1) sythenic field life is 8-10 years. Cost of disposal ??? Sod/grass compost
2) synthetic fields do not take in carbon and release oxygen as does sod
3) BYU study found that synthetic field on their campus was 37% hotter than asphalt
and 86.5% hotter than grass/sod
4) how do you cool down a synthetic field when it reaches a dangerous 174 degrees ?? you irrigate it but temp. change is short lived and starts to increase after 20 mins.5) MRSA is common among football players who contact it thru turf burns. synthetic fields retain bacteria whereas sod does not.6) clean up of synthetic fields with harsh chemicals necessary...... and costly. not required on grass fields
