The condition of that field on Sun was deplorable, and Goodell needs to hold Snyder accountable for refusing to maintain a safe workplace, and putting all of the players at risk.
Can you spell OSHA, anyone?

Fedex Field is probably the worst of the modern post 95 NFL stadiums. M&T Bank outclasses that stadium in every possible way. What a joke of an organization, have fun walking into an outhouse to get evaluated for injury. What a joke of an owner

The Steelers did not get sanctioned about their field against the Dolphins a few years ago and Fed-ex was in better shape then that,

Whatever happened to just playing on a dirt field? Or in the mud? Everything has to be all shiny & new. Makes me sick. Like the Super Bowl -- when are we going to get another Snow Bowl? HUH!??!

That field is the reason RG3 is having total reconstruction surgery on his right knee. The player they traded up for and gave all those picks away for quite possibly will never be the same player once again all because of that horrible condition of the field.

Dan Snyder is an embarassment to the NFL in many more ways than field condition.

As Mod 2 said, the Steelers played in a cesspool and got away with it.

Hey, you guys leave Hacksaw Dan alone! He's still paying on the contracts to Deion Sanders, Marty Schottenheimer, and FatAlbert Haynesworth. There's no way he could afford to have a decent field. :D

You read my mind. The Steelers field is worse than that field at Fedex on Sunday. If Fedex needs to change, so does Heinz.

Domes are one of the biggest reasons for offenses being ridiculous. Must be nice playing in a game like it was between spring and summer. Not too cold and not too hot. Just the perfect temperature.

Ever go outside and play in the cold? It sucks. You play much much slower, you feel everything more. Catching a ball, running, getting tackled, everything hurts a lot more. I really think they need to outlaw domes, or require the temperature to be played slightly lower. I know it defeats the purpose but it gives teams such an advantage. The Falcons have such an artificial home field advantage. An explosive offense inside a dome. Yeah, I wonder why they play so well.

I live in the DC 'burbs and I can attest to that. From suing an old Lady who could not pay her club seat contract, not allowing pedestrians to cross Landover Road to get to the Stadium and not even getting a waiver to allow the shuttle buses to continue to run from the Landover Metro thus forcing fans to walk a mile to FedEx from the Morgan Boulevard Station on the blue line, its obvious he doesn't care about the fans or his players, especially RG3.

All about that money! Which is funny, considering he could be making a lot more by cutting out stupid decisions. RG3 was his cash-cow, his most promising player in decades, and he watched him blow his knee on his own shoddy turf.

I remember when he banned signs in the stadium. The guy is a bozo.
