Also, Mayor Bloomberg had been taking a beating for going forward with the marathon. Meanwhile, New Jersey had it much worse where the storm is concerned, and the reaction to having a football game in NJ, isn't nearly as volatile as it was for having a marathon in NYC. And many of the people involved with running marathons are volunteers.

Anyone else see the hypocricy here?
They're coming in from Pittsburgh, for God's sake. Not exactly like coming in from Seattle.

NO stadium fell apart. No comparison because NY stadium seems to be in good shape.

I don't think Orangese7en knows what "hypocricy" is. He clearly can't spell it...

No one was living in the Superdome at the time. They also didn't play a game in the Superdome that entire season.

Very good. And someone actually got defensive when I said this should be verified.

The 2005 New Orleans Saints season began with the team trying to improve from their 88 record from 2004. The Saints played two preseason games in the Louisiana Superdome before being forced to evacuate New Orleans due to Hurricane Katrina. They played the rest of the season on the road, splitting their games between their temporary headquarters at San Antonio's Alamodome, and LSU's Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, and even playing their first home game at Giants Stadium. The season ended with the firing of Jim Haslett.
It's kind of coming back now. The SuperDome wasn't in condition to have home games. So, arbitrarily they gave the Giants an extra home game, after which point, they put them in venues that were kind of in their region (but not their home per se).

So this dismisses all of these comments about it being occupied as crap. But it's not really surprising since almost no one also bothered to read past the first paragraph. Even if you grant them their erroneous premise, they still have issues to account for. Typical Mane, addle-minded, driveby discussion.

It might comfort you to know that dumbasses like you have lowered my expectations significantly. So carry on.

I don't know how arbitrary it was. The Saints regular season started like this:
September 11, 2005 at Carolina Panthers
September 19, 2005 vs. New York Giants
September 25, 2005 at Minnesota Vikings
October 2, 2005 vs. Buffalo Bills

My point is, I would imagine that they couldn't get the venue logistics worked out in time for the NYG home opening game, but by the Oct. 2 Buffalo home game, they were able to have them relocated.

Or we could just continue to wear our tinfoil hats. Either way.
