no team is ever going to switch to, or have a new stadium using Astroturf
eh, the new stuff like in Seattle is very good. It feels much like the real stuff although I hate to see all the little black bits of rubber flying around. Also, with the much lower cost of maintenance, it makes it possible to schedule other events there without damaging the surface for football.
That having been said, the game is about green grass and mud and big guys grunting and falling down...that is football.
BTW, the Santa Clara facility has both a grass and a synthetic field. Most teams also have both so players can practice on the field on which they will play their next game.
