Again, not just you but many on here, you haven't thought all ancillaries through.

There are thousands of people making hourly wages tomorrow that would not be able to do so later in the week due to scheduling commitments. The Chiefs and the NFL make money whether the game is played on Sunday, Monday, or at 3 in the morning on Wednesday.

The vendors shuffling up and down the stairs, the bellhops working their asses off in the nearby hotels, the servers at many local restaurants, etc will not make money just before Christmas if the date is changed. If I am hawking Miller Lite at the stadium for an hourly wage, not getting any tips because the price is already ridiculous, and straining up and down those stairs to make a few extra pennies for Christmas for my kids, I would be upset if I couldn't do it on Monday night because I am back at my full time job then.

Why is it that businesses are painted as evil entities regardless of their decisions?
