Itís reassuring to know the world is crazier than you are. - Erik Selvig, Thor: The Dark World
I wish the NFL would give every city a fair shot at hosting the Super Bowl. I would love to see a snow game, give a Super Bowl to Green Bay, their stadium has more history than all of the rest.
Goodell made it easy for the Miami Super Bowl Committee say, "Why not Miami? Didn't you just say the game was made to be played in the elements?" Oh that's just a convenience statement to defend f____n New York and the decision to play there. Plus the NFL has to look at the week's weather for the sake of their NFL Experience event. The rain in Miami is fleeting if at all, the cold is freakin cold all week in the north or Dallas. See Dallas Super Bowl - even they got hit by severe cold and ruined the week. Thats not happening in Miami.
This whole issue is just a power play by the league. It is extortion in a sense. There is no valid reason that Miami should not have the super bowl every 4-5 years.
Seriously tho, I like the idea of every NFL stadium getting a Super Bowl. I have always thought weather is a part of the game. Heck, I love watching games in the snow and rain (and always thankful I'm not there!!!).
I hope five feet of snow falls on the NYC Metro next year. Karma!
The Superbowl is in early February . . . if it rains, it certainly won't last long. It just doesn't really rain this time of year in South Florida. This isn't July/August we are talking.
And big deal if it does rain, Goodell certainly is turning this sport into some powder puff stuff all around. It has been proven time and time again that nobody puts on a pre Super Bowl week like Miami and a big part of that is because the weather is so good. The stadium is great when it is full . . . we saw that at the BCS title game.
I don't get what's the big deal about some snow or rain in the Super Bowl, this is football not baseball. It's suppose to be that way.
