Bears demand 'illegal towel' penalty because Soldier Field is sloppy

The Chicago Bears drove into San Francisco 49ers territory before halftime when Chicago scored for a 47-yard field goal. The Niners’ special team isn’t the only team battling the Bears as they line up to play: Chicago also had to contend with rainy conditions at Soldier Field, which helped create a sloppy, fringe unplayable game site.

Holder and rookie punter Trenton Gill took out a towel and wiped a spot on the field as the Bears prepared for a field goal. When the ball was stolen, officials blew the game and awarded the Bears a 15-yard penalty for illegal towel use.

The Bears were forced to punt and the 49ers took a 7-0 lead into the half. It’s a game.

Only a team as incompetent as the Bears could be called for such a vague penalty.

) Here is the penalty kick awarded by the referee:

No one on the pitch could believe what they saw :

Trenton Gilin With an unsportsmanlike penalty for bringing a towel on the pitch, #Bears have been eliminated from the FG range. — Brad Biggs (@BradBiggs) September 11, 2022

LOL, illegal towels in Chicago The call kills a FG Chicago opportunity. — Jon Greenberg (@jon_greenberg) September 11, 2022

Bears holder Trenton Gill has just been called for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for bringing a towel onto the field while trying to dry the kicking area before attempting a shot. – Field Yates (@FieldYates) September 11, 2022

No Joy League strikes again. Bears owner Trenton Gill was flagged as unsportsmanlike for taking a towel to wipe down the field. It’s not just a little wet.

To start saying whenever I don’t want to “I’d rather wipe Soldier Field with a towel” when doing something.

Hopefully no serious injuries on such a bad playing field. Soldier Field grass has been unacceptable for too long.
