This is the end of an article found on the RTS website. The whole thing was about the wisdom of having the SB in cold weather city. Nothing that was mentioned was new or important but I found this part to be rather funny.

Not that any or all of them wouldn't welcome the chance to try their luck in 2019.

''If they have it in Alaska, if that's where they want to play the Super Bowl, I want to get my team there. That's how I look at it,'' Buffalo coach Doug Marrone said.

''... either I'm there playing it, or I'm at home feeling pretty ...'' and here Marrone paused to glance at Bills spokesman Scott Berchtold. ''Can I say the word I want to say?'' he began.

''Lousy?'' suggested Berchtold.

''Lousy,'' Marrone repeated. ''OK.''

Having it in the elements this year should open
it up to being played in ALL cold cities, including
Green Bay. Yes, I know the hotel problems and
all, but the reason has always been the weather.
G.B. deserves to host it as well.
Who cares if the rich people would have to
travel from hotels to the game?
Have busses take them to and from Lambeau Field.

Heard them complaining on the radio about it already. One of them being, that it is unfair because teams that play outside in the cold would have an unfair advantage over teams that don't. Well dome teams have an advantage over other team when the SB is played in a dome.

This is exactly why they should play in both indoor, outdoor, warm and cold, because it is fair.

Would live to see the game in GB. The city and the surrounding areas would work together to cover any hotel room issues. Hell, half the city would probably be willing to rent out their homes for the two weeks. Doubt it will ever happen with the pussy celebs and big wigs. But screw them. Give the game back to the regular fan for once.

Did you notice all the snow in the parking lot of Met Life stadium in that one picture.

I'm trying to think of a suitable comment but all I can think of is they call that snow? Most places in Wisconsin probably wouldn't even break out the shovels for that. And if all those pictures were taken on the same day it looks like its about 40 degrees or more the way all the snow looks like its melting. Sure it looks like a lot of snow but its a big area. even an inch of snow would produce piles that big in a parking lot of that size.

Again I agree with packfanwithtwins.

Dome teams have the advantage in ALL theri home games. So what if the poor little guys will catch a cold in the snow? Are we supposed to CARE?
Isn't football SUPPOSED to be an outdoor sport?

I know, it's hardly anything really and yet they're making a big stink of it.

If they are THAT worried about bad weather affecting the game, they should have never agreed to have it in a city that far north without it being in a dome.

When I hear they do not want the game effected by weather, I have a hard time believing that as the cause. The cynic in me thinks its somehow aimed at money. Although, seriously, when has a Super Bowl NEVER sold out?

On the radio Harry Syndey said he doesn't want weather dictating the outcome of a game because if a outdoor team is vs a indoor team, the outdoor team has the advantage. What??? How is that different if the venue was indoors?

Besides, isn't the Super Bowl the decider of who the best team is? Don't both teams have to play in the same climate and conditions?


Another factor the NFL should consider when they worry about the bottom line dollars ... what games do we remember more than others? Ice Bowl, Mud Bowl, Snow Bowl, Monsoon Bowl, Wind Bowl .... those are all names we've slapped on memorable games.


Remember these games?

I don't care about the game at all. Play it in a monsoon or a blizzard or in 120 degree heat. The teams earned the right to be there and they are paid well for it and that is what their goal was before the season started. I don't think the players care.

As for the fans, I don't really care about them either. If you don't want to pay $2000.00 or more for a social event and risk having to sit in less than perfect conditions then don't. I've often wondered how many of the Super Bowl attendees are just there for the appearance and have never been to another football game or maybe even watched another football game in their life. For those that scrimp and save to be able to afford the cheapest ticket so they can attend a football game, like the players, I don't think they will care about the weather

Why I think it is stupid to have the game in a cold weather city really has nothing to do with the game but the hype leading up to it. Its probably already the most hyped sporting event on the planet so can you imagine the additional crap we are going to have to put up with in the weeks preceding the game. We will have Super Bowl weather watches on every sports site we visit. We will be seeing reporters shivering their asses off while wearing $1000.00 coats that wouldn't keep a polar bear warm in the Sahara all the while complaining about the bitter cold and it will be 50 degrees. I'm not talking about the regular sports reporters, most of them will know what to expect if they have ever done games in Green Bay or Buffalo. I'm talking about the fashion channel or the antique channel or the cross stitch channel that will have reporters there. And before you ask, no I don't watch the fashion channels or the antique channels or the cross stitch channels but we will see them anyway because someone will put the damned interviews on the internet and some ass wipe will post them on a site like this or email them to me because they think they are funny so no, we won't be able to avoid them.

Sorry, got a little off track there. Just think of all the news we see of big snow storms that happen every other time of the year. It will be 100 times worse if it happens during Super Bowl week and nothing will focus on the storm itself or the regular citizens it negatively affects but rather on how some spoiled rich bitch got salt residue on her $2000.00 Gucci boots and it might leave a permanent stain. Or how multi million dollar corporations are losing so much money because the huge snowfall is not allowing them to gouge a many people as they normally would.

That's why I don't like the idea of a cold weather Super Bowl. As far as the game goes it will be a football game and depending on who makes it I may not even watch it.

On your last point, I don't know that football is SUPPOSED to be an outdoor sport. It started out that way because the money or the technology or whatever wasn't there to build the indoor stadiums in the early years of the league.

To say that football is supposed to be an outdoor sport is like saying telephones are supposed to have numbered dials on them and the signals are supposed to travel along wires suspended on huge poles buried in the ground at regular intervals along the highway.

What we now know as Super Bowl I and II, I do not believe those were Super Bowl's at the time so are you referring to Super Bowl III?

So the Packers only have 2 Lombardi trophys then right?

They actually rewrote the history books to name them Super Bowl I and II and also the trophy was named in hindsight. However, the point which is very clear is since it's been marketed as Super Bowl and has grown so popular, it would guarantee a sell out even if it was in Chicago. Ok, they have a tiny capacity stadium, but you get the idea.

Realistically, the NFL knows it would be a sellout. They don't care about that. They would rather pull in $50 million with a half filled stadium than $45 million with a stadium filled to capacity.

True that they weren't called Super Bowls just yet, but they've been retroactively named as such (as well as the trophy) so it's close enough for me to say the first didn't sell out. :-"

Alaska ! Yeah , that's the ticket .

They could spend many years building the great log cabin stadium . The roof itself would be a marvel of geometry ! It might even remind one of the Flintstones but for the mega - screen TVs . The rough cut benches in the stands would still have their bark. The 80,000 seat facility would have running water, sanitation , and electricity.

It would be built in Anchorage, yet the place would not have a team. Cruise ships would be brought in for hotels and restaurants . The Airport would also need a remodeling and expansion . After the big game, the stadium could host Lumberjack competitions and Monster truck rally's .
