Dungy weighs in against New York Super Bowl, inconsistent overtime

Count Super Bowl-winning coach Tony Dungy among those who don’t like the idea of playing the Super Bowl in the cold.

“You get to a Super Bowl and you want to put your best foot forward,” Dungy said today on The Dan Patrick Show. “If you win the game or you lose the game you don’t want it to be because of weather conditions.”

Dungy has first-hand experience dealing with weather at the Super Bowl. The only Super Bowl that has been played in significant rain was Super Bowl XLI, which Dungy’s Colts won.

“We dealt with some rain in Miami and it happens — it’s something coaches deal with — but I just think New York in February, you know there’s going to be some weather issues.”

Dungy also questioned the league’s decision not to vote on modifying overtime for the regular season, as it has already done for the playoffs.

“If it’s a bad rule in the regular season it’s a bad rule in the playoffs,” Dungy said. “I, for one, would not want to have the first time I had to make those decisions as a coach be in a playoff game or possibly the Super Bowl.”

    I wish the owners were as smart as Dungy is.

  2. It puts the lotion on the skin says: May 26, 2010 11:45 AM

    Translation:
    “When I coached a team that relied heavily on the artificial surface, and perfect playing conditions of the Dome, we got our asses kicked every time we had to travel to New England in January. I would hate to see a Dome team, not to name any names Indy, lose a SB because they are matched up against a cold weather, outdoor stadium team…”

  3. HarrisonHits says: May 26, 2010 11:48 AM

    Oh geeze St Dungy speaketh.
    “If you win the game or you lose the game you don’t want it to be because of weather conditions.”
    What a moronic statement as the weather effects each side equally and you don’t lose a game because of it.

  4. Rick says: May 26, 2010 11:53 AM

    Don’t worry Tony Bill Polian will have the rules changed if they affect the Colts

  5. mrmnikon0921 says: May 26, 2010 12:06 PM

    You don’t win or lose because of the weather… Both teams are playing in the same weather. It’s just a lame excuse!

  6. Kris says: May 26, 2010 12:11 PM

    I don’t make too much of this from someone that consistently lost to the Patriots in cold weather conditions.

  7. EverybodyGotAIDS says: May 26, 2010 12:14 PM

    They also can’t play the superbowl during the 3rd week of the month because Peyton will have cramps.
    Polian, make it so.

  8. JuicyMelon says: May 26, 2010 12:14 PM

    Although I agree with the outdoor Super Bowl, I understand what Dungy is saying. I just don’t agree that the game should always be perfect conditions. If a team loses because of the weather, then they lost! No one said that about Green Bay losing to the Giants in the NFC Championship, it it what it is.
    The overtime thing needs to be fixed. If you are going to do it in the playoffs, why not in the regular season?
    Makes absolutely no sense to me.

  9. damnitall says: May 26, 2010 12:15 PM

    Dungy says “If you win the game or you lose the game you don’t want it to be because of weather conditions.”
    So you don’t want the win from Miami.
    Dungy says “If it’s a bad rule in the regular season it’s a bad rule in the playoffs,”
    So it’s OK to have a Super Bowl end in a tie after completion of the overtime quarter.
    Was this guy sober when he gave this interview?

  10. seaner44 says: May 26, 2010 12:15 PM

    dont’ both teams have to play in the same stadium? i think it effects them equally. if your stadium is up to date enough you should have a chance at hosting the superbowl.

  11. Bu-Tang Clan says: May 26, 2010 12:17 PM

    For the fans warm weather is better and for nfl in general more money to be generated. This is ridiculous and the will flop and it’ll never happen again. Who would like to come to Miami where its 95 degrees in december?

  12. Ravens634 says: May 26, 2010 12:19 PM

    so its fair for teams that play in cold weather to go to a dome and play?

  13. rider24 says: May 26, 2010 12:21 PM

    This from a guy who coached in Flordia and a Dome

  14. robert ethen says: May 26, 2010 12:23 PM

    Tony is right. No one wants to play or watch the game in really dungy weather.

  15. east96street. says: May 26, 2010 12:24 PM

    When is St. Tony going to step up and volunteer to help rehabilitate Ben? Or his “divine” wisdom only available to Mike Vick? We all saw what an amazing job he did with Vick! Vick still swears he’s the victim. Dungy is right about one rule for the playoffs and one for regular season. Which, of course, supports the argument that the original rule never should have been changed. The new rule will cause constant havoc with the television broadcast restrictions during the regular season. There’s only been about a hundred of us telling you assclowns that since Florio joined hands with Peter King in their sad quest to make themselves feel relevant.

