Rendell the idiot

The governor must have a short memory.Wasnt too long ago when the Valentines Day debacle happened on Route 81 I believe that stranded people and hes complaining that they postponed a football game? The mayor and NFL were trying to avoid another disaster.

The potential was there for a far worse snowstorm than they got.What would of happened if it did snow like they were predicting and those people got stranded? Does the meathead think everyone attending the game lives within walking distance?

Who would of gotten the blame for that one like PennDot got hammered for the Valentines mess?

Hey Uncle ED..your times almost up,just go away.

Re: Rendell the idiot

I think Ed was partially right. Why cancel a game because of what MIGHT happen. Football is supposed to be a manly sport right?

Re: Rendell the idiot

I heard Fat Eddie talking about that the other day. What I thought was ironic was that in the same interview he was complaining about the game being cancelled, he also said he declared a partial state of emergency because of the storm. Where? around Philly

Shoot straight

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.

Re: Rendell the idiot

I think everybody has missed the entire point. The game was nOT cancelled out of concern for the safety of the fans, or the danger of the roads. It was postponed soley because the ticket gate and concessionaires would have lost their financial shirts due to low attendance. If the gate doesn't pay the rent, the teams can't pay the players, the rent for the field, and thhe concessionaires can't pay their rent and licenseing. bY THE TEAMS AND LEAGUES IT WAS STRICTLY A FINANCIAL DECISION.

Re: Rendell the idiot

NFL teams do not depend on gate receipts in order to make money. Ticket prices are icing on the cake. Teams make their money from the HUGE TV contract the the NFL has with the networks and from merchandise sales (which occur in most retail stores everywhere). An NFL team could have a game in an empty stadium and they'd still make money.

Re: Rendell the idiot

However, I do completely agree with the proposition that RENDELL IS AN IDIOT!

Re: Rendell the idiot

Rendell may be an idiot, but canceling the game was equally as stupid. If someone wants to take the risk of heading to the game so be it, would have been a fun one to watch!

Don't Tread On Me is what it says and I'll take that to my grave.

Re: Rendell the idiot

Maybe Rendell figured the Eagles were on a roll with alot of momentum, and was concerned they'd "cool off" and get beaten silly?

Wait...That IS what happened...LOL

Re: Rendell the idiot

I agree about the money coming from TV and licensing. However, they have a huge stake with their contractors to fill the stadiums and provide business for the concessionaires. If their contracts are anything like the contracts for concerts, the teams have some obligations to the fields and all those who depend on the physical presence of the game.

Re: Rendell the idiot

The stadium looked pretty empty on the tv...I think the announcers said it looked as though every other seat was empty.
