Jerry Jones reacts to NYC Super Bowl
By Calvin Watkins
Jerry Jones supported the bid for the New York/New Jersey area to host Super Bowl XLVII. Jets owner Woody Johnson and several members of the Giants organization shook Jones' hand and thanked him for his vote.
"In particular, it's the Giants and the Jets [and] New York, then I can reconcile that in the fact we may have that Super Bowl decided, really very much the same way in getting there that is is decided," Jones said. "You have to play games in the elements and they [would have] some sleet and snow to do that. I think the fact, we have such a great fan base in New York, new stadium and the kind of effort these teams went to I think its fitting."
As far as other East Coast, or, rather, cold-weather cities asking to host the Super Bowl in the future, Jones didn't sound confident another city would get it.
"We extended ourselves real good and made a pretty big commitment so that we would not be a cold-weather city when it came to a Super Bowl or playing our ballgames," Jones said, alluding to his thought process on building Cowboys Stadium. "I'm not going to worry about that because of what we do to get out of the weather."
