NFL Announces Dolphins-Chiefs Game Moved To Friday; Game To Be Shown In Local Markets Only
October 20, 2005


To accommodate the South Florida community in preparing to deal with the approach of Hurricane Wilma, the Miami Dolphins' home game against the Kansas City Chiefs has been rescheduled for Friday, October 21 at 7:00 p.m. ET at Dolphins Stadium, the NFL announced in conjunction with both teams and local authorities. The game originally was scheduled to be played on Sunday, October 23, at 1:00 p.m. ET.


The television blackout has been lifted for the game, and the contest will be broadcast live in the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale and Kansas City home territories by CBS.

Stations carrying the game live in the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale market are WFOR (CBS 4) in Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, WPEC (Channel 12) in West Palm Beach and WINK (Channel 11) in Ft. Myers.

Moving the game to Friday will enable emergency personnel and others in the South Florida community to focus on preparing for the approach of Hurricane Wilma.

As previously announced, the schedule of the Hall of Fame celebration that was planned over the coming days has also been changed. The Dan Marino Ring Presentation Ceremony has been moved to halftime of the Dolphins-Atlanta Falcons game to be played on November 6 at 1:00 p.m. In addition, the team’s Orange Carpet Gala to honor all of the Club’s Hall of Famers, which was scheduled for this Saturday, has been moved to Saturday, November 5, at 7:00 p.m. Finally, the Miami Dolphins Hall of Fame Exhibition, featuring the busts of all nine Dolphins Hall of Famers, will be open From Wednesday, October 26 – Saturday, November 5.

“As in the past, we recognize unusual circumstances and will address them appropriately on a case-by-case basis,” said Dolphins Enterprises CEO Joe Bailey.

This is the third straight year and fifth time in the last five seasons that the Dolphins have had to change a contest’s date, time or venue for a variety of reasons

Since 1992, the Dolphins have had to alter the date, time or venue of a game six previous times, with this being the seventh, and the Dolphins are 3-3 in such games. Last year, they dropped a 17-7 decision to the Tennessee Titans on Saturday, September 11, at Pro Player Stadium, in a game originally scheduled to be played on Sunday, September 12, but was moved up a day because of the threat of Hurricane Ivan. The Dolphins also lost a 13-3 contest to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, September 26, 2005. That game was moved from a 1:00 p.m. kickoff to a 8:30 p.m. kickoff because of Hurricane Jeanne.

First I hear'd a that.

Since my locals (cable) run the KC game broadcast on an otherwise "dead" channel will they still be able to for this game?...

It's pretty absurd that this has happened several times in the past, and the NFL still doesn't have the foresight to create a contingency plan to get these games on TV. How much revenue are they pissing away by not planning for this scenario?

I'm surprised to. I figured the NFL would be all over this and try to put it in primetime on CBS or even ESPN. Very surprised.

can someone explain the logic behind the nfl not allowing the game to be shown outside the competing teams cities? i don't know why they wouldn't just leave it up to the local affiliates.
