The Miami Dolphins played a pre-season game tonight in New Orleans. But several Miami players didn’t want to go because of Hurricane Frances. Seems they didn’t want to leave their families with a hurricane coming to their house.
Unreasonable request? Apparently it was to the NFL. They felt the game should be played despite the feelings and emotions of the players leaving home in the uncertainty of this storm. The NFL didn’t want to seem heartless though. They moved the game up 30 minutes so the players could get home a half an hour earlier!
So sweet of them to help the players out like that.
Despite it all, Miami won 20-19.
