New Orleans switching from hosting Super Bowl 58 to 59

Recommended Posts

They should move this year's to Vegas, then push the rest back a year to fill in the gaps.

Vegas lost the draft.

vegas just lost the Pro Bowl.  

It's Super Bowl LV, for crying out loud.  How does the NFL put two major events there this year and miss the obvious one?  Because, unless you want to put one in a cold weather city in 46 years (C), the NFL will never have another shot at this

That's awesome !
It won't happen because they start planning logistics 2 years out and no way they could make the switch now
But that's still a great comment

I love Ohio and the Browns. No way should they put the SB in Cleveland. 
It makes no sense to put it in Cleveland, the city doesn't have the layout for the atmosphere and you don't want to be walking around downtown in February going between events. If a lake effect snow hits, good luck

When the SB was in Detroit lots of the complaints were they city didn't have that feel of a party. It was cold and not many people want to travel to the North in the winter (I don't blame them). SB week is about money and building excitement as much as it is about the game. That's why I always thought Miami and NO were perfect spots, with LA and Vegas add to it. I think NYC / NJ could host it because there is so much to do and that made it ok. I don't even think Chicago would pull it off that great. Ever walked down Michigan ave in the middle of winter? When rock salt is getting blown in your face from the wind, you realize winter sucks.

I feel the New Jersey Super Bowl should not be a one-time thing. It was so successful that more Super Bowls should be played up north outdoors.

Northern cities should not be forced to build a covered stadium to host either the Super Bowl or the CFP title game. And most of the outdoor stadiums up north are relatively new, which means they won't replaced anytime soon.

So it's time to stop discriminating against cities like Cleveland, Green Bay, and Foxboro in selecting sites for the Super Bowl and CFP title game.

Besides, the CFP not awarding title games to those stadiums just fuels the critics attacking Southern powers for not wanting to play up north late in the season. It's something that needs catching up to them.

Cold-weather football is real football. Southern CFB powers don't play real football because they haven't played a cold weather game in recent memory.

As it is, First Energy Stadium is the oldest NFL venue that has never host a playoff game. Heinz Field, the home of rival Steelers, which opened 2 years after First Energy Stadium did, has hosted 12 - and most of those came because the Browns snoozed and lost on Ben Rothlisberger in 2004. If the Browns had picked Big Ben, they might have had a home playoff game at First Energy Stadium sooner.

This is why I want Cleveland to host both a Super Bowl and CFP title game. It's about time the refusal of Southern CFP powers to play late season games up north catch up to them. And it's about time outdoor stadiums up north stop being discriminated against in selecting CFP title game and Super Bowl hosts. The New Jersey Super Bowl doesn't have to be a one-time thing. It hasn't been since 1969 that an NFL title game had been played in below freezing temperatures. Let's end that drought as soon as possible.

If Northern teams actually played better football, they'd have it catch up to Clemson and Alabama and etc. But because they don't play better football...

I think you're either ignoring what others are saying, or you're just being obtuse.

People don't want to go to Minneapolis, MN. People don't want to go to Green Bay, WI. People don't want to go to Cleveland, OH. (I've been to all three - Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in Ohio is cool, food in Wisconsin is really good, but that's about it).

People want to go to Miami. People want to go to New Orleans. People want to go to Vegas. Because people want to have a fun time. Miami, N'Awlins and Vegas are fun. (I've been to all three. Fun is actually an understatement).

NY will probably get a SB again (they'll get the NFL draft for sure, because weather is more manageable in April). Chicago might get a SB (they'll definitely get an NFL draft again, too). You see, those are cities people want to go to, and - once the weather is manageable for fans, not players - the NFL doesn't hesitate planting tent pole events out there.

The NFL has a cash cow on their hands - and it's not even the game. It's Radio Row, it's the NFL Experience (which is an outdoor experience for fans - good luck doing that in 20 degree weather) it's outdoor concerts, it's outdoor events meeting current and former players - the game is the game, but the experience outside of the game is where the NFL (and cities hosting) make their money.

People love going to Atlanta, to Miami, New Orleans, JAX, Tampa, Vegas, LA, even SF with it's mild winters isn't bad. But going to Minny in winter is something I'd only do if I was forced to.

Why does New Orleans keep getting Super Bowls? Almost everyone else has to build a new stadium. Their last one they couldn’t even keep the lights on.

I like that teams are guarenteed a home game for winning their division, personally.

I think it made sense when half the schedule was division games and divisions were 5 teams.  When they went to 8 four team divisions they got diluted. It’s not that big of an accomplishment anymore.

New Orleans is a 24/7 party - Bourbon St, Harrah's Casino, the French Quarter and the best food in North America. 

I think everyone should visit at least once. Even if you're not a party type, just going there to enjoy the food and ambiance is worth it.
