The Oakland Raiders and Green Bay Packers played their preseason game in Winnipeg, Canada last night. After the condition for the field was deemed as unsafe, the field was shortened to just 80 yards.
A hole in the end zone has forced the Raiders and Packers to play on an 80-yard field in Winnipeg. Yes, 80 yards, no kick-offs, all starters will sit it out and...— Don Van Natta Jr. (@DVNJr) August 23, 2019
Is God an executive producer of Hard Knocks?
Due to the field being cut 20 yards shorter, all kickoffs were eliminated from the game.
The issue mounted because of the field goal posts for the NFL and the CFL are in different spots in the end zone.
Should the NFL just stop trying to play games out of the country? They seem to be the only major sport that constantly has issues tying to play games outside of the United States.
Last year, they had a game scheduled for Mexico City that fell through as well.
Even though the NFL has done well with other countries as far as memorabilia and viewership, there has to come to a point where you stop embarrassing yourselves.
