    Sure the league survived back then, but it thrived once the SB became a huge part of the fabric of football.

    I'm not so sure I agree with that. I often hear when sloppy play is going on that the casual fan doesn't like it.

    With that said, it really doesn't make a difference because the true fans is where the league makes its money. If I hadn't seen MLB and NBA drive its fans away in droves through constantly crapping on the true fans and making idiotic decisions that displeased the true fans, it wouldn't be a big issue with me.

    I disagree with just about all of that lol

    I don't think the casual fan understands sloppy play. To me, a casual fan is rooting for fantays players and that sort of thing. They could care less about blown assignments, and probably don't even notice them, so long as their guys are scoring touchdowns. And I think that's where the majority of the money comes from as well. The die-hard football fan is becoming a relic. Younger fans, including ones my age, have no appreciation for...or even any understanding of the game at all.

    But people want to party as well. Many of those attending are there for the week long festivities as well as the game. Arizona isn't a party place. New Orleans, Miami and San Diego are.

    Put the SB permanently in Pasadena...The Rose Bowl is the perfect setting...I hope it is -20 and a blinding blizzard raging when SB 48 kicks off...

    With the exception of that one superbowl with the Colts and Bears, when has it rained in Miami for the SB? I don't think it rained in 2010, 1999, or 1995.

    To me any SB should be played in a domed or retractable roofed stadium regardless of the city the game is in.

    Weather should never be a factor.

    I hope it does snow. I don't see much reason why the Super Bowl needs to be played in warm weather or in a dome. Conference championship games are often played up north or in cold/windy/rainy weather. And over the past several years, most of those games have been entertaining with fairly high TV ratings.

    Its gonna be even better if the SB is Denver vs N.O. Too high powered offenses, and they get shut down by a storm. They will hype up the high powered attacks and get a 10-9 ball game.

    Did you not see the Bears/Colts Super Bowl from 2006?

    Hold it indoors or if it's going to be outdoors, on the west coast i.e. Rose Bowl or San Diego.

    They thought the same about Detroit/Philly. Those are 2 explosive offenses. It was ugly at first and 8-0 at half but then Philly ended up in the 40s and Detroit in the high 20s. Teams adjust after awhile to the snow. Eagles did most of theirs on the ground, though. And a few connects deep on the pass.
