After seeing first hand and reading posts on here about the turf being torn up upon rushing the field, I did a little research and wondered what the possibility of replacing the grass at RayJay with FieldTurf.

I figure with FieldTurf that endzones and midfield could be painted for a Bulls game one night, cleaned off and repainted for the Bucs game the following day.  From what I see,  13 of 31 NFL stadiums use FieldTurf or another comparable product.  Obviously, most of these are the domed stadiums of the NFL, but open-air venues also use artificial surfaces. 

New York's Giants Stadium (FieldTurf)

Buffalo's Ralph Wilson Stadium (AstroTurf, the grassy kind)

Atlanta's Georgia Dome (FieldTurf)

Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium (Sportexe Momentum Turf)

New Orleans' Louisiana Superdome (Sportexe Momentum Turf) - also home to Tulane football

New England's Gillette Stadium (FieldTurf)

Seattle's Qwest Field (FieldTurf)

St Louis' Edward Jones Dome (FieldTurf)

Dallas' Texas Stadium (RealGrass)

Cincinnati's Paul Brown Stadium (FieldTurf)

Detroit's Ford Field (FieldTurf) - Dome

Minnesota's HHH Metrodome (FieldTurf)

Indianapolis' RCA Dome (FieldTurf)

Now all of this is speculation, but would you have any thoughts on changing to FieldTurf to possibly get the field painted OUR way more often.  Obviously feasibility would have to be questioned, but this is just hypothetical.

if you look all the open air stadiums that have it are up north.

No reason for a southern team or stadium to use field turf

They would never go to artificial turf.  They have the best grass in th NFL, maybe all of sports, outside of Ricky Williams :D

I think New England, Baltimore, and Cincinnati all have some sort of grass field.

Field turf is nice; I played on it every year in HS. Most stadiums that have it have it for drainage issues and such(like the Seahawks). I love field turf but playing on grass is better and I deffinatly don't see them putting it down at RayJay
