Golden Nuggets: Levi's Stadium field off to a rough start

Friday, August 22, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning ladies and gentlemen. I hope you're all enjoying TURFGATE over at Levi's Stadium. Obviously, it's a legitimate concern and worth talking about ... it's kind of shameful that over $1 billion was spent on this thing and we have such significant issues. They will get fixed, which is why I think the panic is a little overblown, but it's definitely disappointing. I'm glad that nobody appeared to get hurt on the field.

In other news, I'll be livestreaming some Madden NFL 15 on Twitch and embedding it here on the front page on Saturday. Just wanted to give some of you a heads up. It will generally just be me playing as the San Francisco 49ers, playing against either the Seattle Seahawks, Dallas Cowboys or somebody that we all hate like that. I'm not particularly good, or interesting but hey, could be fun, right?

I'll also be needing an opponent during the regular season for some weekly Madden features, so if any of you plan on picking the game up for Xbox One and want to beat me every week, let me know. Onto your links for the day.
