All of that has only served to overshadow the real news coming out of New Orleans: There will never be a blue field in the NFL.
The league voted on Tuesday to require teams to keep their playing surface green. This is known as the “Boise rule” in reference to Boise State’s field.
The measure will prevent any team from making their field blue or orange or purple or whatever strange color that a sponsor could possibly pay for.
No team has publicly tried such a stunt, but the passage of the rule this year makes us wonder if some team was going to try.
Perhaps Pink Taco was trying to get into the football business again.
