So How Bad Were Field Conditions That They Canceled Hall Of Fame Game?
Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports
Sunday night’s Hall of Fame game between the Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts was canceled due to unsafe field conditions. Here's the lowdown on those field conditions, per NFL.com...

According to several sources familiar with the field preparation, things went awry after the subsequent painting of logos in the middle of the field and in the end zones on Sunday. Improper paint may have been used, and when it did not seem to be drying quickly enough, someone apparently made the dubious decision to heat the field in an effort to dry it — thus melting the rubber pellets inside the FieldTurf and creating a slick, sticky and (in Baker’s words) “congealed” effect.

At one point about 2.5 hours before the game, stadium workers applied a substance that appeared to be paint thinner in an effort to remedy the issue. However, according to a Packers source, one Green Bay employee noticed a label that warned of severe burns when exposed to skin and took a photo of it, showing it to others after the teams later retreated to their respective locker rooms.

Why anybody would buy the used turf from the Superdome and try to re-install it somewhere makes no sense.

This is why football should only be played only on natural grass, just as God intended it.

Randy Moss the commentator is really really good. He seems to have really matured as a person and I find myself agreeing with most of his insights.

Should have hired the ground crew from Alex Box...

So basically it had nothing to do with the actual field (well at least to start) but everything to do with incompetence of ground crew.
