Why are they supposed to be played in a warm place?

So you can enjoy your vacation in addition to the game. How many people would hang out all day in the cold at the NFL Experience? Why would you "invite" weather to play a role in the biggest game of the year? Who wouldn't want to stay an extra few days in a nice place and go to the beach, Disney, or other local attractions? No offence intended, but been to NYC once and it was cool to see but WILL NEVER GO BACK. Just another dirty city with way too many people. It I can't jump in my car and drive 30 miles in 30 min., not 3 blocks in 30 min., I want nothing to do with it.

The NFL has so much money they will just change the weather. Shouldn't be a problem.

Sorry TxsRiverRat but your 49ers already won their Superbowl a few weeks ago. The road to NY goes thru Seattle and we know what happens to the 49ers there.

Just read the NFL changed their policy for the NYC Bowl. Evidently, there is a rule that the historical average temp. for the game week MUST be 50 degrees or warmer. So, there is the reason why "the game has to be played in warm places". I am not the only one who thinks this is a bad idea, the Rules actually state so.

Hmmm. I thought these were men playing. Can they not handle the cold temps?

I know that if I was ever going to spend $1,000+ for a ticket and another $1,000/night for a hotel room, and endure several hours sitting in traffic and standing in lines to get to the game, and shell out $10 for 12 oz. of flat beer in a plastic cup...

the least they could do is supply some nice weather!

Imagine the increase of beer sales if the game gets changed to an alternate date.
