Goodell: Blackout won't hurt NOLA's chances for a future SuperBowl

Well, coming from the mouth of the czar himself...

Super Bowl 2013 -- Blackout won't hurt New Orleans' future bids, Roger Goodell says - ESPN

Roger Goodell said:
"Going forward, I don't think this will have any impact at all on what I think will be remembered for one of the greatest Super Bowl weeks."

I can't see how one technical snafu that has also happened in such high-profile venues as Candlestick park and the site of next year's Ice Bowl could detract from an otherwise stellar performance by the city of New Orleans.

That would be pretty stupid if NO was too loss hosting the SB because of an outage?? It could have happened any where and I did get a good chuckle out of it. Laugh every time I see that picture of SP holding that screwdriver in front of that breaker box!! :smilielol:

Halftime show was produced by NFL. It's their fault.

You were expecting us to host another next yr? Lmao! Come on! It's only a matter of time before we host another and you have to put in bids. Not like they resort back to same city within 5 yrs. it takes at least a decade.

The NFL will never admit it, but they LOVED the blackout.

The game was a blowout. People were changing the channel. Advertisers were not happy.

Suddenly the blackout changed everything. Twitter blew up. People who would never watch the superbowl were talking about it to THEIR friends and tuning in just to see what was going on. Then the 49ers caught up and made it a game that went down to the wire.

The blackout probably made the NFL a ton of extra money.

There is a lot of truth in what you say. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if a "black out" happens in a future Super Bowl when it looks like a blow out is about to happen.:mwink:

Not true at all. There have been 47 Super Bowls, and that was the 10th time New Orleans has hosted one. So actually, we do average one every 5 years.

After the "White Out" next year from a foot of snow during the Super
Bowl game in their outdoor New Jersey stadium, the NFL will be begging for another "blackout" in an indoor stadium.
