Why can't they get it right? I sure don't want them to change it artificial turf.

The grass at Hard Rock Stadium continues to take a beating, and not just from the guys who play on it.

On this week’s “Inside the NFL” on Showtime, analyst Phil Simms blasts the conditions of the playing surface at Hard Rock, where there have been season-long problems trying to get the grass to cooperate. That includes Sunday’s 27-24 loss to the Oakland Raiders.

“Did you watch the Sunday night game down in Miami?” Simms says to kick off his rant. “You know, those are professional football players on the field. Did you see the field and conditions? It really bothered me. There are guys — Ndamukong Suh — there are players out there that really could have been hurt because of the condition of that field.”

...

The field can take a pounding when the University of Miami plays the day before the Dolphins host a game.

Sunday night, on a freshly sodded surface, there was a downpour just before kickoff, setting off a chain of events (not to mention setting off Simms).

More issues could be on the horizon. UM plays Virginia on Nov. 18. The next day, the Dolphins host Tampa Bay in a makeup for the season-opener wiped away by Irma.

My hunch is they are going to put in the rubber turf if this keeps up.
