Just heard on Channel 11 news that TB got the SB for 2009. SHOCKER!!
that's some BS
Found it, per NFL.com
Tampa Bay awarded Super Bowl XLIII
Tampa awarded Super Bowl...
It was also on Channel 11 news!
When would be the next Super Bowl for Houston to target...2010, 2011?
I read somewhere that 2010 would go to the Jets, if they get their new stadium build. Don't know about 2011.
Have been waiting for the announcement since 10am...what a waste of time.
Any theories as to why Tampa?
So, when is our next chance at this? 2020?
2009 was our last chance unless the jets cant get their stadium workin.Here I hope this link can explain why they got it.
That really came out of nowhere . The two frontrunners were Houston and Atl from what Ive been hearing .
I was out of the Country for the last SB , now it looks like I will have to wait even LONGER to go my 1st SB . :brickwall
NFL politics!! I feel like kicking myself when I get caught up in the excitement of something like this!! The NFL is all about the good old boys club, you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours, than they are in giving the SB to a deserving city!! Miami would have been a better choice than TB!! Even if they do have the SB in 2007!! I feel robbed!!
Wow! Tampa Bay! Another small city hosting the SB?! I don't get it but I'm not worried. We'll get another one pretty soon.
You'll most likely have to wait until we get a new stadium because just look at this, from 2004 (Sb XXXVIII) to 2010 (Last SB site chosen yet) all but one of these sites have either new or renovated stadiums:
2004 XXXVIII Houston, Reliant Stadium: New
2005 XXXIX Jacksonville, ALLTell Stadium: Renovated
2006 XL Detroit, Ford Field: New
2007 XLI Miami, Dolphins Stadium: Old (Will be 20 yrs old in 2007)
2008 XLII Arizona (Glendale), Cardinals Stadium: New
2009 XLIII Tampa, Raymond James Stadium: Still relatively new (will only be 11 yrs old by 2009
2010 XLIV New York, Jets Stadium: New
You can coun't on 2011 probably being in one of the new stadiums like maybe cowboys or Colts, but hey! If my Bucs could get an 11 yr old stadium an SB who knows maybe we do have a chance.
Apparently some city officials were saying how other cities, ATL & TB, were going to pay to have the SB in their city. What is it coming to now..the Olympics!? I guess if the SB generated $300mil for Houston the last time, Mayor White could have paid the NFL SB committee at least $100mil to host the 2009 SB. I wonder if that is the future of the SB. 5 year deal for $50mil per.
I guess the NFL & SB Committe have that type of power considering the amount of $$$ generated for a host city's economy.
So much for the Downtown revitalization plan and the Light Rail!!! Money not well spent!! And mayor white said he would not give into tactics of "buying" the SuperBowl...ummm, what did you do with the billions of $$$ dumped into Downtown and the light rail!?
Whats wrong with TB? They've already hosted 3 SBs so obviously they know how to throw a party. And TB is probably a fun city since they didn't even need a new stadium in their pitch to get the SB.
In all likelihood, this was our last shot at a SB in the near term. Ours will be an old stadium with many new ones up and running by the time the next open date comes along. Our next real chance will come in about 2035 when we build a new stadium.
When's Dallas getting theirs? 2011? I guess we could go for 2012 - but there'll be another new stadium somewhere that will get priority...
Very surprising, I was sure we wouldn't get it but was just as sure that
Atlanta would ! TB was a real long shot - I'm sure there were Vegas odds,
wonder what they were ?
A major surprise. Looks like Houston was eliminated based on having hosted it more recently.
