At first, we heard the New York Super Bowl was a “one-time” exception to the usual warm weather drills.
Now it sounds like the league is open to possibly playing in an undomed cold weather stadium in the future. First, the NFL wants to see how New York goes.
Commissioner Roger Goodell spoke at the commencement ceremonies of UMass-Lowell (he was introduced by Patriots owner Robert Kraft), and said after the speech that the success of the New York experiment will determine if future wintry Super Bowls are possible.
That means that the cold weather Super Bowl issue will essentially be tabled for the next three years and the 2015, 2016, and 2017 Super Bowls should be played in warm weather or indoors.
