Super Bowl XLVIII presentations begin

As the football-watching world awaits the apparently inevitable selection of New York/New Jersey as the location of the February 2014 Super Bowl, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello has said on his Twitter account that the final presentations have begun.

Each of the three finalists have 15 minutes, and New York leads off.  Tampa Bay and South Florida apparently shouldn’t bother.

The move widely is believed to be a fait accompli, with New York expected to get the nod.

The folks in New York are sufficiently confident that NFL Network’s Super Bowl selection show will be streaming on the Giants’ website — and not on the websites of the Buccaneers or the Dolphins.

Curiously, the event isn’t streaming on the Jets’ website, either.  Maybe they lost the coin flip.

  1. This is just one more step in Goodell’s process of taking the Superbowl to London

  2. “The folks in New York are sufficient confident that NFL Network’s Super Bowl selection show will be streaming on the Giants’ website — and not on the websites of the Buccaneers or the Dolphins.”

    What?

  3. this is good news, weather aside. if its cold, then its cold. theyre professional football players, they can deal. the market will be enormous. not only is the new meadowlands much bigger than raymond james and joe robbie, i mean dolphins, i mean landshark, i mean sunlife stadium. i guarantee the money brought in will be enough that goodell wont have to fine desean jackson for wearing white soled shoes or chad ocho for wearing a black chin strap. you get what im saying? THE NFL IS BROKE AND THIS SUPERBOWL WILL MAKE UP FOR THAT.

  4. “THE NFL IS BROKE AND THIS SUPERBOWL WILL MAKE UP FOR THAT.”
    This get my nod for dumbest post yet.

  5. I hope that the Giants and Jets get this Super Bowl so it can misserably fail. The logistics in the cold weather alone should make for an intersting nightmare. Add on the thousands in tourist traffic that will try to make it across the tunnel. Every one will be late for everything and parking will be impossible. God how i love the sound of this.****AS FLORIO SAID THIS MORNING ON THE RADIO “THE SUPER BOWL SHOULD BE IN MIAMI EVERY YEAR” *****

  6. I’ll wager that within 2 hrs after NY/NJ is awarded the Super Bowl, that Rex Ryan guarantees his team will be playing in it.

  7. $5 on Washington winning it and surprising everyone — Danny let the cat out of the bag!

  8. They should just put x chips in a bag for each city like they do in the NBA and have someone we all trust, like Bill Clinton, pull out the winner.

  9. @Hooby I’m pretty sure the uniform fines aren’t the league’s poor attempt at fundraising, lol. And I don’t care if Chad forgets his chin strap, as long as he leaves his stinking shirt ON!

  10. NY leads off? Cue the Sinatra soundtrack.
    Serious question: All those concerned about the potential cold weather for a New Jersey Super Bowl… does the current design of the new Jets Stadium lend itself to adding a retractable roof in the next four years, or is that not even possible?

  11. Booby – They add 20,000 seats to Jesse James Stadium in the end zones making the seating capacity comparable if not more than New Giants stadium.
    Dead Skins stadium has 10,000 more seats than NJ – so following your logic – they should get the big game B4 NJ – since you’re talking seating capacity.

  12. I’ll bet that this is going to come up in the CBA. The NFL has the players right where they want them now.
    Goodell: “Oh, you all want more money? Fine, then the Pro Bowl will be played in the Super Bowl city every year. See you in cold rainy Jersey in 2014, superstars.”
    De Smith: “I now put the chance of a strike at negative 140%.”
