Fisher watches team facility as flood rises at LP Field

J. Fisher.jpgWhile LP Field in Nashville floods, Titans coach Jeff Fisher has been standing watch at the team’s practice facility across town.

He heard about the flooding, and headed to Baptist Park Sports Facility despite the area being closed by city officials.  Fisher told the Nashville City Paper that he was one of only a handful of people in the building — mostly security staff. 

Water rose to edge of the practice fields and the [indoor practice
field] bubble but has fallen back some,” Titans media relations director Robbie Bohren told the Tennessean.

Efforts are continuing to sandbag the levee near their facility.

“It’s close, but there has been absolutely no damage,” Fisher said.

The same can’t be said for LP Field.  The Titans tweeted that the service level of the stadium is taking water.  This includes the locker rooms,
loading dock, press conference rooms, and concession facilities.

It appears the water on LP Field is coming up from below, through the drainage system.

  3. Hopefully it floods all the way and floats off down the river,Lame team in a lame town anyway.
    Should have never left Houston, and should still be called the Oilers.

  4. LAME TEAM AND TOWN? HOUSTON MAYBE BUT TENNESSE COM’ON MAN-THEY HAVE DONE MORE IN TENN IN THE LAST 5 YEARS THAN IN OILERS HISTORY

  5. They should be blaring Led Zepplin over the PA system… “When The Levee Breaks”

  6. Thanks people…really makes me feel great. I’ve lost almost everything I own. I come here and read some news about the Titans, a team I don’t even like, but I follow them because it is where I live. All these comments are smartass and stupid. People have died. People have lost everything, and all you can do is make fun of them. What a shame.

  7. “# robert ethan says: May 3, 2010 5:57 PM
    Tennessee Titanics.”
    Laughed way too hard at this

  8. Hopefully the flood will extend to DC and float fat ass Albert back to where he belongs.

  9. must be all texans fan sheesh folks have lost family ,thier homes and some think it is funny ………….. i am a proud titans fan …………. next time houston support your team and it wont have to move again and GROW UP!!!

  10. American, I’m sorry for you loss, but are you new to the Internet or something?

  11. They should still be the Oilers. Baltimore should not have a team, and Big Ben should be in jail.
    O-H…

  12. Child_Please! said “Should have never left Houston, and should still be called the Oilers.”
    I feel your pain.!! In our case, they shouldn’t be called the colts.
    Crabcake from Baltimore, former Baltimore Colts fan.

  13. I’m glad profootballtalk is still a haven for spineless F_cks. Our city has been destroyed and all you can do is kick people while they are down. At least we will come to your aid when your blip on the radar gets wiped out. Because we’re the volunteer state, and that’s what we do. Titan up!

  14. Good luck to the folks in Tenn I have not heard of anyone rioting or shotting at rescue choppers
    Nor has anyone been raped or murdered at the Field so your leeps and bounds ahead of NO’s
    I wish you all well and I hope your homes and families are safe and secure
    God Bless

    Tn is the best state to live in …………. TITAN UP!!!

  16. This whole situation sucks, people losing their homes to flooding and such. I couldn’t imagine. I feel for you, and think everyone on here does too.
    But the comments are still funny. When all else fails, humor prevails.

  17. fair enough. i get it. i guess the comments just got to me.
    i guess its better than living in cleveland.

  18. American….ANYTHING is better than living in Cleveland.
    I am from Nashville, and live in Nashville. We will get through this, and we will come out better than ever. Maybe now we will get a next-turf field and throw this real grass crap out once the field is completely compromised by the flood.
    To all of those who are making disparaging comments about the Titans, Nashville, and TN as a whole: it is obvious those of you making the comments are those who aren’t from here, never lived here, or have never visited here. The Titans are a class organization with a class coach. Tennessee is one of the most aesthetically pleasing states in the Union. Nashville is one of the best cities to live in, and everyone here is amicable and nice to be around, unlike the cities filled with spiteful, hateful sports fans (See NYC, Chicago, Boston, etc.). We would all be better off if you kept the misery and distaste you call your lives to yourselves.
    Go Titans.

  19. We may be underwater, but we are not under “indictment” Steeler, Philly, Giants, Miami, Browns, Cincy, and TB fans. Oh, and btw, should we ask if the Dept. of Water and Power’s mother is she was a whore? Maybe it will “shock him” and get a reaction so he will do his job better!!!

  22. Although the Colt’s and Oilers should have never left in the first place, you have to question those idiot’s Taglibue and (his at the time sidekick), Goodell. They gave Jacksonville and Carolina teams, instead of strong football cities like Baltimore and Houston!
    Hell, even LA should have had another team before Jacksonville! It’s in the past though. Cleveland folk are just mad cause their new, (same team) still suck’s and will continue to do so under that fake-ass GM.

  23. “He heard about the flooding, and headed to Baptist Park Sports Facility despite the area being closed by city officials.”
    Probably trying to recover the hundreds of thousands of dollars he’s embezzled out of a freezer, a la William J. Jefferson during the Katrina crap.

  24. Lol I love the picture selected for the article, the look on his face makes it look like he might be watching the flooding right there, with his headset on and all 😀