  16. decimatetheweak says: May 26, 2010 12:24 PM

    Sorry Harrison but the statements above prove it doesnt effect each side equally. Look at the Cardinals vs the Patriots. I agree with Dungy but I like the fact that a superbowl champ should be able to play in any condition. Maybe Green Bay/New England will have a slight advantage over say Miami/Tampa/Indy but I think that they should have to prove their worth.

  17. AlanSaysYo says: May 26, 2010 12:27 PM

    It’s been awhile since St Dungy descended from the heavens to opine on the issues of the day. We shall take his word and write it down, and it will be the word of our hearts.

  18. roofles says: May 26, 2010 12:28 PM

    great father, that tony dungy.

  19. Auz says: May 26, 2010 12:29 PM

    If they are going to host a Superbowl in New York (cold weather and all) then they should open the door for other cities that have cooler weather during that time (i.e., Denver).

  20. Jeff says: May 26, 2010 12:30 PM

    I guess now that New York City has bullied its way into a Super Bowl, the NFL will open up the NFL Draft to bids, right?
    Right?
    Right?

  21. footballnut says: May 26, 2010 12:32 PM

    So it’s OK for the weather to potentially affect a conference championship game, but not for the Big Show?
    Get over it, the teams play in the same weather. Why is it fair for an outdoor cold weather team to have to play in a warmer climate or in a dome, but not the other way around?
    I agree with him on the OT item however.

  22. tom coughlin's coat holder says: May 26, 2010 12:34 PM

    what the coach really wanted to say was that new york is filled with too many gay people,right coach?

  23. joelvis72 says: May 26, 2010 12:34 PM

    “Also, I’m still shocked that the Saints beat the Colts, just like I said I’d be in the days leading up to the Super Bowl.”
    Screw Tony.

  24. BroncoBourque says: May 26, 2010 12:36 PM

    The reason the OT rule wasn’t put in for the regular season has nothing to do with it being a bad rule, it is all about the TV contracts and schedule. The new rule for the playoffs will extend the game longer which isn’t as much of a problem in the playoffs because the games are more spread out than they are in the regular season.

  25. The Oven says: May 26, 2010 12:41 PM

    The SB should go to the team with the best record that makes it to the final game. Reward the fans and the city.

  26. Chapnasty2 says: May 26, 2010 12:41 PM

    Who in the hell cares what Tony Dungy thinks? He lost all credibility while supporting Vick and not supporting white troubeled athletes. He is a racist, self motivated, egotisical phony.
    There I said it

  27. cbrianwatkins says: May 26, 2010 12:45 PM

    did Dungy forget that the NFC/AFC Title games are only 14days prior to the Superbowl?
    Should those be moved into Domes?
    I can’t believe football guys are complaining about the weather. When i played football, we prayed for snow or rain

  28. jwill007 says: May 26, 2010 12:47 PM

    and whats funny neither the Jets or Giants are going to play in it…..GUARANTEED!
    LOL

  29. redsquare says: May 26, 2010 12:48 PM

    Suddenly the guy who consistently sat his starters on the bench for the last few weeks of the season is a champion of “putting your best foot forward”? You can do that before the Super Bowl too, Mr. Dungy.
    Judging by the Colts’ postseason performances over the last decade (including their SB win over the most mediocre NFC SB team in ages – Rex Grossmann, for Pete’s sake!), that foot might need to start emerging sooner.

  30. JoeSixPack says: May 26, 2010 12:53 PM

    Dungy should STFU… he’s just speaking from the perspective of a Dome Team coach who can’t compete with tougher cold weather teams.
    The only valid point is from the fans view… pay big bucks for the Super Bowl and risk having a Blizzard ruin the day? That’s not optimal.
    But for the players? STFU and play the game – whether its 90 degrees or 90 below – rain, snow or shine.
    What do they think this is, Baseball? When did football players and coaches become such wimps?

  31. SpankyMcWanky says: May 26, 2010 12:55 PM

    Some of you need to realize something: The Super Bowl is supposed to be as neutral a venue as possible. Yeah, even though it hasn’t happened yet, it is possible for one team to play in the Super Bowl in its own stadium. But in 44 Super Bowls it hasn’t happened yet even though it probably will eventually. Even if a team somehow manages to play in the Super Bowl in its own stadium, is it that realistic that the “home” fanbase will be able to score enough tickets to make a home field advantage? With the cost of the tickets and the availability of the tickets, I really don’t think it would happen (that’s not to say it couldn’t).
    In warm weather stadiums or domes, the advantage to either team is very little no matter if its a cold weather team or a warm weather team. But in a cold weather stadium the cold weather team has a big advantage over the opponent if they don’t play in cold weather. And in this instance, the weather would affect the outcome. I don’t think some of you are taking this into account. The added benefits to a cold weather team playing in a cold weather stadium against a non-cold weather team is MUCH bigger than any 2 teams playing in a dome or in the elements in a warm weather stadium. Some of you might say, “but dome teams play faster in a dome.” Well, why wouldn’t any team play faster in a dome? A dome team playing in a dome is not much of an advantage.
    I just see there being a big chance and a big probability that one team in the Super Bowl WILL have a big advantage over the other if the game is in a cold weather stadium.

