Packers Wouldn't Mind Hosting A Super Bowl Either

More and more teams are expressing interest in hosting a Super Bowl in light of the NFL owners awarding the 2014 game to a cold-weather city in New York.

This time around it's the Packers who appear to be intrigued by the idea. On Monday, SB Nation's Acme Packing Company passed along word that the Packers were indeed in favor of a cold-weather Super Bowl.

Since we've never had one it doesn't seem right to me though I've got nothing against cold weather playoff games. It would take away the neutral field, and luck becomes an even larger factor, which would disadvantage the favored team and make the two teams more equal. Of course the Packers are in favor of it.

Packers president Mark Murphy said on Wednesday that he would be interested in exploring a Green Bay Super Bowl.

Murphy says Wednesday depending on how the game goes in New York there may be other opportunities. He says hosting a Super Bowl in Green Bay is "very intriguing, but there are a lot of logistical requirements that need to be researched."

The obvious problem with Green Bay is size. It's just not that big of a city and there aren't enough hotel rooms to suffice the thousands upon thousands of people that would come in for the game. The closest city, Milwaukee, is almost two hours away.

It's a good idea in light of the New York Super Bowl vote but it just doesn't seem plausible.
