Move the Bears - Vikings game indoors

Stupid.

The decision for the Vikings to play the Bears Monday night at the open U of Minnesota stadium is difficult to understand.

The field will be frozen solid. It’s like playing on concrete in 15 degree weather. That’s dangerous to a lot of expensive beef. Those guys are athletes, not gladiators. The home field advantage is simply not worth the risk. After all, the Vikings are statistically out of the race for glory.

Where the hell is the player’s union? This macho is misplaced.

George, you should remember the Ice Bowl, when the Dallas Cowboys played at Green Bay for the NFL Championship back in the 1960s.

The temp was -13 and the field was ice. A great game, barely won by Green Bay.

Guys playing indoors these days are wusses.

i agree. from the moment i first heard about this outdoor decision -- on monday night, no less -- i thought DUMB, DUMB, DUMB. if i were favre, i'd retire now, although i hear he's saying 'no way' is he going to play. also, it wasn't worth an alexander hamilton to help shovel the stadium. DUMB, DUMB, DUMB. d
