    Re: Ravens Game Rescheduled



    I don't see the Ravens playing the Texans in Houston Monday Night if anything resembling what is being predicted occurs.
    I don't see it happening either. My Dad told me that he heard on the radio yesterday that the game could be moved to Atlanta.

    I'll be really surprised if they did play at Houston on Monday night.

    This is from a post on the Scout board.

    Texans game postponed, damage reported at Reliant

    A preliminary assessment showed some damage to Reliant Stadium after Ike passed through.

    ``We lost about five panels from the stadium (roof), and then some doors were blown off,'' said Edgar Colon, chairman of the Harris County Sports and Convention Corp. By mid-morning, he had not been able to personally visit the site.

    ``We have not been able to give a visual inspection,'' Colon said. ``This right now is preliminary. We have not done a full inspection.''

    He was pleased that Minute Maid Park apparently withstood the storm.

    Updated

    The Houston Texas will not be playing their home opener against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night at Reliant Stadium.

    The game was supposed to have been played at 7:30 p.m., but Hurricane Ike has caused damage to the stadium that has made it unsuitable for hosting the game.

    "The facility will not be usable," said Shey Guinn, president of SMG, the company that manages Reliant Park.

    "There's some structural damage to the roof. Part of it is off," Guinn said.

    "There's also some other damage on the property caused by wind and water. We're in the process of assessing the damage," he said. "As far as the game being postponed again or played, that will be up to the NFL."

    The game had originally been set for 3:15 p.m. Sunday, but because of Ike the NFL moved it to Monday night.

    The Texas and Ravens will have no comment until they hear from the league.
    ''You'd love to go on the first day but I'm glad for the situation I'm in,'' he said. ''Baltimore knows how to play defense.''

    Those brightlights your girlfriend is seeing must be from the beams of interior lights passing through the holes in the roof where there are roofing panels missing.


    Only person on here that thought this game was going to be played was the guy actually living in Houston.

    For the NFL to even think that this game could be played with what the forecast was going to be was idiotic at best.

    Even if they could move the game somewhere else like Atlanta, New Orleans, etc., who's to say the Texans actually have the ability right now to get there?

    They could have yesterday, but now.......

    this game has to be played this week right? There is no way to move the game to a later date.

    Somehow, I get the feeling we are going to screwed in some way due to the NFLs decision to wait to see what happens rather then be proactive to the situation.

    By screwd I mean playing this game on our bye week, and having this be our bye week.

    Now that would require some other stuff and teams to maneauver around a bit, but it is a possibility.

    Unfortunately, a very real scenario the NFL is considering involves making this weekend the bye for Ravens and Texans, with a swap of later byes with the Bengals. Sucks: this game should be played Monday night at the Alamodome, 3 hour bus ride away for the Texans and just a different airport for the Ravens, easily accessible and apparently not impacted by the storm.

    No, the worst shit ever is living in a city/town and having it demolished by a hurricane.

    It could rank up there is some as the dumbest shit ever though by the NFL not to have already moved it to safer grounds.

    Angry Re: Ravens Game Rescheduled

    from everything i have heard its gonna be played on our bye week so there for the ravens get screwed out of thier bye week in week 10.meaning this is our bye week in which was after only one game(as everyone already knows) but the players didnt get their week to relax and take their mind off football and deal with personal issues.shit happens in life nobody can can control certain things but the NFL could have very well set up some kind of arrangement to play this game is an area that is much more safe then houston.just another way the NFL slams us in the ass.


    i understand this is a very serious time and more important then just football and a game but everybody knows this game will be played so why the hell couldnt they move it somewhere else.it f'n irks the shit out of me

    Re: Ravens Game Rescheduled

    We have definitely been screwed.

    The league has optimized around economics, but not around either teams, frankly.

    I think the Houston Texans would rather have a game on a neutral field than get screwed on their bye.

    Apparently Bob McNair was refusing to have the game played at an alternate venue.

    Re: Ravens Game Rescheduled

    I was checking out NST's new site and came across DF's blog on the subject. He presents a pretty interesting argument that the NFL did the right thing for the Houston Texans and their community by handling it this way.

    It's worth a look.

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    Re: Ravens Game Rescheduled

    All I can say is: Oh Freaking Please. If you think Bob McNair and the Texans refused to have another site host this game for any reason other than economics you are out of your damn mind. Are any of those issues with people losing homes going to change next week, when the Texans go somewhere else to play their next scheduled game?

    Mishandled by the NFL and pushed around by an owner wanting his green - period.
