Once again, The Rooney's know what football was made to be played on. And it's grass.

I'd like it to be grass, but if we cant find a way to take care of the grass we have than we need to look at other options

The grass doesn't bother me as much as not having the symbol in the middle of the feild and having those stupid lines in the endzone like its the 1940's. I don't know if anyone remembers this or not but a few years back there were wildfires burning in San Diego, and a lot of people had to live in the chargers stadium, so Arizona let San Diego play a home game in their stadium, and even had chargers symbols painted in the endzones!! That was with only a few days preperation. Heinz feild is a pro stadium where in which two teams share it perminantly. They should find some way to be able to share it with Pitt and each have their symbols on the feild.

the symbol in the middle yes, but I kinda like the hashes in the end zones as long as its grass..if field turf HAAAD to be put in then something in the endzone would be needed

Look, I know some of you guys are dead-set against anything except grass fields, but unless the Rooneys find a way to maintain the crap they have now or find a natural surface that can withstand the punishment it takes, then they need to go to an artificial grass like FieldTurf or the stuff they use in Baltimore. And it isn't just the Steelers and Panthers playing there that chews up the grass, but also the high school championship games and several concerts/events during the summer that also takes it's toll on the field. It is downright embarrassing to watch Steelers home games being played on a surface that looks worse than many high school grass fields. What's it going to take for them to change it, a season-ending knee injury to Ben or Hines or Troy or Willie? I'm a traditionalist like you guys are, but sometimes you just have to accept the fact that you can't grow good grass everywhere.
