I don't see how this game is played this weekend in Texas, except maybe El Paso.

I don't like the idea of the game played in Atlanta, but postponing the game isn't really an option.

If it's played in Atlanta, its gonna be dead silent in the stadium. Falcon fans don't really care about their own team and they sure won't go to a game between 2 other teams.

Why not? They should be able to get this game in on Monday night.

Am I the only one on this board old enough to remember Hurricane Alicia?

Sci Guy's latest entry at Chron.com makes me think the storm will blow through without the sky falling on the Reliant roof.

I think the game gets played Monday night at Reliant.

Maybe move it up to OU stadium in Norman on Sunday - then I could make the game (wishful thinking). I am stationed up in OKC. I remember the San Diego fires last year and the discussions/concerns with replay/camera concerns, I'm not sure what stadiums would be possibilities except for NFL stadiums?

Depending how bad this storm is, they may have trouble getting a game played at Reliant even Monday and once we're past Monday, I dunno for sure but I doubt there's any way to make up the game ?
Rather than risk this scenario, I'd think they'd announce an alternative game site in another city to be sure its played ?

Over in Westbury (not far from the Dome at all), we were without for closer to a day and a half.

Yet.

Factoring in size and pressure in the eye, things are still decidedly undecided.
