The Super Bowl

Sometime today, NFL owners will select which city will win the right to host the 2011 Super Bowl. The three competing cities are Indianapolis, Dallas and Phoenix. Most pundits believe it will come down to either Indianapolis or Dallas.

Both cities are rolling out their top guns in support of their bid. Dallas has Roger Staubach and Indianapolis has Tony Dungy as lobbyists.

The Star's coverage: Irsay: Indy has 'waited our turn' for Super Bowl

The Dallas Morning News coverage: Indy stands in North Texas' way

Both articles seem to agree that Indianapolis has the advantage of a central downtown location for hotels and events surrounding the Super Bowl. The strongpoint for Dallas is that they will have 20,000 more seats in their stadium and at a projected 900 dollars a ticket that will generate a lot of revenue for the NFL.

Shame for Indianapolis.

NFL picked money. League has always been about money.

Indianapolis is about class.

No wonder they picked Jerry Jones over Tony Dungy.

It is a shame, but I'm not surprised. $$$: the official language of the United States of America.

As it should be.

The selfish pursuit of private profit is the noblest, most moral end an individual can pursue.
