No More Natural Grass

The last stadium in the CFL to have natural grass is moving to field turf for 2010. The city of Edmonton announced yesterday that the grass at Commonwealth Stadium will be replaced with field turf some time in May.

The move makes sense, but there is something iconic about seeing those old-time photos with players all muddy and grass-stained, and now that look will be lost on the next generation of fans. Being dirty and grimy just seems natural to football. As with everything, evolution occurs. In this fast-paced world, change happens almost instantly. Sometimes it's nice to see traditions kept. Too bad grass fields in the CFL have now gone the way of the triple-option.
