What better City to host a SB then Houston in the middle of a dynasty in 2012?!
On a slightly more serious note. I think after the Job Houston did in 2004 it deserves another shot at hosting a SB.
I really hope we get it, but I am willing to bet the give it to Indy, I hope I am wrong.
I think it was John McClain that said this, but I'm not sure. He said he thought Indy would get the Superbowl in 2012, but they might go ahead and vote for the next one at the same time and that Houston has a better shot at that one (2013).
New stadium or not, Indianapolis is not a good place to host a Super Bowl. I used to live there and I can assure you that it's a relatively small, uneventful town with very cold Februarys. It just lacks SB intangibles.
And what if Indy goes to the superbowl the same year they host it? Will they have it somewhere else or just let Indy have homefield advantage?
You earn it, you get to keep it.
I would love to see Houston in the Super Bowl while they host it.
Ok, I don't care about the city, just the Super Bowl!
A "Dallas at Houston" Super Bowl would be insane...
I remember hearing owners kinda' get a wink-wink and nudge-nudge about getting a Super Bowl before they build a new stadium. Where was the last new satdium to NOT get a Super Bowl within a few years of completion?
Agree with Tennessee, also I would add Washington's FedEx Field (although it opened in 1997??) and is also the largest capacity in the NFL (currently).
No it wouldn't cause I would go to jail for assaulting a cowboys fan.
Well it looks like the NFL owners don't agree with you because Indy gets 2012 SB. If they let Detroit host on I can't see why Indy can't. Just give them one to showcase their new stadium and then bring those superbowls back down south where they belong. We might get 2013 unless they give it to MIAMI...again. You are right about Indy being small, but most NFL cities seem small to this spread out place we call Houston.
What in Tennessee could attract any Super Bowl votes? I mean, there's only a certain amount of fun to be had in loogie spittin contests. Maybe a competitive game of pin the rug on Bud? Or maybe a game of "Are you smarter than'....Vince Young?
I'm pretty sure we could put together a general 'bail' fund for you and some others - that might be tempted.
If it's not in Houston there is no better place than Indy. I will love to see how the Colts fans react to the Texans playing in their stadium in February.
NFL owners don't like H-town. I'm sure our burning hatred of Dud Adams doesn't help.
I know the league wants to spread it around, but Detroit and now Indy, I guess the NFL is ok with everything being held indoors come February...
I knew Houston would not get it...And Phoenix just had it, so Indy and the new stadium was a lock. I do not see it being held here any time soon...
But who cares, I would rather see several playoff games in Reliant than the Super Bowl !!
I think if a team builds a new stadium with a retractable roof, then it's virtually guaranteed to get a Super Bowl. If Indy had chosen to build an open air stadium, I don't think they would have gotten the Super Bowl.
McClain seems to think that there's not a good chance of Houston getting a superbowl bid in the next 10 years. I don't think that's too far off the mark (for once), and it seems that the NFL in general has always had a distaste for Houston NFL teams.
Even though this city could probably host an Olympics and it not be too much to handle, the Superbowl is just too much.
