Seattle wants to host a Super Bowl
While Seahawks fans are counting on their football team returning to the Super Bowl - and this time winning the Vince Lombardi Trophy - wouldn't it be cool if Seattle hosted the NFL's championship game?

    have INDOOR stadiums and there ain't a snowball's chance in he11 that the NFL is going to risk having a super bowl -- and halftime show -- on a cold, rainy, 38-degree January day in Seattle.

    Sean,
    What about NY? The weather there is SURE to be much fowler than anything Seattle can conjure...

    @Sean.
    You forgot to add snow to the mix; although it's rare in Seattle there have been some pretty nasty January's.

    Yes, and if it snows. . .
    Seattle won't put salt on the streets because the salt might actually wash into the salt water (God forbid!)! Also, the Seattle City Counsel will have to review and debate the proposal for 3 year prior making a decision. I love this town--the city of good ol' common sense and reason.

    Another crap write-up from Bill Swartz
    Honestly, the worst stories on this site come from the News Chick but this guy is a close second. Seattle can want in one hand and chit in the other. They will never put a Super Bowl here. Too cold and wet. And the example of NYC hosting in 2014? As hard as some people think it is, this is not NYC.

    Did you mean Detroit, Indianapolis and New York (will host a coming Super Bowl). It's true that two of the teams have domes but New York doesn't and they'll play it outdoors in New York in February. Worst and more unpredictible weather there than Seattle.

    2018 SB
    Lets see that is 5.5 years away. That 'should' give the city and county clowncils enough time to debate whether we want one and time enough for the anti-sports contingent to gen up an referendum or initiative to place in front of the voters. Also gives enough time for the follow on law suit they will most definitely file to prevent this from happening. But then again this is Seattle and King County, so maybe we should try for the 2028 SB instead!

    why are we afriad of weather?
    that used to be one of the really cool uncontrolable variables that football had attached to it: outdoor fields where the WEATHER can actually effect the game! it's awesome!

    that, and actual grass. why so much focus on fake grass? where are the mud bowls and snow bowls where people slip and slide and fumble and such. it added excitment!

    the toughman's game is getting a little prima-donna soft.

    It's the accountants at the NFL who are. Seattle would NOT be as attractive a Superbowl city as most others.

    Is Seattle ready?
    Not only is the weather in Seattle not very nice nice at that time of year but I don't know if the Seattle infrastructure ready to host an event like the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl is more than just a one-day event. The week leading up the most watched TV show in any given year but there is a lot ov media coverage leading up to the game itself. Will the tunnel to replace the Alaskan Way viaduct, the new 520 bridge and the proposed light rail projects be done by 2018? If the powers that be are serious about hosting a Super Bowl they can't propose any new major transportation projects between now and when we will host a Super Bowl.

    My Thoughts
    Is this area ready to host a Super Bowl? My thoughts are that this area is more than ready. When you think about it this area is one of the largest markets in the country and it would be appropriate for the Super Bowl to come here. Also for those who think because February is a nasty weather month I just have to say to them that football is supposed to be played where the elements actually play a part in the game. One last thought we did an excellent job hosting the MLB All-Star Game there is no reason to think we wouldn't do the same kind of job with the Super Bowl.

    dont like seattle in february LEAVE
    i am sick of all you mambypamby so called locals that are slamminig the chance of the GREAT city of seattle getting the super bowl...we have hosted the MLB all star game, the final four twice, and the goodwill games just to name a few of the worldclass events this city deserved to have. football is an outdoor game and all those years we had to put up with a dome sucked. shreeveport lousianna hosted a bowl game during a snowstorm a few years ago and the new OUTDOOR MEADOWLANDS IN NJ WILL be hosting a superbowl in the winter. if you dont like this city so much that you want to show the world what we have, then please get the heck out of my town.
