HEINZ FIELD NEEDS SEALED OFF FROM ALL PITTSBURGH TEAMS OTHER THAN THE PITTSBURGH STEELERS
Did the field make
Ben slip on fourth and one? Why does every other team in the
Pittsburgh area have access to Heinz Field BEFORE the Steelers ever get to
take the field? Enough is enough. Now the team potentially
could have won a game it otherwise lost and the field is in question as
Aren't the revenue streams created by the Pittsburgh Steelers sufficient
enough that they deserve the highest quality field to play on? I
don't get it. In 2007 when the Steelers played the Dolphins in the
Heinz Muck Bowl they were lucky to actually win. Now you can say the
team potentially DID lose as a result of a critical moment being decided
by an unsatisfactory field, failing Ben Roethlisberger's footing.
How many teams let High School and College teams tear up their home field? How many NFL teams play on their field after others tear it up? Is that not one of the reasons the Dolphins left the Orange Bowl? The Steelers have their own stadium but they get last crack at the field every week?
