I don't understand why Busch stadium is bidding on this and not the actually football facility the Edward jones dome.

My best guess would be the folks behind this effort want to avoid a potential conflict with a Rams game at the Jones Dome 24 hours or sooner after the ASU-Missouri game, which, as of now, I believe, is scheduled for Saturday Sept. 12, 2015. The NFL schedule for 2015 is not out yet, but the Rams could very well have a home game set for Sept. 13 that season. A large crowd--if not a sellout--would be expected if the game were in St. Louis, and cleaning up the stadium and removing any signage from the college game would take some time. Not that it can't be done: Jerry Jones & Co. have reconfigured his Taj Mahal West Stadium, including trash pickup and even repainting the end zones and logos on the field, more than once in time for a Cowboys game the next day after a college game had been held there the day before.
Speech is conveniently located between thought and action, where it frequently substitutes for both.

That's actually a moot argument. You can completely turn a stadium in under 24 hours. Georgia State, Atlanta Falcons and the Georgia Dome do that frequently.

The only difference is that the GA dome is football/soccer, where as Busch is Baseball with a football field inside.

On the flip side of that, all of the stuff inside the GA dome (from the field to all the wall decorations, etc) are all GSU. They get done taking all the GSU stuff down and getting the Falcons stuff up in about 12 hours flat, including completely changing the logos at mid-field and in both end zones.

It can be done, if needed, so the schedule conflict argument doesn't work in this situation (regarding toe Edward Jones Dome.

(just red your notes about Cowboys Stadium... yep, they do it there, too.)

Gotta have the right people (and amount of 'em) in place for something like that.

Why do they do this? It seems like you are miles from the field. I don't understand the lure to play football in baseball only stadiums.

Last year it screwed the field up really bad. I can't believe the cardinals would make that mistake again.

busch stadium officials could take a lesson from the yankees when determining how to configure their field to a football

It's not a stadium availability issue it is a matter of wanting the event. The folks at the dome are apparently making no effort to land the game, it is Busch Stadium that wants the game.

NEVER let "just good enough" be acceptable for A-State again!

y'all should check the vid I posted up at the top. Daniel was absoutely right in that both teams completely tore the outfield up and since SEMO was the designated home team, RedHawk staff and equip guys had to stay afterwards to re-sod the entire field so the Cardinals could play the following monday night

I am all for playing at Busch if it means we destroy their OF and the Cardinals have to forfeit their next home game for unplayable field conditions.

I doubt the layout would bother me much since the TV people ought to be able to overcome the issues.

Play at 2:00 Saturday in the Dome, they can clean it up from 6pm-2am..  Play Sunday Rams game at 3:00 or whatever, Busch is not good..

Sounds great.  Except the Dome doesn't want the game.

And I highly doubt the NFL is going to move the Rams game time because of an Arkansas State football game.

It's awful. But no way in hell the cardinals will tear up their infield during the season.

I attended the Notre Dame/Army game at Yankee Stadium in 2011 and have to say, it was quite awesome. I can see why the Cardinals are eager to host the game and why it would be well attended by both sides. The combination of a great stadium and good football made it worth the trip to New York, despite the awkward sight lines.

In fact, living in Tulsa, I am more inclined to attend the game at Busch than I would if it were held in Jonesboro, if only for the fact I can fly in and out and skip the 6 hour drive.

If we are going to move and the dome doesn't want it, at least Arrowhead is a football stadium and  I never turn down a chance to eat at Oklahoma Joes.
