When you heard that the NFL cancelled the annual Hall of Fame Game on Sunday due to poor field conditions at Tom Benson Stadium, you probably assumed that there was a torrential downpour in Canton, Ohio, or something like that. But no! It turns out that’s not what happened at all. The game was cancelled because the paint they used in the end zones and on the logo at midfield had hardened like concrete.

There are conflicting stories as to why this happened. At first ESPN reported that crews had simply used the wrong paint. However, subsequent reports suggested that the problems really started when crews tried to use heat to dry the paint, inadvertently melting the little rubber pellets in the artificial turf.

Either way, the main take away here is that it was human error that caused the problem, not mother nature. And the internet reacted accordingly.

Take a look at the Tweets:

Hey NFL, next year you may want to check on the status of the field a few days before the game.
