Green Bay spent hundreds of thousands of $ to install a warm water system under the field and keep it covered and protected for weeks. They did a nice promo on it recently and it was really interesting the trouble and money they spent to no longer have the Frozen Tundra.
Years ago the NFL threatened to move a game from a terrible stadium where the levels were different, holes, etc. They had NFL officials there to check the field prior to letting them play a monday night game I think it was. I can't remember the team.
From what riggo and many others said the field at DC is taken care of pretty well but is used a lot by high school teams and others so it gets a lot of abuse.
Grass fields can be great if maintained properly. If not? well you saw.
I had questioned the field after the 'boys game there because it was bad then and worse this week.
The fans want a better product but obviously the Redskins ownership isn't on board with that. They have already spent millions getting Griffin and may very likely have shortened his career with this injury. When is enough enough?
