Roster cuts have completely passed me by what with the more pressing issues facing the city at present :-\

From a brief look, seems we have gone for quantity rather than quality at CB. And Harris is very unlucky. Aside from that, still loving our offense - and indeed virtually every other position on the roster. Could see the Arrington IR move coming for a while as well - decent for all parties I think.

If Gustav drifts Westward as some are forecasting, I may be able to regain the enthusiasm and excitement I had for the season just two weeks ago. At present, I'll just be happy if we are even in the Dome come next Sunday...

It's drifted slightly towards NO. This could be really bad. :-[

Here one of the latest simple models out.

New Orleans is just outside the serious area.

But all the maps are conflicting, we just don't know until it hits.

Sorry I meant serious as in most serious area. Didn't realise it was on the map as the least serious area ???

That model looks bad. There have only ever been 3 category 5 huricanes to hit america and if Katrina was only a 3, this could devastate NO. Really hoping it misses or at least calms down a bit.

Re:Saints thread
 
I don't think it will make landfall as a 5. Forecasts have it weakening just before landfall from what I can tell... If it makes landfall as a 5 I truly dread to think what will happen to the city :-X

Even if it hits as a 4, this thing is stronger than Katrina and the predicted storm surges are disastrous for New Orleans.

It looks like this thing is definitely hitting New Orleans now though... Not good.

In terms of NO, it's about the storm surges. Katrina caused huge storm surges to enter the low lying western and northern banks of New Orleans. If the hurricane breaks down the levees, and then storm surges hit, then the whole metro area is at huge risk, and the Superdome could take another hit.

You have to wonder if the damage is as bad as Katrina, what are they gonna do with the city? They can't just keep re-building just to see it destroyed again.

Currently looks like the eye will be heading West of New Orleans, but that doesn't mean it's going to escape unscathed. Far from it, I'd imagine.

If it does cause severe damage, I doubt the City can recover.
