Dolphins want to play game on aircraft carrier
 
After a failed attempt to secure public funds for stadium renovations, the Miami Dolphins’ brass has focused their attention on bids for Super Bowl 50 and 51.

And they’ve wandered way out of the box.

According to Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post, the Dolphins want to place a U.S. navy aircraft carrier in downtown Miami — aptly titled “Super Bowl Park” — and play a football game on the deck.

The carrier would come retrofitted with a full 120-yard field.

“I imagine they’ll be playing touch football on it, not tackle,” Volin quipped.

NBCMiami.com reports the plan also includes “an interactive video exhibit and extensive transportation plan that includes a water shuttle and railroad that would drop people off near the park.”

“We’ve submitted the best bid that we can in every aspect,” Dolphins CEO Mike Dee said. “From a Dolphins perspective, we’re doing every thing we can.”

Everything but thinking logically, it seems. But, hey, it just might be crazy enough to sway the NFL. We’ll know on May 22, when the locations of the 2016 and 2017 Super Bowls are announced.

Dolphins to use carrier in SB bid?

IDK, if they sign a bunch of Arena Football League guys for the game, they should be alright, :lol:.

"The NFL could host a Super Bowl like...in a desert....with like, flaming yard lines that are on fire, painted on the ground in paint that burns, and goal posts made out of bones and cowskulls...no wait, they could have a Super Bowl on the ice, on a glacier, with like, helicopters flying over head...no wait, I got it -- a Super Bowl under the ocean, in a big glass dome, on the spot where the Titanic went down, and the refs could be robots -- they could have robot refs that throw flags and blow whistles and stuff, and people could watch thru closed circuit TV.... Or wait, I really got it man, they could build an inflatable stadium, like a giant balloon -- like a spacewalk filled with helium instead of air, you know? That you blow it up, and then everybody gets on board, the whole stadium like lifts off dude, they could have a Super Bowl that flies through the air and goes everywhere, anywhere it wants to. That would be cool -- like really cool. Yeah man, Miami should totally do that."

"wandered out of the box"?

More like borrowed someone eases idea.
A look at an unusual venue - NCAA.com

Just like their new logo... not a whole lot of innovation needed to go into that.

Might be possible if the Jag's were in the super bowl as there would be no room for seating.. Both of the Jag's fans could go.

As long as they don't sail too close to the edge and fall off it should be ok!
