Sorry - I'm still fuzzy on this "flying out tomorrow" thing. I'm sure there is more detail somewhere on here, but was wondering if someone can just fill me in:  is the snow supposed to stop by tomorrow?

 

And how are the players supposed to get to the airport?

 

Makes no sense. Either fly out before the storm or have the game in Buffalo…

How the hell are they going to have the game in Buffalo and it's buried in snow? You think that Snow's magically going to disappear by Sunday afternoon?

 

No it's not.

How will they fly out buried in snow?  Hence the makes no sense comment.

At this point maybe they won't? There are plenty of reports that have been posted on their plans of how they're going to fly out. But again, at this point the way the weather is they may not even be going to Detroit? And from what I understand from the reports that I read they may leave as late as Sunday morning? But again the game was never going to be played in Buffalo with the weather the way it is right now. there would be no way it could be cleared out enough to play on that field.

The bold would only add to the bizarre and legendary events of this year. From cooked to death to not being get out of town due to 5 feet of snow. Throw in a botched snap in the end zone to lose against the Vikings, and we have a lot to forget about for this season! This is some crazy %$#@!

Seems like overall poor planning. If they couldn’t practice today, why not travel?

You have a good point right there. They should have left Thursday night after they announced they were playing in Detroit. That way they could have got out of there before the storm really hit. I'm thinking they didn't really think it was going to be that bad when the storm was first reported to be coming. I Believe I read somewhere that Cleveland has already bused out of Cleveland to Detroit and likely are already there. While the bills are buried in orchard park. As Augie said above, this is some crazy s***, real crazy.

I really don't believe there was any way they could travel today unless they would have done what Cleveland did and just left in a bus? At the end of the day this is a real big mess and it isn't as easy as it was the last time they had to go to Detroit. This storm it's starting to turn into historical measures.

For all the "why did they move the game" people.  Would you be willing to go shovel that stuff out?

That crowd is hilarious. I love how many social media tough guys turned it into a toughness issue, when it’s actually a logistical crisis. There’s just no way to make it happen.

The plan is to fly out of Buffalo airport tomorrow (Saturday) in the AM.

 

I don't think it's a big deal, but people here seem to like trying to make it a big deal.

For what it’s worth, I’m near the stadium in OP.   My street was plowed 12 hours ago and it hasn’t been touched since.  There’s at least three feet of snow in the road.  Objectively I think the national guard is going to have to come in to dig us out.  Or we wait for it to melt.  The town just let it go too far.  I’m skeptical the Bills can round everyone up to get out tomorrow.   I really am.  I’ll be surprised if we don’t play at 8p on Sunday and leave day of game.

It’s a nice plan.  
 

Some of these guys live in my neighborhood.  I have no idea how the eff they will get down the street.  And, even if the town plows, there is going to be a mountain of heavy wet snow in the driveway that someone is going to have to plow or dig through to get a car out.  It might take hours to do that.  The other option is that someone drives around in a plow and picks everyone up.  This is a problem.
