Terry Bradshaw blasts New Jersey Super Bowl


The next Super Bowl will be held in “New York” at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. The cold weather bowl has drawn some criticism saying that weather could impact the game. That was highlighted even more following a snowy week in the NFL. The Super Bowl will be broadcast by FOX and on of their analysts, Terry Bradshaw, is not a fan.

“Thank you Commissioner, thank you Super Bowl committee for putting us in New York,” Bradshaw said during his weekly appearance with Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts of WFAN radio in New York.  “And we all know why we’re in New York, it’s because they overpaid for that stupid stadium in New Jersey. . . .  By the way, not a gorgeous stadium either.

“It’s freakin’ outside in New York, are you kidding me?  Not even New York — New Jersey.  It’s not like Minnesota, it’s a dome.  It’s not like it’s Detroit, it’s a dome.  It’s not like it’s Indy, it’s a dome. . . .  I don’t want it to be bad, ’cause I’m there.  I don’t want it to bad, I want it to be nice, but I don’t think you should be putting Super Bowls in northern cities in the winter time.”

“You should be in Florida or California or Arizona, where there [are] no excuses,” Bradshaw said.  “What if the Saints make it there?  What if Seattle [qualifies]. . . .  Teams that run the football will have a bigger advantage than teams that throw the football.  What if we get two passing teams?  What if they get Denver there?  What if it’s pouring down snow?  You get a bad game.”
