Should the Super Bowl no longer be played at a neutral location?

The only way this would work is if you made the Super Bowl a best of 3 series. I think that would be great, but we'd end up playing football into March. Again I think that would be great, but the players might be opposed to losing so much vacation.

Re the comment by LegallyMurphy

Actually, it could end just where it is now because there are 2 weeks we could eliminate. Drop the bye weeks and drop the week before the Super Bowl. That would give you the weeks you need. Indeed, if it did not go all 3 weeks, you would finish not in March, but January.

I am surprised that this has not been proposed yet. Best of 3, home field for the better record and I agree with Tom drop the bye weeks. Season would end when it ends and the fans would get plenty more ball. Also we would not complain about flukes like last year when the Patriots blew it, or like Super Bowl 25 and the wide right. This would be so much more fair. Anyone know if this has been proposed before and why they it isnt in the rules yet?

1. The neutral site goes back to the old AFL / NFL days where each team was the winner of their league and the neutral site was chosen for that reason, and most people don't want to go to places like Green Bay, Cleveland or Buffalo in January (just to name a few)

2. There is no way they could have a best of 3 series because the players are too banged up after one game to play three in a row.

3. I agree that the bye weeks should be eliminated from the playoffs, and just play until it's over without all the hype.
