Well now, all you youngins get a chance to see a game played in conditions the way it used be.

I hear some players are "concerned about their health".

Friggin candyasses. Vince Lombardi would turn over in his grave.

The way I see it, weather-wise, is if the snow doesn't come in bunches soon this game wouldn't even make the top 50 in bad weather games.

I still find it unbelievable Minnesota players were complaining they shouldn't play.

That was freaking pretty. Nice catch for numb fingers. The throw was right in stride too.

You think Favre loves football yet? He's playing for nothing and lining up for body slams like that in 20 degree weather.

Doesn't mean he's not a dbag off field....

Agree. I can't help but love what he is on the field. The guy is tough and he's one of the best ever, but off the field I can't stand him.

Now he's hurt, I just hope the banks are still planning on being open tomorrow.

Let's be clear on what exactly they were complaining about... the snow has nothing to do with it.

All 32 NFL teams fields have a special kind of heater under the turf to warm up the ground in cold weather. The UM field does not have this heater so the turf froze like a solid block of ice. Concussions are their main concern which I find to be a legitimate explaination. They had four external heaters trying to warm up the ground but they were not very effective considerng that they only were able to warm up one side of the field. The Minnesota punter guaranteed a concussion if somebody's helmet comes down on the ground funny.

And Farve got one kind of early...

Though that may have happened on any surface with that kind of hit.

About 40 games on the theoretical list had no heaters either. If you want to talk about a hard surface I present all games played on original Astrodome turf and all games played at the old Vet and I'm sure I leave out a field or two. If you don't think those were rock hard surfaces I don't know what to tell you.

My theoretical list is just an opinion from a guy who saw games in an era you didn't although some were before my time, but still just an opinion.

All I wanted to do was clarify what you thought they were compaining about which was snow... that was inaccurate. It was the block of ice they're playing on.

I have no doubt that the Astrodome is hard as well as the old Verterans stadium. Speaking of the Astrodome... I have met Earl Campbell several times. Lipreadng him is a doozy. It seems like that his speech is slurred. I'm not saying the field at the dome did this but that man has been concussed one time too many.

The NFL is cracking down on player safety in a big way yet they're letting this one slide. I see their argument. They're playing anyway aren't they?

Ok. You brought up the hard surfaces so I merely pointed out this game is nothing new. Neither is the cold, neither is the snow.

My original point was this might not make the top 50 in bad weather games. Bad weather, I might add, made for the hard surface just like it did for the hard nipples thoughout the place. :D

Some players, or a punter/kicker?
