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.

They know what a diamond is, look on their fingers.  Most of those a-holes in the luxury boxes are there to be seen and say they are great fans when the team is winning.  Ask them a question about the teams history and they change the subject.

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.

I love it for the human interest stories. And the cheerleaders.

Dolfan- here you go, about paragraph 6- Miami & San Diego need help before another Super Bowl. 
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/02/05/why-the-nfl-has-awarded-super-bowl-2014-to-cold-weather-east-rutherford.html

Yes, thank you.  Very strange IMO as there were luxury areas built for club level - very nice indoor seating, slightly upper scale food with many TVs for before the game or after (or halftime).  So I guess I don't know what they're looking for.  Can't imagine there'll be a new stadium for at least 10 more years but Miami was given very high grades by the media during & after 2010 Super Bowl.

Right? Miami's stadium was opened when? 88'? How bad could it be?

Obviously needs more public welfare, as pointed out in the news story. When it comes to welfare subsidies, there are no more deserving individuals than the struggling NFL owners.

Well, the NFL is a "socialist" enterprise...what would you expect? It's not "socialist" if it benefits the few instead of the many. One of those paradox's that are just frighteningly funny when you really think about it. I'm not complaining, it makes the winters much better.

Colleges concerned about an athlete's education?  Man, you are old.

How about when freshman had to play junior varsity no matter how good they were, so they could adjust to college life.

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.....

 
Your point is well taken...but the game is not about Football, even though us diehards want it to be...it's about making money...it's about the "event"...icebowl was my favorite Super Bowl...this nonsense each year is sickening

Major snow storm to blanket east coast, many flights cancelled, blizzard conditions, stay off the roads.
I wonder if Goodell & the NFL are concerned about next year's Super Bowl.
Has a Super Bowl ever been postponed?

Miami Dolphins have asked the local community (Dade County) for $199 million of the $400 million it plans to spend renovating the stadium for 2016 Super Bowl.  The proposal will be presented to voters in Dade County.  The Dolphins would spend the other $201 million.

I do not have a vote, as I do not live in Dade but I do not see how the area would not be able to easily recoup the expense.  The Super Bowl must surely bring 100,000 extra people in for a week, paying high hotel costs (with a 11% hotel tax), car rentals, flights, food at restaurants that are virtually never crowded, temporarily employ thousands...  Gotta be worth $199 million.

Let some relative of Dolphins' management open a casino and pay their own way from the proceeds. NFL owners need slots welfare too.

I do not necessarily disagree with your stance but the bottom line is it does bring money, employment & attention to the area & if given the choice between having it or not having it, the correct financial decision is $199 million will likely be a winning investment, IMO.

A study done for the city of Indy revealed an additional $400 million in receipts.  South Florida gains much more than a city like Indy.

Remember this stadium was NOT built by taxpayers - it was 100% funded by Joe Robbie.  Asking taxpayers to assist with an investment is not unreasonable, IMO.  On the other hand, Stephen Ross' net worth is over $4.4 billion!

But I still do not understand what the NFL wants.  The stadium is in fine shape.
