Blizzard highlights looming game of Super Bowl roulette

ny_blizzard_06 AP

When the NFL was forced to move from Sunday to Tuesday a prime-time game between the Vikings and Eagles due to a looming blizzard in Philadelphia, we asked the NFL whether there were any second thoughts about hosting a Super Bowl in an open-air New Jersey stadium.

We are the ultimate reality show,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said at the time.

He’s right.  And the blizzard bearing down on the region demonstrates how real it could be.

Despite the huffing and puffing from the powers-that-be regarding the plans for Super Bowl XLVIII, there’s no way to know whether another blizzard will hit the region on game day until the game approaches.  And while that will create plenty of additional interest as February 2, 2014 approaches, the end result could be a lot worse than a 34-minute power outage.

Really, if the blizzard that hit Philly in late December 2010 was enough to bump a regular-season game by two days, what will a direct hit from a major winter storm do to the league’s annual marquee event?

Chances are it will be fine.  By why take an avoidable risk?

In fairness to the league, all has gone mostly well before, via the quid pro quo Super Bowls awarded when new stadiums were built in Minneapolis, Indianapolis, and Detroit (twice).  But those stadiums are all covered.  And eventually, if the NFL keeps staging Super Bowls in cold-weather cities, a blizzard will hit the host city on the day of the game.

    Yeah you let them postpone the Super bowl to a tuesday Greg and you’ll see how real it will get.

  2. jimbo75025 says: Feb 7, 2013 9:07 PM

    Well,, the Southern equivalent of a blizzard (ice storms) have certainly curtailed activitives in Dallas in 2011 and Atlanta in 2000-maybe others. The game has hone on though.

    I hope Centurylink in Seattle can host an super bowl then. At least Seattle doesn’t get drastic whether conditions. Might rain but hardly ever snows any real amount and doesn’t get too cold.

    Either keep it in doors or warms cities or open it to all newer nice stadiums. A snow superbowl is stupid!

    a blizzard isn’t that common, but a major snowstorm is another story.

  12. igotgamenj says: Feb 7, 2013 9:15 PM

    When we were young guys playing tackle football on the first snowfall of the year would be a must…That would be the Greatest thing to happen if there was a Snow Storm the day of the Super Bowl..

  13. rpiotr01 says: Feb 7, 2013 9:15 PM

    Going to be 6 little inches of snow in NYC, big deal. Get over it, I think the SB next year is going to be pretty cool being outdoors.

  14. paulsmith107 says: Feb 7, 2013 9:17 PM

    The superbowl being in jersey is a disaster. I’m from jersey born and raised and I am of the belief that two teams should play in as close to a perfect environment as possible. This is not going to be fun to watch when the wind is blowing at 30 miles an hour and its ice cold out and possibly raining. It’s a joke. The only reason it’s in JERSEY( not New York) is because marra and goodell are buddies. I mean Baltimore has a way better stadium Philly Pitt Green Bay has more tradition its gotta be there. It’s not like there is anything to do besides go to Times Square which isn’t even in the same state as the stadium

  15. jonevans83 says: Feb 7, 2013 9:18 PM

    yes, we know you are against a superbowl in Jersey, but too bad.

  16. nyyjetsknicks says: Feb 7, 2013 9:20 PM

    Wasn’t there an ice storm in Dallas a few years ago with no trucks to help? If there is a blizzard next year, every plow, sand/salt truck in a 100 mile radius of NYC will be used.

    This is also the first big storm in 2 years. Winter just didn’t show up last year. Ask any Snowboards/skier they’ll tell you.

  17. moerawn says: Feb 7, 2013 9:20 PM

    Oh, waahh. It’s an outdoor game. Play it, if it snows so much the better.

  18. chattanola says: Feb 7, 2013 9:21 PM

    I hoping someone asks what the contingency plans are, 150,000 visitors will be there, surely they have a contingency plan…

    No one cares what you want. Don’t buy a ticket then. I guarentee itll still be sold out without you.

