The #Seahawks have now lodged a complaint to @NFL about the #FedEx field that injured @RGIII and Chris Clemons' ACL


I agree that the field is poor, but nothing will come of this and it comes off as whiny. Didn't give either team an advantage and it helped in debilitating the Redskins' best player.

I really think the field needs to be improved though, for player safety. If the NFL truly has safety as one of their #1 priorities, they will force the Skins to improve the conditions of the field.

The Redskins should do it anyway, for RG3's sake. Kid has already been injured a few times this year, he doesn't need another thing going against him.

The NFL has specific rules about field conditions for the playoffs that have to be adhered to. They've had them since the Colts complained about the field at Foxboro.

Expect a fine to come if they didn't meet those standards.

I wish the NFL would mandate that cold weather outdoor stadiums switch to some type of synthetic surface. Chicago's is usually god awful after Halloween.

Heinz Field had arguably the worst field conditions for years when it was first opened. The field has gotten much better since then with changes and improvements.

Isn't this like the 10th time the Seahawks wanted the NFL to review something this season? I find that ironic considering how they run fake punts on incompetent opponents when up 75-0, and how they question their class moves late in the games.

If Washington gets a complaint, so should Chicago and Pittsburgh.

Everyone should do what Green Bay does. A hybrid.

Good something should be done! The field has been in crappy shape in DC for at least one month, if not two. It's a shame because I believe were are the #2 franchise as far as what we are worth in the league, and what 4th world wide? And we can't get a quality field for our players to play on?

players used to complain about the Vikings' field, rating it the worst one in the NFL.

so they changed it. complaints stopped.

Please no. Chicago's field looked perfect in every game this season, even after the Houston monsoon game.

For the first time in how long?? They've gotten a handle on the worst field in the NFL situation they had 2 years ago, but its still not very good for 2 months of the NFL season.
