That we play on grass not plastic? ... the US cancels more trains and flights every month than the UK does in a year ... what does that say about the USA? well precisely nothing .... what a weird post

What excuses? did you just make that up to feel good? your post was total bull**** anyway - no NFL games re-arranged are you sure? posting total b*llocks what does that say about you as a human?

The 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake damaged Candlestick Park, forcing the San Francisco 49ers to play their next home game on October 22 against the New England Patriots at Stanford University’s Stanford Stadium.[21]

In 1992, Hurricane Andrew forced the September 6 opening-day game between the New England Patriots and the Miami Dolphins at Joe Robbie Stadium to be rescheduled to October 18, when both teams originally had a bye week.[22]

In the wake of the October 25, 2003 Cedar Fire, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger declared a state of emergency and activated the National Guard to assist in the disaster relief process. Because of the soot and particulate matter in the air from the fire two days earlier, the NFL was forced to move the Monday Night Football game on October 27 between the San Diego Chargers and Miami Dolphins to Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona.[23]

In 2004, the Cincinnati Bengals at Tampa Bay Buccaneers preseason game, scheduled for Saturday, August 14, was rescheduled to Monday, August 16, because of Hurricane Charley.[24]

During the 2004 regular season, the Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins opening-day game, scheduled for Sunday, September 12 at 1 PM ET, was rescheduled to Saturday, September 11 at 1 PM ET because of Hurricane Ivan,[25] and the Pittsburgh Steelers at Miami Dolphins game scheduled for Sunday, September 26, at 1 PM ET was moved to 8:30 PM ET because of Hurricane Jeanne. The latter game became notable as the first NFL start of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.[26]

Hurricane Katrina in 2005 damaged the Louisiana Superdome. The NFL decided that the New Orleans Saints' first regularly scheduled home game against the New York Giants be played in Giants Stadium in New Jersey, with the Saints the home team in name only.[27] For the rest of the season, the Saints home games were split between the Alamodome in San Antonio and Louisiana State University’s Tiger Stadium.

In 2005, the NFL moved up the Kansas City Chiefs at Miami Dolphins game from Sunday, October 23 at 1 PM ET to Friday, October 21 at 7 PM ET because of Hurricane Wilma.[28] Respecting a longstanding policy not to schedule games in conflict with Friday night high school football games that dates back to a 1960s federal antitrust law, the NFL televised the game on CBS affiliates only within 75 miles of Kansas City and Miami.[29][30] It also forced the Chiefs to travel to Miami on the day of the game, a violation of the NFL's collective bargaining agreement with the National Football League Players Association which requires a visiting team to arrive in the host city no later than 24 hours prior to kickoff.

Hurricane Ike forced several changes to the 2008 schedule. The Houston Texans’ Week 2 home game against the Baltimore Ravens was first postponed to Monday, September 15, before Ike made landfall; damage to Reliant Stadium forced a further postponement, to Week 10, on Sunday, November 9, giving the Texans and the Ravens their bye weeks in Week 2. Furthermore, to accommodate this move, the Texans’ home game against the Cincinnati Bengals was moved forward from November 9 to Sunday, October 26, pushing the Bengals’ bye week from Week 8 to Week 10.[31]

In 2010, a severe storm in Minnesota deposited over 17 inches or 0.43 metres of snow on the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, which caused the venue's inflatable roof (a form of dome now mostly obsolete for major sports) to collapse about 24 hours later, early in the morning of December 12. The Minnesota Vikings had been scheduled to host the New York Giants that afternoon. Prior to the collapse, the game had already been postponed to Monday night, December 13, over concerns of stadium officials. The game was relocated to Ford Field in Detroit, still played Monday night.[32] The game would be notable as the ending of Brett Favre’s NFL-record 297 consecutive starts streak. The Vikings’ December 20 game against Chicago was moved to TCF Bank Stadium on the University of Minnesota campus.[33] The collapse affected no further NFL games, as the rest of the Vikings’ 2010 season consisted of road games, and the team had already been eliminated from playoff contention. The roof collapse was a factor in the Metrodome being demolished and replaced with hard-roofed U.S. Bank Stadium a few years later.

On December 26, 2010, a Sunday Night Football game between the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles in Philadelphia was postponed to Tuesday, December 28, by a severe snowstorm. It was the first Tuesday NFL game in 64 years.[34] In 2014, a severe snowstorm that hit the Buffalo area forced a Jets–Bills game, originally scheduled for November 23, to be moved to Detroit's indoor Ford Field on November 24.[35] In both cases, concerns about fan safety prompted the postponements.

Hurricane Irma prompted the postponement of a game between the Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, originally scheduled for September 10, 2017, to November 19; both teams coincidentally were scheduled for the same bye week, leaving the latter date available for the game to be made up.

What I worried about is the scoreboard pressure being stuck and adrift in the bottom 3 whilst other teams in and just above the relegation zone play their games. If those games and results goes against us, then I fear the sight of us 4-6 points below the line - even though we have extra games in hand - might just push some of these players pass breaking point. No confidence and no reason to fight has to be the worst case scenario of us.

You're not seriously comparing the the tiny UK rail and flight network to that of the U.S ??

Month versus year ... the USA has roughly 12 times the volume of the UK in flights but nowhere near that in rail, in fact the UK rail network carries far more passengers per year than the whole of the USA ... that's why the month v year comparison? did you 'seriously' not understand that?

You do know that trains do depart and arrive with things other than passengers right ?

Go back on the net and include freight and then come back and we'll have a chat. :D

Who gives a f*** what they do for Gridiron in the US. It's not a proper sport anyway.

They should have just called the game a no score draw. Fairest result all round.

We need a fixture against Arsenal (IIRC) rearranged because we're in the League Cup Final. We're still in the FA Cup too. Looking at midweek in March, I guess.

Until later!

Comparing calling off games in the EPL and NFL for fans safety, with the rail-freight in the USA - are you being funny?

Nice deflection but that wasn't my debate. It was someone else's.

Thankfully our games in hand are both a bit of a shot to nothing anyway. It is not like they are points sat waiting to be picked up.
The later we play them both the better.
The league is all but over for Man City and Liverpool now and they will be focused on Champions League. Might be a slight glimmer of hope for us if they take their eye off the ball.

Without praising them too much but it was good to see the club offer free coaches for all supports for the rearranged fixture

personally id like to see also anyone who cant make the game on the new date be given a refund

This stat is for actual cancellations, that is the game was never played at any point. There have been many weather postponements of games, in 2017 for example a Hurricane caused a game to be delayed 5 weeks.
