Why Super Bowl XLVIII in MetLife Stadium is Important to Panthers Fans:

When it was announced that Super Bowl XLVIII would be held in MetLife Stadium I ended up being, not only apprehensive, but appalled. Living in the Northeast during many Februaries, I can personally attest that no one should be playing football outside. Weather in this region is bad enough during December when games are still being played during the regular season at places such as Gillette Stadium, Ralph Wilson Stadium and the aforementioned MetLife Stadium, let alone in February when the winter weather is only worse.

The NFL obviously wanted to reward the Jets/Giants for building a new stadium by allowing them to host this game in their new stadium but at what cost to players playing in the biggest game of the year? With the approaching, potential "nor'easter" that is expected to hit the New York City/New Jersey region, it only begs the question as to what could possibly be happening next year when the Super Bowl rolls around. Not only should we be concerned about player safety, but possibly the safety of fans attending the game.

Now many of you are probably wondering why this matters to us Panthers fans, well I can provide an answer: the Panthers will obviously be playing in this Super Bowl. So, just keep in the back of your mind throughout the upcoming Panthers season of what could be awaiting us in February.
