Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti spoke at length to season ticket holders in a fan forum on Tuesday. One of the many questions that Bisciotti answered dealt with Baltimore’s potential for hosting a Super Bowl.
The New Meadowlands Stadium, host of the Jets and Giants, won the bid for the 2014 Super Bowl despite being an open air stadium during the coldest part of winter. “We got to get through this New York one first,” Bisciotti said. “If they have bad weather, it might never come again. I’m not thrilled to have it in New York,” he said. Though it does seem like a bit of a gamble to host a Super Bowl in New York, it opens the potential for other stadiums around the country. “If it works…we’ll be in line like everyone else.”
Of course, if Baltimore had built a dome that would have never been an issue. But then again, would we really want to play indoors?
Better get another head coach , the one he has now is in way over his head , just like the GM………..
As to your last line, I may be in the minority, but I do wish Baltimore had built a dome. If you remember, the whole argument was that Baltimore football was meant to be played outside on REAL GRASS. That lasted about two years at PSI Net and the Ravens quickly learned how much more income they could make with lacrosse tourneys, U2 concerts, Kenny Chesney, all while having little risk on completely destroying the playing surface. Oh they made up some hokey story about the stadium sitting in a high water table and grass not growing, whatever, it was done to generate income. Now I’m not complaining, the Ravens are a business and businesses need to generate income, but had the Maryland Stadium Authority built a dome, Final Fours and a Super Bowl may have been in our fair city instead of some stupid Grand Prix race. I, for one, was in favor of the dome.
I agree with you,,,,,,,when you build a new stadium these days you have to give real consideration to a dome,,,,,,,just look at what Jerry Jones did in Dallas , that thing may just be the eight wonder of the world……….
