We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Season? Do you like that freezing weather will affect the game and maybe the outcome?

If you're going to have playoffs in any temperature, why not the Super Bowl? Bring back the Ice Bowl, I'm all for it. Football is best with big hits and bad weather. Not fouls and flags.
I never understood the appeal of warm weather for football. Both in college and the pros. The Super Bowl is the biggest game of the season, yet isn't played in the biggest markets in the US (New York, Chicago), all because of weather. Money is to be made either way, and playing in the cold happens for most teams half the season anyway.
People will make a big deal and then there will be some weird weather that week and it will be 50 degrees and no one will care.

People don't like to watch games in freezing cold weather.. Especially if a team from the south or west coast is in the superbowl.
Plus, there's a lot more to do in New Orleans and Miami than in New York.
I don't mind the game being in New York, just giving reasons why people don't like cold weather games.
I hope it's a blizzard and it will make an amazing game of football. Unfortunately for college almost all the good teams play in warm climates but the nfl is made to be played in freezing weather and snow, especially in the playoffs
I like it for a couple reasons. 1- I don't have to play in it. 2- Always warm in my house. 3- No lines for bathroom. 4- Beer is MUCH CHEAPER.

Lesticles, it absolutely sucks and I'm a Jersey City guy that's lived in NYC for years as well. There's a reason why the final four (albeit they have to be in football stadiums now for attendance purposes) is no longer in the Meadowlands.
It blows. You can't get there via public transportation easily. It can take you an hour and change to get there from Manhattan. During this shitshow, it will be ten times worse. You're always stuck in traffic when there's a game there (the locals like myself know all the roads to avoid during any type of event). There will be zero next to nothing for fans to do UNLESS you stay in NYC where you will get AZZ JACKED with prices during this event. Hotel prices will make NYE in the city seem like you're staying at Motel 6. Every item of food you consume will be through the roof. (we all know where to get the good cheap stuff, but even they will crush you with pricing) EG, 12oz Miller Lite bottle in Times Square normally goes for 9 bucks a bottle. SB, it will be 12 or 13....
Trust me, I back my neck of the woods stronger than any other and this is an AWFUL decision. The people around here think it's a terrible idea.
Plus, we get pissed to beat hell cause nobody knows how to walk on a damn sidewalk in NYC....
People pay that much $ for Miller Lite? Dumbazzez
I take it you've never been to NYC....
No. And don't drink that stuff either
In Manhattan, you name your price so to speak. Doesn't matter, there were 46 million tourists through there last year, so when some guy from Lichtenstein swings in, he doesn't know, nor care what that price is and whether or not it's a good product. He just knows it to be "American"!
If you're a Ducks fan, I take it you like the good stuff....
Ahhh, looks like ND, yes?

Absolutely none of what you just ranted about has anything to do with weather - you know, the point of the OP.
I don't really care where they play the Super Bowl but football is always the cold weather game so why not play it in the cold every once in awhile?

I think its great. Growing up, we loved when it rained or snowed. We loved the bad weather. Fans won't mind, because they are at the freaking Super Bowl. Football is a game that is meant to be played in the elements. That is why I hate domes.
Well the headline is what do you think about the superbowl being in New York next
He talked about the weather, I'm talking about everything else. Trust me, I know my neck of the woods well....
Hope the weather is awful, terrible, and brutal. Perhaps that is the only way real football fans can go the game instead of a bunch of glams...
If you can play football in Boston outdoors, you can play in NYC. What's the big deal?
Keep waiting for a NY Jets fan to say "great! It will be a home game for us!"
I think it is a great idea to have it in New York for many reasons - the most simple being that it is widely considered the greatest city in the world so why would you not want to have one of the greatest sporting events in the world there? People are freaking out about weather before it even happens. I remember the same complaints about Indy and it was a beautiful week. On the contrary, just the year before, Dallas hosted and was considered the worst host of all time with the weather in the teens and the seating issues. I remember the media complaining about the game in Detroit a few years back and afterwards the city received great reviews as a host. People will always complain. The bottom line is that the players will still play, the coaches will still coach, the game will still be sold out, and 100 million people will still watch. In fact, I bet it breaks the TV record because it is in New York.
