Wow.

With all the uproar coming about from the week 11 showdown between the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs potentially needing to play on a field that doesn’t look to be in good shape in Mexico City (Azteca Stadium), players are seriously considering holding out of the game:

That is a bombshell.

The NFL is currently deciding whether or not the game will be played in Mexico City as originally planned or whether they’ll move the game to Los Angeles and effectively give the Rams their home game back. This is certainly a way to sway the decision by the players who’s health absolutely needs to be of the utmost importance anyways.

The NFL has until the end of today to decide what they want to do, but one thing is clear: even though the game would be awesome in Mexico City, it simply isn’t worth jeopardizing the players’ health.


UPDATE:

And now we wait for the conclusion...
