Actual Location Of The Stadium?
Winner Here.
Not Here.
Name of the teams that play there?
Not New Jersey.
Winner New York!
Which city will get the most financial benefit?
Newark will get plenty of flights, and nearby bars and restaurants will do just fine.
Winner But visitors from out of town will probably flock to Manhattan, not East Rutherford.
Where will the celebrities hobnob?
Only the finest upscale clubs in East Rutherford (hah).
Winner Any number of pretentious clubs in this glitzy, awful borough (Manhattan). Fox Sports is already taking over Times Square.
Program design?
Recently, Jersey politicians have been lamenting that the Super Bowl programs haven’t been doing justice to the game’s host state.
Winner Showcases New York.

The Winner Is

Winner New York
4 out of 5

Although I’m actually sympathetic to New Jersey in this scenario since they’re totally getting “older brothered,” but the tape doesn’t lie. New York wins this one 4-1. Enjoy the game, everyone!
