We've been wondering forever why the NFL can’t stage a Super Bowl in Seattle. Well, as Peter King points out, the walls impeding that idea might be about to crumble.
King takes the shortsighted view that it’s a horrible idea to hold the Super Bowl in northern cities. He says hosting a Super Bowl in the Jets’ and Giants’ new stadium in February 2014 is a bad idea because “too few people are thinking about the precedent it sets for future games in outdoor, cold-weather venues.”
King seems aghast at the idea that Dan Snyder will want the game at FedEx Field or Pat Bowlen will want it in Denver or Paul Allen will want it at Qwest Field.
“Dangerous ground for the NFL to travel,” King calls it.