  31. 50milessouthofdetroit says: Feb 7, 2013 9:46 PM

    From what i remember, there was a pretty big snowstorm on the morning of Super Bowl XVI in Pontiac, MI. i believe it was even featured in the highlight video

  32. edithpiaf51 says: Feb 7, 2013 9:47 PM

    The idea of playing football in a temperature controlled dome on a rug known as astroturf is hardly football

  33. hoosierdore says: Feb 7, 2013 9:47 PM

    The only people who are going to care are the media and the rich people who aren’t real fans. The Ravens played in Denver and Foxboro just to get to the Super Bowl. If a playoff game can be in zero degree weather, so should the Super Bowl.

  34. maddbearfan says: Feb 7, 2013 9:49 PM

    I think it should be held at New Orleans every other year…they know how to party. Or build a stadium in Vegas just for the SB. You can’t tell me these owners don’t have the cash to kick in.

  35. paulsmith107 says: Feb 7, 2013 9:51 PM

    It’s not just any football game it’s the superbowl. Snow for the superbowl is one thing for those idiots who know nothing about the meadowlands the wind is what the problem will be there is nothing cool about watching teams battle to a 17-10 lame game because one team can’t throw for half the game. For this idiots talking about ice storms in Dallas and Atlanta well those stadiums are indoors and didn’t effect the game

  36. steelfla says: Feb 7, 2013 9:51 PM

    So who cares if it’s too cold for the fat cats and media? Maybe the seats will be filled with rank and file average fans instead of corporate sponsors and wine drinkers who watch one football game a year.And those of us at home love to watch bad weather games on TV.

  37. sdsockers says: Feb 7, 2013 9:52 PM

    Plenty of semi-important people (S.I.’s Peter King, ESPN’s Chris Berman, etc.) have said before that the Super Bowl should be held in San Diego every single year. Best weather always, fabulous beaches, lots of hotels, tons of fun touristy things, a natural grass field (in perfect condition) and sun at game time.
    I’m sure I won’t be the only one laughing my guacamole off when there’s a blizzard in New Jersey next year at game time.

  39. JohnnyRyde says: Feb 7, 2013 10:00 PM

    Roulette?

    The odds of a snowstorm / blizzard during a Super Bowl in a northern city are pretty much identical to the odds of a snowstorm / blizzard during an NFC / AFC Championship game held in a northern city the two weeks before the Super Bowl. Not only is that likely… it’s happened. And it’s resulted in some of the most memorable games in NFL history.

    Let it snow. Or not. Just play the game.

  40. bigbluefan1 says: Feb 7, 2013 10:04 PM

    Love it
    Let it snow all you fair weather fans stay home the real fans will fill the place.

    If you can play the super bowl in the snow why should you play any game all season in bad weather?

    What if Tampa has to play a game in the winter in Green Bay what if Tampa not winning keeps them out of the playoffs?

    This is the first storm in 2 years and its only 8″ on Friday night so even if it happened the friday before the Super Bowl no one would see a flake on the ground come game day

    It will not matter next year any how as Eli and Payton are both used to cold weather

    Manning Bowl 2014 !!!!!!!

  41. gitlin1 says: Feb 7, 2013 10:05 PM

    Blizzard? Do your homework. It was only 4 inches max. People were going to pass driving in the snow for a 4:00 December game so the Eagles called it. The Eagles organization was only worried about the concession sales for a game most people were going to stay home for. Game should have been played on time.

  42. icemanbs69 says: Feb 7, 2013 10:06 PM

    Anyone who complains about it possibly snowing during a Superbowl, obviously never played a down in their life.

  43. buckybadger says: Feb 7, 2013 10:06 PM

    Bring it to Denver. More than likely the weather will be between 55 and 60 and if its snows it won’t be bone chilling freezing but a nice snow for a great atmosphere. It would be a sunny week for the visitors with no more than a day maybe two of snow. Perfect city for a SB.

    First cold-weather Super Bowl–New York. Purely coincidentally, home field of Goodell’s best friend among the owners.

    Second cold-weather Super Bowl?–I predict New England. Purely coincidentally, home field of Goodell’s other huge backer.

