    Would have been more honorable to forfeit.

    honor is a interesting word. If the field was not playable its up to the officials to call the game not the owners.

    So the officials ruled it playable that's it end of story.

    Technically, I guess you're right Richard, however as an owner what does playing on that say about your respect for the game and your players. The apology is hollow.
