After reading that, I am very positve that we will not go with field turf next season.

    Pitt doesn't pay a dime to play on that field. They bought there rights by pitching in on the cost of Heinz.

    guys from where you are from must not be able to read..... if you would read right, i was saying they are bitches for wanting it as an advantage, i don't care if they play in mud, but the fact that they want it for an advantage is pussy ****, just shows we ain't good enough to beat teams straight up

    and if pitt don't pay, then kick that faggot *** school out, they don't win ****

    So basically we want the advantage of playing in swamp, limiting our own offense by not being able to use our speed, being the laughing stock of the league with the state of our field, wasting money several times a year to re-sod the damn thing, and then players still get hurt just like on any other surface???

    Look for the Steelers to keep the grass.

    Can we switch to Field Turf, but switch back to grass just for the Jacksonville game just to **** Fred Taylor off?

    see, now you're talking...we can just pave right over top of that stuff in the end zones so it stays nice and pretty.

    i thought the city of Pittsburgh owned the stadium so they can lease it out to whoever they want regardless of what the Steelers say?
    wouldnt that also apply to the discussion about fieldturf and grass? the city of Pittsburgh, not the Rooneys, would have to make that decision , right?

    that being said, im torn between fieldturf and grass.
    i like the idea of the homefield advantage. the Steelers get to use the grass so they have an edge while playing on it. if we played NE on our field, Moss and Welker would have been completely neutralized. but unfortunately it also works to neutralize our own players.
    but i have been up to Duquesne and been on their fieldturf and it is awesome. FWP would lose no speed on it. i have made cuts on it and i didnt feel any more strain than i feel on grass, possibly less since there is no chance of it slipping out from under your feet.

    i think the decision should be made based on our draft this year. if we draft more speed, we should switch. if we draft "down in the trenches" linemen and a powerback, we should stay with the grass. the grass should cater to our team.

    The Rooney's pay to have the field redone 2-3 times per year and plus all the work that goes into it week in and week out from September to December is just such a waste of resources IMO...