  32. Pat Mac says: May 26, 2010 12:56 PM

    Football is football…both teams have to play in the same conditions.
    If Dungy doesn’t like the weather in NJ/NY then tell him not to come to the game.

  33. The Wishbone says: May 26, 2010 12:56 PM

    @ MDS,
    The boring, hypocritical Tony Dungy’s against it? That just makes me more sure that I’m right in being for it.
    He couldn’t beat the Patriots in the snow, and you didn’t think he’d whine about this?! You’re getting more like Florio every day. And that’s sad.

  34. Dryzzt23 says: May 26, 2010 12:58 PM

    WTF Dungy? You played in PITTSBURGH and yet you are afraid of cold weather and snow?
    Miami, Tampa Bay, Phoenix, San Diego all can have rain happen during a Super Bowl
    Come on man – I just lost some respect for Tony Dungy
    I wonder what Jack Lambert’s take is on this subject

    95 in december? Too hot. Also, the people in Miami are disgusting. It’s like New Jersey and Los Angeles had some kind of ugly baby, then had plastic surgery to make the baby uglier.

  36. rykelly06 says: May 26, 2010 1:07 PM

    What is wrong with these people?! Last time I checked, football was a man’s sport, played in the mud, the snow, the fog, the cold. There are no rain delays.
    I think giving an advantage to a high-powered offense with a weak defense for the sake of producing a high-scoring game is BS. Championships used to be won, as the old adage goes, by defenses. The Saints-Colts game proved otherwise. It might not be as exciting, but I think it’s time to reward complete teams and real football fans.
    Also, to talk about less money being generated is BS. The game will still sell out, but it will be filled with real football fans. Plus, what minuscule percentage do you think is actually generated on-premises? It’s all over the TV and it’s the same temperature for me on my couch whether the game is in Miami or Greenland.

  37. borg says: May 26, 2010 1:12 PM

    Will Saint Dungy offer his healing powers to Ben Rapistberger, or are his interventions strictly for black men.

  38. GirthyOne says: May 26, 2010 1:13 PM

    Tony Dungy, along with most of those who are against cold weather games, fail to realize that warm weather also impacts games and teams. A team from the North would most likely play better in the cold. A warm weather or dome team is at an advantage in the warm stadiums.
    Stupid argument.

  39. tryagain says: May 26, 2010 1:15 PM

    i don’t get the whining on this at all. if it’s so so horrible maybe the new york teams should both get spotted 2 wins at the beginning of each season just because they have to play there in such dire conditions.

  40. klecko says: May 26, 2010 1:16 PM

    I agree with Dungy about wanting to put your best foot foward. The fans want to see a great game when their paying crazy money to see the game. On the other hand there were a lot of memorable games played in and because of the elements.

  42. onlineinsite says: May 26, 2010 1:16 PM

    i agree with dungy. it’s like playing the world series in november or in a huge downpour. can the players still play? yeah, sure. but not at an optimal level. and while you can argue that each team has an equal chance, i don’t want to see a critical kick missed because the wind was blowing snow at 30 mph. sure, the games of old were played outside because there were no other options. they also used to play on cheap astro-turf that was frozen and nobody could stand up. personally, i want to see teams play in nice conditions where the weather is not a factor in the outcome. this isn’t the nhl holiday classic (which IS a great idea!).

  43. Wardo says: May 26, 2010 1:19 PM

    Warm weather and dome teams are generally grouped together by division meaning you build your team to win your division.
    If this cold weather superbowl BS keeps up we’ll see some big changes in some teams to get ready for it.

  44. AtlBucc says: May 26, 2010 1:30 PM

    You play this game for the fans and as a fan I don’t want to sit outside in New York in February for the biggest game in professional sports. Its one thing to do it during the regular season but not for the Super Bowl. I do not want to see a sloppy game in the snow, ridiculous.

  45. KG says: May 26, 2010 1:33 PM

    Insert how it is unfair to the black players in the league by Sir Dungy

    _______________
    We’re talking about the Super Bowl. 50-60 degree weather outside or 70 degree temperature in a dome is barely an advantage to anyone. A cold weather team in 25 degree weather with snow has a far bigger advantage over a non-cold weather team than two of any kind of teams playing in 50-something-plus degrees outside.

