All Super Bowls indoors?

    It's about the week before the game as much as the game itself.

    Should never be held north of Atlanta again.

    Unless it is in San Fran.

    Believe me, it rarely rains in Miami in February (driest month in Florida) and its even more rare that it rains like that.

    It happens, it doesn't happen often and indoor Super Bowls suck.

    Roger Goodell doesn't care about the rain.

    From an AP folo today:

    Having only one of 41 Super Bowls affected by rain isn't enough to make them go indoors all the time.

    Frankly, all Super Bowls should be played outdoors, on natural grass and in warm locales. First of all, places like KC, Green Bay, Buffalo, etc. don't have the necessary infrastructure and hotel space to host a Super Bowl.

    I hate indoor Super Bowls, basically because of artificial turf. The grass stains that accumulate throughout the course of the game add to the fourth quarter drama for me. Maybe its strange, but that's just how I associate it.

    I'm sure Huizenga spent a chunk of today trying to figure a way to put a retractable roof on that stadium.

    I like either.

    Love the shiny helmets and speed of indoors.

    The Super Bowl is going to be packed to the rafters by people paying thousands of dollars per ticket, and the hotels are going to be packed all week, whether they play it in Buffalo, Green Bay or Anchorage.

    Super Bowl 50 should be at Lambeau Field.

    Well, despite the constant snow we've had in Denver the past six weeks (which has been abnormal), it was 45 and sunny yesterday and into the high 50s today. And the city has the stadium, the infrastructure and the hotel rooms to pull it off. Is there a chance it could snow? Yes. But there's a better chance it will be sunny and dry. And if it snows, so what?

    If you host all the week-of-game festivities in Milwaukee, it could.

    Fans couldn't care.
    Let them do all their bar-hopping in Milwaukee and bus/train them up to Green Bay for the game. Big deal? I don't think so.

    Of course, a lot of those would prefer a winter getaway. I wouldn't shell out that much money for a ticket knowing it was going to be in Buffalo, Green Bay or Anchorage.

    I would for San Diego, San Francisco, Phoenix or Miami, though.

    Thereby eliminating domed stadiums in Detroit, Indy, St. Louis, a planned retractable one in Minneapolis and you're an idiot for eliminating all but nine cities.
