Why February Is The Perfect Month For The Super Bowl?
For some reason, the Super Bowl is always held in a different year each year. This has become somewhat of a problem for the NFL and as a result the Super Bowls is being held in either January or February. Luckily, one group is looking to change that and is looking into having the next Super Bowl held in January.
One big concern when it comes to hosting a Super Bowl is the cold weather. Having an outdoor event in cold weather can be quite dangerous. Many times people will lose their sense of direction and they can even become confused due to their inability to see very well. Of course with football, these accidents happen all too often.
While this sounds like one of those extreme things that can happen during the game, it is not unheard of. What if this type of accident could be prevented by having the Super Bowl plays in a cold climate? This would take away a huge threat to the safety of the fans.
Another reason why the Super Bowl should be held in cold weather is because it takes away the element of surprise. If you have ever watched a normal game of football, you know how much a person can get lost just because they are not seeing the field properly. When the Super Bowl is played outdoors, it is much easier to find your seat because the players are facing the right direction.
Even though these elements will still take place, they are much more likely to occur because they are no longer under the natural elements. When the field is covered with snow, it makes the game much easier to view and makes the actual game a lot safer. When the field is covered with ice, it is much harder to see the field and players on the field are constantly sliding around causing collisions that can lead to many serious injuries.
While the natural elements are also considered a threat, there is not enough time to clear away all of the ice on the field. So the cold weather could actually be a benefit as it causes everyone to make more mistakes. Even though the potential for injury is higher in cold weather, it is much less serious and will not last as long as the ice would.
If the Super Bowl was to be played in cold weather, fans would be able to enjoy the game without worrying about a number of the problems. There would be fewer accidents and more of a competitive edge. The NFL would be a lot happier because the fans will appreciate them more and remember the game at a later date. Plus you could not tell a lot of people who were watching the game from the comfort of their living room by the terrible weather outside.
However, the cold weather could have another benefit. It would take away a big money source for the NFL. With the Super Bowl is the most watched event of the year, they will need all the money they can get and with the Super Bowl being held in the cold weather, they will need to sell more tickets if they want to stay in business.
