Is There Any Hope For The Super Bowl?
The Super Bowl will be the last one to have more than two competing teams and that is fine with most NFL owners. There were many times when this is how the games were in the past and maybe it would be even better if it was back that way again, but right now there are more issues than just that to worry about.
Having a friend to show up at your house and then there will be all the cameras and reporters and photographers to bring their own Super Bowl. That’s the other thing they’re worried about. Of course, we’ll have three more to go before that Super Bowl, but one of those will have to be on the same day of the week as the other two.
They also talk about the increased cost of the game. It used to be that the Super Bowl was very expensive and there weren’t as many people paying any attention to it as the NFL did. Now, more people are getting involved and buying tickets for the Super Bowl than ever before. Many of them just don’t even realize they are doing it.
Then there is the travel that the NFL has to deal with while the football season is still going on. The playing field doesn’t stop once the season ends and it doesn’t when the NFL is playing. That means that they have to spend more money to travel. Traveling is not cheap and it isn’t like they can just go and get another hotel room that is a few blocks away from their home.
Owners are concerned that they aren’t going to be able to provide the events the fans want to see. There will still be the traditional owners’ meeting and luncheons and such, but those won’t be happening for most of the time.
Owners are really upset about the fact that they can’t get to every home game. They want to see all oftheir home games and in many cases they are being forced to choose between watching those home games or going to one of the games that is being played at one of the other stadiums.
Owners are very interested in staying connected to the fans and they want to keep them informed of what is going on with the league. They are worried that the Super Bowl is going to lead to less fan interaction.
