Default Super Bowl on a Saturday? Bad weather in New Jersey next year could make it so

Quote:
Those of you pining for a Super Bowl Saturday may finally be in luck. According to a report in Sports Business Daily, the NFL is putting together a contingency plan for Super Bowl XLVIII should inclement weather hit Metlife Stadium and the New York/New Jersey area.
The plan reportedly includes moving the game to Saturday, which would be great for those of us at home who need a day to recover from our food and drink but awful for fans traveling to and from the site with set plane reservations.
It also includes delaying the first Super Bowl played in a cold-weather climate outdoors until later in the week, which would be terrible for us all.
From Sports Business Daily:
It is not a typical snowstorm that concerns the league but rather a weather crisis like a nor’easter, something that is capable of shutting down the city.
“We have to look at all the angles: storm arriving day-of-game, storm arriving prior to game, storm arriving after game,” one source said.

I Honestly wish it was on Saturday. 5am comes early on a Monday morning

It's going to be hard to schedule a SB party this yr.

Oh well, Mara got the SB he wanted. Regardless of whether it is good for the league.

Mara/Kraft/Rooney runs the NFL and they set up advantages for their teams. Giant penalizing to division foes for salary cap violations when there was no salary cap. Pats, spygate, Steelers if anybody watched the Pittsburgh/Seattle SB there's no question the Steelers received favortism.

They should just do it Saturday anyways. The weekend is an open weekend for sports. They get a full day to cover and play it. Then they get Sunday to do even more post-coverage while we get to rest and watch. Win/Win

Its 53 degrees here in Maryland tooday- 3 hr drive from Meadowlands...

I think its stupid, pandering to the Jets/Giants ad distracting to the teams playing...

Good luck with that NFL

Maybe the Jaguars will be nice and lend New York some tarps to install a temporary roof.
