    Do players like the field turf over real grass?

    I think Reliant will end up going this way. Maybe they'll even bring back the colored endzones from our first game. They were nice to look at.

    They did a survey in 2003 or 2004 and the players ranked Field Turf way above Astro Turf but below grass.

    The Dynamo play at Robertson Stadium along with the Coogs and the grass there is in excellent condition.

    The big problem at Reliant ofcourse is the lack of sunlight on the south end of the stadium. It seems like such a huge undertaking to switch the trays out. Arizona had the right idea.

    Arizona's system is really awesome. Can that space be used during the game? I thought they used it as a parking lot, IIRC.

    I'm pretty sure there was also a concert on teh feild in teh week leading up to the game, then combined with the weather they had the feild was trashed by the 2nd quater.

    And 'zona's system is frelling genius.

    My current events are a little lacking, can you please give a short description of Arizona's method?

    The entire field at Arizona's stadium rolls outside when a game is not being played. Allowing for the field to be cared for, and also giving it plenty of sunlight.
