    How big our Cardinals 2006 tailgate was, I would love to see it. We have a lot of fans in that area, I believe some of those lots are private (or homes right across the street) and they can't stop you from tailgatting on private lots (then again, Meck77 says "Sure they can!")

    Tickets will be expensive just because fans will want to spend SB weekend in good weather not the **** they are putting out this season. You can get a ticket on STUBHUB for $2500. I was figuring $4k minimum. Not a fun trip and everything is ultra expensive there anyways. Add the SB and those businesses will be jacking up the price sky high.

      Look, if you want to try to derail every post or thread I make, go ahead. But in this thread, at least, YOU'RE the one raising the overall level of noise, not me.

      The OP is a legitimate question, particularly since Mile High is an open-air stadium in a cold climate. And not that long ago, it was a new stadium. Yet apparently this didn't seem to matter to the NFL when it came to awarding Super Bowl venues.

      The deck is stacked.

          Drudge Report recently linked to an article last week about the non-profit status of the NFL (yep, it's officially a Not-For-Profit 501 c 6 organization). The commish make $29.5 million per year, which is more than the CEO's of Ford, Heinz, Goldman Sachs and FedEx.

          As a non-profit org, the NFL is required by law to donate a certain amount of money each year to "charities". In 2012, total donations amounted to a paltry $2.3 million, of which $2.1 million went to the NFL's own Hall of Fame!

          I wouldn't be in the least surprised if the Commish ended up with a sweetheart deal on a Park Avenue apartment right after the "vote" for NYC to host SB 48.

            Go to the Broncos 8th next year in AZ

              A league exec basically said the publicity and reality show it makes for is why an open aired cold SB WILL HAPPEN AGAIN.

                As long as the only variables for the game are cold weather and some wind.

                But if there's another big snowstorm, all bets are off. It will be an epic fail on the part of the NFL.

                  more and more viewership is not a fail. The butts in the seats of the actual game mean nil.

                  An epic snowstore might benefit the N$FL

                    If I was commissioner:

                    1) increase SB tickets to both teams by 10% minimum
                    2) decrease tickets to all other teams and base it on record. The worst your record, the less tickets you get. Make it the the Conference Championship, you keep your same allotment.
                    3) Have SB only in Miami, New Orleans, Dallas/Houston (can be persuaded to can the whole Texas state), Phoenix, San Diego (only when they do some improvements to stadium).
                    4) Let LA host SB and Pro Bowl even though they have no team.
                    5) Bring back tailgatting in a smaller section and RV, 3 day passes, where stadiums can accept it. Does not matter if you have tickets or not but those that do get first priority.
                    6) Have some preseason games at neutral sites in the states or possibly Canada. This will offset some cost to season ticket holders that pay full price for scrubs.
                    oh hey on that #2 bit, also decrease tickets to anyone on the NE Patriots to Zero. Because they are assholes and they cheat. and also **** them.

                    As for why they can get away with saying no to Denver, they will always use the altitude as a reason to deny too, not just the cold.

                      No this is a bad idea period.

                      We want to see the very best game possible. That means the weather not

                      playing any role in it.


                      I was also going to ask this question but the douches around here

                      would F it up.

                      But no this weather affecting the game is BS.

                        Why would you care on #2? Those hundreds of tickets that Raiders get (or Denver) will never go to you unless you are a sponsor or big wig inside Dove Valley. I have never heard of the Broncos giving SB tickets to a season ticket holder that Denver was not actually in the Super Bowl.

                          It's all about advertising revenue.

                          Advertisers will be pissed off big time if this game isn't played on Sunday as planned. I guarantee you there are clauses in the TV ads for this game that will significantly reduce the cost of Budweiser and Audi and Ford and Victoria's Secret ads if the game is not played on a Sunday.

                          Most of the big money in the NFL comes from TV revenue (which itself comes from ad revenue).

                            I don't care about advertisers revenue. I care about watching the game.

                              I think a manned mission to deep space or even just the Moon happens before another Cold weather city gets the SB which is a shame because I think Denver would be a great place to have one.

                                Amazingly I don't ****ing care. I was kidding and also anytime I can express my hatred of the Patriots it tends to go there. but whatever. no point in giving a **** anymore.
