I'm about 2 hours from the game and you won't catch me anywhere near the place. NO TAILGATING on stadium grounds, extremely limited parking (at $150 per spot no less), and just an all around pain in the ass to attend...not to mention CANNED beer will go for between $12-$15 PER 12 OZ CAN. New Jersey is getting our first...and most likely LAST...chance at hosting this game.
I'll be sitting on my warm couch cooking a sh*t load of BBQ with friends and drinking beer that won't cost me my first born....

"....There will be no drop-off spots for the Super Bowl and people won’t be able to walk to the game, Kelly said. To get onto the Meadowlands complex, vehicles will need a parking pass, and limousines and buses will also need to stay on the premises during the game, he said.
Along with that $150 parking spot will be stringent rules and tailgate restrictions unrecognizable to Jets and Giants fans during regular-season games.
"You’ll be allowed to have food in your car and have drink in your car, and provided that you are within the boundaries of a single parking space, you’ll be able to eat or drink right next to your car," Kelly said. "However, you’re not going to be able to take out a lounge chair and you’re not going to be able to have a grill and you’re not going to be able to take up more than one parking space. And it will all be watched very carefully..." In other words....fun, fun, fun.....
