Piling on layers


It depends on who the NFL wants at the Super Bowl. As is, they have largely cut the regular fan out of it. The Super Bowl is corporate. Tickets are given to big companies and those associated with the league. The best and majority of the seats are gone before an average fan can get at them. If they move to cold weather stadiums, they may loose some of that. They can still put up VIPs in the boxes, but you will get fewer in the stands if they have to put on six layers just to maintain body heat.

As a football purist, I'm all for it, because snow games are awesome, but I think in the long run it would hurt. You may loose the casual fans, which make up a big part of viewership, if the game is a grinder and low scoring for the sake of the weather versus a good defensive team.
