Outdoors in NJ at the Meadowlands in early February 2014.
I don't like the idea. Too cold, could be a blizzard.
I believe all Superbowls should be in a dome or Miami or San Diego.

I wonder how this will effect racing at the Meadowlands?  dunno
Will they not race the Friday & Saturday before the game for logistics reasons?  dunno

it is football not baseball so the weather won't effect the game but will surely be a mess on the congested highways especially if the weather is bad. Already have my 2 tickets if I want them. thumbs up

 Just read that--Miami & San Diego are eliminated from further Super Bowls until they upgrade or build new stadiums.

Biggest problem in NJ will be the roads not being able to accomodate the amount of traffic and all the hotels and restaurants jacking prices thru the roof. Already have people asking me to rent the driveway for parking.   laughing guy

No problem with te idea. Go back to pre-1967. The championshio games were played on the home fields of the team with the best record. Like Green Bay, NY, Chi,  etc.....Im sure many of you remember the Ice Bowl. A little extreme, but thats what football is all about. Bears played title games at home in freezing temperatures, as did the Giants. It was great


The Super Bowl isnt about football anymore. Its just an event, with all the added fanfare and party's. Not the way it was when YA Tittle and Bart Starr were around.

Hotels in New Jersey?  The kind of people spending thousands of dollars to see a football game will be staying in the city for the most part.  As for parking and the roads, it will be the same for any Giants game which fills the stadium for every game.

As for football in the snow and cold, that's the way its supposed to be.  Average lows for this time of year in NYC is low 30s.  Perfect football weather.

Hopefully there will be a good crowd at the track on the weekend.

 I couldnt disagree more with the idea of a "northern" set superbowl. I truly hope the weather is SO horrible they have to consider postponing it. Pandering to the NY teams ownership because they built a new stadium is luducrous. As a die hard Chicago fan, yes, cold weather games can be great and fun and all that, but the Superbowl should not be determined by ridiculous winter weather. Another reason is why does NYC get a game? Why not Chicago? Cleveland? They have very new great stadiums, why not them? its total  BSmeter. Just my opinion, of course... poor baby

Another problem might be the NFL has an issue with legalized sports gambling.

I live in NY and think it's ridiculous.  If I hear one more time football was made to be in the cold.   Than why has the first 47 Super Bowls been played in warm weather or indoors?
Mike Francesa here in NY babbling great idea.  The championships games are played in the cold.
Yeah, but Super Bowl is diffrent.  The crowd is asked to be in the stadium 3 hrs prior to the game.  The fans are not the Season ticket holders that go to championship games.
As a football fan, I hate everything about Super Bowl has become.  The game starts later and later.  The ridiculous half time shows....People it's a football game!!! Most of the commercials --stink --Who cares anyway...
Commissioner Goodell is the worst Commissioner of all.  All his ideas totally diagree with.  Games in London, 18 game schedule.....
There is no defense anymore in football.
I'm sorry, watching both teams go up and down field like Basketball, don't thrill me.....

They upgraded the stadium here just before the last Super Bowl in 2010.  Where did you read that and is it a credible source?

I agree, Mel.  It's so hypocritical to have domed stadiums in Detroit, Minnesota, Atlanta, Houston, Indianapolis & New Orleans, then play a Super Bowl in NY.  The only domed stadium should be in Phoenix because of the extreme heat.

Will Roger Goodell sit outside (not in a luxury box) for 3 hours before the game, like so many fans will have to, then nearly 4 hours for the game for thousands of dollars per ticket?

How happy will the mass media be to spend their week inside studios (same old, same old) instead of basking in the Florida sun or on Bourbon Street?

Finally, how about Peyton Manning - he can't win when it's cold, ladies.  Or what if that warm weather team, Minnesota gets a real QB & has to play outdoors?

FYI - another day in paradise here - sunny & 78!  Wasn't it snowing at Yonkers last Saturday.

The Outdoor event will hopefully keep the rich frauds away who are not real fans. seems that is what baseball has become with the ridiculous box seats and seeing half of them empty and the others occupied by Wall street frauds, Bankers and people who have no idea what a diamond is.

The issue the NFL has with sports gambling is making believe that gambling isn't the reason that its the most popular sport in America.
