    I have a comped room at Paris for both weekends. I can only go for one. Which would you choose. I love college bball and the NFL. Do the weekends have different vibes, is one a bigger hassle than the other, minimums get cranked up for one more than another? What say you!

    you didn't start a poll. but considering i go every year for SB and have never been for MM, that pretty much tells you my vote.

    i would say that the city is busy for both, but definitely the larger percentage of bigger players come in for SB. i don't know anybody that goes for MM to be honest. so minimums are probably going to be much higher for SB than MM.

    I've been for both multiple times and ill take super bowl weekend of MM everytime. SB doesn't have as many obnoxious college kids and the parties for superbowl far exceed march madness.

    If you go for SuperBowl and win lots it might make it easier to go back for March Madness :) :) :)

    I love NCAA basketball and we've gone every year for the the first two rounds (not counting that ridiculous "First Four" silliness :rolleyes2: ) since 2000.

    I love watching NFL football, but I enjoy betting on college basketball much more than I enjoy betting on football. So my choice is March Madness :)

    I'm with Shifter. SB #1. I do not know anyone that goes to MM. But we are both oldie goldie, so that might mean something. I've booked my SB weekend already. Just in case. The rooms are comped on line and I'm a low roller. Don't want to take a chance.
    When would you go for MM? Opening weekend? Final four??

    Tough because being there for the Superbowl would be awesome, but then again where else could you go to one location and actually watch all the games being played? I bet MGM's Sportsbook would be packed with all their screens.
