St. Louis Last Left with AstroTurf

- from the official site of the St. Louis Rams

Last season, when Rams were falling one by one to the AstroTurf monster at the Edward Jones Dome, the outcry grew louder for a new surface. At least then, the rug at the Dome wasn’t the worst in the league.

Starting this season, St. Louis won’t be able to make that claim anymore. The Indianapolis Colts, another team known for its high-octane offense and shoddy playing surface have made the move that many players, coaches and staff in the Rams organization have pleaded for: a new synthetic surface.
