Oh so you flew in for the game on Sunday but the weather is so bad we're pushing the SB back to Tuesday sorry for the inconvenience. But the game will be still be awesome in the snow dont you think?
Contingency plans, according to the Sports Business Journal, include moving gameday up a day or pushing it back a few days. Of particular concern to the NFL is the possibility of a paralyzing Nor’easter. “We have to look at all the angles: storm arriving day-of-game, storm arriving prior to game, storm arriving after game,” a source told Daniel Kaplan.
The game is scheduled for Feb. 2, and changing the date would cause all sorts of travel headaches for fans, who would be trying to reschedule flights with the possibility that flights could be canceled and the area’s three airports closed down. Moving the game up would be a problem as well because many fans arrive on the day of the game.
“You know it will be a lot cooler, but there will be a lot of people and transportation issues regardless,” Jeff Miller, NFL vice president of security, told SBJ. “When you have a lot of moving parts and large crowds, you are moving on transportation systems already overloaded with daily commuters, so you’ve got some issues to deal with.”
It's going to be a mess on the roads and at the train stations. They are eliminating 1/2 the parking to accommodate buses and television vans and eliminating drop off services. Mass transit might handle getting people to the game as people tend to stagger their arrival times but when the game is over it's going to compete chaos as drunken idiots fight to get to train stations and on trains back to their hotels, cars or airports.
I know what it's like after a crowded Jet game and a Springsteen concert, the SB will pale in comparison. You couldn't pay me enough to be there that day even if it is the Super Bowl.
