Four Southern Cities as finalist for Superbowl 2009

Sorry if the article seems one sided, but it was taken from the Houston Chronicle.


Houston among four finalists for 2009 Super Bowl
By CARLTON THOMPSON
Copyright 2004 Houston Chronicle

The NFL was so impressed by the show Houston put on for Super Bowl XXXVIII that commissioner Paul Tagliabue vowed the game would return to the city. It might happen as early as 2009.

Houston, Atlanta, Miami and Tampa Bay have been selected as finalists to host Super Bowl XLIII. Jacksonville, Detroit, Miami and Phoenix will host the next four games.

The 2009 site will be awarded at a meeting of the league owners in May.

"There's still a lot of work to do, but we're as pleased as we can be to be among the finalists," Reliant Park president Shea Guinn said. "You'd like to think the success we had here last time would help push us to the forefront to have this opportunity."

That's one hell of a list. I think Miami will be out though simply because they get it in 2007.

Has Seattle hosted a game yet? It should get one, IMO.
GO HOUSTON!

I mentioned that not to long ago in another thread. I agree.

Did you forget where Seattle is? I didn't, I lived there for a lot of the last 12 years.

The NFL will never gamble that a Winter day in Seattle will not contain rain.

Not to be messy or anything, but just curious, why would they pick Charlotte?

Arlington's earliest chance will be 2010 or 2011.

Jax stepped up to the plate and did what it had to do to get the game, regardless of how others may feel about it. Detroit, Houston & Phoenix have done the same. I expect many nay-sayers will be impressed by what Jax has up its sleeves. If Charlotte or any other NFL city really wants the game, go for it. The worst they could say is no.

Texasboy, Detroit has a dome man. They offer an already-approved exception to outdoor temps - a dome.
