Hey folks -
This isn’t official BUT both ESPN and the NFLN have reported that the game between the Texans and Ravens may be postponed again. According to the NFLN news blurb I just saw, a conference call between the teams and the NFL is scheduled for sometime this afternoon.
I will follow up with news as I hear it – may I suggest for commisioners to do the following:
1) Alert your league – don’t let it to chance and run the risk that they don’t know, aren;t following and get pissed later. Maybe the ’shark move’ is to let them sink on their own but you are the Commish – keep them informed.
2) Either warn them off playing any players from those teams OR have them submit a sub list in case the game is canceled last minute. It probably won’t – we will probably know by tonight what will happen. But again, keep yourself covered.
As always, thoughts and prayers for the affected region. I was in Los Angeles for both the riots and the Northridge Earthquake. Neither one was any fun and I can assume a Category 3 Hurricane ranks up there as well.
According to this article at NFL.com the game between the Houston Texans and Baltimore Ravens has been postponed. Here is what they are doing according to the article.
The Ravens-Texans game originally scheduled to be played Sunday, then rescheduled to be played Monday night due to Hurricane Ike, will now be played in Week 10. The originally scheduled Bengals-Texans game in Week 10 has been moved to Week 8 (game time 4:05 p.m. ET), and the Bengals’ bye week moves to Week 10.
If you have seen the footage of Houston, you know this had to happen, although a move to another city would have been an option.
Again, thoughts and prayers to those in the region.
