    ****ing a, lets go boise state style, but lets make it black with yellow stripes, of course the players would burn up, but **** it, it will look cool lol

    The Steelers didn't even play on AstroTurf till 1983 so what championships are you talking about? Don't you remember that ol Tartan Turf? It looks a grass turf like surface from pictures I have seen.

    Koopa, the steelers have been dropping games every season to less talent teams long before Tomlin became coach. Come to expect that each season.

    I like the fact we have grass I feel it really does protect the Players ..the real problem is the whole State of Pennsylvania plays on Heinz field..

    SteelCityMan, Tartan Turf was hard as a rock and nothing like real grass. Astroturf was softer. The newest turfs like Field Turf are very much like real grass. I guess we won't get to see it at Heinz Field though...... at least not this year but the alternative brown patches of cow pasture will be even a greater surface.............NOT! :-(

    Didn't I say it looked like it? AstroTurf now still sucks unless you wear turf shoes. Right now I'd tell them just replace the parts that are in major need of it. Although they'll pretty much just replace the whole thing.

    You might want to recheck yourself...lol Three Rivers Stadium opened in 1970 and had Astro Turf from the start....So the Steelers played on Astro Turf from 70-00........
