There's no need for him to worry about it because if he pisses off any more people he'll be assassinated before then. If he has anything resembling a functioning brain he'll have armed bodyguards with him the entire time he's in New Orleans for the super bowl.

No headline can mention Goodell without someone from New Orleans showing up with the internet tough guy routine.

Seconded. Actually I hope there's a massive blizzard early in the week that strands every media member in airports across the country.

Having a Super Bowl in the Northeast will be a such a money maker for the NFL they'll pay to put a dome on the Meadowlands. Ticket prices will be through the roof as every moron stockbroker and his buddies by blocks of tickets since they don't have to add the cost of the flight and hotel to their tickets.

He'll have a fine time in New Orleans, all jokes aside, I'm sure.  Nothing bad's gonna happen, or else the city wouldn't get the Super Bowl anymore.

That would be okay with me. I think if there's one thing the super bowl honestly needs, it's less media coverage.

agreed. This is an aberration for football. Might as well go as far away from the norm as possible. Ice bowl here we come.

Plus, obviously the Jets will be there. ;)

As inaccurate as "tundra" is to describe the field at Lambeau, it's even worse when discussing a stadium with artificial turf, like Giants Stadium.

Psh, my Saints will get there just to have the 2-week "holy shiat how will a dome team ever play in this" storyline going in, lol.

GiantRex: That would be okay with me. I think if there's one thing the super bowl honestly needs, it's less media coverage.


But how else will we get 800 "different" (no really, this one is new and unique, guys!) stories about the home life of the Harboughs, Colin K. being adopted, Ray Lewis retiring, Joe Flacco finally making it to "elite QB" status, some controversial commercial that we've not seen before, the half-time show, how NO has recovered (or not) from Hurricane Katrina, and stupid/silly/weird questions from Media Day? Not to mention the constant one-upmanship by each network in terms of the pregame show length and number of people on it, which I wouldn't be surprised to see ESPN start on Monday this year with a 50-person video split-screen.

Particularly that dome team, which is the definition of average whenever they play outside.

I wouldn't even want the Giants to deal with nasty February weather up here. I'd take it, obviously.

The cold weather wasn't a problem for the grilling teams or ESPN when we got that freak ice storm here in Fort Worth/Dallas. The ice prevented me from going anywhere but home and work (Downtown Fort Worth) but that put me in a prime spot to go check out the ESPN setup downtown, which was really cool.

i291.photobucket.com
The Saints had a massive spread and a firetruck blaring "The Saints are Coming"

i291.photobucket.com
The Broncos had the 2nd biggest setup, with a huge bus and lots of people around. They all seemed very, very cold which was sort of a surprise considering, you know, they're Broncos fans.

i291.photobucket.com
The Seahawks had a bus too, and it was much nicer. But there weren't nearly as many Seahawks fans. Probably because the bandwagon was empty at that point.

You don't know how many fans of a team there are until they're in the Super Bowl. AMIRITE PACKERS FAN WAVING A BRAND NEW PACKERS FLAG?

i291.photobucket.com
Appropriately, the Jets fans came in a short bus.

i291.photobucket.com
The Texans fans got there early and had a far more permanent setup. Their party was dead though.

i291.photobucket.com
SportsNation and Mike and Mike went on with no hitches at all. Mike and Mike was all cordoned off with a heater and wrapped up in a big plastic heat tent, but SportsNation went on with no heater or anything, and they stood out there for the whole show like it was no big deal.

The little fake field where they do their ridiculous walkthroughs was out although I never saw them use it. The lights on that thing were the most reliable source of heat out there.

Still waiting for the Seattle Rainy Super Bowl that was all but promised if we built a new stadium.

Tip from a Canadian who has been to 4 Grey Cups played outdoors with temps that are similar to what you would expect.

Drink and drink often. Oh yeah wear layers or something but really it's all about how much you can drink.

/drink

I've long considered the NFL decision makers a bunch of pussies for always holding the Super Bowl in domes and warm weather stadiums.

The players can play through anything. It's the big spenders who would have to sit outside in the elements they're most concerned about. Watching games where weather is a factor are always more entertaining.

You could have. Thing was totally unwatched. Just sitting off to the side.

You also could have just walked onto the SportsNation set in the middle of their broadcast. It was literally *right there*. You could have spit on Cowherd.

