New York/New Jersey will host Super Bowl XLVIII

As widely expected and believed, NFL owners have voted to award Super Bowl XLVIII to New York/Jersey.

The game will be played at Meadowlands Stadium in February 2014.  Without a roof.

We’ve submitted a column on the subject to SportingNews.com.  As pointed out earlier today, I don’t like it.  MDS does.  Rosenthal hasn’t shared his opinion, but since he lives in New York/New Jersey, I think I know where he stands.

The decision came on the fourth ballot.  The first try failed to generate 24 votes for any one city.  The second vote finished the same, and Miami fell out of the process as the third-place finisher.

On the third ballot, between New York/New Jersey and Tampa, neither got 24 votes.

Finally, New York/New Jersey won with at least 17 votes.

    And the Detroit Lions will represent the NFC

  2. Coutre1 says: May 25, 2010 4:26 PM

    You mean New Jersey will host the Super Bowl. Unless the Bills are helping.

  3. Hooker McTitties says: May 25, 2010 4:26 PM

    I hope the blizzard of all blizzards his NYC that weekend. Can’t wait.

  4. Dwight K. Schrute says: May 25, 2010 4:27 PM

    FACT: The perfect place to host is on my beet farm, Schrute Farms outside Honesdale, PA. There’s plenty of seating, table making demonstrations, and some running water. “We can’t be beet”.

    Wow didn’t see that one coming. No wait…I did.

  6. ☻☼CBS, FOX, ESPN, NFLN nbc says: May 25, 2010 4:27 PM

    Eli Manning and jaMARKus Sanchez will both be in the stadium, just not on the playing field

  7. Bob S. says: May 25, 2010 4:28 PM

    Why weren’t counts revealed after each round vote like Olympics? Why bother having a 4th vote once you were down to 2 teams at 3rd vote? Would anyone with those SAME 2 cities the only ones left, would they change their vote if the city that voted for got only 23 votes? These votes were bought and sold! PSL scammed ticketholders built that un-needed outdoor stadium – guaranteed most of them won’t have their seat linsed seat for themselves for this game.

  8. JustRay says: May 25, 2010 4:28 PM

    Since everyone wants a SB to be played at their field, I want 2015 SB in my backyard. My neighbors deserve it.

  9. drew says: May 25, 2010 4:30 PM

    This is so stupid. Now every city with sh** weather will want to host a Super Bowl. Terrible choice by the NFL.

  10. CT Pats Fan says: May 25, 2010 4:31 PM

    Let’s start a rotation – every conference gets to host one, each team gets their turn in the conference rotation.

  11. Schau3r says: May 25, 2010 4:31 PM

    Great, next stop is Lambeau where real tradition resides…

  12. Citizen Strange says: May 25, 2010 4:31 PM

    To repeat part of what I posted on the Snyder post.
    There shouldn’t be another northern city, outdoor, cold weather Super Bowl until at least 2030.

  13. Jag4Life says: May 25, 2010 4:31 PM

    The biggest game on thebiggest stage on the biggest sports day in all of sports should not be played with who knows what kind of elements. It can be snow, it can be sleet, but one things for sure it will be freezing. This game will blow if there’s snow.

  14. efangule says: May 25, 2010 4:31 PM

    stop calling it New York/New Jersey.. It’s New Jersey…
    Unless they built it on the state line, which they didn’t, it can’t be in two states at once.

  15. matthoover says: May 25, 2010 4:32 PM

    This is how championship football teams should be determined. I think this is a great idea and hope it’s a trend that continues. A Super Bowl in Pittsburgh would be a great time.

  16. footballformula says: May 25, 2010 4:32 PM

  21. Patsfan1776 says: May 25, 2010 4:35 PM

    No blizzard. A blizzard would mean warm temps between 20 and 30 degrees. The real killer would be single digit temps with a sub zero windchill and a game between Arizona and San Diego. I’m sure those fans have the gear to attend a February game in the Northeast.
    Of course we all know the fix will be in and the officiating crew will ensure a Giants-Jets SB that year. Calling it now!

  22. 305phinphan says: May 25, 2010 4:36 PM

    Wow I can’t believe the NFL would host a great game like the SuperBowl in the armpit of America.

  23. bhill410 says: May 25, 2010 4:37 PM

    For the life of me I dont understand why anyone is against this. For the 82k who are privileged enough to attend they will watch a football game in the cold – not really a big deal 3/4s of the counrty does it from mid-october on and survive. Ticket sales will obviously not be an issue and corporate sponsorship will drive up the amount charged. NYC is a top tourist destination all year long regardless of your feelings on the place and has the infastructure to easily handle an event of this magnitude. There are plenty of strip clubs. Its very very close to manhatten even though its in NJ and the Bills comment just does not make sense (we get it you play in ny state no one cares). And for those watching on TV you will see a game that has a better chance of being played in dry conditions than a Miami superbowl which is way more likely to have rain.

