    Any word about what happens if power is disrupted because of the storm ? Will the game be moved to Friday or Saturday perhaps ? Or out of town ?

    I wouldn't mind it being moved to St. Louis since it's only preseason.

    But they probably would move it up a day or something.

    It looks like the storm will be into Georgia by Thursday morning anyway.

    IMO it is a waste of time. The final preseason game is a waste of time. It is just a bunch of people trying not to get hurt. It might be a little better this year since they get to keep 10 more players, but I still doubt it will make that much of a difference.

    True, im just hopeing that our offensive line will gel a little more with a couple more series, because i would hate to have the same o-line preformance we had against carolina, when we play the steelers opening day.

    Is the stadium at risk to be hit by the storm?

    What precautions are taken with that badass new scorebaord you've built?

    I doubt they'll move it back, as it is there isn't very much time between the last preseason game and the first REAL NFL game.

    Well there is an extra week right ? 1st game isn't until Sept 7th right ? I hope that it just stays pretty weak and doesn't regenerate. I'm really tired of all these hurricanes.

    *** SIGH ***
    Sometimes I have to wonder about the real ages of some posters on this board.

    The last preseason game generally has the starting units just put in brief appearances before the games are turned over to the second/third/fourth stringers, especially those "on the bubble". The coaches use this game to get a final look at the younger players to decide whom to cut/whom to put on the practice squad/ etc.

    For all the cries here of "It's only preseason!" or "Preseason doesn't count!", it seems that a lot of posters don't understand the purpose of preseason -- to evaluate talent in game situations!

    By now most coaches already know who they are going to cut. I have seen players have great final preseason games and yet still get cut.

    My 'Final Preaseaon game is a complete waste' comes from 15 years of actually paying attention to the preseason and the games.

    I am willing to bet that at most 3 players a year make any team due to their final preseason game. (the number would be higher if I allowed final preseason game injury to count)

    The scoreboards are no bigger than the old ones. They used the same frames.

    They withstood previous hurricanes, they will survives this one.

    Hope they move it to St. Louis, Saban & his coaches need the game time experience to make their final cuts. And who cares if we win it or not?

    How do you know they won't cancel it? It is not like it has any real meaning or impact on the season. All they have to do is refund the tickets to the fans. Doubt that will happen but you never know.

    Ernesto will be gone by then.

    If you followed the past unless the winds are exceeding TS nothing will be moved.

    We played in the aftermath of Frances with a curfew, against Pittsburgh with the outer bands of Jeanne splashing us (2004) and in 2005 it was Katrina vs Tampa.
    I remeber a game against the Panthers as well.

    One game was moved. Vs Chicago, don't know what year. They put us on Monday night.

    Unless the Hurricane sits on top of us we will be playing.

    storm

    first off-the game is the last thing on anybodies mind during one of these. questions??-can the rams land in miami? will the fans need to take care of their houses and jobs first? what about the players-i am assuming most live on or near the water.will they have emergency people to take care of the crowd or will the police be at the lights and roads if power goes out. will the people who work at the stadium be able to get there. if the storm does damage will the stadium be used as a gathering point for out of town power people to help florida power people out. will there be a mandatory evac. for some areas. will the stadium be a priority to get power back on.this is a small storm in comparison to most but winds will still be 80+ and once over land it is not expected to weaken. The stadium will be fine-it is strong and sturdy. the game is irrelavant for the next couple of days. last year they moved a sunday game to a friday night to get it played but it was regular season.if they move it to far ahead the fins will not have time to prepare for the thursday night season opener against the steelers. where saban draws the line between practice and a preseason game -only he knows:dolphins: .

    unless infrastructure is destroyed... and IF it spins up it might...what we discovered here in Martin County is that the direction of the wind is important. A lot of the damage came from the wind not having culled things in a particular direction and it finds NEW weaknesses... I would think that Wilma tightened things up down south and those up here, well, we've seen three eyes in two years and it looks like I will see another one.

    I hope its just on Thursday as planned or canceled. The Pitt. game is a week from Thursday and we can't afford to lose preparation time for that game. Pitt plays Carolina this Thursday and if we played on Fri. or Sat. then the Steelers would have the advantage in prep time. My vote is if the storm prevents the game from being played on Thursday just cancel the damn thing! Although the NFL will force the issue and make the teams play no matter what. :dolphins:

    Wow, really? People in New Orleans thought a cat 5 hurricane headed directly toward a city below sea level was "weak"? Really?
