I don't have a dog in this fight, but wouldn't you think the NFL had  to approve the surface before any game was play? Shit they fine players for they socks not the right height and shirts untucked.

Think of all the games that were basically played at The Vet on concrete with metal plates and seems around where the baseball paths and bases were covered.  It does seem like the NFL should bear some of the responsibility, but its not like they are going to cancel a game at the last minute because of some flaw in the playing surface.

Well, it was only a preseason game but the HOF Game was cancelled a couple of years ago due to the wrong paint being used..

Tony Sparano dead at 56?????

 

Just read that.  He had been to hospital with chest pains earlier this week but released.  Was unresponsive this morning when his wife tried to wake him to go to church.

But we got 3 posts closer to the bottom of the page :P

If you click the circle, or star if you have posted on a topic, that is to the left of the title it takes you to the 1st unread post.  If you do that you don't need to look at them, unless somebody quotes that post again.
