    I don't believe it honestly. Freaking insane. Screws my fantasy teams because I have Vick and Peterson. Forced to bench AP just in case he cannot play. And I don't even know what to do with Vick. I guess play him.
    We're bringing purple back.

    I think the Vikings need to put the league on notice that they will only play in domed stadiums with a solid roof from this day forward. Screw playing any games outdoors ever again.

    Are you frigging kidding me? I just heard that on FOX, and thought Glazer was joking. An outdoor NFL game postponed because of the weather? It's official, the Vikings are jinxed this year. Of all the crap the Vikings have been through this year, I think this is probably the most ridiculous. Let me guess, the league is worried about how the snow will affect their precious little Vick?

    Or to give the Eagles passing game a chance.

    If this is a ground game, we win it, especially if Peterson plays.


    Mind you, it was them who said the game isn't playable, not the league.

    They also said the fans can't safely get there - why should that matter? We had to play in the stadium of one of our division rivals, I would have much rather had no one there.

    I hate the term global warming, but there is an undeniable climate change that has been occurring the last twenty years and it seems to be accelerating. You can debate how much of that, if any, is due to humanís influence but it should be interesting if the north continues to experience more severe storms, game rescheduling may not be uncommon in the years to come. We may only see domed arenas in the northern states soon.

    All arenas are domed, that's what makes them arenas and not stadiums.

    The term arena is sometimes used as a synonym for a very large venue such as Pasadena's Rose Bowl, but such a facility is typically called a stadium. The use of one term over the other has mostly to do with the type of event. Football is typically played in a stadium while basketball and hockey are typically played in an arena (as per Wiki).

    So in that sense, stadium would be the more commonly used term for football.
