Dan Snyder: D.C. Should Get To Host Superbowl

UPDATE:  just got the word that the NY/NJ Meadowlands will be hosting Superbowl 2014.

According to the Post and ESPN, Dan Snyder doesn’t see any reason why Washington D.C. can’t host a Superbowl. In fact it sounds more like he expects there to be one, someday.  [via ESPN]

“I think Washington should get one, no matter what,” Snyder told Washington Post NFL columnist Mark Maske on Tuesday. “It is the nation’s capital.”

But something tells me that today’s announcement, which will certainly fall in favor of New York, will not open the floodgates for future cold-weather Super Bowls. This is an opportunity for the league to reward the Giants and Jets for building a $1.6 billion stadium during tough economic times. If the (passing) game is affected by snow or freezing rain in early February, it’s likely the league will return to its warm-weather roots. And even if it’s sunny and 45 degrees, I don’t think Roger Goodell will be in a rush to hold the game at FedEx.

Just imagine…. Robert Kraft and Dan Snyder going toe to toe over bidding rights for Superbowl 2015 next year when we have no idea if NYC will get theirs yet?  And even if they do, it could be a DISASTER with the snow storms up there!  As it stands, NYC is the front runner to get a Superbowl hosted at the new Meadowlands… Mara and Johnson have been very persuasive apparently… here’s a link to the Superbowl 2014 bid feature on New York and New Jersey. Check it out.
