Yeah, I'm sure this is all one big huge orchestration by Roger Goodell to stick it to the Patriots. That one whole year he spent interning for the Jets created such a hatred of New England that he decided to become commissioner so he could exact his revenge.
Heck, he even brainwashed Bob Kraft into voting for it!
I love this decision for a whole bunch of reasons:
1) Contrary to the above post, it does
increase the chances, however slim, that Gillette gets a future Super Bowl.
2) I love hearing the media whine and cry like a bunch of little girls
3) Football should be played outside in the elements. I am sick of the over-sanitizing of the game every year for the Super Bowl.
4) Unless Gillette does indeed get a Super Bowl, this is likely the closest it will ever be to where I live. For the first time in my life, it is entirely realistic to do a day trip to the NFL Experience (NOTE: Yes, I know they've had the "NFL Experience" in Massachusetts, but speaking as someone who went to that exhibition as well as to a Super Bowl "NFL Experience" trust me when I say they are not the same).
