    Should the Superbowl be played on Saturday?

    ESPN/Mike and Mike have a poll online and they say its at 66% in favor of a saturday game.

    I think its a great idea when theres a 2 week layoff. The media requirements and such that occur with just a week between the CCG and SB make those years too difficult to pull off.

    whats everyones thoughts?

    I'd prefer that or an early start on Sunday. With all the crap that goes along with the game...it's almost a half or whole day affair.

    Re: Should the Superbowl be played on Saturday?

    Hmm, I guess I agree that I kind of like this idea now that they have gone to the two week layoff. The game is really really long now with all the stuff that goes along with it, and a lot of people like to have parties along with the game. If it was done on a Saturday evening, you could really go all out with things and not have to worry about working the next day.

    Re: Should the Superbowl be played on Saturday?

    I would love that. I end up traveling that weekend almost every year and have some tough decisions to make. What ever I decide it almost always cuts into my ability to fully enjoy the game.

    Saturday would open up some options.

    Re: Should the Superbowl be played on Saturday?

    I agree in that the Super Bowl should be moved to Saturday. This will allow people that want to enjoy a few drinks during the game the opportunity. It just gets over way to late on Sunday night. Especially if you have to work at 5am.

    It is the super bowl, it is supposed to be a whole day affair. It is the end of sports until August.

    Re: Should the Superbowl be played on Saturday?

    I still like the Sunday deal - although they could start quite a bit earlier. And there's a TON of college basketball on Saturday during that time of the year. Sure, some on Sunday as well, but not nearly as many games.

    Doesn't really matter in the end. Not like I won't watch if it's Saturday. Just seems like breaking a tradition.

    Edit: Somebody explain to me why the 2 week layoff is a factor? Just so it's one day earlier?

    I think just regarding teams' preparation time. Nothing to do with the fan and getting to watch it sooner...but that way a team that plays sunday night in a CCG doesn't have to do as quick of a turn around in one week.....

    No, the Monday after should just be a National Holiday. Super Bowl Monday, the recovery.

    It's one of the reasons I am so ticked that they've moved a couple of the BCS games to during the week. There just isn't time to enjoy the games with friends and still get to work in the morning.

    Re: Should the Superbowl be played on Saturday?

    I say yes if there's 2 weeks in between. Might be a little hard this late in the season to do it if there was only a week....but then again they do it all year on one week and they are thinking about expanding the regular season to 18 games instead of 16 so the players could complain about the lack of time for their bodies to heal up some. Would make it easier for Super Bowl parties for fans since they'd have Sunday to recover before heading back to work.
