    Should the Super Bowl be played in cold weather cities or all NFL stadiums?

    Should the Super Bowl be played in cold weather cities or all NFL stadiums?

    Why should only warm weather & dome teams be able to host the Super Bowl? If you argue that the game should be played on controlled weather places, then maybe schedule it only in domes or how about Hawaii like the Pro Bowl is? As far as pointing out that it should be played away from cold weather areas, keep in mind that during the regular season, many games are played in cold, snowy, windy and rainy conditions. Why not the Super Bowl? Why should only a selected number of NFL teams host it? Its not fair to the cities that don't get to host it. Why not host it in warm weathered college stadiums then? That way no NFL city gets that advantage.
    Why not have the Super Bowl played in the 2 oldest NFL franchises; Green Bay & Chicago?
    Please don't bring up hotels, motels, accessabilty, etc.

    The people complaining will be the corporate sponsors that pay big bucks to bring all kinds of people to the game that will have no idea how to dress for the weather.

    This about all of the winter clothes that people are buying for the game - revenue generation.

    I like the idea of not playing in a dome or in warm weather all the time. The Super Bowl feels so stale sometimes.

    It would be a big political problem for the NFL for them to shut out their cold weather NFL cities. They have to please all 32 franchises and cities. It is also a bone they throw to the cities that build new stadia for their franchises. There is a positive economic impact to a city by hosting which helps to offset the stadium building costs just a little. More importantly is the big ad for the city the game and hype become. I know Minneapolis was milking their superbowl experience for at least 10 years after they hosted.

    So why is this Super Bowl being played in New York? Was it because of 9/11 or because of the new stadium?
    Its sad that New York gets to host it before Chicago or Green Bay, the two oldest NFL teams.

    I don't know man. It's the Super Bowl. I want to see the players decide it outside of crazy adverse elements. If the weather is as it's predicted, I'm fine with this year. But if it were snowing or bitter cold? Wouldn't like it one bit.

    But weather is a factor in many regular season games, and with only 16 regular season games, every game has a lot of meaning to it. The playoffs are the same as the regular season. Why the Super Bowl?
    The World Series is played in cold places sometimes. That's not played on a neutral site.

    Buccaneers/Dolphins Super Bowl in NYC....the game would suck, but laughing at the under-dressed fans would make it all worth while.

    Re: Should the Super Bowl be played in cold weather cities or all NFL stadiums?

    I have no problem with the super bowl being played in cold weather stadiums. Why should cold weather teams be penalized in the championship game all the time. This goes for college championship games also. How about Florida or Texas teams having to come north to play once in a while.

    Also this superbowl will probably be the first in a long time that actual fans might outnumber celebrities looking for a photo op.

    I feel the same way about the World Series. October games in NY? I thought it was the boys of summer. Extreme adverse weather conditions change the game way too much.

    If you can't get amped up to play in the SuperBowl then you are a prima dona. I think every team should have a chance to host it.

    The good thing is the weather would be good or bad for both teams. Not only that, but this would give ISU another selling point. If you want to play in the big game you need to be able to weather the elements.

    After they build the replacement for the Baggy Stadium, they will be back in line to milk. Think they can then get on the list?

    This is a common fallacy....there have been several studies done that prove that hosting the Super Bowl has little relative economic effect (over having a normal home game). The overall costs of taxpayers subsidizing the stadium do not outweigh the economic benefits stadiums bring in.

    I assume it's simply because it's New York
