I know it would be very difficult but I believe this is something the MLS needs to take a serious look at. Doing so would bring more quality international players as well as a better atmosphere to MLS stadiums. I understand that it is difficult not to mention costly to make these kinds of changes but I do think it would be in the best interest of MLS and American Football to begin focusing on this. Sure, some venues would be way off in terms of making changes and may not even make the list of planned adjustments... Seattle for instance, while I feel the pitch is a great detraction from what is an otherwise great atmosphere for a match (I live just outside the Emerald city) it would be impossible to do anything with said pitch unless the NFL's Seahawks were on board. Portland however is another story, after their stadium expansion it would be a good move (IMO to begin to look at what it would cost to install and all grass pitch and look at when the financials makes sense. I want to stress that I'm not asking that anything be done quickly and I would hope that this is at least on the MLS radar. What I do think is that the time has come to make this an effort that is (more) visible to the public, FIFA and most importantly top international players. I would think if pitch improvement were a visible priority even if the final goal is way off, it would be encouraging to international stars who might be wary of turf related injuries. Thoughts?
