Artificial Turf dangerous?...

Recommended Posts

While I am no fan of artificial turf I don't think that article is very informative. It only applies to some synthetic turf not all and it does not apply to FieldTurf. It appears to be a bigger problem with the carpet type of artificial turf than the sand/silicate filled FieldTurf.

Reinforced grass (http://www.dessosports.com/en/home.html) allows 3 times the use of regular grass. I'm surprised more teams don't try it.

If you want to read up on the subject there is a site that is not industry sponsored (grass or syth) www.synturf.org and their page on maintenance is what I found most interesting.

And "Field Turf" has this release to counter the possible adverse publicity:

Submitter = fail.
