I wouldn't be surprised, I heard once that DC was built on swampland. Obviously Fedex Field isn't considered DC but it's close enough that it could be swampland.

Re: Field Condition

The field at RFK was no picnic either. By the end of the year it was just spray painted dirt.

Re: Field Condition

had to laugh at this "comparison", probably could have mentioned that one if artificial...

Is he serious? I hope he knows that's not grass on the left.

The Ravens don't play on grass? I thought they did.

No doubt, the 82 and 91 Championship games were played in slop.

M&T stadium switched to field turf in 2003

I have walked on it pretty nice stuff. Feels like grass to your footsteps but if you rub your hand across it you definitely know it is fake.

We had their turf manager come and speak to our horticulture class years ago at the school I teach at, it must've been prior to 2003. Damn time flies fast!

Re: Field Condition

It's not even even all that expensive anymore. It used to costs millions. Now I think there are companies that do it for a mil or less.

Just agreeing with all of you...FedEx needs FieldTurf. The field at FedEx has been a mess since the stadium opened.

I do agree that the field at RFK was not great either, but it was not as bad as the field FedEx.

As ya all have said, Dan Snyder needs to shell out the bucks for a new field.

Re: Field Condition

The field is a dangerous embarrassment. It looked like the Gotham Stadium field AFTER Bane blew it up. It is totally unacceptable and if that is the best they can do, it's time to call the people at FieldTurf or maybe install that hybrid turf they have at Lambeau and Lincoln Financial.
