Default Houston Bidding for 2012 Super Bowl

http://www.nfl.com/superbowl/story?id=0900...mp;confirm=true

Quote:
The major point cited in Dallas' advantage for the 2011 game over Indianapolis was that its new stadium could hold up to 100,000 for the Super Bowl. The new $700 million Lucas Oil Stadium scheduled for completion in August in Indianapolis has a potential capacity of about 70,000. Miles said that Phoenix, Houston and New Orleans were among the cities that might also submit bids for the 2012 game.
Damn, I hope we get it...

They have a chance, but not as much as they would have five years ago. That Superdome man... I think with Houston's great performance in 2004, plus Mayor White trying to get a 1,000+ room hotel in Downtown (again), Houston has a really good chance. AND, those light rail lines will be finished.

Default Re: Houston Bidding for 2012 Super Bowl

Although it's been done twice (SB 2 & 3 both in Miami, and SB 21 & 22 in California [Pasadena & San Diego]) I seriously doubt the powers that be would keep it in Texas 2 years in a row.

I'm guessing NO would get it as well.

Sorry guys, there is no way we get a superbowl in 2012. Its a know fact that the NFL does not like to pick teams that has a chance to go to the Superbowl. They like the Superbowl to stay a neutral site and the Texans will be in the middle of there multiple Superbowl runs.

Speaking of which, has a city that's hosting the Super Bowl ever had its home team play in the big game that season?

Closest thing to it is Super Bowl XIV which was in the Rose Bowl.

It was the LA Rams vs the Steelers.

Score was 19-31 Steelers.

Default Re: Houston Bidding for 2012 Super Bowl

The Astrodome Redevelopers just signed a long term lease on the ol' girl... A big hotel right across the street may being us a Super Bowl.

"A group of entrepreneurs missed a Tuesday deadline for reaching a deal to turn the Dome into a convention hotel, but have negotiated a proposed long-term lease for the aging sports venue.

Astrodome Redevelopment Co. and the Harris County Sports and Convention Corp. will forward the lease proposal to the county attorney's office for review Monday, County Attorney Mike Stafford said.

The sports corporation can ask the Texans and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo for input on the lease if the county attorney's office finds that it does not violate their rights, Stafford said.

"In reading the draft, we didn't see any problems," he said.

In summer 2006, the sports corporation and Commissioners Court gave preliminary approval to Astrodome Redevelopment's $450 million proposal to turn the Dome into a 1,300-room hotel.

Yup.

Just because Houstonians were nice doesn't mean that they want the SB back here. We are too spread out.

If the powers that be had their way, the SB would be in Miami and NOLA and that's it. Because of the partying.

Second, TC touched on the city being spread out, although they used to have Super Bowls in Pasadena Ca., so go figure there.

Also agree with TC about NOLA and Miami - traditional 'Party Cities'.

On the bright side, we have hosted 2 Super Bowls which is more than a lot of cities can say....

But on the other hand, I fully expect Dallas (being spread out all over the place) to land alot of superbowls for time to come. They have the ability to make that stadium seat (I believe) around 90,000 if needed.
More revenue to the NFL, more superbowls.

It also didn't help Houston that we had bad weather leading up until the game (mid 40'-50s, raining).

Isn't the world supposed to end in December 2012? Perhaps we should hold the SB at some Mayan pyramid. This looks like a good location...

yeah, the year the Texans finally make it to the Super Bowl. But we never get to see the game because the world ends. Figures.

I doubt Houston will host a SB for a long while, too. It will surprise me if we ever see it again, to be honest.

it was just like New Orleans. Of course, with much, much crummier weather. And if you extended it by 50 miles, then put a total of 20 cabs in the entire city. And if the traffic was reprehensible and caused you to re-evaluate your will to live. Then it was just like the Big Easy.

Bill Simmons.... Just another BSPN jerk-off. Whatever..

Point being, for every negative comment, there were plenty of positives including Tagliabue...



Also, at least Kid Rock, Nelly and Diddy like H-town:
Quote:
They all had positive comments about the host city.

"I love Houston. I've been here plenty of times," Nelly said.

"I've always had a strong relationship with Houston. One of my managers is from here. We've come down here from day one and played for 500 people. Now we're lucky enough to build that up and play for 15 to 20,000," Kid Rock said.

"I've been coming here a lot lately over the last two years. It always looks clean and beautiful to me. It looks good. I love it," P. Diddy said.
