So who gets punished for the Miami-Seattle sprinkler system?

If the NFL doesn't punish someone, you're going to get teams thinking they have a "get out of jail free" card to punish an opposing team's ground game.

How this happened in a game I will never know. This trumps the one time the fog machine went out of control during a basketball game. At least the fog doesn't make the ground slippery!

If teams intentionally destroy their field to handicap the opponent I think the removal of a draft pick is in order. Teams wouldn't dare to try it if this was the punishment.

All proceeds from the fines will go to Buffalo Wild Wings for making more "sprinkler" commercials. :)

Funny you should mention that....

Because the Buffalo Wild Wings corporate office tweeted something along the lines of....

"Oops. Guess someone was really, really into that game and wanted it to go longer!"

Pretty darn funny! Corporate types aren't generally known for having a good sense of humor.... perhaps this was the exception to the rule....

LOL, Buffalo wild Wings...

Anyway, no big deal. Sun Life uses prescription athletic turf system. There is no muddy spots, drains itself quickly. Being Florida, it is likely a southern turf like St. Augustine or Floratam on a sand base (even natural soil in FL is very sandy and drains exceptionally quick too) over a system of irrigation and drainage pipes. You could have a typical Florida summer deluge of an inch or two per hour per hour (or tropical depressions/storms etc..) and it would be ready in short order. Colts won a Super Bowl in constant medium to heavy rain on that very field in February 2007, sloppy play because of wet, but neither was Thomas Jones nor our running game (Rhodes Addai) wasn't hampered that night. ;)

Non issue... a few moments from sprinklers...

    • Excellent compassion there given the thin eyebrows, high cheekbones, & similar noses. Like a facial recognition match. Nice work NBGMI! 
    • Yeah it's pretty easy to make fun of Grigson at this point. It's also easy to forget the positive things he did do for the Colts. Things went south for Grigson in two seasons and it cost him his job. How much of that was due to the rumored riff between Grigson and Pagano we will more than likely never know. Reading all the negative things said about Grigson just seems more like a piling on rather than the total truth. The old saying about things are never as good as they seem and never as bad as they seem IMO holds true as far a Grigson is concerned.
    • The team as a whole has gotten so much younger compared to last year.......   Mathis is probably having trouble figuring out if he is at practice, or Daycare picking up his kids.....
    • That is a great freaking song. No doubt about it CBE.    I will always remember Adam Sandler singing 'Love Stinks" in the movie The Wedding Singer too. 
    • Cards lost, so the Standings heading into May 26th in the NL Central are: Cubs 25-21 Brew Crew 25-22 - .5 Cards 23-21 - 1 Reds 22-24 - 3 Pirates 22-26 - 4 The World Champs back on top!
