Default Note to Mr. Rooney and/or whoever runs Heinz field...

-Stop holding WPIAL championships here.
-Make the Pitt Panthers build a new stadium for themselves as soon as possible.
-Get new turf as soon as possible.

This stadium holds 64 thousand people. Stop renting out the stadium to HS teams that only gather at least a thousand people in attendance. Maybe then the field wouldn't look like crap when the Steelers play.

It also doesn't help that the turf stinks. I beg of you. Get new turf next year. Please?

Thanks.

Heinz Field is part of the football culture in Western Pa. I don't want them to stop playing the WPIAL games there. I want them to get better turf so they can play those games there.

The taxpayers paid for the stadium - Pitt playing there is what helped roll the stadium deal through the PA Legislature

WPIAL games are part of western PA and if the taxpayers paid for the stadium their kids are damn well entitled to use it one Friday a year.

Not meaning to bark at you (I enjoy your posts ) but the field situation has pissed me off for years and it just keeps getting worse

Default Will The NFL Contact The Rooneys?

After watching the game tonight...

I gotta wonder if the Rooney's will be contacted by the league about the grass.

I would hope so. Not only is it embarrassing, teams might refuse to play on such a crap field.
