I know. I think it has been a longtime. I believe one of the Bills four super bowl appearances was played like that.

I believe it was one of the Dallas/Buffalo SBs in the early 90's. They said it was a logistical nightmare....it isn't just another game, it's an event....2 weeks works

Since Los Angeles is the second largest city in the country and doesn't have a football team, it would be a good alternative.

No; some cities can't support a SB and some stadiums are a disaster to sell expensive ticket to that game. Demand drives price like anything else. This isn't the 60's NFL Championship at all ;it needs certain cities with enough hotels/ entertainment and a stadium that has best conditions weather wise.

Off the top of my head I think Green Bay is the only town that might struggle hosting the Super Bowl. Weather issues aside, of course. Even so, I'd go for it. A Super Bowl at Lambeau would be awesome (despite my dislike for the Packers). It would also bring out better fans on a rotating system. I'll take real fans over jetsetting corporate clientele.

I disagree the events is what makes football popular with the fans. I haven't seen many people complain about the events.
