1) Amenities like sky boxes and private restaurants so they won't have to subject themselves to mingling with the yeoman slobs who occupy the cheap seats. Who would want to rub elbows with a bunch of ill-mannered working class losers? C'mon, man, this is America!!! Get with the fucking program!!!
2) Corporate sponsors want these events to be held in as big an arena as possible to sell as many tickets as possible, despite the fact that when you host a basketball tournament in a domed stadium, 90% of the seats are so bad you might as well watch the game from the fucking Moon. Some seats are so far away from the action you couldn't tell who was playing with a Hubble telescope.
3) Warmth. Football is a man's sport played by men in all weather conditions. The corporate bitch-asses who write off their weekend bacchanals on their expense accounts want none of this. They want to watch football in an indoor, temperature-controlled sarcophagus with all the amenities of home, with the exception of the wife and kids. You can't have a cocaine and hooker Superbowl party with Blanche screaming at you to watch the fucking meatloaf before it burns.
New York City is the perfect place to host such festivals of avarice, greed and gratuitous gluttony. Plenty of fancy hotels, an eclectic nightlife, prostitutes galore and more importantly, plenty of dark alleys to vomit and shit on yourself in public after a night of binge drinking. A sports fans' dream come true.
This costume won't work if he was outside freezing-
Chicks dig the long ball, especially indoors!!!
Let's put that money to better use, like feeding it to corporate fat cats who deserve the best we can provide them, which in this case should be a publicly financed domed stadium. They deserve it, and so does the great city of New York, especially in these harsh economic times with so many assholes out of work. We really should be providing more for the corporate elites to make sure their comfort level never stoops to unacceptable levels. We owe them that much. The rest of us can do what we always do and just watch our teams on television-that's if we can afford cable TV by the time this happens.
