It's not all that bad. Besides following DCU I go see in person my local team, the Portland Timbers. The Timbers share their stadium with a baseball team. The field is not grass but field turf. So: - Do I, upon seeing the field every game curse the plastic grass? No, I don't even think about it, or I do only rarely. It's just the field. - Do I throw up when I see the seams? Does the game play differently with the seams? No it doesn't. The ball rolls a bit faster, but the ball doesn't hop up when it crosses a seam. - But there have been a bunch of injuries, right? I haven't noticed one injury that I could even remotely attribute to either the seams or the plastic stuff. - But these are just dirt bag A-league players right? What about a real team playing on that field? True, the team has a couple of former Crew players on it, but this summer the e-Quakes came to town to play an USOC game and they played their first stringers. Other than Ching missing an open net from two feet (literally) the Quakes played like they normally do and beat the Timbers 4-0. The biggest problem that I see is that the configuration of the baseball stadium makes some stands 30 yards or more away from the field of play. Other than that it's just like going to a soccer game anywhere else and that's the important thing!
