Hotels, weather are major obstacles to bringing Super Bowl to Kansas City from The Kansas City Star

For the better part of a year, Hunt has maintained that there are two major obstacles standing in the way. The first is the weather; while the NFL did host an outdoor cold-weather Super Bowl in 2014 (New York), it remains unclear when the owners might be willing to do so again.

The second issue, Hunt said, is the lack of high-quality four- and five-star hotels that can appropriately accommodate the large amount of starpower that would descend upon Kansas City during Super Bowl week.

If both issues can be satisfied somewhere down the road -€” and yes, there has been varying amount of progress made on both fronts -€” Hunt sees nothing standing in the way.

Good luck, Coach!

Bell Tolls: Noah Spence among most compelling players at combine from USA Today

Fresh cases like Manziel and Gregory, who had red flags revealed long before they were drafted, may be unrelated to Spence. But against the backdrop of an NFL environment where there is increased attention on off-the-field issues, they reinforce the risk attached to players with issues in their background.

"These guys are maturing and growing up in front of the world," Parker said.

Then he posed the questions the teams will ask themselves.

"Is this a guy who made a couple of bad decisions and can move on?" Parker said. "Or is this a character trait that represents a big risk?"

Super Bowl I rebroadcast had its flaws from Packers.com

Not only were the studio analysts - other than the game's participants - clueless about things like the rules, as you pointed out, but also the teams and the players. They didn't offer one bit of insight as to why the Packers won other than that they had more experience. Here's what I'd add to your points. Offensively, the Packers clearly built their game plan around two things. They exploited Kansas City's cornerbacks, particularly Willie Mitchell, in the passing game; and they pounded away at the right side of the Chiefs' defensive line. According to the official play-by-play, Jim Taylor ran left on 12 of his 17 runs and the halfbacks ran left on seven of 15 attempts. Clearly, the Packers were attacking the Chiefs' right end, Chuck Hurston, who stood 6-6 and weighed less than 225 pounds by that point in the season, according to several of his teammates. Steve Mariucci noted once or twice when Taylor ran left that it was the Packers' famous sweep, but that was an oversimplification and not entirely accurate.

How is your relationship with Cairo Santos (Brazilian Kansas City Chiefs, NFL)? As local media affects his work and his?

I had the opportunity to visit Cairo. He was in the stadium [the Kansas City Royals] in the preseason of them, because sometimes does not match our season to season them, when we are in a place he is in another state. When he went there the press was also recorded, he made a visit there. He was even more harassed by our players accompanying the NFL, because football is the main sport, more followed in the United States. But it was nice to have met him, know that he is Brazilian and is also a hit in the same city where I started to open my doors. After I found it more, but I intend to find it again when you come back and congratulate the season he had.
