    Re: Jack Trice Stadium named top field by Sports Turf Managers Association

    [QUOTE=stevefrench;3186248]it's because Soldier field is maintained by the chicago park district. just imagine 15 city workers standing around for 4 hours debating over how to change out a piece of sod or two before taking all of their union negotiated breaks and accomplishing virtually nothing.[/QUOTE.



    Bah, it's because the Bears rely on teams not being able to play on that crap.

    Yes, the post is real (click on the blue arrow button next to his name), and it's not pathetic, it's epic. He trolled A LOT of people in that thread.

    I've always had to convince new people behind me that the field is real and not artificial. This is awesome!

    I think the Soldier Field turf is a joke and inexcusable, but that field does have more games that tear it up, high school, college and pro.

    I've always wondered if we would win some awards. Our field is natural grass and it endures very well. Awesome!!!!!

    Same here. Some refuse to believe me, too. I do wish we would include the Big 12 logo on the turf. I know paint kills grass, but I think it's an important part of national branding.

    That's a fair argument for Week 14, but not Week 1. That field already looks awful at the beginning of the season.

    That Jack Trice Stadium is one fine piece of grass. I know from experience, if you know what I mean.

    Soldier field is a joke because the Bears refuse to put any money on the table to make it better. There is a bit of a battle between the Mccaskeys and Chicago and who should pay for upgrades.
