That doesn't seem like a big deal to me, either. Bad weather is a part of football, so the teams will have to adjust if that's the case.

I'm all for a Super Bowl in cold weather. But if they're seriously considering having it on a Saturday or delaying it untill Tuesday, then the experiment already failed.

You're overreacting because your team lost, and they lost fair and square, period. Let it go.

I'd like to see one while it's snowing, actually. That would be amazing. Miserable cold weather, nah. But at least they'd probably be more prepared for it up here, unlike it catching them unexpectedly down in Dallas.

I'm sure if the Packers and Texans play in the Superbowl next year, it will be completely fair to both teams.

It was a bigger screwjob than Montreal, and I'll never, ever let it go. I still haven't forgiven Sam and Avi for forcing Topher "Stick Man" Grace on Venom despite 6 years passing. I'm a Raven-hater for life because they have the 49ers SB trophy. Whenever I see purple, I actually see red.

Fine...if you wanna to piss and moan because your team lost, understandable because it hurts. But in reality it wasn't a screw job and the Ravens won the football game fair and square. You can call it what you want for your own purposes, but what it IS is a fair football championship win.

If there is a lesson from this year's debacle, it's that all scoring plays should be reviewed, and the refs should be required to overturn them if there is an infraction--even one that wasn't called on the field.

Moreover, there shouldn't be two sets of rules for any teams or any game. You touch or bump a ref, even a bad one like Jerome Boogar, you're gone from the game. Thugs shouldn't be tolerated.

My comment about the Packers vs Texans was in regard to the fairness of a snowy Superbowl between a team that plays in it regularly and one that doesn't.

Hahahahaha you are ridiculous. so what's your excuse for the first half of the game when the 49ers were absolutely god awful and didn't deserve to be there. The only reason they ever came back is because they're younger and were able to stay warm during basically a hour of downtime. They didn't deserve to be in that game the way they played let alone win.

Last Winter in NY/NJ was mild, obviously this one wasn't. The week before this year's Super Bowl, it was in the 40s-50s.



Either or, snow or not, I like the new venue even though, for a new stadium, they seem to have Super Bowl week at different locations.

I don't understand why you guys have to play the SB in warm weather... football is a game to be played in spite of weather conditions... if it's cold, rainy, or snowing, then man up and play football.

We have the Grey Cup here in Canada in late November, and other than when it's played in BC or Toronto, the weather will always be a factor... makes the game more fun (or more frustrating if your team keeps dropping the ball)...

I think a SB in Seattle or Green Bay would be AWESOME!!!!

It appears there won't be an NFL Experience this year because they can't find a venue.

Some of the greatest games in football history have been in the extreme cold or snow. Heck, the hockey Winter Classic is brilliant. But it's obviously become more of an entertainment event over the years instead of just a game, so it's understandable that weather's a concern. But I'd love seeing a winter superbowl in the elements...as long as I'm nice and warm.

They should turn Harlem into NFL Village.


Heck, they have the whole Hudson River park strip all the way down to Battery Park. But I guess too cold...and it would clog up traffic/business during the week.

They were a run-first, grind-it-out team. They got behind in several games this year (like the NFC title game) but were able to wear the opposition down. But they never had the refs add another 14 points then strip them of scoring opportunities during their comebacks. Like I said- Raven rules.

I see the Harbaugh curse is affecting the fanbases now.

In the end the 49ers are more to blame than the refs. While some of those calls could have been made in a regular season game, I don't know why the 49er fans aren't blaming Harbaugh and the OC more?

They let James run a play? 3 passes to Crabtree? Why not play action? Why not throw it to Davis? Why not give it to Gore?

I find more fault with the 49ers playcalling then the ref's calls.

Lewis was absolutely godawful against Davis. I would like to know why every play call wasn't, "Just pass to whoever Lewis is covering." The dude was trailing behind players by yards at a time before they even got the ball. He looked like he hasn't run in years.

Sure, the officiating was horrid, but so were the '9ers (for most of the game) and their playcalling.

The officials didn't take the game from the Niners, the Niners lost it themselves. That is a fact. Blaming it on the officials is only sour grapes. Every fan feels that when their team loses, but it is still that.

If you had the option to play it in warm weather, I'm sure you would.

San Francisco definitely needed to run the ball during that those last crucial moments. Harbaugh should have just given the ball to Gore. Lewis played like absolute s*** that entire game. If they just would have ran up the middle, the Super Bowl would have had different winners.

These people who are constantly saying San Francisco got screwed over would have better luck saying that they got paid off to lose the game. I understand that hindsight is 20/20, but passing in the red zone when the running game was so reliable throughout the game defied all logic. Throwing the ball at that part of the game was a damn shame. To come back from that half-time deficit and lose like that? Horrible.