  47. LeRoy36 says: May 26, 2010 1:45 PM

    By Dungy’s reasoning, it’s also unfair for cold weather, outdoor teams, like the Bears or Packers, to play in extreme heat. 95 in Miami in December – whew!

  48. cloudb2000 says: May 26, 2010 1:46 PM

    Why don’t we just dome up all the stadiums and call it pussball. If kids can play their high school superbowls in the bad weather and the clod I think grown men making millions of dollars can.

  49. buffalokie says: May 26, 2010 1:53 PM

    Someone else had a great idea on another thread a couple of weeks back…
    The winner of this years superbowl is the host of next years superbowl. Simple. No politics.
    Additional motivation – If you win a superbowl, and return to the superbowl the following year, you get to play on your home turf.

  50. Patsfansince73 says: May 26, 2010 1:54 PM

    Wah, wah, wah…. Translation of Dungy’s crap:
    “I’m a pussy and want the rest of the league to be pussies too. ”
    This useless piece of crap (and everyone else who is against this) needs to STFU and understand this is not a game for wimps but for those with a back bone. And I don’t think dome teams should be allowed in the SB because they don’t play real football. Real football is played OUTDOORS in WHATEVER WEATHER is out there. I understand that some areas may need to have a dome because of really nasty weather from time to time, but come on, man up!
    I would love to see EVERY venue host the SB on a rotating basis. It would bring in revenue for some of the places that need fixing up and possibly revitalize areas needing jobs when it is that cities turn.
    Next ones in – Denver, Green Bay, New England, Buffalo, Cleaveland, Cincinnati and so on….. You southern locals have had more than your fair share of them. Screw you and let the real football towns hold the biggest game of the sport.

  51. 4rings+2*!=sixburgh says: May 26, 2010 1:57 PM

    Don’t worry Tony whiny Patriots and Steelers fans will propagate the myth that Bill Polian has ‘had rules changed’ in an attempt to lump the Colts into their same class of ‘special treatment, A-List, big-market’ organizations.
    Enforcement of existing rules != changing rules.

  52. dboom92 says: May 26, 2010 1:59 PM

    Who’s going to be the first coach, player or fan to complain out loud “We lost because it was too cold”.
    Isn’t that like, “We lost because they hit too hard”

    God, you must be one of those dumbasses that equates all of a football team’s prowess to the QB position ALONE.
    The Bears were about DEFENSE and Special Teams that year–Rex carried them through September, then became a liability.
    By the way, 2/3 of the Bears defensive backbone was gone for the S.B. anyway–Tommie Harris and Mike Brown both being out.
    But according to Dungy’s logic, the Bears can just blame the weather for the loss, and really, the Colts didn’t deserve the win.
    Right, Tony Sanctimony?

    Stanley Cup Playoffs = Indoors
    NBA Finals = Indoors
    World Series = Outdoors but sometimes indoors, at its a series where both teams will have a chance to play at home.
    Super Bowl = ONE(1) game.
    The game is to be settled ON the field, not BY the field.
    If a team got there on explosive offense than I want to see them play explosive offense in the game. If they run, I expect to see them run in the game.
    What made the greatest offense of all time(’08 Pats) loss so great?
    The fact that snow or rain prevented them from trying to play their game!!?
    No.
    The Giants had the best defensive line to compete, slow down, and damn near stop that great offense. That made that a great game.
    Had snow or strong winds had prevented the Pats from winning, everyone would have said it was only because the weather and that the better team didn’t win that day.
    P.S. – F**K the Giants and the Patriots. Damn yankee asses

  60. 4rings+2*!=sixburgh says: May 26, 2010 2:31 PM

    The last word on this is _not_ going to be that the Bears lost SB XLI because they were missing part of their ‘defensive backbone’.
    Regardless of what the pundits say, the Colts defense in those playoffs was far superior anyone else. The Bears were just a B- team with great kick return blocking. Forget QB’s, Dominic Rhodes won that game for the Colts.
    I agree though, Tony has become like this ‘National NFL Preacher’ and is wrong on this issue, in addition to many of his predictions.
    I think buffalokie is right on the money!

