Yeah, that's the carrot the NFL has been using to get teams new stadiums (stadia?): "Build 'em a new stadium and we'll give you a Super Bowl!"

The stick? "We're still considering all options to return football to Los Angeles."

Should Lucas Oil Stadium get the game, it would be the first cold-weather stadium to host two Super Bowls.

biatch, please - winters in Indianapolis are nothing compared to up here. In fact, Green Bay and Chicago should be farking celebrating that our idiot state and the Vikings opted for an indoor stadium - we don't have a lake keeping our winters moderate.

It will be New Orleans.

So what happens if they give it to Minnesota and the team ends up moving? Does it go to LA with them? Do they play it in Minnesota anyway as a "fark you, here's what you're not seeing for the next 20 years" move? Do they pick another team?

Hatd to imagine a worse hosting job than half the stadium blacking-out in the middle of the game. Maybe a dome collapse or a fire.

If they do that way then the 70 y.o. men on the selection committee won't get any blow-jobs from the young "hostesses" representing the city trying to attract the Super bowl.

The new stadium in Minnesota looks pretty badass.  I think they should win just for that.  Then they should have one in Denver.  We built a new stadium years ago.  You owe us mofarkers.

A Super Bowl in last years playoff game conditions would be highlarious.  Weird thing is 3/4 of our winter days are sunny and in the 50s.  But when it's not it's farking not.

Just wait until this year's game is played in an ice storm that makes The Day After Tomorrow look like a mild flurry and all the corporate types stay at Flashdancers in the city instead of being carried by Sherpa to their seats. You'll never see a Super Bowl north of Miami ever again.

It'll be Minneapolis.  Presuming they'll have a retractable roof facility (haven't seen the plans).  New stadia always get selected over older ones.

It's the circus component of bread & circuses. Indy was truley fortunate enough to get the weather we experienced when we hosted the game, but my wife nailed it when she said that they planned extensively for bad weather, but they didn't plan for such good weather. The crowd size was too big. You stood for 3 or 4 minutes at a time because there was no where to move in the middle of Meridian St. It would have taken a small moment of panic to induce a stampede of unfortunate consequence.

This. All 32 teams contribute to the bill of cash, it's only fair that they get to host it once, too. Instead of the usual "New Orleans, Dome or New Stadium".

It is hilarious that everyone biatched about the cold weather we had in Dallas for SB45.  This year's SB might as well be held on the Arctic Circle.  I'm hoping for 100% white out conditions and 6' of snow for New Jersey. Folks will be looking fondly at Jerry World then and many shubs and zuuls will know what it is to be roasted in the fires of the Sloar that day, I can tell you.

San Diego - Miami - New Orleans - Tampa rotation. Maybe mix in an occasional Texas or Arizona location.

That works. The Chargers can tell the city no more Super Bowls until they get a new stadium. Maybe they're doing that already.
 
2013-10-09 09:43:08 AM  
Somehow, I bet the last three or four times the Super Bowl has played in New Orleans, the hosting has been measurably better than the three times the game was played in Tulane Stadium.

On the other hand, those of us born after the merger will never be able to fathom just how much the inter-league meetings at those Super Bowls must have been like.  Especially at IV, the year after the Jets defense smacked Earl Morrall naked and pawned his clothes.  I'll bet that board room was hotter than the conference shed on the Korean border.

The Vikings already extorted got the money from the state to build a stadium and it's in the works as we speak.  The possibility of the Vikings moving any time soon was killed when they got the money.

ChrisDe: San Diego - Miami - New Orleans - Tampa rotation. Maybe mix in an occasional Texas or Arizona location.


If the local power grid can't support a super bowl, then that city shouldn't be the host again until that gets fixed.

When I think of Tampa I think of the beaches nearby, bar hopping in the Ybor City district, the gorgeous women at the Mons Venus, and a nice juicy steak and a glass of wine from the world's largest wine list at Bern's.

When I think of Phoenix I think sand, scorpions, Joe Arpaio, and massive quantities of old people.

Suit yourself.

c) City that has had it 10 times and has gotten worse each time it's hosted

Subby must be a Falcons fan?  No city is better suited for hosting massive events like this, at any time of the year. An extra 100,000 people in town for a few days is a drop in the bucket compared to what New Orleans handles for the weeks of Carnival.

The entire downtown/French Quarter/Warehouse District/Convention Center is all within walking distance and/or a very short cab ride...compare that to Miami & NJ, where the venues were/are miles apart. Most of New Orleans' hotels are also within walking distance of the venues.

I was in Indy for the Super Bowl. Nice folks, but when tens of thousands of people hit the downtown area on the Friday night before the game, it damned near crashed the infrastructure of city services.  New Orleans can handle ten times that on a Monday afternoon.  Indy also doesn't have the built-in hotel capacity for something like this...a lot of the hotels were a quite a drive away.

I'm not positive what you're saying. Are you saying that Chicago and Green Bay have milder winters than to Minneapolis?

Chicago and Green Bay both get more snowfall than the twin cities during the winter months (MN beats CHI on an annual basis because you get more into March), and MN has more sunny days during the winter. If you're talking temperature, GB is about the same as you and CHI is just 6-7 degrees F warmer.

Either way, I'm not sure why GB and CHI should be celebrating your dome. We're used to playing outdoors.

I enjoyed Tampa. Tampa had Beaches, Disney nearby, Busch Gardens(rollercoasters, zoo, and free beer), nice weather, plenty of hotels, and all women of reproductive age are required to work at Mons Venus.

As  a bonus, January is the one month not known as Hurricane season.

The nfl has all but said they won't ever hold a superbowl in green bay because there aren't enough amenities.

For one thing, the estimate they need 15k hotel rooms, and green bay only has about 2k.

Yeah Indy doesn't have the built-in hotel capacity, yet it manages to host the SB, the Final Four, the Indy 500 (250K attendees) and the Brickyard 400....

But the power never went out mid-game at Lucas Oil Stadium, so it has that going for it at least.
