NFL: Blackout will not hurt NOLA's future SB bids


quote:

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Sunday's 34-minute blackout won't impact the city of New Orleans' chances of hosting another Super Bowl. "I fully expect that we will be back here for Super Bowls," he said Monday morning. "And I hope we will be back. We want to be back."
quote:

"We knew they have an interest in future Super Bowls, and we look forward to evaluating that," Goodell said. "Going forward, I don't think this will have any impact at all on what I think will be remembered for one of the greatest Super Bowl weeks."


LINK

Bottom line: no city offers a better centralized stadium location, great food and culture, and outside-the-stadium experience. New Orleans has the best tradition and history of hosting Super Bowls. It is the quintessential Super Bowl city. One blackout doesn't change that. Lulz at the idiots on here (and in the media) who thought otherwise

Him saying that doesn't mean anything one way or the other. What else was he gonna say?

That being said, of course they're gonna be back. New Orleans offers of one of the best if not THE best Super Bowl environments in the country. The City & The Game just fit together perfectly in every aspect.

For the record, he didn't say when. I think this will hurt the 2018 bid. Could they still get it? Certainly...but I think it won't be a cakewalk.

Every single media goob I have heard for the past 2 weeks has done nothing but go on and on about how awesome Nola was for the Super Bowl. I think most of them either never experienced it or forgot how good it was. Even Colin Cowherd.

I even heard some suggest that the only Super Bowl sites should be Miami and Nola.

Why would it hurt the 2018 bid, but not SB's years down the line?

I didn't read through the thread, but anyone who says it is a non-issue is just wrong.

NOLA will host another Super Bowl. No one is going to disagree with that. This put a damper on their 2018 bid and it certainly can't happen again, as based on the reports this morning it sounds like it could have been prevented.

At some point, when the stadium is 60 years old and the last remaining dome, it will affect future bids.

Yeah, why would an electrical problem that can be identified and fixed in a very short amount of time affect a Super Bowl bid for 5 years from now?

Makes no sense.

How long do people think it will take to identify and fix a problem that occurred ONE time out of all of the thousands of football games played in the Superdome?

Really?
