I hope the asbestos fumes and rats don't tear it up while it's stored in that crap hole.

That looks pretty nice. Maybe they should use it on Sundays.

As someone that played and practiced on Astroturf for years, I can safely say that AstroTurf is the Devil.

I think I still have some stuck in my skin 12 years later.

This is a new and improved AstroTurf.

The one thing I really hate about this stuff is the way it looks on tv. Its all shiny.

With this temporary synthetic turf application being different that other NFL stadium permanent applications, don't fool yourselves.......SEAMS are going to be a very real potential problem. When the velcro process is used to lay down a permanent application, it must be put down "perfectly" one time only. When the velcro process is used to lay down temporary application, it must be put down "perfectly" every time. In other words, it requires ongoing work crew perfection. My confidence in a one-time only scenario?.......slightly guarded but very high. My confidence in a 50 plus scenario?........I wouldn't take it to Las Vegas.

Which is fine but the players still prefer playing on grass.

AJ, OD and some others don't practice when they go onto the field turf inside the practice bubble.
