Dolphins move halftime field goal try 20 yards closer

If someone wins that contest at halftime of Sunday’s Raiders-Dolphins game, I want half of the money.

Thanks in part to our post that pointed out the ridiculous decision to hinge $10,000 on making a 60-yard field goal, the Dolphins have moved the tee 20 yards closer to the goal posts.

So now it will be a 40-yard try.  Three of the folks who showed up for a free melanoma screening in June will attempt the kick.  (As at least one of you have pointed out, the normal skin-cancer demographic suggests that the contestants will look more like Ed Asner than Morten Andersen.)

Hey, at least they’re not offering $10,000 to anyone who knocks Carson Palmer out of the game.
