It's sort of a weird week to criticize the NFL for holding a Super Bowl outdoors in a cold-weather city for the first time in history, because this past weekend, with snow falling in more than a handful of NFL stadiums, we had the most entertaining and enjoyable NFL Sunday of the year.
But that isn't stopping FOX NFL Sunday analyst Terry Bradshaw from railing against the league's decision to give Super Bowl XLVIII to North Jersey, which just happens to be televised on Fox.
“Thank you commissioner, thank you Super Bowl committee for putting us in New York,” Bradshaw said on WFAN Wednesday, according to the station's website. “And we all know why we’re in New York, it’s because they were paid for that stupid stadium in New Jersey … By the way, not a gorgeous stadium either.
“It’s freakin’ outside in New York, are you kidding me? Not even New York — New Jersey. It’s not like Minnesota, it’s a dome. It’s not like it’s Detroit, it’s a dome. It’s not like it’s Indy, it’s a dome. I don’t want it to be bad, cause I’m there. I want it to be nice, but I don’t think you should be putting Super Bowls in northern cities in the winter time.”no comments
