Listen: NFL, Mexico City, Rams discussed on NFL Live
"When again, this is the chiefs and Rams they had to Mexico City. Both games come into this game with nine and one records. But there is some uncertainty as you will see from a tweet, courtesy of our Adam Schefter. This was earlier today. Discussions continue about weather, Monday nights. Chiefs Rams game will be played in Mexico City in L A or postponed the NFL determined to play it Monday night in Mexico City. But the field is what they are calling a mess and player faith thirty could be a concern. And obviously, that's a you know, you see that. And it gets your attention feel what is going on. If you were to look at a studio OS tech right now, you would think that is nowhere close to being ready for football game. And now six days from this time and first of all a couple of things here one it's not a football field naturally. And if you've watched some of the London games there's been issue with slick surfaces playing on a soccer field. If you watch what happens when the raiders? Host home games during the baseball season. Of course, they share their stadium with the Oakland Athletics. You can see some of the ramifications there and there have been several events at Estonia west Teke that have chewed up this field that if you see a sky view right now, bird's eye view it.

And honestly, we're talking about being two of the best teams to p candidates playing in this game question own bed.

If you're gonna do something where you whatever you take care of the stadium, and whatever it would cost to be able to to shut that stadium down for an entire week or two before you play it. So that the surface can be okay. Honestly, I it's an embarrassment. I it's an embarrassment that at this point instead of talking about Jared Goff in Pat Mahomes and Todd Gurley. We're talking about the grasp being a mess in some stadium in Mexico City one hundred percent agree, and I would say this. So while it might be an embarrassment. It's also a logistical nightmare. Coach for these teams who were trying to repair, and if you prepare if you look at what the Rams have had to contend with whether it was a a an awful mass shooting, then the wildfires who have affected a lot of those employees now the uncertainty which less so but still of where they'll play this game. I mean, how do you manage this? They were going to bring they were going to bring families the whole team to Colorado to train them out to do. Now.."
