New Orleans Saints executive Dennis Lauscha not enamored with potential cold-weather Super Bowl
 
1 Attachment(s)
The voting by NFL owners to award Super Bowl host sites are done by secret ballot, so it isn't known what the final tally was in awarding New York/New Jersey the 2014 championship game.

But you can count New Orleans Saints executive vice president Dennis Lauscha in the number who is not enamored by playing the Super Bowl in a cold-weather city at an outdoor stadium.

Saints owner Tom Benson declined comment.

Lauscha said if he had his way, all the Super Bowls would be played in New Orleans, which will host the 2013 game.

"I think New Orleans offers the absolute best situation," Lauscha said. "It's a warm-weather city. It's compact. There is a lot to do. There are great entertainment venues, great stadium. It is the absolute best place to have a Super Bowl.

I really can't disagree with anything he said.

I went to LSU with Dennis and knew his sister Shelly. Think the Saints was his first job out of college. GEAUX DENNIS!

SUPERBOWL SHOULD BE IN THE SUPERDOME PERMINANTLY!

And I think 99% of the media would TOTALLY agree! LOL

I know that Woody Paige mentioned that very thing on Around the Horn the other day.

It should be renamed the Chilly Bowl whenever it is played in cold weather venues. Dan Snyder is trying to get one now!

75% of the games during the season are played in "cold weather" stadiums

just like a southern team to hate the idea of cold weather in the north.....i wasnt a fan at first, but some of the most memorable games ever were played in cold weather simply because of the weather

not to mention the fact that no matter where it is, there is a possibility that the weather will effect the game regardless

instead of trying to protect teams that pass the ball by playing in a dome, how about we acknowledge that there are lots of teams that base their games on the run and stout defense because they have to play in those "cold weather" cities all year long

You're probably right ... but it'll hurt the NFL brand in the long run as it'll be less marketable since the cold weather will allow much fewer activities during the Super Bowl week. And as far as the memorable games, you can likely only reference the very same 4 to 5 games in NFL History whereas you don't have enough fingers to account for all of the memorable games in good weather. While it might be kinda cool to see a snow game from time to time, it'll hurt the game more than it would entertain us.

much like the city of new orleans has a bond with its football team, many northern cities share a similar bond

people will watch the super bowl regardless of where it is played

not as many things to do in chicago or new york as there are in new orleans?

i beg to differ

the climate may make the game colder, but its not going to prevent tourism all together

i think this is just like a Y2K scare......we are worried because its never happened but in the end it really wont make a difference

ESPN Radio

Colin Cowherd begs to differ! As does likely the rest of the football world!

And it's not just New Orleans ... Miami... San Diego ... etc .... Can you easily play Golf in the snow?
