Did u guys see tonights Pittsburgh Steelers game? The field got absolutely destroyed! It was soaked and everyone was sliding every which way. Not very Safe. I bet they will have to re-sod for next week.

The field conditions were unreal!!! They had just laid that sod ontop of old sod.
Did you see some of those divots in the field? :dizzy:

sod on top of sod.....atleast 2 inches of rain laying on the feild....and something like 4 or 5 high school games played on the feild over the weekend

the new sod was just finished being put down yesterday before the game that sod was a waste of 100k

yeah I never understood why coaches allow the AD's to lay sod on top like that. Waste of money and risks injuries....Just get out the spray paint and paint it green so I looks good for TV...

I think their decision to resod through the night came back and bit them as only 3 whole points where scored in the last 20 seconds. All I watched were the last 17 seconds and that wasn't even worth watching.

Maybe they'll think twice about having the High-School championships there next year.

I find it hard to beleive they let so many games be played on that field in mid-seaon NFL.

Its probably all about $. I think some really poor decisions were made (of course its easy to say that after having seen the mess!). I'll bet the grounds supervisor resisted putting in the sod, but got overuled by the bigwigs. Now he's the guy who'll probably get blamed for the poor conditions.

Should've used sand in my opinion........Green sand. lol

Now he's the guy who'll probably get blamed for the poor conditions. of course....

of course....

yeah and if the whole thing was a sucess theyd be praising the big shots who decided on it and saved all that money

I KNOW. What's up with that? geeessshh? :hammerhead:

Me and my dad were talking about this before the game that field just got destroyed!

11-27-2007, 09:45 PM
watch the bowl games this year....you will see alot of "chunking" of the turf for this very reason....they want it green for tv, and while its a disadvantage, it is equal for both teams....still not the best way to play though.... and you miss a catch on account of tripping over an edge of sod....

i also saw on espn that grounds crews were running around the field with pitch forks poking holes to help with drainage:laugh:

11-27-2007, 10:00 PM
that was a joke:dizzy:

11-27-2007, 10:02 PM
I am also surprised by the lack of sub-air systems on professional sports fields.

I especially loved the one replay after Miami punted the ball and you could see the football just sink nose first into the turf like a bomb!

That was hilarious! :laugh:
