    I think the NHL and NFL have both learned lately that you cant charge premiums for crappy preseason games.

    What a disaster that was. A shortened field due to unsafe playing conditions? Perhaps the NFL will learn its lesson and stick to Britain when it wants to wander outside of its comfort zone.

    BT - did you forget the cancelled game in Mexico City due to poor field conditions last season?

    NFL falling flat on its face is always a bonus.

    It just sucks because my city (not staying it had a great rep to begin with) is really taking the blame from NFL people who can never blame the Shield for their problems.

    Some really dumb opinions on Twitter and online boards today that isnt deserved. I've even some trying to pin this on the CFL of all things.

    Maybe I shouldn't even care about their opinions if they arent viewing it objectively, I'm just afraid of what they are spreading....

    They had to cancel the Hall of Fame Game 3 years ago because they ****ed up the field too.

    Hall of Fame Game canceled due to field concerns

    The NFL needs to go back to Toronto.

    (Easy Chris Jericho joke here, folks.)
