Talk about taking facts and twisting. 
New Oreans literally used the dome DURING the hurricane to save hundreds of lives. 

5 days later it was evacuated and they played on the road for a season.  The point is acts of god can impact a dome environment too. 
 

For snow - Minnesota had to play on a college field when their dome roof couldn’t hold the snow.

You're aware that "dome" was an inflatable bag of gas? A little different now.

Please explain how a dome would stop snow from falling all over Buffalo. Moving the game has nothing to do with the actual field or the stadium, why are so many people not understanding this??

 

Well they are domers who are unhappy with not getting a dome paid by someone else  so add it to unrelated threads.  Next they will go to games and wear domes on their heads like the bag heads who went to games with bag on their heads.

 

 

Bag heads at least make more sense because it hid their faces so they were ridiculed less except when they took it off to throw up or opened their mouths to talk about it.

I'm quite relieved this game has been moved. Unlike many of the posters here who thought that 2017 Colts snow game was the coolest thing ever. I thought it was an embarrassment. But I was more worried it would be like the 2007 Bills Browns game in Cleveland where 8 years into the drought we went to Cleveland with the playoffs on the line and played in the worst conditions Ive ever seen for a game. Lost 8-0 and were knocked out of the playoffs. I remember thinking why bother playing this game under such horrendous conditions? It was a terrible product from an already meh Bills team.

NEWSFLASH: Both teams came into that game with identical records.  Cleveland still missed the playoffs too!

 

It wasn't the snow.

 

Cleveland went 2-1 last 3 games and still didn't get in at 10-6. Bills lost out last three games.  That game meant squat to Bills...

Funny how Dolphins games don't get moved due to heat though lol..

Completely different scenario.  A more fair comparison would be when they(and other florida teams)  do move games due to Hurricanes.

I am curious on percentage of gate proceeds which Detroit Lions.

Don’t they give the tickets away for free?  That’s what happened last time

Two straight games in a dome vs garbage defenses. After that the last 6 games our in cold/bad weather. 

 

Good opportunity for Allen to keep his slim mvp hopes alive. But he needs to get 7 passing TDs and 0 picks. He can do it. 

As I was agreeing with a bunch of people on reddit that Allen wasn’t playing great I ended up convincing myself he still has a good chance at mvp somehow haha

 

IF he cuts down on the turnovers he’s still in good shape (could be a big if I know). He’s leading all qbs in total yards right now when you factor in rushing yds and he’s a couple tds behind mahomes in total tds.

 

there’s a pretty good chance he keeps it at 15 ints or less and racks up a ton of tds/total yards but will it be enough to catch mahomes is the question

Was flying into BUF w family for the game. Just changed airline tix to DTW.   I’m not that familiar w Detroit.  Anyone have a recommendation for a good area / hotel to stay?  And good restaurant for Saturday night?

Have only had “Detroit pizza” a couple times and it wasn’t authentic (though it wasn’t the Pizza Hut version at least), and I’d look around if I were going (but I’m pizza-obsessed).  Think it could be similar char cup pepperoni like Buffalo. 
 

This is wiki- 

 

Detroit-style pizza is a rectangular pizza with a thick crust that is crispy and chewy. It is traditionally topped with Wisconsin brick cheese that goes all the way to the edges and caramelizes against the high-sided heavyweight rectangular pan.

Interesting:

 

"The team is planning to use the visitors side of everything in Ford Field so that it is the same when they return for the game four days later."

 

Spying???

 

I wonder if they'll use the home or away locker room? Before SB XVI, Darryl Talley was not happy, since the Bill were designated as the home team in Minneapolis, but got assigned the visitors' locker room. He said the home team locker rooms were usually plusher.

I am just looking forward to playing those cheaters four weeks from now. That is when we re-take first in the division, just like we did at New England last year.

I read somewhere they are going to use the visiting locker rooms.
