An NFL official said that Kansas City and Buffalo don't have heated fields so Longwell probably has played on a field without coils but he didnt realize it. I think the players would rather play at TCF than at Soldier field. The field conditions at Soldier Field this time a year are usually a joke with sod flying everywhere.

(sigh) For the last time: Players do NOT go in to HOF per the team they played for. This has been brought up, oh, about a gagillion times now...
I swear to god, you mudducks are soooo dumb...
ALL THEIR AFFILIATIONS ARE LISTED WHEN ENSHRINED IN THE HALL you simpleton........so yes, when Favre goes in it will be noted that he is a HOF QB that played for the Vikings.......... BUT What the hell, this is why you troll, you are too dumb to have any normal intelligent convo. so you take the low road to hide your inferiority.

Apparently the heavy snow at TCF insulated the field from freezing very deep, and they are going to tarp it and thaw it some more.

I thought it was funny....players whining about hard surfaces.

The Metrodome carpet has ASPHALT under it!

Especially from bEaR players
They play on the worst surface in the NFL, it will more than likely be a step up for them.

Most likely they are still seeing the Patriots romp in the snow as if it were 75 and sunny.

Maybe we put on Patriot uniforms, we'd probably get to half time before the bEarS figured it out.

Last week the Monsters of the Midway looked anything but comfortable in the snow..........

I wonder if the Ice Bowl team members read any of the whining about The Bank and just shook their heads.

In reality, less and less of these players play because they love the game, back in the Ice Bowl, they HAD to love the game IMO.
The whining is falling on deaf ears, but when you look at the shelf life of the average NFL player, they better make their money while they can, because tomorrow it could find them intalling floor tile.

The Metrodome in perfect working order is the worst venue in the league. The surface is artificial grass and rubber pellets over asphalt.

The Bank field will be thawed but may get icy. It'll be fun. Its a running game kind of setting. Football should be played in the elements that exist. These guys can put on the extra layers and get it done.
