Not surprised since the game definitely had a interesting storyline for both teams.

Just thinking... last year the SB was in New York... what was the weather like in New York this week? .... 20s and 30s... just had a massive snowstorm... - they dodged a bullet last year.

This! I firmly believe that every NFL city should have the opportunity to host a Super Bowl! Football is a game of elements after all. The way I see it, the Super Bowl unfortunately is not affordable to the average football fan. Hey look, if it's too cold for these primadonna celebrity types to watch the Super Bowl in say Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Chicago or Green Bay, then they don't have to go!

so you want to hold the SB experience and all the parties and everything else in -20 degree weather with snow blowing? The game is almost secondary to all the build up and parties and "experiences".much more accommodating in 75 degrees than 12 degrees

Yes. Why should cities in colder climates be denied the opportunity to host it? I'm not too fond of cold weather either, but again it is a game of elements after all.

Because it's about the week of, and it's about the money. Nobody wants to go visit Cleveland for a week, especially not in the bitter cold when there's a fair chance they'll get stuck somewhere from the snow. Places like Phoenix and Tampa are great to visit this time of year.

This idea of "its a game of elements".says who? If the elements were a constant to the sport, they would have never allowed domes to be built

Simple solution then! DON'T ATTEND THE GAME!!! Seriously why should those cities, all of which have loyal followings to their teams, are knowledgeable football fans, not to mention line the NFL's pockets by purchasing merchandise, tickets...ect... be denied just because a bunch of primadonnas don't want to sit out in the cold? It's a slap in the face to the fans in those cities. The NFL may as well just come out and say it "hey (insert cold weather city here)_________ we love your money, but forget about hosting a Super Bowl."


As for not coming to Cleveland, because of being stuck in the snow, Super Bowls have been held in cold weather cities such as Minnesota and Detroit. The only difference is they have a dome.
