Terry Bradshaw rips into Super Bowl being played outdoors in New Jersey


There are many supporters of this year's Super Bowl being played outdoor at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. However, legendary quarterback and broadcaster Terry Bradshaw is not among them.

This is what the boisterous Bradshaw had to say while appearing in his weekly segment with Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts of WFAN in New York:

“Thank you Commissioner, thank you Super Bowl committee for putting us in New York,” Bradshaw said. “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.”



Whoa.

Bradshaw also noted the possibility of the weather playing a role in the outcome of the game.

“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.”

How do you feel about the Super Bowl being played outdoors?

  1. Shut up bradshaw. You're pissed because YOU will have to be outside, with your Fox cronnies, for hours, reporting on shit like "What the qb's had for breakfast, and what the running back's wives are wearing for the game". No one watches 8 hours of SB pregame anyway. Bet if the steelers had a chance to be there, your tone wouldn't be the same.

    3. This is the first and last time it will be played there. Mark my words. It's going to be a clustereff with all the limitations of transportation, no tailgating, etc.

    4. ITS VERY VERY STUPID TO PLAY THE SUPER BOWL OUTDOORS & ITS MORE STUPID TO PLAY IT IN EITHER THAT NASTY NEW YORK OR NEW JERSEY. WHOEVER THOUGHT OF THIS STUPID IDEA SHOULD BE GIVEN 20 YEARS IN PRISON. IT SUCKS & ITS SO FUCKIN STUPID.

    5. JUST TO COMMENT ON THAT STUPID ASSHOLE CHARLES BARKLEY. HE HAS ALWAYS HATED ON LEBRON JAMES B/C HE NEVER GOT A RING IN ALL THE YEARS THAT HE PLAYED & FOR ALL THE TEAMS HE PLAYED FOR HE DIDN OT MAKE THE DIFFERENTS. I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY HE"S ON TV ALL HE DOES IS MAKE NEGATIVE STATEMENTS & COMMENTS ABOUT OTHER NBA PLAYERS THAT WERE WAY BETTER THAN HE WAS. LETS TALK ABOUT HIM SPITTING ON A KID IN THE STANDS OR PICKING UP A PROSTITUTE. HE" A ASSHOLE WITH A CAPITAL (A) & WILL ALWAYS WILL BE & HE"S A FAILURE B/C HE HAS NO CHAMPIONSHIP RINGS TO SHOW FOR ALL THE YRS THAT HE PLAYED. A STUPID SPEAKING FAT ASSHOLE.

    6. I am just a mere fan, and could not agree more on what Barkley said only he was too polite. James is the ideal I-ME. I want the ring for me. Not for Cleveland screw the fans. I personally wish the fans would quit attending or watching the spoiled, egotistic I me jerks. If James were worth a salt he would have played his heart out for Cleveland. He is nothing but a I- Me deal cutter.

  2. I don't like the idea of a Superbowl being held outdoors in a cold weather city. I want to see the players at their best, while the conditions are the best. I don't want to see weather help decide who wins and who loses.

    1. What about the fans, you kiwis. They're paying up to 4k for tickets. Let's see how long that lasts, when they get a game, featured by 10" of snow, ice, rain.

  3. Playing out in the elements is true football the way it was always played before soft turf, warm air . Be serious the game between the Eagles and Detroit lions was fantastic this year . You just like being pampered you now have tons of money and don't feel you should be treated like normal people your to high above that . Look I wouldn't want to see anyone get hurt but really think back to the real football days of snow ,rain wind, let them play like men not a rich people who believe this is below there standard of living. Pretty soon it will be tag I got you no more tackle it may give you a mark there men tough men playing a tough sport suck it up and try to do your cushy job and leave football to the elements

    1. So should Hockey be banned from the U.S. because it's too warm? Or should they play all games outside like in the good old days? Very weak argument you got going here. Why do people think it was always played in cold weather? Nothing could be farther from the truth.

  4. Football has been played in the outdoors for years. The NFL championships have mostly been played in the winter, outdoors, there were no domes to keep the temperature warm and fuzzy inside. We progressed the wrong way, not in conditioning players to play in all types of circumstances and weather, but to cry about every little thing that is changed or messed with to get the public more interested in the game. I believe strongly that some of the changes have to be rescinded to allow the game to progress and remain America's sport. Right now, the voices that be are killing it. Let's get back to the Cloth helmets, no face guards (Less face masking) and hits between the shoulders and the thighs (yes thighs not knees) and the game will progress with minor injuries. Oh yeah, Pad the cloth helmets and make them waterproof. Play in the snow, in the rain, in the freezing ice like it was meant to be player.

    1. Who says it was meant to be played in bad weather? Nobody that's who. Stop spreading lies.

    2. Uh, since the football season is Sept - January, most of it is in WINTER. I don't think the season was set up this way to get around golf season.

      Delete
    3. Most of it??? OK, you mentioned 5 months, only 2 are in the winter buddy. And where I come from golf season is year round. How many games played in January again? So, almost all of the season is not in winter, just the very end and playoffs. If you would look at the beginnings of the NFL you would see that no regular season games were ever played in the winter months until expansion.