  24. Belichick Is God says: May 25, 2010 4:37 PM

    Good… the Patriots play well in the cold

  25. I MURDER HOES/187403 says: May 25, 2010 4:38 PM

    Im a westcoast man myself but I love the idea of this eastcoast torrential snow superbowl. If they cant forecast weather correctly 5 days a week, what makes anybody think they can forecast blizzards in 4 f’n years?

  26. DinGle_DanGle says: May 25, 2010 4:39 PM

    NICE!!!!!!!!!!!! no other place will be turned out like NYC, most Moguls can stay home and host events and not have to travel to DA SOUTH!!!!!!

    i love it. nice job NFL. GB 2018 next.

  28. FinFanRod says: May 25, 2010 4:41 PM

    Why the hell is everyone calling it NY/NJ? The stadium is located in NJ. Both teams will stay and train in NJ. Is it that bad of an area that they need to attach NY to the name to make it seem more attractive?

  29. MEDTXPACK says: May 25, 2010 4:42 PM

    why would you have the worldest best sporting game in the worst area of the country, jerseyyyyyyy sucks. their shore is like a wet landfill….

  30. Bob S. says: May 25, 2010 4:42 PM

    Just watch the refs calls during that year in Jets and Giants games to make sure one or both get to the game!

    Hey 305phinfan, armpit of America eh? Florida has a worse crime rate than New York does. Also, NY is rich in history and culture. Miami is rich in rafts floating illegal immigrants into the country. Could you have sounded any less intelligent? I don’t think so.

  34. prophet of the light says: May 25, 2010 4:47 PM

    A decent snow fall and some wind which won’t greatly inhibit the playing experience, in HD, would be one of the most memorable things to EVER happen in Super Bowl HISTORY.
    Yea, just ask Hockey how it worked out for them. It almost made hockey worth watching. Imagine what it would do for football.

  35. PackFaninPackLand says: May 25, 2010 4:48 PM

    I hope it’s Dec. 31, 1967 again that day.
    i.e the “Ice Bowl” part II.
    Let’s see how many of those rich f-cks that only show-up at an NFL stadium on Super Sunday, and then it’s only to be “seen”, will go then !!!
    My guess is about 10,000 and most of them will huddled in the luxury boxes.
    By the way, Lambeau was full that day back in ’67, with “real fans”.

  36. nyjshane88 says: May 25, 2010 4:48 PM

    Where’s Pier?
    Told ya so. The haters won’t stop but deep down we all know that an event this big was made for the biggest stage of them all, NYC. Not only that, this is gonna be such a huge success that it won’t be the last cold weather SB. I sincerely hope that Philly, NE, Pitt, Baltimore, Denver, they all deserve it as much as any wussbag southern city that thinks football is a game to be played in 90 degree weather and gets the game every other year anyway. The anti-NY crew will bitch and moan but this will be a spectacular showing of the biggest game of the year.
    Oh boo hoo it might be chilly…it might be windy…toughen up.

  37. Bob S. says: May 25, 2010 4:48 PM

    eli manning has a problem with meadowlands wind as do other passing qbs.

  38. footballformula says: May 25, 2010 4:49 PM

    Let’s stop the talk about other cold weather cities hosting a Super Bowl. This is a one-time thing to recognize the New Meadowlands Stadium and to reward the NY Giants for being the team that today’s NFL was built on. If not for Wellington Mara agreeing to revenue sharing 50 years ago, then small market teams like Green Bay, KC, etc. would not exist today. He was the foundation for the current structure of the NFL. It’s a one-time acknowledgment by the NFL to the memory of the selfless actions of an NFL legend, Wellington Mara. And once again, the Jets are just riding the coat tails of the Giants.

    Just play the game! Weenies who complain about the possible conditions need not come. I’m 56 years old and remember when there was no such thing as a domed stadium. The players just went out and played and played hard. There were a ton of Hall of Famers who came out of a pre-domed NFL. Plus with the extra bucks that go to the winners and the losers in the SB they should be willing to play in their underwear in the middle of a blizzard.
    Quit the whining! It’s football or is supposed to be.

    Its not as big deal as everyone thinks. I will go on just fine. They will be prepared for anything and it will all go off without a problem. Football is a sport ment to be played outside not in fancy domes. If the weather is unapealing to you don’t go simple. Its only a big deal cause its the offseason and things are slow. If they announced it during the season would everyone pay as much attention and complain? I guess not.

