Super Bowl XLVIII: Date subject to change

Recommended Posts

My, oh my. Our society is getting softer...in a bad way. Too bad that softness isn't extended towards people in ways that will actually help people to improve their lives and society as a whole...

The Super Bowl shouldn't be played in the elements. There could be 16 feet of snow and 30 below zero and the NFC championship game should go on. Not the super bowl. The elements should be superb, and the best team should win.

 

Why? The chance of driving snow is very little. Heck, even the rain bowl when the Colts beat the Bears was a fun one. The only real issue is cold weather and that won't hamper the MEN who are on the field. Just the pussbags who won't even be in the stands who cry from their warm weather climates. Don't make the Super Bowl into some mystical, glitter-filled, entertainment fest. That's the advertisers job. The Super Bowl is a game. Period. Team versus team. The temperature is not a factor.

I've played in frigid cold, blazing heat, driving rain, blowing snow, pretty much anything. It's what football players do. And in all of those conditions, the stands were full. Only time I ever saw people move was a thunderstorm in a stadium with all metal bleachers.

Pro fans in Chicago, Buffalo, Philadelphia, Green Bay and others all show up in the worst conditions. Heck, plenty of times you get shirtless guys (usually pretty well lubricated). Throw in that one of the best games ever played was nicknamed The Ice Bowl.

I have zero issues with the game being played in a old climate venue. If fans don't like it, let 'em give up their tickets to fans who do.

It's not a matter of playing in the elements, as football should be, or beating your chest to show how tuff you are. The important fact here is weather controls everything and we control none of it, mainly travel. With the Super Bowls, scheduling matters soooo much for ticket sales and prime air time, you could be faced with playing a Super Bowl with 1/4 of the attendance because of plane delays or be forced to move it to accommodate all those who bought tickets. Either of the two would be horrible for the game. As CC eluded to, is the NFL so arrogant to think it has tens of millions of Americans on standby for a window of 3 full days?!
