As the NFL world sets to play it’s final game of the 2012 regular season this Sunday, some eyes are already looking ahead to the 2013 season and Super Bowl XLVIII. Next year, the Super Bowl will be played at the Meadowlands in New Jersey, marking the first time that the big game will be played in a northern climate in a non-dome stadium. I despise the idea, and it seems that Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco agrees.
Mike Klis of the Denver Post got quite an answer from Flacco when he asked the New Jersey native about the Super Being in his home state next season. “Yeah, I think it’s retarded. I probably shouldn’t say that. I think it’s stupid. If you want a Super Bowl, put a retractable dome on your stadium. Then you can get one. Other than that I really don’t like the idea. I don’t think people would react very well to it, or be glad to play anybody in that kind of weather,” said Flacco.
The New York/New Jersey region got quite a blast of cold air last week, with many cities in the northeast setting records for record cold temperatures.
I couldn’t agree with Flacco more. The award of the Super Bowl to New York/New Jersey was a horrible idea and I am hoping for record setting cold and massive amounts of snow so that the league never repeats this horrible decision ever again.