  50. BigSuede says: May 25, 2010 5:03 PM

    Ha Ha- I can’t wait to see all the corporate executives out in single digit temperatures!!! I wouldn’t be surprised if the weather is miserable we will see our first unfilled seats at a super bowl.
    I also can’t wait to hear the losing team say, “if only the weather was decent, it would prove we were the decent team.” It will be all about the running game for 2014- pathetic

    I love how everyone’s talking about the crappy weather. It’s NJ not Siberia. On the date in question over the last 5 years the temperature has actually been 50+ twice. It’s not impossible that it wouldn’t even be the coldest SB played, including the southern SBs.

    Reporter: “But won’t you be cold watching an outdoor game in New Jersey in February?”
    Goodell: “No, not at all. My ass will be in a luxury box.”

  62. finsbooyah says: May 25, 2010 5:23 PM

    Stop saying New York/New Jersey… It’s going to make my head explode… It’s in New Jersey, about a half hour drive away from Manhattan. The only thing this has to do with New York is that is where all the uppity media types will be staying during Super Bowl week. I can’t take one more moron claiming this game is going to be played in New York.
    That being said, I hope I’m wrong, but I think this is very bad idea

  63. Jaydub says: May 25, 2010 5:25 PM

    Bunch of pussies crying about bad weather?! Must be fans of dome teams with no spines and no balls to speak of. Football was meant to be played in the elements, and if the rest of the football watching world has to endure nasty weather while watching the games, then the well dressed corporate jagoffs who dont really give a shit about the actual game but are only there because they want to be seen, should be made to suffer as well. F ‘em all, and anyone else who can’t handle anything under 75 degrees with a lot of sunshine. Stay the F home and give your tickets to real fans who will actually watch the game and wont whine about the cold.

    David56: Quit the whining! It’s football or is supposed to be.
    Ah, that would be a “no”.
    The origin of pro football is college football– and a game intended to be played between Labor Day and Thanksgiving. Only greedy owners and networks (who make more money by elongating the regular seasons) have somehow brainwashed a couple of generations of fans that somehow that it was “meant to be played” in the dead of winter. For my sports dollar, I want to see the game, especially playoff games, played in “ideal” conditions, with the full compliment of strategy and FOOTBALL skills on display. Not watching 300-lb athletes attempting to tip-toe around on a rock-hard, frozen ice rink and the championship going to the team that slips and falls the least. But as it has been for 50 years, money dictates everything.
    Just a shame.
    Nothing could be further from the truth.

    Nice comeback for a 12 year old. Bottom line is New York/Jersey is disgusting. I have been their on business and I was shocked by the way these cesspool states are. Then you throw in the fact that the people there are just as bad if not worse. I feel bad for any decent people living there but I have never came across any. I think I’d rather live in Cuba than have to stomach another day in that crap hole.

    I dont like it and I wouldnt want one in NE or any other cold climate either. I’ve been to several SB’s. It’s the outdoor events, parties, and ability to walkaround and shoot-the-shit with other fans that makes the week leading into the game so awesome. I think all of that gets crushed by the cold weather climate.

    More like the NFL throwing a bone to their pet cat. There’s nothing fair about the precedence this stupid decision sets – especially if this is only a one time deal. Goodall is getting ready to export to London.

    Let me get this straight, They want to hype a New York City Super Bowl but play it in a swamp in Jersey and expect Super Bowl week to be packed by reporters? New Jersey is the most expensive state in the country and news papers and organizations are broke, let alone the lack of hotel space, everyone is going to be staying at the Hampton Inn in Newark.
    Then people talk about the weather, shit a snow game is the best case scenario, more like blistering winds and freezing rain. “Football is mean to be played in the weather” yes, that’s why you win homefield advantage for the playoffs not the netural site Super Bowl where weather conditions are meant to be zero. Before anyone brings up Super Bowls IX and XLI realize that’s freaking two raining games in 44 and both of those super bowls were turnover and penalty filled.
    BTW what happened in the Northeast this past super bowl sunday? Oh it was buried under 4 feet of snow. I realize that doesn’t happen every year but it is a possibility. Why take that chance NFL? What if you have to postpone the game? Throw in the fact that besides football there is the pomp and circumstance that surronds the game which cannot be hampered by weather.
    Meddling Goodell and his greed. What the heck is wrong with just playing in the Rose Bowl every year, oh I know no corporate suites………gizzzzzzzayyyyyyy.

    Looks like even the high and mighty NFL will sell out to the big market.
    As much as I like the idea of a Super Bowl played in the elements, it tarnishes the tradition. I can already here fanboys of teams who lose say, “If tis game wasnt played in the snow……”
    And for the love of god Packer fans, there is no way in hell a SB will come to Lambeau. Your city cant even house enough people for a regular season game. WTF are you smoking if you think anyone would want to go to GB for Super Bowl weekend?
    Chicago, Denver, hell, even KC. At least THOSE cities have the room and ability to host something more than a County Fair.

