Oh no! The Super Bowl might have bad weather (In February, in New York, whoda thunk it?)
Me | 1/23/14 | GeorgiaDawg32

Posted on 01/23/2014 1:59:11 PM PST by GeorgiaDawg32

The NFL is considering moving the game to Monday or Tuesday in case of bad weather.

Well slather me in butter and call me a biscuit. Didn't they KNOW the possibility of bad winter weather would increase during WINTER?

Personally, they need to play the game in whatever Mother Nature throws at it. They wanted this up there, they got it. Now deal with it.

Your opinion may differ.

Football is played outside, in real weather. The worse the weather the better the game!

Well, they were willing to take a chance on the weather. It’s a roll of the dice.

If they get a warm spell, it could easily be 45 degrees, which would be nice football weather. On the other hand, it could be in the teens or colder that time of year.

Maybe this will be the first and last time they have an outdoor stadium in the north host a Super Bowl. We’ll see.

As a child of the 50’s, I remember watching pro football on tv (before all the drainage systems and so on were put in) and sometimes, literally, you couldn’t tell who was on what team except for the helmet.

It was a lot of fun watching a running back flying down the field and get tackled on the 40, then watching him slide and come to a stop on the 5.

No, I get the point. They’re concerned that the rich d-bags who can get Super Bowl tickets will be uncomfortable if they can’t wear short sleeves to the game.

I just don’t care.

your class envy is ugly ugly ugly……but that also misses the point. Your posts are short, pithy, and don’t connect with each other.

So which is it, your faux macho idea that we “play football’ in any kind of weather, or your absurd jealousy over those who can afford tickets in short sleevs?

Or are you just ticked off at life?

I still think the chances of them moving the game to a different day are slim to none. There is just too much money at stake - advertisers pay millions of dollars for a 30-second spot during the Super Bowl, solely because of the astronomical ratings the game receives. Entire ad campaigns are built around Super Bowl ads. Move the game to a Monday or Tuesday (or a Friday or Saturday), and those astronomical ratings plummet. The advertisers (and, by extension, the network) would revolt (and sue).

Agreed. Football games should not be delayed, cancelled, or moved to another location due to inclement weather.

HINT: I don’t see any. I see some buyers remorse for a stupid decision, and some worry about it……and I dont think most fans want a Super Bowl dominated by weather, but I see now whining…...

Plus, think of the loss of productivity impact, if no one goes to work or school to stay home and watch it on weekday. The DOJ would have to launch an investigation of some type.

I disagree, but only for weather that rises to the state-of-emergency type of event.

A hurricane, or a real blizzard? Safety says stay home or move the game.

A snowstorm or rain? Even a “big” snowstorm? Play the game as planned.

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away, there used to be a wonderful game called football, played in whatever weather happened by MEN who “gave ‘em the business” at the bottom of the pile. My ultimate Super Bowl would be Da Bears playing the Brownies, and flipping a coin to see whether it’d be at Soldier Field or the OLD Cleveland Muni.

Having changed tires on a semi when the wind chill was minus 55 degrees, Fahrenheit, I respectfully disagree with you.

I went to MANY, MANY games (baseball and football) at the old Muni. I miss that place.

I remember sitting in the upper deck behind home plate with the dreaded Yankees in town for a double-header (remember those?). Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. It got rained out. Talk about a bummer.

They’ve been “considering” a move since they made this decision. It’s always been contingent on the weather being so bad there’s a city shutdown, like what happened to the game in Philly last year. Regular bad weather will be played through, just like any other football game.

And he had 4 NFC titles to show for it. (Technically one of those was an NFL Championship, the year they lost to KC in the SB).

I ditto your comments, but I do think it was a bad decision to put on the premier event of a sport where most attendees biggest memories are not of the game but the elements and misery of attending.

Either schedule the Stupid Bowl for a domed stadium, or don’t bitch about the weather if it turns out to be bad.

How’s that for common sense?
