    I guess for security reasons it could be good ...but on the other hand..the same city would benefit every 3 years economically..I guess we'd have to see how the profits would be shared.

    Of course what I think means nothing here but I'd be very much against it and I'm pretty sure that almsot every fan outside of Miami would agree with me. The same city every three years pretty much makes the rest of us hosting a Super Bowl all that much harder. If they do it and then someplace else like San Diego or New Orleans jumps up and makes a similar investment then what does the NFL do? Do they give that city a Super Bowl every three years ? Then it's an open date every third year for the rest of us?

    I think it's a crock and I'm against any kind of set rotation. One very good thing about all the new stadiums is that in many places we're getting Super Bowls where we've not seen them before or where we've not seen them in a long time. I like the variety.

    I agree with you... I am wondering if their would be revenue sharing from the "super site" to the other 31 cities.. I hope this thing doesn't go through, I am like you.. I like the variety also

    Horrible idea. Its hard enough to get a superbowl. Plus, that would give the Florida teams a huge advantage if they make it to the superbowl, and its the 3rd year.

    I just dont like it.

    I like the idea of ithe SB being a 2 to 3 week thing but I wouldn't like it in Miami every 3 yrs! I think that if the SB does become a 2 week thing and the Pro Bowl is played in the same city as the SB then the Pro Bowl would become more interesting and maybe players would actually show why they were chosen to play there.

    That is absolutely retarded.

    Its about Huizenga wanting the superbowls in FLA.
    Personally i think it should vary from year to year. I like the idea of Northen Cities hosting Superbowls. I feel all stadiums should be granted the oppurtunity to host the festivities.

    Im pretty sure this won't pass. The owners will be voting on this and i am pretty sure the majority of the owners will not like this idea. Also, splitting the proceeds among the 31 teams still wouldnt be fair because the city of Miami would pretty much be striking gold every 3 years. I remember when the SB came to Houston it cam along with huge sales among many Houston businesses. All the cities that have nfl teams deserve the same chance of getting to host a super bowl as any other team including Miami.

    So, if you were the MTA and were offered an extra $40 mil over what the jets offered... what would you do? Cablevision bids higher

    Can't find the link, but the chronic noted at the owner's meetings that Houston and Atlanta were the front runners for 2009.

    Remember back in the day all it took was a certain numbered seat stadium to get a bowl?

    Well this isn't the story from the chonicle but its from the NFL.com site so I think it might be official. I really hope we get it but I'll happy if TAMPA BAY! gets it too. As long as Miami doesn't get it because they're already hosting SB XLI so they would have 2 SBs in 3 yrs! The story

    Okay, so if other events are pulling out of Atlanta as they have outgrown the city... they're expecting a chance to get a Super Bowl?

    NAHB leaves Atlanta

    By the way, I think today is the final day to submit the bids.

    I like the Super Bowl going to different cities but I hate Super Bowls in Northern cities. Would you want to go to Minneapolis or Detroit around February 1st and stay there for 5-7 days? It sucks at that time of year. I would rather go somewhere else to see it, somewhere that doesn't require layered clothing.

    FWIW, I think we are offer a very competitive product to what Atlanta can assemble for the SB and may actually offer a superior package, but no way we beat them out for the '09 SB.
    Some things against it that are beyond our control: we just had it year before last and there is already going to be a game in Texas soon after '09 when the Cowboys will be playing a SB in their new stadium in Arlington (something like '11 or '12 I think).