  45. nejerseygirl says: Feb 7, 2013 10:14 PM

    If you don’t want to sit in the snow, don’t go to the Super Bowl.

    NYC and the surrounding area doesn’t usually get pounded with snow. But quite frankly, snow games are more interesting and fun anyway.

    At least they won’t be playing on astroturf.

  46. abninf says: Feb 7, 2013 10:22 PM

    Ohh, it might snow. What we’re seeing is the wussification of America. Football should be played in the elements.

  47. autumnritual says: Feb 7, 2013 10:24 PM

    In sunny California, an earthquake delayed the World Series for a week. Some snow for a football game? Come on!

  48. joerevs300 says: Feb 7, 2013 10:32 PM

    That’s a by-product of too many pansies and too much greed in this era of professional sports.

    Was “The Ice Bowl” not one of the most famous games in NFL history?

    If this is a problem, then make it mandatory for every NFL franchise to play in a dome. That way, no elements.

    Otherwise, the NFL needs to get with the program and rotate the Super Bowl across all 32 franchises.

    Heaven knows that’s the only way the Lions, Jaguars, Browns and Texans (HAHA) are ever going to sniff a SB.

  51. wlubake says: Feb 7, 2013 11:32 PM

    Just like all the complaining in Dallas two years ago, the loudest group is the media who are ticked that they don’t get a nice tropical working vacation for the Super Bowl.

    If someone is buying a ticket to the Super Bowl next year, they are doing so with the knowledge that it is outdoors and could snow. There is no room to complain if it does.

  52. nomoreseasontix says: Feb 7, 2013 11:58 PM

    All things considered, it really doesn’t matter that much. If it happens, it’ll just be something else that gets talked about.
    The world will keep spinning…

  53. daknight93 says: Feb 8, 2013 12:23 AM

    only northern and eastcoast football fans enjoy snow blizzards and wild elements…I will not spend 5K on a super bowl ticket to watch a game in the blizzard and freeze my butt off in the stands…I need a warm suite in the stadium to watch the game like the owners do..fans who luv this kind of weather are crazy to spend 3-5k on a ticket shivering all game long

  54. smithopher says: Feb 8, 2013 12:48 AM

    Being from jersey myself, the whole “it’s not even in NY” thing just shows who’s never been there. You look east from the stadium and manhattan is right there, only a few miles away. It’s the ny giants and jets, not ny state. Theyre nyc teams. It’s still in the New York metropolitan area, anyone who lives around here understands it. As for the game being played there, it’s rolling the dice with the weather. Is it wrong? I don’t think so… It’s the biggest sports market in the country and a stadium capable of hosting the game. They may have bad weather but I also remember days last year where we had insanely warm weather throughout the winter. Who knows what’s going to happen. I’m a fan of the idea of playing a Super Bowl in Green Bay though, probably the most historic football stadium, at least of all still built. Especially after candlestick gets demolished.

  55. 15starr says: Feb 8, 2013 12:49 AM

    It will be a big deal if two southern teams make it and all the fans have to come and freeze in 20 degree weather. If two northern teams make it 20 degree weather is not cold. If one southern team and one northern team makes it, it will be the major storyline. “How is the warm weather team going to hold up?”

  56. comebackid says: Feb 8, 2013 12:55 AM

    This is football. Now they have sushi and gluten free garbage when u was a kid u had a cold hot dog and a coke and you were living the dream.

  57. dominicthedonkey says: Feb 8, 2013 1:03 AM

    Only wimps who didn’t play the game are whining. The championship games are played in the snow, fog, & rain. I don’t hear anyone complaining about that! The players are men and will deal with it.

  58. ravenmuscle says: Feb 8, 2013 1:08 AM

    The Ravens will win this one AGAIN…blizzard or no blizzard.

