San Diego seems like the only place where there is no major weather threat
Even places like Atlanta and Dallas have been taken out by snow in recent years

I don't think this has to do with the weather. New York is very expensive and then add a super bowl to it. The common man can not go. They have priced themselves out so bad. The Economy is still in the tank and people just can afford the trip. It has become even more business guys. I saw on stub hub they had a sky box seats they wanted $595,000. That is just stupid.

Oh no, they have to play outside in the snow and cold, like it's real football instead of a controlled environment or the middle of a tropical area.


Since when is snow and cold defined as "real football". Real football is present wherever they play it. And if you're a fan dishing out a large chunk of money, you'd much rather be sitting in a climate controlled dome than freezing your arse off outside in the snow.

Well...most fans at least.

For the average fan, it certainly is.

Not for the white collar types who comprise the vast majority of the Super Bowl crowd though. It's not a surprise that those types are less willing to sit through "bad" ( Laughing ) weather to watch a game that they have little rooting interest in.

I believe that the lack of sale is moreso the fact that the SB is between two west-coast teams in an east coast stadium than the weather. If, for example, this was a NY Giants / New England Super Bowl, it would've been easily sold out by now.

Not surprised. I dont want to pay that kind of money for a ticket, plane ticket, food, hotel etc. and then freeze my butt off outside. Much rather spend 10% of that money on an epic party

Not to mention that the majority of the "real football" players who play "real football" come from those darn warm weather states.

This really just seems like an extension of the issue facing the league in recent years, being that the in-home experience is far superior to the stadium experience, in most cases.

I could shell out about $6000+ for me and someone to go to the game and sit through bad weather, or for about 10% of that, stay home and watch the game on my big television surrounded by friends and great food. Not really a hard choice.

The weather just made this an even easier decision.

Really no surprise. I mean you'd be paying outrageous money to sit outside, who wants to pay that much for a ticket when you can stay home and watch it on a big screen with your friends?

Personally, I blame Bruno Mars.

Yeah, I said it.

If this SB doesn't sell out I can only envision this accelerating Goodell's idea that a SB could potentially be played abroad.

If England can sell out Jacksonville Jaguars games then I think we can sell out a SB no matter the weather.

I wonder how long people are going to keep that? That phrase stopped being true about 2 years ago, maybe longer.

Newsflash, the economy is fine. Has been for a while.

I'm a fan of the cold weather super bowl, but even i have to admit this probably has to do with the inclement weather. Though i would like to see a true apples to apples comparison for past years too. Where there still seats available last year at this time? And how much were they going for?

It's going to be a long time before that happens. A very long time. Teams/cities fight every year for the right to hose the big game. I don't think the owners will be willing to give that up to England any time soon.

And before anyone utters the name Goodell again, he doesn't have control over that decision.
