    You know that contingency plan is in place for every Super Bowl, right?

    Sure, but there has never been a need for it when the game is played in a Dome or nice weather out in FL or CA. The NFL KNEW NY/NJ has bad weather in Feb. Yet they scheduled the game anyway. Its not enough to make them play on a neutral site miles and miles away from both these teams home fans, spend THOUSANDS of dollars, take time off work, but now they are making everyone change their plans to be able to watch the game.

    All of this could have been prevented if they simply used their brains - "That lumb 3 ft above your a$$"

    If it is windy, snowy and cold and the Broncos lose get ready for the excuse books to come out for Peyton Manning.

    But how often has Peyton played in it. You watch, the excuses will be flying. The NFL already once changed the rules to make things easier for Peyton. If bad weather "costs Peyton a Super Bowl" then the game will never again be played in a cold climate outdoor stadium.

    I've never been a fan of bad weather games. To me football is game of skill and athleticism. I feel that bad weather takes away from it. To me it's just not fun to watch a receiver plant his foot to enter his break and then bust his ass because he slipped. It takes away from the game to me. I like a nice dry, temperate climate where both teams are at their absolute best and the weather doesn't exist as a gimmick to introduce randomness.

    The players aren't worried about the weather, they've been playing the game outside since they first began playing.
    It's the corporate wussies that don't want to sit outside in the cold at 10,000 + dollars a seat...

    See, to me that's BASKETBALL.
    Football is a game of brawn, might and will, battleing against another team and the elements, like war.

    Exactly. Though weather is part of the game, I want to see the outcome determined by the players and not the conditions.
