Nope.

Jacksonville was the worst site for a Super Bowl, warm weather was its only saving grace.

Is Nashville capable enough to house what having a Super Bowl will involve?

Kid Rock will lead the Committee.... what could possibly go wrong?

They hosted an NFL draft which had a reported 400,000 in attendance.  Also, if they're going to throw more than $1 billion to build a "first class" stadium, they can certainly add those capabilities they are lacking.

Let's see...the stadium is only 23 years old. Try to make it for 30 before you consider new digs.

I wouldn't like to see them try.  This place already thinks it's a major city but has small city infrastructure.

In Atlanta, any pro sports facility older than 20 years is considered geriatric. It should be time soon for Phillips Arena to come crashing down.

I don't see what the NFL has to gain by attracting the bachelorette party scene. Giant penis balloons in the crowd?

was just about to say...

Falcons: Fulton County Stadium - 66-91, Georgia Dome - 92-16, Benz Stadium - 17-present
Braves: Fulton County Stadium - 66-96, Turner Field - 97-16, Truist Park - 17-present
Hawks: Alexander Coliseum (Ga. Tech) - 68-72 and 98, The Omni - 72-97, Philips/State Farm Arena - 99-present

That's why my beloved Lambeau Field will never host the Superbowl. Not enough hotel space.

Philips was remodeled a few years ago, so I'm not sure if you need to reset the clock.

That and the snow that's generally around that time of year.

/would love to see Lambeau host a Super Bowl

Won't someone think of those poor displaced bridal parties and redneck a-holes that have turned Lower Broadway into a smoldering turd?

/Yeah I'm going there in May because I can't place higher than my wife in the March Madness pool.

They're already getting a sweet deal on property taxes to upgrade the current stadium but sure, what's another 500 million?
 
2022-03-30 3:49:10 PM  
They have a bad waste collection problem that they should probably address first, but then again probably not where the vested people live. Also, really lousy transportation.
 
2022-03-30 5:05:00 PM  
Haven't even paid off the debt on the current place and asking for a new one?
 
2022-03-30 5:32:44 PM  
Gov. Bill Lee's representatives will meet with members of the state Legislature on Tuesday morning to request a $500 million increase in debt to help fund a professional football stadium in Nashville, two officials said.

Ladies and gentlemen, the party of small government and free enterprise.

I kinda read the article. It states that the city/county/whatever is prepared to throw 600 million in for repairs/upgrades, but some other agency or contractors or whatever said it would take a billion to get it in the shape necessary to be competitive or sustainable, or whatever. Like i said, I kinda read it.

If I'm told my stadium needs 1 billion in repairs to make it good again, and 600 has already been offered for repairs, then I'm probably just going to go ahead and build a new one with all the fancy crap. Build it with the entertainment district, put a training facility in it, find a way to run other sports in it, I dunno. I got nothing funny. Just build a new one.

You are correct if the facts are, but how much do you trust the folks quoting the billion to be unbiased?  You sure they are not working for the same folks who benefit the most from getting a new stadium?

It would be hilarious if the team moved back to Texas.
 
2022-03-30 9:03:16 PM  
When it comes to infrastructure week, this is what our politicians fall all over themselves to fund and build.

I was thinking the same thing about the Chiefs who are also considering moving.  Then the NFL could actually have a team in Dallas instead of Arlington.

This really is exhausting. A first-class stadium? What does that even mean? Heinz Field is 20 years old and open to the elements, it's largely made of exposed steel, and it is an amazing place to watch a game no matter what the weather is. And that was an inexpensive stadium even when it was built. Compared to the Death Star or Vegas or Kroenke's palace to himself it's low rent, but it has seats, bathrooms, concessions, great sight lines, and nobody who goes there leaves wishing the place had been better. Isn't that enough?

I just don't get the stadium competition thing. I kinda get it if the stadium is truly obsolete or everyone realizes that they made a mistake, but even Three Rivers Stadium lasted 30 years in spite of both of those conditions. 23 years old and it's time for a new stadium? That's just stupid.

In fairness, Nissan Stadium feels more like Vandy should play.  Caught a Raider/Titans game there in 2016 and in the west end zone there was one place for food and for a stadium that was in the upper 80s at the end of September there wasn't a scrap of shade around.  Not sure they can design around that though.

I was at the exact same game and fully agree that the lack of shade was brutal that day. If they were to renovate the place, some sort of roof structure over the fans like Seattle has would be nice. Could help out for rainy days as well. Concessions should be an easy fix. Just roll some food trucks into that giant plaza they don't seem to use. It's a nice enough venue for watching a game but nothing special.

No. The Death Star is in Dallas, so called because AT&T's logo has historically been referred to as such and also because Jerruh is an evil old man who destroys things and people for fun.

Sure, kid.  Sure.

...as they will pursue a NHL team for the third time, to eventually lose it to Canada down the road.
