    As with any sporting event, more people usually show up then actually go to the game. Some people just want to take part of the weekly festivities or tailgate outside during the game. Some people just want to be where the party is. 76,000+ might have been in the stadium for the game itself, but I bet that number is at least double if not triple of who showed up during the week. That means each person is probably spending around $1500-2000 over the entire week. $200-300 a day at the Super Bowl location? Easily. To bring up your Disney comparison, you are EASILY spending that much at a week at Disney World. Price a Disney cruise and see how much you are spending for a week.

    dont buy those numbers at all. It would be more profitable to give that money to something that would bring in money all year. Here is a unique idea let the nfl pay for their own damn stadiums they make plenty of money. No excuse for the second richest owner taking corporate welfare. If we are investing in stadium then we should own part of the stadium. Many of these people would be in NO or Miami regardless but of course the NFL wants you to forget that.

    Many economic experts argue the real economic impact is like 100 million so lets say we host 2 superbowls in 10 years which is fairly logical but not guaranteed since the nfl has figured out this wonderful new scam.
    In 10 years Im pretty sure we get hit up for even more .

    Men, I've been to five superbowls. In Order Indy by far was the best(not enough hotels) Tampa twice(bad traffic both times) , miami(too spread out and my god bad weather) and Detroit.

    Miami at Indy next year. Great place to see a game, and tailgate!

    Qualcomm is too old now, but here in San Diego is the perfect weather.

    Yep, if the Chargers can somehow manage to get a new stadium and Los Angeles manages to get a team, So Cal would probably be hosting Super Bowls every 3 to 5 years. It's unfortunate that this region of 22+million people and great weather hasn't hosted a Super Bowl in 10 years, and might not for a while.
    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.
