Goodell doesn't rule out more chilly Super Bowl sites

Beautiful conditions on Super Bowl Sunday in February 2014 could determine whether or not another big game is held in an outdoor stadium in a cold-weather environment.

Commissioner Roger Goodell, speaking after delivering the commencement speech Saturday at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell, didn’t rule out another outdoor adventure in the cold. But it sounds like no decisions on another one will be made until after Super Bowl XLVIII. Rain and 35 degrees that day might ensure it never happens again.

"New York is a very unique opportunity for us," Goodell said. "It's the largest media market and home to two NFL teams. Let's see how the success is in New York and we'll go from there."

There are a couple of interesting options if the NFL were to consider it. New England owner Robert Kraft pushed hard for the New York Super Bowl. Did he do so thinking his turn would be next? Washington owner Daniel Snyder has expressed a desire to get a Super Bowl. Philadelphia would be an interesting option. Pretty much anywhere but sending the Super Bowl back to Jacksonville would be an interesting idea.
