Default The Metrodome...

...looks like a damn pool table with that carpet. It's a good thing the Vikings wised-up and are planning to build a new stadium, because that turf is the ugliest stuff I've ever seen. It might even be worse than the carpet at Veteran's Stadium, which has been cricitized and complained about for years, especially since Wendell Davis, a wide-receiver for the Bears tore up both of his knees. This injury ended his career, sadly.

Veteran's Stadium has that fake grass looking field now. I'm not sure what it's called but I know the Devil Rays have it as well.

I guess it's turf but just longer, which makes sense. Less chance of getting your foot caught.

I know Husky Stadium has it too.

The Vikings' only plan to build a new stadium calls for the taxpayers to foot the bill, which ain't going to happen, believe me. Red McCombs doesn't have a single dollar of his own money in the team, and he keeps crying because there might not be enough profit coming in to pay his loans after all the other expenses and still leave a profit for him. His only hope is that the taxpayers of Minnesota build one for the Gophers and the Vikes get to ride along.
