Sin_City_Superhero: Of the 47 Superbowls played, 10 have been in New Orleans, 10 have been in the Miami area, and 7 have been in the greater LA area. I think those three cities have had it enough times. Let some of the other teams host it.

One of the reasons New Orleans has had it so many times is that the Dome is smack dab in the middle of downtown, in walking/stumbling distance from a ton of nice hotels that have the room availability to support such a major event. Then there's also approximately 14 gajillion restaurants, bars and other entertainment also in walking distance. And I mean like a few blocks down the street, not two miles. Fans seem to have a better party time here than, say, Jacksonville because hell, that's what this city does best. Also, the NOPD (for all its other problems) is one of the premiere crowd control departments in the country. We do it so many times per year with various festivals and of course Mardis Gras that all that practice has made them virtually perfect in that regard.

NOLA is actually quite small, but when it comes to hosting huge events few can do better. That the NFL has chosen to it so many times is testament to that.

Or, y'know, keep 'em in those areas since those areas have the infrastructure to support it and are enjoyable places to have a February game.

Robo Beat: bhcompy: mjohnson71: RoyFokker'sGhost: But, as my buddy pointed out, neither the NY Jets nor the NY Giant's actually play in the state of New York.Also, the Dallas Cowboys no longer play in the city limits of Dallas. So, much of my rage is subsided, vbut it's still a crappy deal.

I understand your reasoning somewhat. But according to Google Maps:
Times Square to MetLife Stadium: 9 miles
Downtown Dallas to Cowboys Stadium: 18 miles
Downtown SF to Levi's Stadium: 46 miles

I hope the 49ers proposal included a massive bus effort to bring everyone down from San Francisco.

The commute for most people is probably shorter now, particularly for the luxury suite holders. There's a reason why the Roski stadium for a "Los Angeles" team is being built in Diamond Bar on the Orange County border.

From Google Maps, it looks like there's a Caltrain stop right there, so between that and the freeway ramps they'll probably be alright.

CSB: A friend of mine and his wife bought a condo about halfway between AT&T Park and the Caltrain station near the stadium.  Spring and summer, they're always complaining about the noise and the crowds, which I don't understand, because it's not like they didn't know the thing was there before they bought.  I compare their situation to someone who goes to the Castro and complains about all the dongs everywhere.

the Caltrain station isnt actually all that close, but to be honest, I don't care. Games at the Stick have been overrun by assholes who cant handle their booze for several years now.  I'm actually more likely to go to the new stadium. Maybe you'll even be able to escape the parking lot in less than two hours now.

Yeah, came to say this. Santa Clara, where the new stadium is, is very much anti-fabulous. Rather drab and boring. It's a college town, but it's a Jesuit College town.