  59. aneaglesfan says: Feb 8, 2013 1:27 AM

    It really is sad that they will put a superbowl in the giants stadium (which is in the middle of no where with one small access road in and out) or in a city in the north with a dome but would not honor philly when they got a new stadium which has been a recent criteria to host the superbowl (with exception to new orleans which is also a bad place to have it.) If the nfl wants a picturesque place to have the super bowl and stop the bs favoritism why not have the super bowl in hawaii yearly and move the probowl to different cities and make it that all cities must host it once before it can be repeated.

  60. st0n3r78 says: Feb 8, 2013 1:39 AM

    If teams are forced to play through the elements to get to the Super Bowl, than they should sure as hell play through those same conditions. Im sick of the pampering in perfect weather Super Bowls because they can charge $$$$ for ticket prices and such.. You already have the Pro Bowl in perfect weather and thats enough.

  61. commonsensedude says: Feb 8, 2013 1:47 AM

    Football wasn’t designed to be played indoors on a carpet.

    70k may be freezing, but I’m sure they’ll love it no matter what. The other 200 million plus will be safely cozy on a sofa.

  63. rabbdogg says: Feb 8, 2013 2:00 AM

    only people that want a snowy Superbowl are people who’s teams are not as good as others and need a fluky snow filled Superbowl to have a better chance to win…your wrs are too fast …we need it to be slushy so they slip down…your defense is too good ..we need them slipping and sliding so they dont hit so hard…we need your great athletes to have zero footing so the game can look like it’s the 1930’s again..when ANYBODY could play..you know boring not exciting and slow..in other words how the game was so-called “meant to be played”..in the minds of the slow and unathletic .

  64. joetoronto says: Feb 8, 2013 4:21 AM

    “Chances are it will be fine. By why take an avoidable risk?”

    Ultimately, that’s the real question, the only question that matters.

    It doesn’t make any sense to me to gamble on the big game, no sense at all.

  65. nickster31 says: Feb 8, 2013 5:34 AM

    The NFL gave them the game to get the new stadium built. The real issue, at least in my opinion is that there are teams that have a chance every 5-10 years to host a Super Bowl (Miami, Arizona, New Orleans), while other teams with amazing tradition (Pittsburgh, Green Bay, Chicago) will NEVER get the chance to host a game. Make it fair. Rotate the game every year in each of the NFL cities. Snow, rain or whatever.

    Mike, you keep overlooking the best part of a cold weather Super Bowl: many of the corporate free ticket “fans of football” will stay home and leave more tickets for the real die hard fans. I don’t think too many Packer fans or even Dolphin fans would mind sitting in an ice bowl, in the snow to see THEIR team compete.

  70. westpalmneil says: Feb 8, 2013 8:08 AM

    The NJ Superbowl shows idiocy because the NFL told Miami, if the city wants any more Superbowls, they better build a cover over the stadium (in case it rains like it did when the Colts won in 2007.) Where’s the logic when you weigh NJ vs Miami? Does anyone even remember that it rained during that Superbowl in Miami? That won’t be said if there’s a snowstorm the week of the Superbowl in 2014.

  71. steviethewiz says: Feb 8, 2013 8:13 AM

    BLIZZARD????? What the hell – it’s going to be like 10 to 14 inches of snow in NYC – all you NANCY”S better have enough supplies to ride that out as I’ll guess that should keep you off the roads for about 10 HOURS…………Oh my.

  75. keepyerstickontheice says: Feb 8, 2013 8:19 AM

    I hope it snows. Keep all the golf clappers and drink sippers at home.

  76. rboyett says: Feb 8, 2013 8:35 AM

    New York and New Jersey are much better suited to handle adverse weather than Atlanta or Dallas are. You have to move equipment to southern cities if you are anticipating any sort of frozen precipitation whereas any Northern Atlantic state is going to have that equipment on hand at any time in the year.

    The real risk is if that precipitation is so much that it overwhelms the infrastructure and the equipment. Also, the Governors and Mayors of these areas have to keep the rest of the city running as best they can during these situations. How many resources will they have to pull from other areas to guarantee the Super Bowl can go on?

    At least they’ll have a plan. Atlanta and Dallas certainly didn’t.

