Should the NFL hold the Super Bowl in colder cities? Super Bowl committee tables idea for now

DENVER - The NFL has tabled discussions, for now, on whether to hold the Super Bowl in another cold weather city like Denver, according to Mike Klis with the Denver Post.

"Super Bowl committee tabled discussion on outdoor stadium/cold weather cities like Denver till NFL spring meetings in May," Klis tweeted.

New York/New Jersey hosted the Super Bowl in February. While temperatures were nice for the game, a snowstorm moved in after the game snarling traffic and the airports as fans were trying to leave the area.

That hasn't stopped several cold weather cities, without domed stadiums, to lobby the NFL to choose them as a Super Bowl city, according to CBS Sports.

CBS reported that the next four Super Bowls will be held in cities with warmer climates and/or domed stadiums -- Glendale, Ariz., (2015), Santa Clara, Calif. (2016), Houston (2017) and Indianapolis, Minneapolis or New Orleans (all domed stadiums)(2018).
