The NFL announced today that Super Bowl XLVIII in 2014 has been awarded to New Meadowlands Stadium, home of the New York Giants and Jets. For the first time in league history, the Super Bowl will be played outside in cold weather and unknown conditions. Previous NFL Championship Games, including the Baltimore Colts 1958 victory over the New York Giants, was played outdoors in frigid temperatures.
While many people, including me, think this is not a good move by the league, it does however, open the possibility of the Super Bowl being held in Baltimore at some point in the future. At the same time, I couldn't care less where it is being held, as long as my Baltimore Ravens are playing in it.
What do you think?
Do you think awarding the 2014 Super Bowl to New York, or playing it anywhere in unpredictable cold conditions, is a good decision?
Yes, why not let the teams play in typical conditions? (197 votes)
