super bowl is not a reward for sponsors. it is a reward for the players. elements should be involved. it is how the game is meant to be played. the "ice bowl"?!?!?!
sponsors and SPORTSWRITERS can suffer just as much as the players. y


The super bowl doesn't determine the *best* team in the league. It determines the champions of the NFL.

The majority of the time, those are probably the same team. But its certainly not always the case.


Just my opinion, but I would rather they start at one stadium and run through them all! Doesn't matter what the city is like, the fans will come!


I like that cold cities with outdoor stadiums get to host and be a part of the rotation. the warm weather and dome venues too are nice but it can be too much of a good thing.


The Ice Bowl and playoffs in January are not the way the game "was meant to be played". The game was "meant to be played" in the fall, Labor Day thru the first week in December. Only after television money began controlling the reins did the comfort of the fan in the stands not be a consideration. Cold weather keeps people indoors watching tv. The higher the ratings, the more ad revenue. Thank goodness for progress in outdoor clothing.
I'd like to see a split season, Sep-Nov and March-April.


Atlanta overmatched by the SB, puhlease. Went to both in ATL, first one was great - lots of activity downtown, weather was great, lots of celebs, etc. Second one was a dud, although the game was great, the weather was just poor. In both cases the city ran very smooth and everyone, but TS, has a blast. (The city has only hosted numerous CBB final fours, World Series, All Star games, megaconcerts, and the Summer Olympics)

I like that the NFL moves it around - but I agree that NO and SD, and perhaps Tampa, should be part of a regular rotation of every five years or so. Who knows, maybe Charlotte will get the game one day - once it is not overmatched by Memorial Day and the ACC Football Championship game.


The NFL championship should be decided in adversity, preferably in sleet, snow, and tornadic winds. A climate controlled indoor stadium doesn't do justice to this violent macho-fueled battle.


Glendale is on the west side of Phoenix; Scottsdale borders its east side. There's quite a distance between them.

For years, the football Cardinals played at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, on ASU's campus just minutes from the Scottsdale border. It was a great spot to tailgate - amid the proximity to Mill Ave shops and restaurants in downtown Tempe.

The area around Cardinals' new stadium, in Glendale, doesn't have a similar aura to it... but (it seems) they're working on it.


There's a lot a fans that hold on to the "days of old"instead of "todays game" where offenses don't "ground and pound" or defenses don't head hunt.Today the game is a vertical passing game and player safety.We saw this apparent in the Philly -Detroit game.Take away the vertical threat of Calvin Johnson and that's a different team.If your not able to do what your team does best that's and advantage to the more conventional teams that don't live and practice in those conditions.The Superbowl this season may be the "12th man" for such a team.


It would be interesting to hear what the players and coaches think - if you could get an honest opinion out of them without them getting fined by the league.... Work on that for us, TS!

Have the Super Bowl in Hawaii a weekend apart from the Pro Bowl and have a NFlL festival for the weekdays between the 2 games
