The Game shouldn't be about what city has the best weather - it's football for crying out loud.

^ Agreed, Vegas would be a blast.

I believe every team should be on a rotation, but at the same time certain cities should be required to have a dome. Chicago, Green Bay and Minneapolis come to mind.

Minneapolis already has a dome.

The overriding idealism in this thread is cute. However, most of you seem to not understand that the Super Bowl is a monster event that takes years to prepare for and that not every city in the NFL is capable of hosting. This is not just a weather thing. Jacksonville had to bring in boats to accomodate all of the people. Jacksonville was ripped to shreds for lacking the infrastructure a city needs to host the Super Bowl. Everyone, EVERYONE, needs to take note that Jacksonville, a city in Florida, struggled to host this event. You really think Green Bay could pull it off? Even if the Super Bowl was in June, Green Bay could not host it. Buffalo and Cincinnati would possibly struggle with hotel space. I don't know the exact numbers, but I do know that Cincinnati's lack of hotel space has been a very heated debate on the Urban Ohio forums in the past.

I was not aware Minneapolis had a dome. Chill with the condescending attitude.

Jacksonville will not have a team, they are out of the equation.

How about the previous year winner host the superbowl? It would provide drama and incenitive for cities (such as Pittsburgh) to build more hotels and better accomadations for vistors

Pittsburgh should get a superbowl. Possibly the best football city in America.

Are you aware that I am referencing a Super Bowl that was held in Jacksonville a few years ago? We can't have a discussion if you are not aware of the subject at hand.

Yes. Are you aware I said am talking about the future. No need to discuss a team to be in the rotation for a superbowl if they will no longer be in that city. Jax is moving.