Supposedly the whole ESPN broadcast team spent most of the time getting trashed at the local bars, as did the Steelers team. The bar I go to regularly got some swag from the team, who went in there the first night and apparently stayed for a long, long time. I know a guy who works at the hotel the Steelers were staying in, and he said that one night pretty much the entire cast of ESPN was in there getting sloshed. I don't have any shots of that, though, because I was not allowed into the Omni because I wasn't media or the team. Every single bar down there was just packed. I had to go to a little-known Mexican food joint to get a drink, and even then I was shoulder to shoulder with Packers fans at the bar.

That's awesome that Drago's brought their fire truck.  They bring that to pretty much every festival here in NOLA.  Damn good grilled oysters.  And you can see/smell the smoke from like a 10 blocks away!

Thats the professionalism I expect from both parties.

I'm still on the fence about going to the SB up here, and I doubt it will be as much of a party. If my Packers go I'd prefer to just find fellow cheese heads in bars and make that place wreak of beer sweat. Better than putting down thousands.

They had grilled oysters?! I should have stopped and checked it out. They had the prime spot - just right in the middle of everything. I grabbed lunch down there and then went around looking at the grilling. The Texans won the tailgating cooking contest with their BBQ.

Play the Super Bowl on the home field of the team that had the worst season the previous year. It'd be like a consolation prize.

"We won only two games, but at least we have the Super Bowl."
 
2013-01-25 02:47:28 PM
I don't think I really give a damn WHERE the Super Bowl is played. How about Mongolia? Does Ulan Bator have ample bars and nightlife? Then it could work.

It wasn't really a short bus. It was one of those private buses for hire. Like a small party bus. I must have missed them cooking - there's a video of them grilling but I didn't see them. They said it took them something like 30 hours to get it here.

Maybe. I like him better than Stephen A. Smith or Skip Bayless. At least he has reasons for what he believes... even if I disagree. Except for USC. Guy won't shut up about them.

SportsNation was really entertaining live, though. Lots of real cool stuff going on, guests, they pulled out all the stops. Mike and Mike was ok, they just sort of did the show and then left.

Yep, thats what they're known for.  Hence the fire truck (which isn't real or there for safety, just a fun gimmick).  When they fire up the grill every few minutes, there's a TON of fire and smoke.

If they're going to start playing Super Bowls in outdoor stadiums in the northern part of the country, Seattle should get one. We have what's arguably the nicest stadium in the league, and it could create one of the most memorable games in Super Bowl history if there was a steady rain the whole game.

I cant really like the guy after what he said about John Wall not being a capable leader because of his father. Not that I ever really agreed with much of what he said before that. That being said I can see how the guy would be a good entertainer and know how to work a crowd.

Even though as a New Orleanian I selfishly want it here as much as possible... I totally agree.  I think Chicago should certainly get one.  Seattle, sure... is your stadium near the downtown/party areas?  That's kinda key, no matter what.  People want to walk or cab to all the hot spots.

The stadium is in the south downtown area (SoDo), and not a far walk or cab ride from a lot of the nightlife centers of town. There's also a hell of a lot of hotels within a couple miles, so there's no doubt we could handle all the out-of-towners. Seattle hasn't really hosted any major events since the MLB All-Star game 12 years ago, so we're overdue.

I went to the NFL Experience in Dallas the morning after the ice storm. It was awesome - even got a couple of autographs of some spares, including some dude named "Gronk"??

Until about 1 or 2 in the afternoon when all the ice starting melting and people starting braving the roads. Then, the NFL Experience became unbearable. Literally wall-to-wall people.

Yeah, as a resident, I wouldn't mind the excess traffic/congestion of partying out-of-towners mostly because the "nightlife centers" in proximity to the stadium are the douchiest parts I usually avoid anyway (Pioneer Square & Belltown especially).

Like these pics. When the Owl was in Houston, it rained hard pretty much the whole week so we didn't really see much. Maybe we'll get another chance. Reliant will be putting an overhead screen bigger
than the one in Dallas (I think) this
year which is thinly veiled attempt at another game.

Doubt it though, since I heard Houston pissed off all the media by not comping all their partying. Plus you gotta go outside downtown if you want to get to anything good.
