Santa Clara Gets Additional Demands From NFL While Seeking Super Bowl Bid
Published January 14, 2013
MILE HIGH WISHES: In Denver, Mike Klis reported the Broncos and city officials "continue to work toward their bid to host the Super Bowl." They are "in the process of bidding to host the Super Bowl in 2018, 2019 or 2020." NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell before Saturday's Ravens-Broncos game said, "My personal view is, the game of football is to be played in the elements. There are people who like to see the Super Bowl played in absolutely pristine conditions, where everything is the same and there's no weather elements at all. I just don't think that's football." The league will "test the concept" of having a Super Bowl in a cold-weather stadium next year when the game is played at MetLife Stadium in N.Y. Goodell said of holding the Super Bowl in N.Y.: "It was a great opportunity to look at 'Will this work?' Is this something that can have a real positive change for the NFL? We'll see" (DENVER POST, 1/12).
