Lights Out At Candlestick Park

This week's Monday Night Football game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Pittsburgh Steelers was delayed not once, but twice, because of a power outage at Candlestick Park.  The 49ers said that an off-site transformer may have been the cause of the nearly half-hour delay in starting the game.  The second outage occurred during the second quarter delaying the game about 16 minutes.  So what would have happened if the lights had not come back on?  You'd better believe that the NFL has a rule covering such circumstances.  According to the ESPN NFL West Blog, the 2011 NFL Rulebook states, "If the game must be called due to a state or municipal law, or by darkness if no lights are available, an immediate report shall be made to the Commissioner by the home club, visiting club and officials.  On receipt of all reports the Commissioner shall make a decision which will be final."  The NFL stated that if the game had been unable to be completed last night, it would have been finished today, possibly in Oakland.

 

One of my favorite supermodels and NFL SuperFan, Marisa Miller was in attendance to support her 49ers and tweeted during the power outage.
