Well, this was inevitable.
Now that New York is close to securing a bid to host the Super Bowl — we’ll find out in less than an hour — Washington D.C. wants one too.
“I think Washington should get one, no matter what,” Redskins owner Dan Snyder told Mark Maske of the Washington Post. “It is
the nation’s capital.”
Ah, but the Redskins don’t have a new stadium. When the NFL decided to accept New York’s bid for the Super Bowl, they gave the city a “one-time” waiver to break the rules requiring warm weather or an indoor stadium.
Perhaps the league will entertain the idea of another cold weather Super Bowl if New York wins the bid, and hosts a successful Super Bowl. But we can’t see the NFL breaking that “one-time” promise unless there is a shiny new stadium attached to the bid.
