    The Reliant Stadium turf was rated in the top five by NFL players.


    The top four fields in the survey of players -- Tampa Bay's Raymond James Stadium, Arizona's Sun Devil Stadium, Carolina's Bank of America Stadium and Houston's Reliant Stadium -- all have natural grass. The fifth-best, Seattle's Qwest Field, has FieldTurf, the same playing surface the Colts installed in their indoor practice facility.

    If the players like it, why do so many people on this board want to rip it out?

    i was surprised by this, too. it gets railed on by the press all the time...and the Colts! :) but apparently, other teams like it fine.

    That is shocking. I know a few Texan employees who talk about how bad the field is. Especially the Sunday night game against the Packers the field was in really bad condition with players slipping and falling throughout the game.

    Don't smoke the St. Augustine. Go for either bermuda or buffalo grass. :D

    Freakin' COLTS... Choketon Manning will cite the Texan games as the ones that cursed them from going to the SUPER BOWL now? :mad:
