And again I ask...what does it matter? Why is having a pretty field so god damn important? If the Steelers are winning (which they are) and people aren't getting hurt (which they aren't) then what is the problem?
Couldn't agree with you more.  This is my least favorite annual topic of discussion.  I'll care about the field surface when we start losing on it.


Maybe Pitt fans have a point, though.
Therein lies the rub.

I don't think you'll ever be able to attribute winning or losing, exclusively or even mostly, to the condition of the field, so I don't think that's really a good factor to consider.
 
I think I may have spoken too soon.

Stay tuned.

I think the new turf was a strategic move to distract Ricky Williams.  It's funny that two of the major stories about tonight's game are about Ricky's comeback and the new grass at Heinz.
Yeah, that's the ticket:  Ricky snuck out last night and smoked the midfield.

I am for grass fields, but I think it is time for the Steelers to install the field turf. That field last night was just a complete embarrassment. The Pittsburgh Steelers are a professional football team right? It is time Heinz Field reflects that. The stadium is GREAT, the field absolutely is the worst field to play on in the NFL, bar none. It almost cost us the game last night, sure you can say it didn't. But it damn sure was close to being a loss. It's time.

It's a hot night. The mind races. You think about your knife; the only friend who hasn't betrayed you, the only friend who won't be dead by sun up. Sleep tight, mates, in your quilted Chambray nightshirts.

My big question is "did they not know it was going to rain"?

Maybe the field needed to be sodded, but I think a chimp would know better than to do it right before a rain storm.

Looks like you've been missing a lot of work lately.
I wouldn't say I've been *missing* it, Bob.

Maybe they need better meteorologists? Either way, Heinz Field needs to be field turf.

After that fiasco, I can't see how they could not replace the field during the off season.

We'll see some sort of field turf in '08

That was a fucking joke. I thought Hampton was going to need snowshoes just to get to the sideline. Was that game even moderately enjoyable to watch?

Maybe Sunday night they can throw on the broom ball shoes and play on the Pens' ice surface.

I was wondering if they were even going to play the game when I saw the field conditions. Brutal.
