    Probably not, it would be too cold and with the altitude...just don't see it happening. But I've seen crazier things!

    Not to mention there isn't a lot to do in Denver itself. Any draw for the two weeks prior to the SB would be skiing in the high country which is about 2 hours west of Denver.
    Current morale factor (on a scale of 1-10): -1000 and dropping like a lead balloon.

    Reason: Thanks a lot Bowlen, McDaniels and Cutler!

    Oh yeah likes theres just a TON to do in Flagstaff, Arizona
    I think it just has to do with weather because its usually pretty cold here in February.

    Oh no - now you've done it! Us poor old tax payers (the ones who can't afford a ticket) will now have to pay for a roof!

    If they ever added a roof to Invesco, it would be for the sole purpose of bringing in the Superbowl and maybe one or two other events. They would almost certainly leave it open for all other Football games. It WON'T get the Superbowl without a roof.

    When I look at the top edge of Invesco though... it says to me... 'We built this to be impossible to put a roof on, so that we could never make that mistake. Keep football pure.'

    As for the size and activities in Denver... Jacksonville FL actually doesn't even have enough rooms to host such an event (hotel rooms)... yet they got one. They had to bring in cruise ships just to board people. Ever stay on a cruise ship? The ships are a blast... the rooms are tiny and claustrophobic.

    Denver has already hosted the NBA allstar game and then last year the DNC... which given the number of events involved... possibly needed more rooms and places to do things.

    Denver's capable of holding the Superbowl. One of the greatest cities in the world, and I firmly believe that.
    Thanks, Reid!

    That raises a good point. I think the super bowl should be played in the elements. Rain snow whatever.

    Yeah but remember the Buffalo game two weeks later - it was like 9 degrees or something. OK for a regular season game, but much too cold for the corporate SuperBowl types, IMHO.

    They meant... in Denver, a retractable roof would be required.

    The other places don't get snow that often.

    Thanks, Reid!
