Game On!

The Dolphins made it clear to the NFL that they didn't want to play against the Saints Friday night, but the league refused to budge and the team was on its way to New Orleans Friday morning.

A group of Dolphins players made it clear to Coach Dave Wannstedt on Thursday that they wanted to game canceled, and the Dolphins told league officials that was the team's wish.

The concern of Dolphins players, of course, is being away from their families with Hurricane Frances on its way to South Florida this weekend.

But the game will go on.
