    It wont be moved. I think you're jumping the gun.

    There is a perfectly usable stadium right next to Reliant -- the Astrodome.

    The Texans, just like the Ravens would, are not going to give up a home game.

    The essence of that article is that it will be postponed til later in the season, not moved to another stadium.

    You thought Reliant was fine.
    What makes you think the Astrodome is fine?




    When was the last time that thing was used for a large scale sporting event?

    Is eveything in there up to proper codes, etc. to allow public usage?

    Is there even still a field inside that is considered safe to play on?

    Do they have concessions in there with functioning equipment?

    Remember the only time the Ravens played at the Astrodome we got our asses kicked.

    Was that the same team we have now? Are we playing the same team we did back then?

    I'm sorry but statements like this are made all the time without any logical basis. That game has nothing to do with a game between this years Ravens and Texans if indeed it is played there. I agree with Fanatic, I doubt the Astrodome is in any shape for an NFL game.

    It's already been said that the Astrodome doesn't have suitable turf to play a football game on.

    If it's going to be played this week it will likely be played in New Orleans.

    I had read somewhere that the Astrodome is definitely NOT up to code. Besides, how can you play the game in a stadium that probably is not set up for NFL football. The NFL totally screwed this one up, it should have been moved on Friday, rather then holding out hope that the stadium would be usable. Hope is not a strategy.

    Simmer down, i was just stating a fact. I know it has nothing to do with the possible outcome of this years game.

    Even if the Astrodome itself is fine, which seems unlikely, other issues around using Reliant are the lack of power and possibly water service in the area. Those same problems would affect the Astrodome.

    I never once said Reliant was fine. I know the Astrodome is fine because (1) the news reports are saying so and (2) I just drove by there about an hour ago.

    It's used for HS football all the time -- and yes, here in Texas that is definitely large scale. Last "NFL" game was in 2001 and it's used for the Houston Rodeo, which has an attendance of around 60,000.

    Ditto.

    Ditto again.
