Battle for Super Bowl 50: DFW vs. L.A.?

Almost from the get-go, the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee has been angling for multiple Super Bowls at Cowboys Stadium, beginning with the 50th anniversary game in 2016. But now, ESPN reports, DFW has a serious rival for that game in Los Angeles, which may have the better shot at landing it. The first Super Bowl was played in 1967 at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. And plans have just been unveiled for a new Tinseltown stadium called Farmers Field, which is taking its cues from Cowboys Stadium. Maybe Jerry & Co. should pray for an earthquake?

  1. Having Super Bowl L in Dallas would be like having the 25th Summer Olympiad in Atlanta. Oh wait…

  2. They do need a team first, as the NFL doesn’t hold Super Bowls in non-NFL cities.

    Sorry, Jacksonville.
