With the Super Bowl XLVIII just days away, youd never know it from the New Jersey side of this two-part equation. Some lawmakers say the NFL hasnt endorsed any of its events, leaving New Jersey out of the spotlight and in the cold, CBS 2s Emily Smith reported Monday. While the big game is being held at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., some Jersey leaders said they are worried that the league hasnt gotten the memo that this is not New York Citys Super Bowl. Its just not a feeling of
its almost like not wanting to be here, Secaucus Mayor Michael Gonnelli said of the NFL.

Waaaa waas waas.... call me a wambulance. What a bunch of little ( you fill in the blank).
It is NOT the job of the NFL to make the host city feel comfy.
No, I can see the irritation. It IS NJ. What would NYC do without NJ next door to commandeer?
NJ up there has become a major urban area, so it’s not just a swamp. As for the rest of NJ, it’s quite nice. Worst thing is the silly jug-handle turns.
They certainly aren’t losing on the taxes....word is players will lose substantial sums to the liberals in Jerwesey!!!
Try the cannolis - theyre in the case by the cashier - "leave the gun, take the cannolis"
If the game was played in any other place with similar weather
conditions the NYC based MSM would be blasting the NFL for
booking such a venue. Frost-bite stories would fill the week.
Great minds think alike. Just use a “traffic study” to block all access to the stadium, then suggest to the NFL that a “small payment” might get the study finished off in 5 minutes. . .
It is. I am especially fond of Camden, because no matter where you are from (even Detroit or Cleveland), it allows you to go home feeling good about where you came from.
Just read that ticket premiums over face value are very low.
Apparently the locals aren’t too psyched and the fans aren’t traveling east in huge numbers.
Why should they be any different from the rest of us?
Unfortunately it looks like the weather will be merely chilly rather than Green Bayish like I was hoping for. Predicted high is 41 and low is 26. After my current week that's run around in shorts and barefooted weather.
But I think you get my point......
Doesn’t matter... I believe Met Life stadium is an open arena!!!
Pray for a REAL Nor’easter— -say about 8 ft. of snow followed by a deep super-bowl freeze.
In 1980, Pennsylvania adopted the ad slogan, “Youve Got a Friend in Pennsylvania” to boost tourism. Not to be outdone NJ came up with the slogan, “Youve Got a Friend in Pennsylvania - Go there.”
With Queen Latifah and their stupid half-time shows, I am surprised anyone watches anymore
And Philadelphia’s slogan is “Welcome to Philadelphia - And oh by the way, you suck.”
Quick, legislators, Governor! There is still time to pass and enact a special tax to right that wrong, one that applies to visiting teams not playing a New Jersey team!
You have to leave a gun to get cannolis??? No thanks - I’d rather just pay cash for the cannolis.
“I could imagine a game this week in Minnesota or Indianapolis this week. Brrrrrrr!”
75,000 fans trapped in the Georgia Dome by two inches of snow making the Superdome during Katrina look like a church social.
