    Not a disaster but the weather screwed things up enough.

    I seem to remember a bunch of media types having an awful time.

    It definitely didn't go the way most wanted it to.

    Effective but dumb Ford commercial. Like the car and the big cat.

    Well, I think it was because they didn't like the logistics of everything. Most comments I read were that the NFL should've setup in Fort Worth. Have stuff in Dallas, but the main hub should've been Fort Worth, because they thought FW's downtown was better.

    Without the weather, then I doubt the logistics would've mattered much. It's a 30 min drive between the two cities on a good day.

    Every Super Bowl should be in New Orleans. Not feasible, I understand, but it would be great if it were.

    Ive never got the appeal of New Orleans. I've gone several times and find it to be just okay.

    You have to be a party person. I'm ok with it for a day or so.

    I always have a good time, but I see too much despair outside of the French Quarter to be truly impressed by it.

    For an event such as this, the party is the thing. And the food. I can see why it stays in the rotation.

    DFW won its bid with the new building, and it may get another someday. But it shouldn't be a part of the regular rotation, IMO.

    I love the food and have some awesome memories from Mardi Gras '98, but I agree that New Orleans is a bit overrated.

    How the bad weather was handled and the seating issues they had is a big turn-off for the NFL. Plus a lot of options for the NFL, a lot of new stadiums opening that will move into the rotation soon (49ers, Vikings, Falcons stadium). Cowboys Stadium will fall out of favor. At least Jerry will have the college football championship though

    There aren't enough hotels or convention space in the DTFW area, which was stated multiple times. ESPN was the only entity to setup in DTFW. There were plenty of places to do what they wanted in the DTD area, but the events were purposely spread out. They will never get another Superbowl with another bid so spread out.

    Also traffic was bad. However everything was over shadowed by the weather and the starting issue. I think we will put in another bid but is up to the owners. Houston"s first Super Bowl had its problems and they got another shot so who knows

    Blame Laura Miller. If the stadium was built in downtown Dallas like it should have been then it would have been a perfect setup with all of the new uptown developments.

    That's the key, Rant. You have to have the hotel space. I'm kind of shocked that a big city like Dallas doesn't have the hotel and convention space. Wow.
