NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue is still pushing the leagues' owners to vote favorably for a northern Super Bowl.

He acknowledged that he does not yet have the 24 votes needed to change the league policy that states a Super Bowl must be played in a city where the climate averages 50 degrees or in a city which has a domed stadium. This is what the league refers to as the "50-degree" rule.

A committee was already formed in New York, hoping to lure the 2007 Super Bowl to the Big Apple (to be played in Giants Stadium). Recently Redskins owner Daniel Snyder announced he was forming a similar committee of local community and business leaders to develop a plan to bid for the Super Bowl hosting city as well.

A vote on the 2007 Super Bowl hosting city will not take place until 2003.
