So my buddy just dropped a pretty good theory on me. I must say, I think he is onto something
-they did not set the date yet
-the difference between a couple of weeks in that time of year is dramatic
-they will use this as a catalyst to extend the regular season 2 more games
-they will use this as a catalyst to move up the start date of the season 1 more week
-SuperBowls will be generally played in mid Feb, is this really bad weather?
-more recent cold weather cities will start to get bids, especially those with newer stadiums
-The NFL aims to squash other competition in Mid Feb....NBA all star and Nascar
Bottom line. This is not a move to get the NFL into the cold. Its a move to get the NFL out of the cold.
Very Very interesting
They want the Super Bowl on Presidents day weekend so people can get wasted and have the Monday off to rest.
The military is gonna HATE that. They (at least the ones overseas) usually get a 3-day weekend for the Super Bowl (when the game falls on a Monday overseas) and a 4-day weekend for Presidents' Day. Combining the two would of course remove an extended weekend for them!
