Regardless of the outcome of tonights game, I am just hoping the Eagles win next Sunday otherwise we will probably see another thread about how the Eagles were screwed because of little rest they had between games..

You shouldn't have to choose between being safe, seeing a football game or sacrificing $100/ticket for not showing up in a blizzard.

Think about the first team bus that slides off a road or, heaven forbid, if the Dome in Minneapolis had collapsed while a game were going on..

If the Saints-Falcons game weren't scheduled for Monday evening, I suspect the wussies from the NFL would have postponed that game with all that snow we got here in Atlanta :rolleyes:

I really can't believe this is such a polarizing issue. It was decided for SAFETY issues of the FANS the game be postponed. It was not postponed because of fear for a little bit of snow, the temperature fell to under 30 degrees, or there was fog in the area! I am really sorry some of you had to find something else to watch/do Sunday night because the game wasn't on but seeing as how you are all still posting, it appears everyone survived it.

I can almost guarantee that any of the people complaining about the "wuss" factor in cancelling the game... if any of those people were caught in a snowstorm, stranded and couldn't drive their car... and were nowhere near their home... they'd be complaining. Where's my free ride home? Where's my free room + board since I can't go home? Where's my refund for dealing with this?

Guaranteed there would have been lots of complaints if the game hadn't been cancelled and the elements combined to trap 50000 people in the stadium overnight.

I saw that on TV... and noted that the governor didn't sit in that seat. He in fact, sat in another adjacent seat for which he didn't have a ticket.

So he couldn't even muster up enough to clear out 1 seat... but he thought it was "wussy" to cancel the game during the blizzard?

And he probably could have been ejected from the game for sitting in the wrong seat :)
