Way to go Rutgers!! Maybe finally getting somewhere in the Big East.. Miami and Virginia Tech are gone and Rutgers is finally doing something. AWESOME!! Remember.. The BCS is on the hook to give the Big East winner an automatic BCS Bowl Big until 2010.

Sometimes I wish I had went to ASU instead of UNC-Asheville.

According to yahoosports, there were 2 guys shot dead at the North Carolina State Univ. game. A tailgate party got stupid. At least one student has been charged with 1st degree murder.

So what would have been the concequence of both teams refusing to play in the game? I think, 2 years ago, Baltimore at Philly preseason was cancelled because the turf was not set correctly (at the Vet) I thought I remembered it was Baltimore who refused to play on it. I guess the health of the 120+ players on the field are more imporant than the well being of the 25,000+ that would come to see the game?

If I remember correctly that was a game time decision. As in walking the turf pregame and going we cannot play on this..

And the game that was in dispute was in a DOME in New Orleans. Not outdoors in Florida.

Actually, that was the case...but it wasn't just the Jets (or was it the ravens), but also the Eagles who were walking the field, and decided that it wasn't playable. It was the first year for that NexTurf stuff in the old Veteran's Stadium, and the parts that they put down for football, to cover up the bases had visible seams and uneven surfaces.

Twenty-five years ago, on Sept. 7, 1979, the Entertainment and Sports Programming Network, ESPN, made its debut.

Happy Birthday ESPN :)

Well, regardless of the fact that it was played in New Orleans, they could have cancelled the game, because I'm sure most of the players have homes in the area. Look at Pudge. When Detroit finished playing Tampa Bay on Friday, he stayed in Florida to help his family with preparations, and even missed yesterday's game with Kansas City. If this was a regular season game, then I could have seen them playing the game, maybe. This was a preseason game, nothing more than a cash cow for the NFL. It could have been cancelled and I highly doubt anyone would have been mad at the NFL, New Orleans, or Miami for doing so.

And ESPN gave birth to the highest cable subscription fees ever! Thanks, ESPN! :)

Firestorm - I'm not saying that the game HAD to have been played or even should have been played. Just pointing out that there are so many points of view. Think about how many football players not playing for Miami/Tampa Bay / Jacksonville have homes in Florida, the same for players in Major League Base ball. Call a halt to games to go deal with a natural disaster. Absolutely. Go do it. IT's the halfway shit that drives me nuts..

ANd yes. Maybe high cable subscription fees, but it's not like the 2.5 minutes on the local news was ever enough sports coverage in the past.

Oh, I agree totally. There were a ton of players that didn't get to go home because they weren't anywhere near Florida. It'll be interesting to see what happens if Ivan makes his way to Florida over the weekend.

Are the NFL ticket prices set by league fiat or by the individual team? If NFL tickets become too high priced, then Arena football will be attempting to pick up the folks who cannot afford the NFL

jock - Considering the insanely long lists of people who want to get tickets and season tickets for teams I don't think the NFL has anything to worry about anytime soon. It's 8 home games plus pre-season...

Yeah, fans will pay top dollar to see an NFL game, and for some teams, like Green Bay, the wait to get season tickets is ridiculous. I think someone basically has to die in order to move up in the season ticket request.

Ticket prices are set by the teams/facilities.

OK, I thought it was in Miami.  But being in a Dome wouldn't matter, it would have beenthe fans coming to & from the game that would have been the bigger concern. 

Again though, it Miamii refused to play then what?  It would be a forfeit & NO would have won the preseason game 2-0.
