    No tailgating at the Super Bowl

    The NFL really just wants to ruin the entire fan experience. Of course with the expensive tickets and the fact that fans rarely can get a ticket I guess it doesn't matter. Having the Super Bowl in New Jersey doesn't really make a whole lot of sense anyway.

    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Re: No tailgating at the Super Bowl

    I don't know why people would want to tailgate in New Jersey, in the dead of winter anyway.

    doesn't surprise me. The whole NFL experience has been going downhill for awhile now.

    Re: No tailgating at the Super Bowl

    Also, the fact that you can't walk to the game seems crazy.

    Re: No tailgating at the Super Bowl

    Superbowl was kinda ruined by having it played in New Jersey in the beginning of February.

    Look at the geography of the stadium. The Meadowlands are not really a part of the city. They're kind of on their own. You wouldn't really want to walk there in February anyway.

    Re: No tailgating at the Super Bowl

    All these points make sense, and I overlooked them. But what is football without tailgating?

    Beginning to look a bit corporate at the Super bowl games. What do tickets even cost now? 1 million dollars?

    Re: No tailgating at the Super Bowl

    I don't think people really tailgate for the Super Bowl anyways, and especially not in New Jersey in the Winter.

    Beginning to? Brother, it's been that way for a while now.

    For the average fan, the SuperBowl experience is in a home or at a bar, watching on TV. Seeing the game live has been outrageously expensive and cost prohibitive to most average folks for years and years. This is nothing new.

    Re: No tailgating at the Super Bowl

    Might this be a sign of things to come with the college football playoff system?

    Do people tailgate at bowl games? I've never been to one.

    Re: No tailgating at the Super Bowl

    Probably because they can't make money off of your tailgate. So why let you tailgate when they can charge you to come to a pre-game event.
