All I said was the field is not as bad as Robbie Gould would have you believe. I think if you walked on it, like I have, you would be a little shocked.
I've never played on FT. But I will give you the fact that I assume my old high school did not install heaters.

You can't compare walking on a field to playing an NFL football game. Obviously the footing is paramount and you can't test it unless you run and cut in cleats at full speed. The fact that the Bears would have to re-sod the field multiple times like they did in 2012 is a problem.
