I'll give you the Banks. Even though they've broken ground, there's still plenty of issues that can spring up to cause problems. However, I would say that weather usually makes for a better game rather. Some of the greatest, most memorable games have been played in inclement weather. Meanwhile, the Super Bowl has often suffered from boring games and interesting commercials. I think that people would still pay big money to go. Sure, some of the people who go to see and be seen might not enjoy it as much, but I guarantee you most people would rather be at an exciting, memorable game in bad weather than a boring game in nice weather. In fact I find football to be at its best when it's played in the middle of a snow storm.
