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...

      My morning routine involves a devotional and then 80s on 8 on XM(Gospel on Sundays) but also not much of a SportsTalk Fan unless they are talking JY3 and/or Princeton but my Sister listens to them daily during the school year

      An improved line will be very helpful, too.   I remember Moncrief last year talking about a package called the 'Indy 500', where he, Dorsett, and TY were all on the field going deep.   With those 3 WRs we have 3 sub 4.4 guys, plus we have a few more burners in the guys competing for the 4th (and possibly 5th/6th WR spot).    There shouldn't be a secondary in the league that can match that group consistently, assuming Luck has a little bit of time to let plays develop. 
    • Preseason might be revealing
      I'd like 18 too. but i dont see the NHL as brutal as the NFL. not near the collisions.
    • TY Hilton loves playing for Chud
      Yeah T.Y. Is a real competitor. I remember Pagano at the podium after the Jags loss last season saying he wasn't embarrassed but then they interviewed Hilton and he said he was embarrassed by the last lost too (against the Steelers). That's when I realized how competitive he is. He should really be voted a team captain this season.
    • The coaches have the ball.
      This is what i see too.  I'm also concerned about depth at WR.  Really on TY and Moncrief have experience. The rest really are question marks at this point.  Last year we seemed sobdeep.  Was it just AJ? Fleener boosted the wr corps too. i'm optimistic, but i dont see the huge talent increase some here do. we do have fresh faces and bodies, along with many coming off IR. im gonna hope thats enuff.  But i still think we need another solid draft to fill some holes.

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.

      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
