I would love to see an inquiry about how the decision was made to not postpone the N.C. State vs. Notre Dame football game on Saturday amidst Hurricane Matthew.
As a Wolfpack fan, I drove to the game and stuck it out only until the second quarter. On my drive home, I saw three separate road accidents and standing water warnings.
Gov. Pat McCrory and numerous other officials were warning people to stay off the roads.
I accept responsibility for making the questionable choice to brave the hurricane and get to the game with my buddies, but who exactly accepts responsibility for playing the noon game despite the ominous forecasts? We know that TV contract monies dominate collegiate sports, but could it be that ABC could actually have been the key decision-maker?
Never miss a local story.
When it comes to North Carolinians’ safety, authorities should err on the side of precaution not danger. So I ask, is it Debbie Yow or McCrory or Disney who decides that a game should be played during a hurricane?
