It's usually not that hot around AFC championship time. Early games in the season are more effected by the heat.

I don't think it's that much of a factor at all in the AFC Championship since it's pretty cold around that time anyway.

by the end of the 2nd qrt. they arent worth a dime, any team coming down here in sept. or oct. is in an automatic disadvantage b\c of the heat. thats why we wear white at home early in the season:up:

I don't even think it's that bad at all even for a snow team like them because even though they are used to being in the cold weather it's alot easier to play in warm weather.

They could wear speedos and they'd still be sweating bullets. It's hot in the early season. Crazy Vietnam hot. :fire:

home field advantage is a myth pure and simple

I wish you were making the pointspreads. Especially in basketball. I wouldn't have to work anymore.

Hey, I grew up in Miami and played all the outdoor playground sports in the humidity for 15+ years. I thought I was acclimated to it for life. But after going to school in California and living in Nevada for the bulk of the past 20 years I'm system shocked while spending August and early September in Miami now. I'm drenched head to toe after a simple round of golf. The last couple of years it's been near agony while attending early season Canes games, and I'm talking under the overhang. Don't underestimate our advantage early in the year, say all of September thru the first couple weeks of October, especially 1 PM kickoffs.