  61. jnolte01 says: May 26, 2010 2:33 PM

    To anyone that says that cold weather teams gain a distinct advantage by having the Superbowl here, you are flat wrong. No more than a team that plays on FieldTurf vs Grass in their home stadium. If field conditions are THAT big of an issue, the NFL should (and would have) mandated specific playing conditions/fields/stadiums for every team. And if it is that big of a deal, have it a designated Superbowl Stadium that is home to no team.
    Teams used to playing in the snow have an advantage of maybe knowing how to deal with the cold better, but most teams have to play at least one game in cold/crappy conditions anyway so all teams have probably faced this. But just because a cold weather team is used to playing in the snow doesn’t make it any less slippery or tough for them to play in. Physics is physics, and everyones bodies are going to react the same way to conditions. And if you loose the superbowl because you have the shivers well then maybe you don’t deserve to win anyway. This is football, the supposedly TOUGHEST sport after

    I am curious as to how old most of you are who are commenting on all these articles. Virtually no reader offers any valuable insight or productive comments. Post after post brings nothing but unintelligent, radical bitching with no merit to it at all. Honestly, is every reader of this site 15 years old or younger? I am literally baffled at how little sports knowledge the majority of you readers have shown. Think at least for a second about the worthless comments most of you continue to post. I mean seriously, you guys are violently bitching at Tony Dungy, one of the best guys in the sport, because he was probably asked about the superbowl and he responded. The next time you find yourself commenting that nobody cares what someone who gets paid to express their opinion thinks…stop, and think about it.

    ______
    How is the game less “manly” in a dome than in the cold weather? The players are still the big, roided up freaks who hit and play hard. Injuries still happen. Mistakes still happen. Tempers still flare. The Patriots play in 70 degree weather to start the season, and that’s not football?
    The people who think football should only be played (at least that’s how some of you make it seem) in cold weather need to look at the history of the NFL. There’s a reason the league plays when it does. It tries to minimize extreme heat and extreme cold as much as it can. Hell, 75% of the games”cold weather teams” play are in temperatures 50 or above (in the regular season). Now why shouldn’t the most important game of the year not try to meet the standard that the league sets forth to have a reasonably fair game?

  64. VikingFan23 says: May 26, 2010 3:12 PM

    Hey Jnolteo1…. Have you ever driven in the snow? Did you notice that you slipped less as you got more comfortable with it? Got better at it? People who drive in the snow once a year slip a whole lot more than people who drive in it all winter. Correct? Well by your logic, the snow is the same substance, both should slip the same. The point is, you adapt to conditions you are used to and can perform more efficiently in conditions for which you are prepared or used to.

  65. kingmj4891 says: May 26, 2010 3:18 PM

    Dungy is a racist at heart. I never really liked the guy. He was supposed to be a great d guy but his colts defenses where never really that great. He did take the Colts to superbowl XLI and won it but besides that Peyton Manning and Tom Moore are the reason the colts are so good over the last 10 years. On a side note Polian would be wise to move Cladwell soon and get a real coach in there not some dungy want to be cause dungy was and is OVERRATED.

    You lunatics who think weather affects both teams equally need to look up the lifetime records of the Packers and Bills when playing home games in January.
    You are literally insane if you think a NYC super bowl matching, say, Green Bay versus Miami isn’t a huge built-in advantage for the Packers. Get off your high horse and use your heads for a change.
    (But if we are going to agree to play cold-weather super bowls, EVERY team in the league had better get a chance to
    host one on a revolving basis. That includes the Packers, Broncos, Bears, Browns, Bills, Bengals, Seahawks and Patriots).

    On one hand, I do like the fact that NFL is giving the finger to sponsors and corporate interest that rule the game. The Superbowl has turned into anything but a football game with the stupid halftime shows, fireworks, etc. If the weather sucks and they know it’s going to suck, less theatrics will happen.
    Then again, I don’t want to see a 6-3 Superbowl in the snow where there’s been 20 punts and 7 turnovers. If I wanted that, I’d watch the Browns vs. Rams.

    Is anybody else sick of Tony Dungy? Right or wrong, I don’t really care what he has to say. He is like the league guidance counselor.

    Weather is a part of football. Maybe Dungy should become a basketball fan?
    I do want to see a 9-6 Super Bowl. I happen to like defense. I highly prefer that sort of game to a shoot out.
    If you want a shoot out all of the time, maybe you should become a fan of basketball.
    I’m seeing a common theme here.

    Maybe Dungy is still licking his wounds (or making excuses) from all the times Tampa Bay was supposed to be headed to a Super Bowl, only to lose in places like Philadelphia and Green Bay in the playoffs.

    I agree with you. I think those low scoring games are much more exciting because any one play could break it open. Any ONE play could help decide the game. Those 100-99 Arena League games are boring as chit to me. Then again I like roller coasters and not video games.
    I HATE that smashmouth football is waning in favor of this shotgun passing BS . I hate even more that my team is one of the worst examples of it (Pats).
