I think the criticism is kinda silly myself.

They could hold Super Bowl in Alaska and you'll still see shirtless fans in the bleachers (alcohol in hand, of course).

A multimillion dollar athlete - who incidentally plays in Baltimore - complaining about playing in the cold comes off sounding like a spoiled, whiny little baby.

It's football.

I don't mind a cold weather superbowl so that some of these locales that are ignored can get their share of the spotlight. I'm gonna try and see if I can get tickets for this next one because MetLife stadium is like barely 25 minutes away from me. Obviously there are other metropoleis whose local fans need to buy a plane ticket and a hotel room to be able to witness a superbowl in person, and it does get repetitive seeing the game being played in the same 3 stadiums over and over again. Superdome, Raymond James Stadium, Sun Life Stadium, repeat.

but having more cold weather superbowls for the sake of having them play in cold weather is as retarded as Flacco says it is

I don't think they're doing it specifically so they can play in cold weather.

I just figure other cities want in on all the action that comes from having a Super Bowl.

Can't really blame 'em.

ESPN is just quoting an article from the upcoming SI issue, that has quotes from Ray Lewis in it. He can't deny it to one place and say something else to another and expect to keep integrity. I mean he told SI for the article that he did indeed order from SWATS, at least according to the SI article.


Yes, "according to the S.I." article. Ray stated that this was brough up two years ago. Why are they rehashing old stuff?

and then when an clunker SB is played in conditions resembling the 81 AFCCG, then everyone will be over that.

I'm all for this, one of the reasons many fans love the game is because the NFL doesn't care if the weather is crap they play anyway. Super Bowl should be the same way.

Here is an idea, how about the super bowl is played at the home stadium of the team with the best record. So cities can put more pressure on organizations to win.

Superbowls take years of planning.

Peter King amusingly pointed out that the temperature in Baltimore today was actually seven degrees warmer than that in New Orleans :lol:
