    Re: Ravens Game Rescheduled



    The storm is hitting early Saturday morning so they should know later Saturday how bad the damage is if any. They are slated to fly in Sunday.

    Re: Ravens Game Rescheduled

    Meh, I still won't get to see it. The only Ravens game I'll be able to watch this season (pending re-arranged SNF games or playoffs) is when we play at Pittsburgh on Monday night...and frankly, that's going to be an extremely difficult game to win :/

    Per ESPN -- 7:30 start.
    As noted earlier, this is a 8:30 eastern start. These announcements that I post come directly from the Ravens.

    I realize that now -- I just saw ESPN report it as a 7:30 start, but they were obviously referring to local time in Houston, not ET.

    This actually works for me. I couldn't watch the game sunday because of a band gig. Now I can actually see it!

    They should have just played the game here! I am leaving for Denver Monday morning. I better be able to find a place out there to watch it or the NFL is in trouble with me.

    Re: Ravens Game Rescheduled

    I still think they are taking a chance by playing in Houston on Monday night. Even if they have their own power set up, there could be damage to the stadium & will there be any1 in town to see it. Also, who knows if they'll be able to open either of their airports back up Sunday. Watching the Houston ABC affiliate & the latest reports on the hurricane, they don't need to play this game in Houston. There will be more important things to be doing in that area other than an NFL game. That's why I suggested New Orleans, about 350 miles to the east. They are playing the deadskins down the road Sunday, so the Super Dome is open. Makes more sense then Atlanta. The safest option for everyone & they can play either Sunday or Monday.

    Re: Ravens Game Rescheduled

    Again, that decision has nothing to do with the storm itself. The storm effected the travel of the team.

    The time on which the game will be played will come down to power and flooding. Cat 2 is almost routine here and Houston sits 75 miles inland. Even it gets up to a Cat 3, the winds inland wont be high enough to create any significant damage to the stadium.

    Friends and family in B'more keep calling and saying the news reports there are saying "Houston is being evacuated", making it sound like 4 Million folks are on their way out. This is partially true but as extreme as it sounds.

    The south east side of Houston, the low-laying parts near Galveston Bay is being evacuated but that's it. Houston is a HUGE city in both population and land mass. The areas being evacuated wont effect the area near the stadium or the surrounding areas.

    Re: Ravens Game Rescheduled

    They aren't gonna play this game in Houston if things are bad. They'd rather play it there if possible. But clearly this is a move to allow them to assess the viability of keeping the game in Houston. They'll be able to know by Sunday whether or not they can park the game there Monday night, or if they'll need to move it.

    For those of you counting on DirectTV this may upset you a bit. I think this is garbage, but thank goodness I live in a local area.

    Re: Ravens Game Rescheduled

    This absolutely sucks. I'll be out of town on Monday and won't be able to see the game. If things are going to be bad Sunday, then I don't see how they are going to be that much better on Monday. I would think flooding would be the main concern and that isn't going to magically fix itself in a day. They should have just played the game elsewhere or rescheduled it for the buy week.

    It makes the most sense to play it here. You probably won't have a packed house in Atlanta or New Orleans. Up here you would have a full stadium and they could give the gate receipts to the Texans.

    Re: Ravens Game Rescheduled

    People, things wont be bad on Sunday.

    That's what nobody is grasping. The storm will be sitting over Oklahoma by then. At worst, some folks in Houston wont have power.

    The stadium wont be flooded. They are worried about other areas and peoples safety getting to and from the stadium. But the stadium itself is going to be fine. The one day move was prudent. It allowed a days worth of clean up and prep should the storm had intensified. It's didnt and most models show that it wont.

    Re: Ravens Game Rescheduled

    I just believe Houston will have more important things to worry about then a football game Monday. I hope I'm wrong but this is looking more omnious with eveyr update. HoustonRaven, stay safe & I hpoe you're right, but it's not looking that way. I know Houston is 75 miles inland, but I was watching your ABC affiliate online since they are doing that now, & they were saying winds over 100 MPH. That just can't be good for the infrastructure, including the stadium. +, even if the game is 2 days after the storm, cleanup & power can't be done that quickly after major damage. Not to metion the people that are still there. Are they going to go to a game after their house has been damaged or destroyed? How about all the support people, are they just going to show up @ the stadium? The police & fire are going to be worried about the game when they'll have more pressing needs?

    As far as Sunday ticket, that's just wrong especially since there is precedence for it from 11 years ago. Florio's article is good except for the part about Ravens fans outside of Baltimore. I think there are more than he & the national media believe.

    Yeah I commented on that little snide comment that Florio threw in there, but he has been saying all preseason that it wouldn't surprise him if the Ravens won the division...so I cut him a little slack lol.
