    Field Goal Nets

    Anyone know why we don't have them?

    The fewer distractions for our kickers the better

    Because the camera is usually going to the left or right of the goal posts. Allstate wouldn't get their money's worth in ad dollars.


    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    Because nobody used to sit behind the field goal posts. Now it's a different story.

    Re: Field Goal Nets

    I am fine with no nets. I've caught either a game ball or practice kick at least once every year the SEZ has existed. Lots of fun to catch and throw back. Wish we could keep the ball. The cost of a net or ball won't get us to bowling it in any faster. My 9 year old son threw his first back this year, even made it past the railing onto the field.

    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."
