    So, the NYJ will possibly get to host in 2010... was 2009 ever decided? Wasn't Houston getting another soon?

    I never heard a final decision of the 2009 Super Bowl...

    I think it's good to see teams like the Jets and Lions get super bowls after year of having to deal with the Miami, New Orleans, San Diego rotation...

    Don't remember where I heard or read it a few days ago, but evidently Miami and San Diego are making a pitch that they and another California venue should become a regular rotation for the SB (they conspicuously left New Orleans out of the proposal) and say they will build all sorts of extra facilities for hosting SB events if the NFL will grant the rotation. IMO that is a horrible idea. With all the teams/cities that have committed to building new stadiums there are plenty of suitable venues and the NFL should be going toward allowing fans from as many cities as possible participate in the experience of hosting a SB. I understand leaving out venues like Lambeau, Three Rivers and the Patriots stadium--it is dang cold that time of year and I guess for those teams it is the trade off of home field advantage late in the season and in the play-offs vs. getting a SB.

    Isn't that a May decision. Supposed to be primarily a battle between Houston and Atlanta .. per John McClain and radio media people.

    I would personally rather go to Miami than Detroit for a Super Bowl. I think that the Super Bowl should be reserved for the the Sun Belt. The best locations IMO for Super Bowls are Tampa, Miami, New Orleans, Phoenix, LA, and San Diego. Houston is close behind but we cannot assure nice weather and we don't have the culture of New Orleans. Dallas and Atlanta might pull it off. It seems like it can get very cold in Atlanta in February though. I wouldn't mind seeing a 4 year rotation with Southeast (Miami/Tampa/Jacksonville/Atlanta with Miami and Tampa getting most of them), South Central (New Orleans/Houston/Dallas with New Orleans getting the bulk of them), Southwest (California or Phoenix) and the 4th is for new stadiums.
