Yup...and even the frozen tundra has heating coils to avoid the disgrace of a place called Soldier Field from those rock-hard sidelines. Even the national announcers cited it twice during the game...guess the Bears need every trick in the book to pull out wins... :lol:


Last time I checked, both teams have to play on the same surface. Don't blame the Bears for the surface. Blame the Chicago Park District who owns Soldier field. The District is ran by all those crooked Chicago politicians who have pretty much decimated most of Illinois' finances.

You may consider checking again....design decisions in Chicago were made by consensus and through collaboration.

In contrast - the Packers installed a heated coil system that has repeatedly worked well in severe cold below their turf decades ago, to avoid the same embarrassing debacle of a playing surface found at Soldier Field.

There is a genuine concern about how bad they were this past week, and they do want a repeat of any injuries amplified by rock-hard sidelines of turf that is cited as marginal.

I will preface my comments by stating that I am not defending the turf at Soldier Field. It is a disgrace and has been for years.


Like Lambeau Field, Soldier Field does have heating coils. The difference is that Lambeau's coils extend past the sidelines under the player bench area. Soldier Field's coils end at the outer edge of the sidelines.

Despite what the "knowledgeable" National announcers claimed, the field conditions had nothing to do with the injuries that were sustained by Seattle players.

John Carlson made an ill-advised leap when he was about to be tackled, which caused him to get upended and land on his head. The turf where he landed is heated by coils. His awkward landing caused the injury, not the field.

Marcus Trufant took a knee to the head while making a tackle in the middle of the field. His injury had nothing to do with the turf.

The criticism of Soldier Field's turf by players generally refers to the poor footing. This is not caused by a frozen field. The problem is that chunks of the turf tear up when players are trying to stop or make a cut, which causes them to slip. This problem is worse when the field is wet, as it was during the Seattle game.

It is ridiculous that in the seven years since Soldier Fied was renovated, they have not been able to resolve this issue. But as they like to say, both teams have to play on it.

Someone wrote in urine "Packers suck!" in the snow in Aaron Rodgers' front yard, so he called GB police. They took a sample and said they would be back...
They returned a day later and said, "We have good and bad news. The good news is it's Brian Urlacher's urine. The bad news is that it's your GF's handwriting."

GO BEARS! :)

It has been said that the British army wore red coats so that, if they were shot, their opponent would not be able to tell that they were bleeding. I guess that explains why the Packers wear yellow pants.
