Should New York host Superbowl XLVIII?

Seems like a pretty good shot that they're going to end up with it....not sure I like that idea. It gives outdoor cold weather teams a distinct advantage, and frankly, I dont think the elements should play a part in deciding who the best team in the league is in the seasons final game. In the playoffs its fine, because its what you play all season for, but why play it in a neutral site if that site potentially offers one team an advantage?


Personally I say no, but it looks like it'll happen.

Dislike. No fan wants to pay the atrocious price of a SB ticket to sit out in the snow for 4 hours.

Keep it in Florida and Cali or indoors.

Playing the Super Bowl in a dome offers an advantage to teams who play home games in a dome, although not as big of an advantage it still offers something.

Also I don't think players are going to ***** and moan that they have to play a game in the cold. The biggest effect i think it would have is the crazy celebrities who like to go to the Super Bowl simply because it's the Super Bowl wouldn't be as abundant.

Yes. It's football. If you're too ***** to play in the cold, go play soccer.

I know fans would be happy to go to the game either way, but doesn't a weekend in Miami sound a little better than a weekend in New York's winter?

Yea really, if you can't win in the cold you shouldn't win. It's no more unfair than making NY teams go play in the heat and humidity of Florida.

I'm on the fence. It will definitely be less friendly to passing teams. Imagine the Colts/Saints superbowl in 10degree weather and 10 inches of snow.

The elements should be reserved for the playoffs, those teams that get home field throughout earn it, the Superbowl is neutral. If the Giants played the Dolphins in NY in February who has the advantage? obviously the Giants do. IMO the Superbowl should be played only in domes, no team has an advantage in a dome. Its ideal football conditions all the time. I dont want rain or snow to decide who the "better" team is. I want the players to decide that.

Why does a New York Super Bowl automatically equate to a blizzard and horrific weather? There hasn't even been a Giant or Jet game where it's snowed a good amount if at all recently.

Why would playing in a neutral dome give a dome team an advantage? Crowd noise is equal, the playing surface doesnt come into the equation....

Noise level in a dome will usually be louder than an open stadium regardless of the home team. A team that plays it's games in a dome will be more accustom to the higher levels of noise than a team that doesn't.

I think there would be an advantage in the sense that the Dome Home Team would be more accustomed to it than a Outdoor Home Team. Not having played in the NFL, I couldn't tell you how much of an advantage that would be.

I wasn't specifically talking about New York, just an outdoor superbowl in general...

Keep it in warm, desirable places like they already do.

Then when SD and/or LA gets a new stadium built just host it there every year.

Also, domes are ***** ****, and all football games should be played outdoors

Umm, it rained in Florida when the Bears played the Colts. It was raining pretty hard IIRC. Elements come into play when its warm outside too. GB would be at a big disadvantage if they played outdoors in the heat instead of the temp's they are used to.

Isn't being the best meaning you can win regardless of the conditions? There will always be elements to overcome in a game outside of the weather. There's the indoor turf in a stadium, crowd noise, injuries, and a million other things. If you are the best, you can win in any element.

The crowd isn't equal?

If you REALLY are in favor of FULL neutrality then you would make it so each team has 50% of the stadium reserved for their fans.



If all games have to deal with elements, why should the SB be any different. No stadium will ever offer neutrality. One issue is the turf. It will always be slightly different wherever you play. The fans will never be completely split and some will always be louder than others. You can't achieve neutrality in a stadium. A team has to prove they are the best in any condition. Teams ALWAYS have advantages over others, its just part of the game.

Interesting argument though. I can definitely see why some are opposed to an outdoor snowbowl.

Also consider that NYC rarely gets blasted, so even if there were snow, it would likely be minimal, and grounds crew could deal with it before kickoff.

This. New York City's Winter is nothing like Central/Western/Northern New York. Snow never accumulates there.
