...in Charlotte?

I know the field conditions predicate nearly everything nowadays...not to mention big markets...

but with Charlotte's growth + Newton's national status + the DNC, could they help prop this town up enough over the next few years for a bigger spot in the country's scope or does the current attitude in the league about the Super Bowl being "perfect" for the fans supersede all?

I think we have some places together in this city that it could happen pending if JR is smart with upgrades over the next few years in the stadium. We're kinda due for at least a modest upgrade at the scale of the league's smallest HD screens a few years back.

So, anyone think we'll ever...ever have a chance?

Another high thought: If the NFL & NBA paired up beyond their probowls/allstar games to do a one game annual switcheroo...could that market well? I think it could make bank.

Would love it but i don't think it will ever happen. Just not a sexy enough city. I know that poophole Jacksonville hosted one but from what i understand the league wasn't none to happy with the showing. I don't think they will look to places like Charlotte, Nashville or even St Louis.

EVER have a chance? Sure - why not. Anything is possible in the long run.

Will it be any time soon? No I honestly don't think it will. Charlotte is not a chic city with a national reputation NOR do we have a wealth of sports history to draw on. Despite the relative size of the city and the growth I still get people who think it's in South Carolina, that "Carolina" is a state and North / South are just regions, or that tell me there's no NFL franchise in Charlotte. Hell I've heard people from CLEVELAND (tiny and podunk?) look at a Charlotte skyline picture I keep in my living room and say "huh - I didn't know Charlotte was a real city".

Nope. Now if a new stadium is built 50 years from now (obvious exaggeration that needs to be pointed out because this is the Internet) ...then Goodell will CONSIDER handing out a SB.

lol Charlotte is way too small to handle something like the super bowl. Is there a city with a smaller population (not market) with a NFL team? I think the we are surely one of the smallest if not the smallest. The weather shouldn't matter.

You can do better than that.

How about: This is where a place called Midtown Squares existed with the most epic Burlington Coat factory and wolf camera!

or....

This used to be an awesome place where'd all of Charlotte would go as the South Park alternative. Damn South Park, with that old Charlies Restaurant attached in front and the movie theater out back. But I'm talking old school Eastland Mall...the place with the only ice skating rink (pre-Icehouse)...not that new craptastic Carolina de Nord

Don't forget the Checkers games off Independence

or maybe that indoor min-mall thing that used to be off Sharon Amity & Randolph...with the Spoons! Spoons was tha poo

St. Louis for sure. That place is a pure sh*t hole. I mean that in a good and bad way depending on where you're coming from reader of this text :)

This should now be a moot point what with New York getting a Super Bowl and all :rolleyes:
