So with the Florida Speaker of the House blocking a bill that would have given citizens of Miami-Dade County the ability to vote on public funding of upgrades to Sun Life Stadium, there won’t be any Super Bowls in Miami, right?
That may not be the case.
Dolphins CEO Mike Dee explained on Monday’s PFT Live that the host committee will be submitting final bids on Wednesday for Super Bowl L and Super Bowl LI, which will be awarded by owners during their May 21 meeting. While it’s believed to be unlikely that Miami will win the showdown with San Francisco for Super Bowl L or the next round with Houston for Super Bowl LI absent a renovation to Sun Life Stadium, Miami can still get the attention of the owners with the one inorganic object that talks: Money.
By tweaking the proposal to put even more money in the pockets of the league’s owners, South Florida could make enough of them forget about the fact that the upgrades won’t happen.
In three weeks, we’ll know the answer. You’ll know the answer to every question I posed to Dee much sooner than that if you watch the video of his visit to PFT Live.This video is no longer available. Click here to watch more NBC Sports videos!
