The new NFL season hasn't even begun, and the Green Bay Packers from Wisconsin State have exceptional football sports players with injuries. The city of Milwaukee believes that the stadium decay is behind those injuries. Thus, they are planning to renovate the football field with artificial grass to prevent future injuries.
The first player that went down is a nose tackle B.J. Raji, who could not play for a year due to a torn biceps muscle. Fans believe that it will be hard on the team without having him there. In the second season, the player Josh Boyd will stand for Raji, although he has yet to get on the practice field because of injuries and it is a long way of contributing to the team's success. Another football player must be replaced with rookie Corey Linsley due to the injury, although his injury is not going to cause the season to end. Still, he will miss at least the first five games of the regular season. Down the road, they managed to overcome an injury that puts Aaron Rodgers on the bench last year for seven games, and they still won the final game, which should be able to match the final totals at least this season.
The Milwaukee city is finally decided to upgrade the football field to prevent further player's injury with funds that were acquired through ticket sales. Built as a Works Progress Administration project in 1941, the place is corrupted by pests, holes and dried grass. However, over the next two years, $4.6 million worth of improvements will be made. A significant change will be replacing the fescue with artificial turf. Stadium seating and improved football footwear are also on the drawing board.
Artificial turf is a smart solution for Milwaukee's overused, insecure playing fields. A grass field just cannot remain lush and resilient if it is used more than three to four days a week, or after harsh weather conditions - otherwise, the surface will become an unsafe, rock-hard, dirt field. Because synthetic turf can withstand so much wear and tear, many sports stadiums rent their synthetic turf fields to local sports organization to bring in extra funding. Also, reducing sports field maintenance budgets frees up new funds for new projects. Football games are played on natural grass as well as on artificial turf, but unlike natural grass, which is a harder and uneven surface, synthetic grass typically has a soft base. Milwaukee sports coaches should be aware of the synthetic field's texture. Thus, the technical strategy modification needs to be in place during practices.
More than 11,000 synthetic turf sports fields are currently in use throughout the United States. In 2013, between 1,200 and 1,300 fields were installed in North America colleges, schools, parks, and professional sports stadiums. Artificial grass was introduced to much fanfare in the 1960s. However; it was not until the 1980s when a vastly improved second-generation product gained popularity. Then at the beginning of the 21st century, an artificial turf system was introduced that duplicated the look and playability of natural grass and is the origin of the ever-evolving systems of today.
