Does Anyone Care Where the Super Bowl Is Played?

Is this a big deal? Rodger Goodell, and every media outlet seems to be making it a top story. Whoopity do, the NFL has never had a snow/cold Super Bowl! I’ve talked to a few people since I heard the news and heard pretty much the same reaction: huh, who gives a f***. That was pretty much my reaction to hearing that the new billion dollar stadium in New Jersey won the sweepstakes to host the 2014 Super Bowl beating out Tampa Bay. I mean, it’s probably exciting for that city and all, but why is this a top story? As a fan, I could care less if the Super Bowl is held in a good market or a warm place. Is it really going to make it more or less watchable? Sure, I’d like to see a snow game, but the only important thing about the Super Bowl for 99.9% of fans (I think), is that the game is close and competitive (or winning their bets). There’s only going to be two teams in there regardless, so most fans will have seen their team exit either before or during the playoffs.One other reason I think that this has been such a big deal in the media is because all of them have to go to the Super Bowl to cover it. Cry me a river media members, I’d go to the Super Bowl in a second wherever it is if I had the opportunity!

    I think this was a no-brainer for the NFL.

    Will the weather potentially be an issue? Yes. But You can’t go wrong with choosing New York as a venue for anything.

      Yeah, it’s not a bad idea. Not sure why some people think it’s terrible. Either way it’s fair for both teams, unless one of them is the Jets or Giants!

    Roger The Dodger Goodell obviously cares . But I look at this way what’s in the best interests of the fans and the game ?

    The economic impact that the staging of a Superbowl brings is unimaginable !

    You don’t think that the city of LA wouldn’t mind staging it given the budgetary crisis there at present ? Anywhere between $1-$1.6 billion isn’t to be sneezed at over that two week period leading up to the game itself . Think about it .

    The city of Tampa is actually a town of big ideas but little creativity ! They’ve screwed over the residents and are cutting back on services that the city will soon become no better than a city such as Abuja in Nigeria.

    As for the Superbowl being held in NYC possible during inclement weather when it’s blistering cold. Are you suggesting that’d be fun to watch ?.

    Premise the game is played in New York in blustery and wintery condition and the game ends up being a real stinker ! What then ? Who’ll be blamed ? The teams who participated or the NFL hierarchy ?

      Hahaha, I’m actually rooting for it to be a stinker of a game now! I wonder if they are going to have media day indoors!?!

        What’ll be their idea of a media day indoors ? Strippers , hookers and lines of coke for those of a discerning taste ?

        This was a bad idea right from the start. As it is Redskins’ owner Daniel Snyder has said he wants the Superbowl to be staged at Fedex Field , Landover , Md within the next five or six years. If not he’ll take his case to the US Supreme Court . Billionaire and millionaires just love money and they love to use the courts even more to get their own way . LOL,LOL,LOL !!!

    Of course someone will care teams who thought that they weren’t in with a chance because of how the NFL went about things. Now they jointly the Giants and Jets get the chance to host the Superbowl ? What does that say ’bout the chances of the Browns hosting it or even the Chiefs ? It’s not what you know but how much you’re prepared to pay the ‘Piper’ !

    Simply another reason why the NCAA can’t be trusted to clean house and keep its s_it in order !

    Ticket scandal rocks Kansas

    Lawrence , Kan. _ A high-ranking member of the University of Kansas athletic department and the father of a prominent Jayhawks’ athlete allegedly made more than $800,000 in a ticket scalping operation that was orchestrated by college basketball power brokers David and Dana Pump, Yahoo! Sports has learned.

    The scope, breadth and duration of the scalping business – which included Big 12 and NCAA tournament tickets – extended beyond Kansas to other schools, a source told federal authorities.

    David Freeman, a Lawrence real estate developer who said he participated in the scheme, told Yahoo! Sports that he, former Kansas director of ticket operations Rodney Jones and high-profile alum Roger Morningstar – the father of Jayhawks guard Brady Morningstar – were following the instructions of the Pump brothers when the trio made hundreds of thousands of dollars scalping tickets during the 2002 and 2003 NCAA tournaments.

    said to be doing this then what other schools haven’t
    been involved in doing the same thing ?
