Being Artificial is the Fundamental Problem with Synthetic Turf

artificial turf, synthetic turfI watched the Super bowl, and noticed the players were complaining about the artificial turf. They were losing their cleats. Artificial turf is nothing more than plastic carpet. No matter what you might hear from the manufacturers, it can never replace natural grass. It can be slippery. It has to be replaced every few years, just like regular carpet. It can harbor bacteria and mold. It can gets very hot in the sun. There have been reports of outgassing causing health issues. Did that one item register with you? It has to be replaced every few years, just like carpet! I am not convinced it is good for outdoor surfaces.
