Wonder if we could get in on that somehow since it will be a minute before we host another Super Bowl

Great a city that hates everyone should make this event awful
Not entirely true.

There are ranks of hate.

1. The Cowboys.
2. Everything else.

Actually, it's quite a nice place to live, and being a Saints fan here is great, you're sort of like a cousin, or Tom Hagen to the Corleones; I get a lot of props for being loyal and not being a front-runner. As I told Jeff Duncan years ago, when he was writing about ex-pat Saints fans in other cities: "Saints fan in Philly, it's like being a killer in a prison yard. Not too many friends, but you get your respect."

I think the city who's team wins the Super Bowl should host the following years draft. More incentives for cities to back their team.
I doubt they get the logistics worked out that quickly. Convention centers large enough could easily be booked for the weekend of the draft.. Then there could be an issue with enough available hotel rooms.

I'm sorry I guess I should clarify what I was thinking. The 2016 Super Bowl is actually played in 2017 so in my mind the following year would be 2018 which would give the winning teams home city over a year to prepare.

The fallacy here is that the Draft is an 'event'. As usual, the NFL wants to marketise and commoditise everything, including an administrative process.
