    XLVII Super Bowl (2014) Selection

    Anyone watching this on NFL Network?

    First ballot just failed, so they are going to the second ballot.

    New York/New Jersey, South Florida and Tampa are the finalist.

    No one wins on the second ballot. South Florida has been eliminated.

    It's down to New York/New Jersey and Tampa.

    No one wants to chime in? I do like talking to myself.

    No winner on the third vote. Down to the fourth and final vote. Simple majority gets it now.

    Nope. Was hoping they would. Maybe they release it at the end.

    They have to have a super majority on these votes?

    Interesting. I never knew how this worked.

    Neither did I. Used a sling box to watch it live from work. Was kind of interesting.

    Re: XLVII Super Bowl (2014) Selection

    It will be interesting to see what the Round 4 total was. I believe NFL Network said that two recent game sites got it by the minimum 17-15 margin.

    Re: XLVII Super Bowl (2014) Selection

    This is going to be a mess. None of the sponsors, fans, players or media want to be in New York in early February for this game. Feb 9 is one of the target dates. Normal high is 40, low 23. Record high 63, record low -15 (FEBRUARY CLIMATE SUMMARY - CENTRAL PARK NY). Most people heading to the Super Bowl treat this more as a vacation than football game.

    A big winter storm could cripple travel leading up to the game or hammer the game itself. Good luck with this NFL. I agree with mj4cy. I'm going to enjoy watching from the comfort of my living room for free while those poor saps pay 4 figures to be cold and/or wet.

    Re: XLVII Super Bowl (2014) Selection

    I'm now hoping for a gigantic, crippling Noreaster similar to what Washington, DC faced this year for the day of the Super Bowl in February 2014. Then Goodell can tell me whether having a Super Bowl in a city like New York is a good idea...
