    Dolphins at Steerlers: Delayed due to lightning

    Players and media forced to leave the field because of lightning. Not sure how long the delay will last. Not set to kickoff until 7:30ish anyways, but it'll be after that now.

    Re: Dolphins at Steerlers: Delayed due to lightning

    They are now repainting the lines on this soggy mess, as the rain washed the paint off because it was fresh just before it rained.

    What a mess.

    The field looks absolutely ugly. There are basically no yardlines and there are puddles everywhere. What a mess.

    I was going to bet on the over, until I saw the mess.. Not sure there will be a lot of scoring here.

    There are the goal lines painted and maybe 3 or 4 other 5-yard interval line painted on the field - that's it.

    I don't think I've seen a field this bad in the NFL ever.

    Heinz field isn't that old. You would think they would have far better drainage that what it looks like. How much rain has fallen?

    Re: Dolphins at Steerlers: Delayed due to lightning

    One thing making it worse is they just laid new sod on top of the old sod yesterday, and then it rained a ton. The old sod was rather beat up as Friday there was 4 or 5 HS games on that field and then a college game there Saturday.

    Being a Miami fan myself, this has been a tough year. I was really considering splurging for Sunday Ticket so I could watch the fish, wow, that was a good call.

    That being said, I really want them to get at least 1 win, they cannot be the worst team in history.

    Re: Dolphins at Steerlers: Delayed due to lightning

    It would be ironic if Miami owned the worst and the best record in history.

    On the lines, with the blue and yellow lines, you'd think they could place the field white lines "on the field" as well.

    Ben recovers a fumble and slides about 4 yards. Well, I can't confirm that as the lines are not there.

    Well, Mary Jane...er....Ricky's first carry for like 200 years was for 3-4 yards and a first down.
