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...

    • Robert Krafts Classless Remark to Archie after Peyton gets 2nd ring
      Why is this shocking? Nobody ever accused Robert Kraft of being a decent human being.

      Well, at least Archie Manning doesn't have a "son" whose in prison for murder.....
    • Robert Krafts Classless Remark to Archie after Peyton gets 2nd ring
      I see what you mean. But I'm still gonna wait to hear the full extent of the conversation Kraft was having. I know some won't give him the benefit of the doubt like you said, but I just don't see what he would possibly hope to accomplish by coming out and talking trash, especially after what happened a few weeks ago.
    • Cam's Gold MVP Cleats
      The piling on continues. What is funny is that there have been many people on this board (including myself) upset at people feeding into and buying into the narrative on Peyton (can't win the big game...regular season mvp/playoff goat etc etc) and yet we jump very quickly to do the same thing to another player. Now we are criticizing the guy because the cleats he wore. The kid isn't perfect...and makes some mistakes...but he also does as much charity work as any I've seen...plays with a ton of passion on the field and seems to want to have a good time playing the game. He has his faults for sure..but it would be nice to see us give the young man room to grow up and make mistakes or at the worst have some fun playing a GAME. If we keep tearing everyone down there isn't going to be anyone to cheer for. I know my post isn't going to be popular but we aren't talking about Michael Vick here....Cam didn't kill any puppies or anything. He got upset when he had to sit next to an opponent brag about how they beat him...he made some bad plays in the game...and now he wore some flashy shoes...that he didn't even WEAR in the game..just warm ups. I'm going to take the Archie view. You would like to see the guy handle things differently..but losing is hard....very hard at that level and I think it would be nice to show some humanity and give him a break.
