  • Cold Weather Super Bowl: Ravens' Joe Flacco Not A Fan

    http://www.bigblueview.com/2013/1/29...-roger-goodell

    Excerpt: Baltimore Raven's' quarterback Joe Flacco apologized Tuesday for calling the idea of playing a Super Bowl outdoors in cold weather "******ed," but didn't back off his criticism of the idea. The 2014 Super Bowl, of course, is being played at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.JHere is what Flacco, whose Baltimore Ravens face the San Francisco 49ers in the 2013 Super Bowl in New Orleans, said on Monday:

    "I think it's ******ed," Flacco, a native of New Jersey, told reporters on Monday after the Ravens arrived in New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII. "I probably shouldn't say that. I think it's stupid. If you want a Super Bowl, put a retractable dome on your stadium. Then you can get one.

    "Other than that, I don't really like the idea. I don't think people would react very well to it, or be glad to play anybody in that kind of weather." Read more...

    Well good news for him is he likely won't be there to play in it anyway. And if he is...then it's still good news cause then "he'll HAVE to play in it"...hopefully against the Giants.

        i saw that. im surprised it wasnt a hot topic around here. ddnt he actually call it moronic or stupid or something and then immediatly back track?

        ud think he'd be bright enough to realize he plays in an outdoor stadium in the cold weather we play in. if balt was to make it vs a dome team, lets say NO, doesnt flacco get that balt would have the advantage? and since he plays in cold weather outdoor stadium, theres no way he could be at a disadvantage in an outdoor cold weather SB...def. odd thing from flacco to say

              yeah thats right. i was shocked he called it that. horrible thing to say imo...he backtracked right after he said it bc he knew it wasnt p.c....

              and he also aint thinking bout the fans all that much either bc i know a lot of fans like myself, would love to see a SB played in the conditions, like snow...

                For a guy who just won at Denver and at New England in January he sure has a misconception of how cold it gets in New Jersey.
                I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

                  Even more odd since he grew up here (NJ)

                    I can't stand Flacco, all the hype about this guy and his multiple playoff appearances. Everybody knows it's their defense that always has them in contention.

                      Flacco is a slightly better version of Mark Sanchez

                          February is a real crap shoot as far as the weather goes. You can get 58 degrees, like today, or frigid conditions. But it's football, it can be played at Green Bay in -34 degrees in the snow or in Arizona in the 100s. So why not NY?

                            Their offense has been playing really well lately.

                              Flacco has played lights out this playoff. I don't get these guys.
                              I mean...comparing him to Mark Sanchez?

                              C'mon people.
