SNOW all the way !!!! I have been to Patriots games in freezing cold temps and snow and it is far more enjoyable (if your bundled up and have the right booze to body weight ratio) than sitting in driving rain. Done that too and it stinks

Have also sat through a Patriots game (in Foxboro) on January 2nd when the temp at game time was 60 degrees ..... Gotta love New England

State of confusion
Well, I know I am late to the conversation, but as a Green Bay Packer fan - the obvious answer is yes. Frozen Tundra all the way!!!

Last week a bunch of the beer and soda lines froze though, so as a die hard BOL drinker, that may impact my decision to stick around. Cold and drunk is one thing, cold and sober is crazy.

I'll sit in a duck blind in driving snow but not an NFL game.

Pro games are only fun to go too if its -10 and snowing so hard you can barely see. I mean, that's the whole point isnt it? A chance to dress up like Ralphy's little brother and drink warming, system depressing, adult beveages from a pair of hollowed out binoculars!?!?

Take a chunk of carpet or an old blanket folded up to stand on. Its what they all do there to keep their feet warm.
It works too.

My observation is that most people who claim that football is meant to be played in snow are likely to be watching the game from their warm, comfy couch. It may be OK as a player because you get warmed up through the physical exertion, but as a fan it sucks. Then again, I'm a Colts season ticket holder, so the weather usually doesn't damper my experience (My trips this season to Cincinnati at '08 to Cleveland were in terrible weather).

For those of you heading to Arrowhead this Sunday - Go Colts!

I went to my first Lambeau game in October of 2011. I was bummed because it was like 65 degrees out. My dream is a FrozenTundra game - full of snow & the Green Bay Packers!!!

I was at the Philadelphia/Detroit game that prompted this discussion. We hardly noticed the snow (except to note that it made seeing the field difficult).

They better have that issue resolved by Sunday!

the stadium should be emptying out by mid 3rd quarter, who would want to sit and watch the Packers get blown out even further?

Three of this weekend's games, including the Packers, are not sold out, and could be blacked out locally. Maybe the NFL needs to think about ticket/parking/beer prices.

How about the 105,000 hardy souls who sat in the Big House yesterday to watch hockey's winter classic?
