Keep '93 Super Bowl in Phoenix

IT's Your Call

November 12, 1990

By a resounding 4-to-1 margin, Evening Sun readers and other callers to SUNDIAL disagree with NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue's recommendation that Phoenix not be allowed to host the 1993 Super Bowl.

Tagliabue made his recommendation after Arizona voters turned down a referendum that would have made Martin Luther King's birthday a state holiday. Arizona, New Hampshire and Montana are the only states without a holiday honoring King.

Of the 1,210 responses, 969 (80 percent) disagreed with Tagliabue's action. Only 241 callers (20 percent) thought the 1993 Super Bowl should be moved out of Arizona.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
