    With the resent stadium issue i'm not sure that they really want a superbowl. Getting one takes away most of their leverage.

    The carrier and zip lines would be a blast if it comes to pass.

    I would go to Miami, just for the extra activities, even if I couldn't afford SB tickets...

    Maybe Ross will buy the aircraft carrier and the Dolphins will play all their games off the coast of Miami from now on...

    Fans can get to the stadium via helicopter, jetski, boat or zipline!

    What is the urgency now to get a Super Bowl in Miami from a dolphins perspective? They way I understand it is that all nfl teams split the Super Bowl revenue..makes no sense

    If you don't see the calamity in this now I doubt anything any of us say will change your opinion! But hey this is like Starship Troopers meets Thunder Dome it is not cool it is dreaming fantastic! Good luck getting the FAA to sign off on the Floating footballs full of people.

    How embarrassing! I have a idea let put Ross and Dee in one of those footballs and lose the anchor!

    What the heck would the FAA have to do with the floating football ride? Am I crazy? I can't figure that out!

    That's pretty out-of-the-box. Sounds like quite the spectacle. Only thing I am not clear on is where the actual fans will sit. There's not a ton of space left over on the deck of an aircraft carrier after you carve out the field of play and the sideline space. I also imagine they would have to lay some pretty thick sod, or the players are going to get ground into hamburger when they get tackled.

    You want to charge people money and float them in the air you can guarantee the government will be involved and most likely that's the FAA. Remove the anchor will the footballs float away? If the answer is yes it's a dirigible and it will require certification. Do you really think on a stage as big as the Superbowl you can just float tens of thousands of people in a what is essentially a transparent blimp without certification?

    Damn, if they could pull that off it would be the greatest superbowl week ever.

    The actual game will be played at Sun Life, lol. The floating football field would probably just be for fan events during Super Bowl week and maybe a celebrity all-star flag football game or something.

    I thought it was a zipline, not a balloon. Sounded more like a ski lift.

    The one thing Ross doesnt want now is a superbowl awarded because then it negates that arguement on superbowls.

    It's my understanding that this is on a zipline. It's just like the skylift at an amusement park. I just don't see that needing FAA approval!!! It sounds fairly interesting to me!
