european teams demand that they play on real grass. the new stadiums (including yankee stadium) all have a hybrid turf system that is part synthetic, part real grass.

Yankee Stadium does not have hybrid turf. It's 100% Kentucky Blue.

yes i know - i prefer when my kid's team is playing on grass but for some reason the kids like the turf. I think especially as the newer turf fields are installed and the blades are longer and more grass like they just see the advantages because it drains better (they just see practice never gets cancelled) and isnt so bumpy like most grass fields.

It's called artificial turf because turf literally means grass. I was pointing out the irony in the fact that the common usage is the exact opposite of what the actual definition is.

You're better at pretending to sound British than you are at reading.

Yes, the consistency as someone mentioned. Kids are so spoiled I crack up.

My D gets on an immaculate real grass pitch and complains! Real grass is much better, but I understand why so many fakes are being put in.

Turf is preferred by most clubs and colleges because it is far more durable. You can practice year round and in bad weather with twice as much use without having to worried about it getting destroyed.

But if money and overuse aren't an issue, grass is preferred.
