Look ... I fully get that they are taking one extra small gamble here than they are when they hold it in a dome or the south, but I'm thinking it's a risk that is being A) blown out of proportion, and B) going to provide a decent reward at the end. I think its going to be a success.
We'll see, I guess. But the logistics will be the most difficult ever, even without bad weather. The game is being marketed as a NY Super Bowl when, in reality, it is 15-20 miles away from midtown Manhattan in North Jersey. The parking lot around the stadium will be used almost strictly for high-end hospitality tents and such so there will be no parking nearby. They will have remote parking where they will charge a minimum of $50 to take a bus from a lot that will charge upwards of $100. Buses from midtown Manhattan the day of the game will cost a mortgage payment. I love visiting NY, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere near it that week, even if my team was in the game.
This will be a very costly event, beyond the means of most football fans.