  77. gamds says: Feb 8, 2013 9:43 AM

    Why does the Superbowl have to be in an NFL city? Many college stadiums are larger and nicer than NFL stadiums, and are in great areas that would not only be nice to visit, but it would bring the NFL to areas that may not get to see it live. I’m tired of hearing all the old retread stadium names every year, just because it’s warm or domed.

  78. Beezo-Doo-doo-Zippity-Bop-bop-bop says: Feb 8, 2013 9:51 AM

  79. gbatap says: Feb 8, 2013 10:15 AM

    They reneg on giving the SB to Kansas City because of possible weather issues and then they give it to New York and are now just realizing that weather is an issue? Dumb.

    PS. It was 50-60 degrees this week in Kansas City. Morons.

  80. samphilvista82 says: Feb 8, 2013 10:16 AM

    Start the season in the third week of September. Have the Super Bowl fall on the Sunday before President’s Day. Everyone has the next day off as a holiday to recover from the party the night before, and if the Super Bowl is in a cold weather city and a storm hits, you have a built in one-day delay to hold it the following day and ratings would still be maximized as it isn’t a work day.

  81. gadzod says: Feb 8, 2013 10:54 AM

    At least with it being cold, the teams will be playing in weather they’ve played all year long. Not to mention an average fan can attend the game. Maybe the cold weather and snow will keep nosebleeds from being $1,300 on the secondary market, since the 1st one is nearly impossible to get.

  82. gus1779 says: Feb 8, 2013 11:28 AM

    “Football is meant to be played in the cold! In the elements!” That from fans who will watch at home from their recliner and who will berate a db for slipping on the ice and giving up a winning touchdown, which somehow has a direct impact on the fans’ quality of life. That sounds about right.

    Also…a Super Bowl in Green Bay?! Are you people nuts? When 3/4 of the crowd comes from within the state and drives to the stadium on gameday and it’s still nearly impossible for the other 1/4 to find a room, how do you expect to accommodate 10 times the fans for Super Bowl week?

  83. georgiavol91 says: Feb 8, 2013 11:29 AM

    This is a dumb idea. Most players don’t want to play in snow and ice, as it’s much easier to get hurt. And I don’t look forward to a riveting 10-7 final game score.

    This is a classic money grab by the league, who cares little about player safety and everything about money. On the humor side of things, it would have been fun watching Beyonce shaking her posterior in -10 degree weather.

    only northern and eastcoast football fans enjoy snow blizzards and wild elements…I will not spend 5K on a super bowl ticket to watch a game in the blizzard and freeze my butt off in the stands…I need a warm suite in the stadium to watch the game like the owners do..fans who luv this kind of weather are crazy to spend 3-5k on a ticket shivering all game long

    Then don’t go to the game. Simple. And we’re not crazy.. we enjoy football the way it should be played.

    I’ll laugh hysterically if it’s 60 degrees and sunny on the day of the big game.

    Who ever wins the SB should get to host the next year. Next one should be in Baltimore.
    If team wins twice, second time game will be in their home stadium.

    Right. At the end of the day all of these millionaires running into each other with helmets is nothing more than a television show. I’m sure it will be fine with or without snow.

    If the Grey Cup can be played in bad winter weather, so can the Super Bowl.

    Solution:

    Have Al Gore sing the Star Spangled Banner or perform at half time. Then it’ll be 65 and sunny.

    After all, he did write it.

    since you clearly need it, here’s some advice on visiting ny metro. skip times square. it is the least valuable spot to visit (after 4 minutes anyway). then you’re free to concentrate your time and energy on some of the billion other choices.
    unless of course you’re on a quest to visit wax museums in as many cities as possible, then feel free.

    It really is sad that they will put a superbowl in the giants stadium (which is in the middle of no where with one small access road in and out)

    In the spirit of assisting those with some cerebral issues, “Giants” Stadium is now Met Life Stadium, approximately 5 miles from the most expensive real estate in the world. I imagine one would find someting to do in New York City.
    No wonder they define a Philadelphia Weekend is packing your bags as soon as you arrive!
