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...

    • Josh Ferguson!!!!!
      Odds are next year we'll be taking an OLB in the first round.   Perhaps a RB in the 2nd.     He'll be a very good back,  but he won't be Fournette or Chubb or McCaffrey.   But he'll be very, very good.       Next year's class is shockingly deep and talented.    A very rare class of RB's.   We should be able to get a very good one in the 2nd round.

      He catches the ball well and especially downfield. Ferguson could end up being a good 3rd down option. I have no idea what he brings to the table on ST`s.
    • Offensive Line-Why is it so hard & my belief we have turned the corner
      I get that, but that kind of attitude is exactly why our line has been so disappointing. Its mostly these mid round picks that a lot of people seem to think are adequate. There is a reason guys like Kelly go in the first round despite that attitude.     
    • Offensive Line-Why is it so hard & my belief we have turned the corner
      I got no problem with him at all.  I think the problem for some people is they feel most 1st rounders should be "position" guys like QB, RB, WR, etc.  This guy plays in the trenches and many feel those guys can be had later in the draft, and they can.  But when you have a prospect such as Mayock claims he is I don't see why it is such a "reach" to take him anywhere in the draft.  Put it this way, if this guy turns out to be the next Saturday then it will have been WELL worth the pick.  At worst he is likely a mere solid player for many years.   I was happy with the decision as well.  In truth, I was HOPING we could take one of the top pass rushers then address OL in round 2 but it didn't materialize.  Yes, Lawson was there but I'm not sure he is top level like Kelly is at his position.  They got the best prospect at his position in a position of need.  Great job IMHO.  Only time will tell if it was the right decision.
    • Your way way way too early Super Bowl predictions?
      Chiefs vs Cardinals.  Who knows, it might actually happen (although I won't be holding my breath)
