Quarterback from ravens' Joseph Flacco said he thinks it's stupid to to have the Super Bowl went cold weather. Should be elements be a factor in the biggest game in sports and -- so you're saying yes it showed it was invented outside it was played outside. I I own I know that they call a game because a lightning. And that's about it. Otherwise it's strictly and maybe maybe golf ball sized hail from those well with a colorful ball game and they do for lightning because lightning strikes me funny between them. And -- won't know. Not rain not snow they had the fall game they have the ice bowl that they talked about I would think big chunks of ice I was say. Yet what their -- I'm not you -- Let the rest are wearing helmets -- if you got golf balls I've got good solid quarter sized hail falling in the refs aren't out there Wear helmets on.

Tennessee we are gonna give away for tickets don't forget that also when you go to WW dot com. Right there at the top of the page is a big yellow banner everything you need to know. To function with the Super Bowl in town all week long if you wanna get closer or you wanna stay out of away. All the information you need is right there at the top of the -- get back your phone calls while we can. And see if we can make this thing work here. Are pretty opinion poll at WW ought to come ravens quarterback Joseph Flacco said he thinks it's stupid. To have the super bowl -- cold weather should be elephants be a factor in the biggest game of sports let's go to Josh. Who is on line on their click that button right there areas they just tell you don't thanks for calling them. Complete and then back north and actually that's expense to cost us thirty armed. Yeah well you know I -- we are -- whether -- the -- or any possibility of cold water. That takes away the advantage for some -- I mean yeah I don't seem like the -- to the stop it and then. You know that they don't they -- the first -- and -- on the -- in the playoffs mean I don't think it's -- Pittsburgh and play and love the cold weather as they got possible angle he accused of that. But you also have to play those teams to get to the Super -- -- should it make any difference I mean. Should the -- -- team should win everywhere -- Well I mean I don't go to bed so that's good at the rewards for doing what I'm legacies and I don't think it changed that a talk started on the standard new war. That aren't neutral site you all my -- which included. Well you know what if you wanna do a neutral site game. Why don't they do that while they do to Super Bowl in Hawaii instead of the probable. Well that's because gonna take -- -- nearly every morning. We'll look at look at your -- on a repetitive comments of a. I want to come every year but I mean if you talk -- natural if you talk about a neutral spot. Let's go someplace. Where there isn't. Whether -- entertainment -- cities with you know. I mean the Tiger Stadium seats 95200000. People Alabama Tuscaloosa they -- a 1101000 people around. That there are more people a bad game at Madison overall. Obviously they should -- what are the sound like Miami New Orleans maybe they're Diego's sentences outs Mike Babcock the outside but don't have that other. And his guarantee that you put aside your rotation and I think that should benefit in which closely with groups that wouldn't and Cleveland's well I'm not well. The thing evidence Cleveland hands that they have of a football team. I mean they're they're -- Austin, Texas did not have a football team so they're -- they -- not even in the running to begin with right if all they do. What would -- argument for the always they conducted outside in cold weather. Body English people have been should have you NBA finals and an agenda that revenue is seeking those investors that makes you look around and. And you know the centrist think the thing of it is though. I mean look but I guess how many different cities are an. Let me again state that. We throw the best Super Bowl party period in the store so they wanna have been here every year I think a lot of people would be happy especially us. Bought that being said how many cities out there and states out there who host football union's. When you know they get some kind of tax break or they bill helping build a stadium or something like that and they're sitting there going where shoot. The Super Bowl comes to town council for 500 million dollar boost to the city's economy man how come we got a piece that pot -- -- cut out of the running. Except for the 45 teams you know. But we just mentioned before our series we just mention all the rest them all the rest of the owners get together gone from where whereas my -- -- -- you don't know them. When I don't even get out and give it get the lick the spoon after a good sign in the running to begin -- My Apollo Group yeah I guess that's what more biased as we are down here both now nor on if you looked at most women these. Commentators -- -- these -- major media networks talked about your beloved man. I mean I don't think we should -- -- -- eleven years like we have been I mean I think it should be every three or four years I mean your that it would have been and so that's my opinion and. As an excellent pay and look again -- which show it you know what everybody who's ever come here who has anything to do -- it. It's it's not a hard sell you got to meet a certain set -- standards we had a problem with the contract we have with the saints. We had a problem because a Katrina put the -- back to put in the city back in a bunch of us up but we come back. We're ready we host the best parties in the world into storage they know it. All we gotta do is make sure while -- here in town right now let's just everybody do what we do best don't don't nobody you know. Don't drama on the curb if you see Roger Goodell and -- like that either give him shake his hand and say thanks for comment. Like you would any other tourist who comes here or just completely Norman walk down the other way. But either way this is all a big audition for us to get it back in 28 team and they have it here for the 300 anniversary is going to be huge. That's -- I think will be getting a lot more especially hello Katrina thing that went off the -- -- But I couldn't what one I'm not sure what to Gertrude that there will be no actually got a.

I thank you for tanking my -- yeah sure I want to dip but my 1% and and went she knows. -- what I think about the civil both and I think it should red -- may be among 45. Cities that have domes stadiums. And would do you think the other. Super Bowl -- the other football towns would be agreeable to that or would they -- Some kind of piece of the pie in exchange for taken themselves completely out of the running forever. I'm sure things can be negotiated. I would say so that's probably much what they do most of the time I'm just -- more than negotiation -- I know Mitch Landrieu. And whoever is the governor this state in this and though the mayor this city. If back tennis that you I'm sure they would welcome it. But I'm I'm sure they also stepped right -- the very beginning going -- get like a piece of our pride you may have talked to mr. Benson yup and -- to negotiate that deal. Will be glad to hosted on a regular rotating basis but we giving none of it. You know that that's just I know they don't negotiate that would. But I you know what I I could very well be wrong but which city do you think besides us. I think probably. Hit the San Diego with a beautiful area. It is going. I can't tell -- in that. Happy you don't wanna keep it in just one area for five times -- you say it spread it out a little bit. I don't have a problem with. And rebound them and Arizona have a down. Phoenix I think they can close the compliment him. Yeah and I thought that would be another option. I and then it the whole idea because the win the super goggle is big and did he need to stay away from. Extreme. Adverse weather conditions. I'm with John Allen and I think most people aren't frankly everybody who's ever been to a Super Bowl down here. -- says the same thing you know when it went -- a few months from now. You know when the weather starts to warm up anyway they may think a little bit differently but in the meantime they gonna come down here ago.
