Today is the day NFL owners decide on the location of the 2014 Super Bowl. And it seems like that location is going to be the New Meadowlands Stadium.
From the New York Post.
Patriots owner Robert Kraft said he and his peers are going to use New York as a test case for the viability of holding Super Bowls beyond 2014 in such frigid February locales as Philadelphia, Denver, Seattle and Washington, D.C."We’re going to want to see how this one goes before committing [to Super Bowls in cold, open-air venues] beyond New York," Kraft told The Post yesterday.
But Kraft was effusive in praise of New York’s bid, even though it involves helping out the arch-rival Jets, and said he had pushed the idea of a Big Apple Super Bowl as far back as the days just after 9/11.
"I think it’s just a great symbol," Kraft said. "And I also believe in football in the natural elements, and I think there’s enough to do in the New York area to make it a great event. I think it will be one of the most memorable games in the history of all Super Bowls."