    4. So says someone who won't be there and never played in a blizzard.i'll bet your couch has a permanent divot from your giant butt sitting on it. the peanut gallery is always going on and on about how wimpy today's players are, this is a precision game played by top athletes who shouldn't have to play in less than ideal conditions. So we should just give the cold weather teams an advantage? based on what? your giant gut feeling?

  5. Then why don't the BCS games move to cold weather cities? Answer: because it's f-ing stupid, if you were giving a choice everyone would choose a dome or warm weather city. I hope the NFL isn't doing this for all the wrong reasons, so we should see one in Seattle next, right? It's a much nicer stadium anyway.

    Hey, let's move the pro bowl to Alaska.

  6. a few comments - BCS games need the weather so people will travel to the games. Most colleges have a weak fan base when it comes to that so you need to make it as attractive as possible. don't be fooled by the NFL. If this game is even close to being successful you know that every cold weather/outdoor team - the Pats, the Bears, the Packers etc are going to want to host. be prepared!!

  8. and the Superbowl costs way too much money for me to be sitting OUTDOORS in bad weather or freezing cold!!! I am from the South...and that is why I live in the South...and the big money people who go to the Superbowl don't want to be out in the weather to watch this game...half of the fun is all the stuff that takes place around the Superbowl as well...who the hell wants to go into snow? Not me...I will miss this one thank you!

  9. People travel for the Super Bowl - the weather is not enough of a deterrent to affect the gate!

    1. Bradshaw only thinks about the Browns slamming his head into Cleveland turf, keep it outside. That's real football and players. Go DAWGS!

  10. Terry is right, it should either be in a dome or warm weather stadium, there is a huge half time show to deal with as well !

  13. superbowl game should played in doors in winter time not up north jb tampa fl

  14. How many "normal" people attend to Super Bowl? Corporate rich people are the ones-any Super Bowl played in NY & NJ is a way to pump up ticket prices, concessions, parking, etc.
    Bad move, we need warm weather Super Bowls, what idiot made this call? More importantly how much bribe money changed hands - if you think it didn't I will sell you a bridge in Brooklyn-

  16. Had the Super Bowl Committee considered the CUSTOMER (the fan), they would have put the game in a location where the CUSTOMER (fan) would have the most enjoyable experience watching the NFL showcase the 2 top teams under the best conditions compete for the honor of Super Bowl Champion. Simply - play in a DOME in WARM weather!!!

  17. Terry is 100% right, its absolutely idioitic to have the Super Bowl where a freakin storm can ruin the game, and more probable than not weather will be a factor and the stadium looks like it sucks. The weather will decide who wins and who loses...

  18. Football has always been played outside in the elements and it always should be.Should we start playing all baseball games inside to?! I mean the wind can affect a fly ball and change the out come of a game or the sun may be to bright! Seriously...wtf? All these candy ass people spoiled by their perfect weather in their dooms and ideal conditions....FUCK THAT! Play the game the way it has been played for years....OUTSIDE!!!! Hey terry ask one of your ex-wives to give you at least one of your balls back so you can reattach it and shut the fuck up!!! I had the unpleasant experience of meeting Terry Bradshaw once....Take it from me if you ever have the same chance DON'T!!!! He's the biggest fucking ass hole there is. He acts like your below him and your not worth his time. Hey ass hole! If it wasn't for the fans you would be fucked! You should be appreciative of that shit not look down on them like they are a waste of your time you fucktard! As for the super bowl I'm happy it's outside and I don't mind if it goes back and forth from being inside and outside but I hope this year terry you freeze your fucking ass off and I will enjoy every fucking second of watching you freeze you fucking ass hole! GO PACKERS!

  19. Dear Mr Bradshaw, allow me to call the whaambulance for you sir. Big deal if the game is outside. Doesn't anyone remember the Ice Bowl (Dallas-Green Bay game...1966?). Terry, just talk about the game. That's what you get paid for, not to spout your opinion on anything else. Too cold for you? Tough crap dude. Go buy some hand and foot warmers, get a nice coat that i'm sure you can well afford, due to your ridiculous salary and do your job. Tell you what I'll come and do your job for the day as long i can get the same pay (which i'm sure is pretty good) to do nothing except to talk about the game.

  20. Couldn't agree more with Bradshaw. Yes, I know, in the good ole' days, football was played in the mud, ice, snow and blood. The forward pass was a secondary offensive weapon at best. I played in a some heavy snow and bitterly cold games in college. The result wasn't true football, but survival. Times have changed and players have changed. Football today is more about skill and ability rather than who can hang on to a wet football in a frozen tundra. I for one want to see a game won by the best team rather than the elements. Face it, having a Super Bowl in New York was simply a kiss-up, political move by the NFL -- but nothing new there.

  21. I 100% agree with Bradshaw. He's got it spot on. The whole thing is totally stupid. I understand that Football was originally an outdoor sport and intended to be played in the elements. But, TECHNOLOGY changed all of that. Playing this game in totally predictable inclement weather makes about as much sense as requiring all reporters to use typewriters and attendees to use pay telephone booths and to arrive on horseback. STUPID - JUST PLAIN STUPID. And, for what? To throw NY a few sheckels because of 911 & Sandy? .Like NY really needs it. Or is it that NFL Hqtrs resides there? Another BONEHEAD move by the Commish.
