Aikman will lead the way on next Dallas Super Bowl bid

The quarterback who won three Super Bowl rings in Dallas will lead the way in trying to bring the 2016 Super Bowl to Dallas.

Cowboys Hall of Famer Troy Aikman will chair the effort to land the 2016 Super Bowl for North Texas, the Star-Telegram reports.

The 2011 Super Bowl will take place at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, and although Dallas can’t bid for a future Super Bowl until it has already hosted the 2011 game, North Texas officials and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones definitely want the game in 2016.

The 2016 game will be the 50th Super Bowl. That’s Super Bowl L in Roman numerals. And to these eyes, that looks kind of strange.

    Will he be with Todd McGay? Maybe they could get togehter and do a “Mock SB Draft Effort”. Kiper could be involved as the “Hair Dresser”.

    Not if you’re a Bills fan.
    Boom. Roasted.

    Personally, I think that the 50th should be held in the oldest teams’ stadium. Or even, the oldest team to stay in one state/city. But, you know that NFL will NEVER let Soldier Field or Lambeau host a SB.

    The whole Roman numeral thing is pretentious anyway. Let’s just use numbers from this point forward.

    Troy Aikman is also a spokesperson for ‘wing stop’, the lowest rung of the chicken wing ladder.
    ‘don’t eat wing stop! Bad chicken–MESS YOU UP!’
    -seinfeld reference [duh]
    and Troy Aikman totally likes dudes.

    Super Bowl L…
    Didn’t the NFL say that either this year or last year will be the last year that Roman Numerals will be used for the Super Bowl?
    Can I get a job writing on this site? Doesn’t seem like you have to know much. Good job Super L’s

    I’m a Bills fan, but that is funny – how clever.
    Hopefully, we could get a Super Bowl W before then.

    So the Cardinals should host Super Bowl L? I can get on board with this.

    He’s right, the one in Los Angeles.

  17. DJSlyBri says: May 4, 2010 11:26 AM

    Super Bowl L will be in Los Angeles whether or not a team is there by then. And it should be there.

  18. jerseykingpin says: May 4, 2010 11:45 AM

    Thats the only way the cowgirls will see a super bowl if they host it but they won’t be playing in it

  19. favrecansuckit says: May 4, 2010 12:23 PM

    Cowboys Stadium sells itself, is it really a good idea to have Aikman chair this? Once he starts presenting to the committee, that monotone voice will have them snoring instantly.

  20. Noz says: May 4, 2010 12:29 PM

    Aikman is a winner. Consider it done.

  21. jusford says: May 4, 2010 1:05 PM

    Hosting two Super Bowls within’ 5 years. I’d think some other city’s exist besides Dallas.

  22. boysroll says: May 4, 2010 1:14 PM

    sweet…we host two SB’s and win will win both with the home crowd…Get your popcorn out!!!LMFAO.

  23. Complete Fan says: May 4, 2010 1:37 PM

    They’ll go where they can fit 101,000 people at $1,000 a ticket.
    Why doesn’t the NFL and the local council rename the place Super Bowl, Tx?
