    The list of NO's for this game is ridiculous.

    Let this be a lesson to the NFL executives... Man those people in Jersey love to take the freedom and the fun out of the greatest game on Earth.

    The Super Bowl has never been for fans at the stadium.

    For the first time in decades, Super Bowl tickets have gone down in price the week before the game. They are still outrageously expensive, but the price is dropping. Perhaps it's just an anomaly, or perhaps it's a very early signs of a trend. If the NFL owners and brass haven't noticed, they should.

    That would be awesome. The last projections I saw looked to be giving them as ideal of conditions as they could expect for this time of year.

    Go GATORS!

    What a perfectly written article! I find it shocking whenever I tell someone that the NFL is a not-for-profit. People still just don't believe it when they hear it.
    For god's sake, fix this.

    Applies to most NFL topics these days, but Super Bowl location and all the logistical b.s. around this one definitely qualifies.

    41* at kickoff. 35* by game's end.

    <5% chance of precip.

    Winds 9-10mph.

    I personally like that th game may be affected by the elements. It's about the only thing old school left with the game. Some of the most memorable games in history have been played in not - so - ideal conditions. With the wind they are calling for I like Seattle ' s chances. They can run power and defend the pass. Perfect for windy days. Or rain and snow for that matter.

    To play devil's advocate, I honestly don't know that you would want to walk to MetLife. It is in the middle of a swamp, and is surrounded by highways. The nearest residential areas are at least a mile away, and it will be February. The article also mentions that you can't take a cab... Well, a cab from Manhattan would cost as much or more than one of the shuttles... IF you could find one that would take you.

    For Giants/Jets games, most fans take the shuttles or trains, it's just a LOT easier to do.

    Now, the no tailgating is ridiculous.

    Really doesn't sound so bad.

    I have no idea why everyone's freaking out about this and getting mad at the NFL.

    They were saying that 18,000 tickdets still remain! Having it in NJ in February is a boneheaded move.

    No making them 500$ a ticket is a bone headed move. They took there biggest market right out of the biggest game. That's a bone headed move.

    They jack the prices up because they make more money off of us by having us at home on our ass watching the big game on TV. They in turn make the real money off of the advertising/network revenue.
