CNBC: Were you thinking about hosting the Super Bowl when you were building the brand-new MetLife Stadium?
TISCH: Oh, certainly. We always had it in mind that we wanted MetLife to be one of the elite that the 32 teams would look at as a great facility to highlight wonderful football games. With the new stadiums being built, there are always new technologies available, and I haven't been to any of the new stadiums except for the one in San Francisco. … But if you look back at the recently opened stadiums, whether it's what Jerry Jones created in Dallas or what the Jets and the Giants created in the Meadowlands or in San Francisco, it's always going to be state of the art, and that's the world that we live in. Technology is always evolving, and technology is a very important part of football going forward.

CNBC: There's a lot of concern about security, of course, surrounding the Super Bowl. What were your concerns and what was the cost to protect the stadium?

CNBC: Would your decision to host the Super Bowl have been impacted at all with all the terrorism that is going on today in the world?
TISCH: We certainly live in a world where we have to be aware of security challenges all the time, and I'm sure law enforcement has taken current conditions into account as they plan for the Super Bowl in Phoenix.
