Also Goddell said that they are going to cut up the field that the superbowl is being played on into a ton of pieces, freeze drying it and selling them for $100 a pop. and the places that "big Plays" were made are $140 bucks....Can it be more about the plays and less about the money....it is said they will make 17.4 Million bucks if they sell them all
If there is any truth to this, it's utterly pathetic... wtf you gonna do with a piece of grass in ur house?

But don't worry guys a whole dollar from each piece of sod sold goes to haiti relief, man they are givers, O AND free shipping, woot bleeping woot
Stadium Associates has signed a licensing deal with the NFL to sell game-used sod from the Super Bowl in Miami, a first for the league, confirmed NFL Dir of Licensing Richard Seidlitz. New Jersey-based Stadium Associates is the same firm selling game-used turf from the BCS Championship Game played January 7 at the Rose Bowl. It is also MLB's official licensee for selling authentic sod from big league parks and has a similar agreement with IMG's Collegiate Licensing Co. In its most recent deal, Stadium Associates, in conjunction with the NFL, plans to cut 75,000 pieces of turf from the two end zones at Sun Life Stadium and up to 50,000 pieces of the NFL shield at midfield. Each 3-inch square, freeze-dried, preserved and encased, will sell for $99.99, or $249 for a set of all three, said Stadium Associates co-Founder David Andres. In addition, the two parties will work together to identify 10-15 spaces on the field tied to key plays in the Super Bowl. Those 3-square-foot pieces of sod will be carved into smaller pieces and marketed as "special moments" selling for $134.99. Stadium Associates is also offering live Super Bowl sod, in 1-square-foot and 2-square-foot pieces, that can be ordered and shipped in the spring and transplanted onto homeowner's lawns, Andres said. Free shipping, a $10 value, is available until Super Bowl kickoff, he said. One dollar from the sale of each piece of Super Bowl sod will be distributed to the Haitian relief effort. As of deadline, Stadium Associates and the NFL were still determining which charity to use, Andres said.
