on the 'net about it, it seems to be a possibility. They might share the new 49ers new stadium for 2 years before they get their own place. That's bat**** dumb.

    If it's 19 degrees in Denver now for the AFC Divisional Game, can you imagine what it would be like at the end of Jan/early Feb for the Super Bowl? That would be ridiculous to have all the rich a-holes at the Super Bowl sit in that cold weather to watch the game.

    No different then sitting through a winter storm in New York. Its all about money and the city that bids the highest will be hosting.
