He will lose. DC would make too much money for them not to allow the team to move there.

Re: Field Condition

I've seen games in DC where there were large puddles on the field and players were hydroplaning on the water. This is nothing.
Hogs root in the mud....thats football.

Its amazing that DC is poised once again to mess this up. I have said often that its only a matter of time before the name is changed but DS will change it when he wants not because of some demand or recommendation from the Mayor.

Re: Field Condition

Hard to imagine the name change thing ever happening. Just not enough public outcry to force Snyder's hand for one... i.e nobody really cares. Second, countless court battles have been found in the team's favor.

Not happening.

I tent to believe your right with the name. No one actually cared. This is the second or third highest valued team, I doubt the NFL would really even consider such a change to one of the games most iconic teams.

I think people do care because I hear them talk about it and they think it should be changed.

I dont see the name being changed by force but it will be changed by the organization when they decide the time is right. That time might be in 1 year or it might be in 10 years but the time will come. Kind of like Augusta National and female members.

Re: Field Condition

Looking at the field in Denver it clearly is a victim of a full seasons use but they sure have made it look pretty decent for this game. A little envious. Maybe the FedEx grounds crew is to blame.

I haven't commented before, but a few thoughts:

1) the first thing I heard the Sirius announcing crew today said what a bad condition the denver field is in.

2) Heinz Field does some rework on their field midway through the season

3) at 3 - 6 and not having had a home playoff game in 13 years, I imagine Snyder has been cheap on the end of season field. By the time we were back in the chase, I doubt they could have done much to make it better.

4) I expect that going forward, we will at the least follow the same procedures Heinz uses

People that talk about it are few and far between. It's just not an issue that has enough public backing.

Comparing this to Augutsa is a bit of a stretch.

Why would the team change it voluntarily without being pressured? When the time is right? What does that even mean?

Re: Field Condition

Maybe where you are people dont talk about it but where I am they do and they arent few and far between.

I guess you'd have to ask Augusta why they decided the time was right and I'm not sure they could really even give you an answer. If I knew when the time is right I could tell you when this will go down but i dont know when t is or what it means. There isnt and wont be a logical reason why the time is right but the decision will be made and that's when the time will be right.

They have a hybrid field. If you scroll back a page or two there is an article written about the surface.

Re: Field Condition

Hybrid or not, their field sure doesn't look so hot.
