Jets, Giants want new home to host 2014 Super Bowl
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP)—The Giants and Jets want to bring the Super Bowl to their new stadium in New Jersey in 2014.
After receiving approval from a league committee to bid on an NFL title game, the teams announced on Thursday that they will submit a proposal to host what would be a cold weather title game in four years.
The new 82,500-seat stadium is scheduled to open next year.
The NFL owners’ Super Bowl Advisory Committee allowed the bid despite the traditional requirement that host regions have a minimum temperature of 50 degrees or indoor stadiums.
The advisory committee gave approval with the understanding that the bid represents a unique, once-only circumstance to celebrate the new stadium and the great heritage of the NFL in the New York region.
The New Meadowlands Stadium Company, which is building the new stadium, has to submit a preliminary proposal to the NFL by April 1. The winning bid will be announced at the end of May.
“It’s time for the biggest game in football to be played on the biggest stage in the world,” Jets owner Woody Johnson and Giants co-owner Jonathan Tisch said in a joint statement as chairmen of the bid committee. “We are confident that the appeal and prestige of the New York City metropolitan region, coupled with the innovative capabilities of our brand-new state-of-the-art facility, can provide a unique and exciting experience for the teams and fans, as well as the entire league and the sport of football.
“And, of course, we would love to bring the Super Bowl and its significant economic benefits to New York and northern New Jersey,” they added.
A New York/New Jersey Super Bowl would generate hundreds of millions of dollars in economic activity, and serve as a major boost for the area, creating hundreds of jobs related to staging the game, the teams said.

The new stadium is going to be a nice stadium, one that's very fitting to host a Super Bowl in. Also, New York City is a great spot to host the Super Bowl.More to do there, which will bring even more people to the big game.
I think the Super Bowl should be held up north sometimes. Growing up in the north I think playing in the elements is part of the game. There's a reason why the game is played in the fall/winter not in the summer.

While it seems like a fair thing, I don't believe it will ever happen. If they would have put a retractable roof on the stadium the chances for this to be a reality would be more accepting.
The cold weather is going to deter the NFL from doing it. There will be uproar about playing in the cold, we wouldn't want to freeze the warm weather teams and make it "unfair" for them against a team like the Giants/Jets or Packers who are used to the cold.
They will also say fans won't like it, they won't want to freeze at the Super Bowl.
I'm not saying I disagree with the idea, I just don't think it will happen.