    Pier
    How many times are you going to accuse me of “yelling insults at women”? Take a day or 2 and get back at me with an insult that doesn’t make you sound like a 12 year old.
    We can all go back and forth on this til we’re blue in the face, but now that it’s official this story will die off pretty quick since the game isn’t for another 4 years. All I’m saying to all the nay-sayers is wait and see. I know you’re all hoping it turns out terribly so you can say I told ya so but I think you’re gonna be pretty disappointed with how well it works out.
    Obv the southern cities are just pissed cuz they won’t get the economic impact of the game that year, but who cares, Tampa will prob get it in 2015 and Miami after that.

    New York has a God given right to do whatever they want to make other kiss their asses.
    This game will be the best ever just because it’s in New York.
    The game itself may really suck,
    but hey, your in New York.
    HEY… I LIVE IN CLEVELAND….
    WHEN IS THE SUPER BOWL COMING HERE?
    WE ARE FURTHER SOUTH THEN NEW YORK !!!!
    This should open up the Super Bowl being available to EVERY team that owns a franchise… because if I owned a team I would sue if it didn’t.
    This is disgusting…. but I assume it was pre ordained before they even built the stadium and we are just now finding out about it.

    1) there are no WalMarts in Manhattan

    I’ve been to Miami. The only time it looked looked better than the ghettos of Rio De Janeiro was after the hurricane. Then you could pretend that all the trash and filth was only there because of the storm. Besides, we all know Miami is where elderly NYers go to die. Gotta love a city where they start serving dinner at 3pm.

    FACT: The perfect place to host is on my beet farm, Schrute Farms outside Honesdale, PA. There’s plenty of seating, table making demonstrations, and some running water. “We can’t be beet”.
    Question: How will you keep out the bears?
    FACT: You cannot keep bears away. No one can. Bears can climb faster than they run. Bears eat people. Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.

    Love this!!!! Bout time we stop catering to these high society types who go to the SB and know nothing about the sport. The only reason it’s usually in a “nice weather” city is for the media and rich folks to vacation and party.

    The Meadowlands are in New Jersey. Not New York/Jersey. Just New Jersey. I don’t know why Florio doesn’t understand this.

  94. jibfest says: May 25, 2010 10:56 PM

    People want to go to the Superbowl because of their team; spend a week in a city with goings-on right around the stadium. I’m sure the idea of getting a tight fade in the East Rutherford area may be appealing to some, I would rather go to sunny local bars. I want to get a cab right down the road, not drive over to NJ from NYC.

    Don’t know what to say for a change. Hope I get 3-0 on the boards.

    The elderly come down to Florida, not to die, but that’s when they have enough money to leave that wasteland and come to a state that is 100x better. There are nothing but a bunch of scrub trash living in New York. It’s people like you and the rest of the slimy New Yorkers that makes everyone else not able to tolerate you ignorant phucks. Go pickpocket a grandma because that’s the type of scum you are. Also, while your at it go get castrated so the world doesn’t have to deal with another imbosol like you.

    Don’t forget. We still have two more years of global warming to prepare for this game at the Meadowlands. Who knows? It might be in the mid-70’s by then.

    Super Bowl in cold weather = awesome!

    The Super Bowl is more than a game, its an event for a weekend.
    To say Green Bay should have one based on tradition is retarded.
    The city cant even house the people who travel for a regular season game, on top of it, there is NOTHING else there.
    Period.

    I sit next to tougher FEMALES in section 316 of the Meadowlands than some of you vaginas.
    Pathetic.
    Of course the Superbowl should be played here.
    We sit through 3 months of pure hell weather.
    Cold weather team, warm weather team my ass.
    WHY ARE YOU SUCH A PUSSY?!

  103. this class sucks says: May 27, 2010 4:18 AM

    This is so stupid. Its all about the fans, and clearly the fans (as if PFT is a fair evaluation) don’t want a cold weather Super Bowl. I hope the final score is 3-0 (49ers win!).

  104. newcaymanS says: May 28, 2010 1:50 PM

    Whats the big deal? The “Greatest Game Ever Played” (Colts/Giants NFL Title game) was played at freakin’ Yankee Stadium and is considered to be the birth of Football as our true national past time. It was cold the day Unitas gave to Ameche! Toughen up people. Dallas in Feb = cold, Indy in Feb = cold, it’s NYC, so it being outdoors means nothing. I bet anything this will be a HUGE SUCCESS.
