    I appreciate the change.

    I don't want it played up north every year, but every 5 years or so would be okay with me.

    Well they have played in Minnesota and Detroit before. Dome teams up north. Do not need to play everywhere. New York just think they are special and above everyone else.

    The Super Bowl generates a huge amount of money for a community, and also requires a big time infrastructure.

    Hard to host a Super Bowl with limited hotels and restaurants, New York City/ Jersey offers that at its finest.

    I totally understand why the NFL (based in NYC) would want to host the Super Bowl in the NY/NJ area. And since I'm most likely not going to be sitting in the cold (unless the Titans are playing) I personally dont mind them having a cold weather Super Bowl there.

    But if I was going, and I had the choice, I'd prefer a warm climate hold the game. But since I live very close to NYC and if the Titans make it, Im so selling a kidney to make it there.

    They're attaching a giant heater to the Goodyear hotair balloon. Should be a nice 65 degree day near or in the stadium.

    Like that even matters. China will inevitably end us all.

    Would also be a giant waste of time since heat rises :p

    Better to install heating pipes under the field ;)

    There have been Superbowls played in cold conditions before.

    Super Bowl VIII in 1974 was played at Rice Stadium in Houston and temperature was 50 degrees at kickoff. Miami defeated Minnesota 24-7

    Super Bowl IX in 1975 was played at Tulane Stadium with temperatures around 46 degrees at kickoff. Pittsburgh defeated Minnesota 16-6

    Super Bowl XIX in 1985 in Stanford,California at Stanford Stadium was 53 degrees at kickoff with San Francisco defeating Miami 38-16
