    I hope Denver hosts one someday.

      Can you Imagine if the Broncos are the first team to win a "home" Super Bowl.

        There defintely wouldn't be an excuse to lose it if they did make it. Your playing the biggest game of the year and you have home field advantage. That never happens lol.

              Pat tried to get the Super Bowl in Denver before but was denied because of the weather factor.

              I was totally surprised New York was granted 2014 so I guess anything is possible at this point.

                I'm just imagining Keith Olbermann's reaction. And someone else whose name I refuse to mention.

                  I thought it would be cool to bump this old thread since the topic is on the rise right now.

                    Without a doubt I'm on board. A Mile High Super Bowl would be amazing. That is if we all survive 2012 LOL.

                      I think it would be cool if they did something where every 4 years there is a cold weather Superbowl. It would make it so it is fairly often, but spread enough that it is still seen as a special or rare event. New York 2014, Denver 2018, Lambeau Field 2022?

                        Bring it on. NY NJ only got it because of NY. NJ hardly a factor, although my brother brags how the Giants get it with their stadium.

                        Hoping INVESCO gets it.

                          dont bash me cus im not familar with the state and climate over there
                          Actually, Invesco was built in hopes of also drawing a SB. The Broncos have tried in vain to get the NFL to bring it here. The fact of the matter is, it all boils down to market share. The league does not think the Denver is a big enough market to host a SB. The funny thing is I think Arizona, Minnesota, Detroit and Indy only got it for having a dome stadiums. There is more to do here during the winter season than most of those other locations.

                            Don't think of the SB as a football game, think of it as a two week event. Then ask if Denver can host a two week event.

                            In order to do that you must have the following.

                            -The ability to have 400 or so private jets land/take off in three hours time or so. I know this sounds like I am joking, but this is true. The sheer number of jets at the SB will astound you. Airfields do HUGE business with fuel and landing fees for two weeks. I think there are three airports around the Denver area, one being Denver Intl....but I am not sure they could handle evenhalf the traffic.

                            -The ability to get to the SB via roads. I know, another "duh" one but this is the one that sinks most cities. You cannot have the stadium out in the middle of nowhere with only one road in and out. I think this was the main problem with the Jacksonville SB and the reason why it will never take place there again.

                            -The ability to hold a mass media event INSIDE for two weeks. You needs a big convention hall or something similar. The NFL puts on a huge show. People who watch the SB only see about one tenth of the actual stuff going on. Heck, the game is actually second place to all the other stuff like NFL Experience, parties..etc.

                            IMO there are two and only two cold weather cities that can do all three of the above. New York and Chicago. I think Seattle might be able to do the things but they will never put the SB in Seattle.

                            They want snow, not rain. That is a big thing. If you want a bad weather game, you can get that in Miami in February. 2006 had a ton of rain. I also think the Steelers played a SB in 35ish degree weather, no snow though.

                            A SB with a lot of snow would be great, but even with New York and Chicago weather it is still a roll of the dice. Probably just as likely to get rain as snow.

                              I don't think snow would be a factor depending on what time of the day it snows if that makes any sense lol.

                              They would probably clear the field of the snow but it would probably be cold as hell.

                              But the winter games that i saw this year in Denver didn't look that bad.

                              It actually looked really nice with the chilly air and the sunniness.

                              It gets boring seeing Florida get it all the time hopefully the NY Superbowl will open doors.

                                To answer all those in bold, yes to all.

                                DIA is one of the biggest airports in all of America. It can more than hold 400 or so private jets.

                                Yes, there are many ways to get into Invesco. There's plenty of ways in and out of there. No problem there.

                                What city/state wouldn't be able to hold a massive indoor SB event. Especially if they have a NFL team. It more times than not comes down to the stadium itself.

                                The city of Denver is more than capable of holding a SB event. It's held some major events before, and it still can. Holding a SB event is nothing compared to holding a event for the world's leaders.
