    Was this just another brainchild from Roger and the NFL as a half ass experiment in the "big market" of New York??? Why??? You play your asses off, sometimes almost three whole games freezing your asses off just to get to the "Big Show" and get rewarded with a winter home game of sorts for some NFL teams if they make it...???

    Stupid...keep the Superbowl "south" where it's warm and pleasant for the historical nature of the game. California, Florida, Dome Stadiums or anywhere else where the weather will be 70 degree's plus....

    Agreed. This whole tough guy playing through the elements crap is past it's time. No one wants to see that garbage and I doubt the players wanna play in it.

    Some of the greatest historical games were played in the elements.. football was born in the cold and snow. You're always gonna have to play through bad weather, be it heavy rain, snow, 20-below temperatures, whatever. It's an association game because everyone knows the weather sucks.

    The losing side will always find a way to blame something.. refs, weather, players, whatever. Granted, I wouldn't want Tennessee to end up playing in a snow-bowl, but if it happens it happens. The team that buckles down and decides to play through it will usually win. You could get some epic championship games in the elements.

    Playing playoff games in Foxborough and New Jersey is fine but not the Super Bowl. Makes sense.

    It'll never happen because of the spectacle the Super Bowl has become, but the higher seeded team should host the game.

    why don't we go all mlb on dat azz and have the pro bowl decide where the super bowl would be played....

    they could even do that to decide what conference would host it then after playoffs are locked raffle the teams and pick one and set the superbowl there

    This game is about skill and a certain amount of luck. Weather, good or bad, is the luck of the draw. I think it should be moved around like it used to be. Just because the bowl is held up north half the time does not mean that it will be a blizzard. If we get one out of three or four bowls in a blizzard, so be it. I think it would be a nice change up. Teams should not know what to expect. Let what's gonna happen, happen.
