Not like they'll be playing on it anytime soon, and it's artificial so it's not like you want to get it in and seeded/rooted at a specific time.

A green field will make the stadium feel complete. I don't care if they've finished bricking the concourse, but the field is a huge piece to me.

What C said, will give the stadium a more finished look. Once the turf is there, I'm sure they will practice on it some.

The stadium isn't even complete in other areas. Grass is just another part. Just wondered. Isn't a huge deal to me.

NN, maybe they can cut the grass so that it has a herringbone pattern in it. That would be grand.

Houndstooth > herringbone, but that might be tricky

That's why I didn't go with it.

I expect you to atleast go with a flemish bond for your house. I swear to God if you go with a standard running bond you are dead to me.

I rode through at 10:30 just in case the camera has been hacked. Turf = No, girls in shorts = Yes!. I will make another run through soon to confirm my findings.

Would be an awesome time to increase camera speed to something faster than once every 20 something minutes.

RE: Turf Day!
If the positioning of that strip is correct its a 50 yard line piece. Looks like logos will be done on the field and not at the factory.

I believe the example on Hellas website shows turf comes with yard lines, but nothing else. Then logos are applied along with numbers on site.

From the images it looks like once they have the green field down they then cut out the logos and numbers, then lay matching colored segments in the cutouts.
