The grass on the Super Bowl field this year is performing well, with logos at the 25 yard lines and the Big Shield at the 50. However, players are not yet making full-speed cuts during warmups, so it’s still too early to tell if the field will hold up during the game. Last year, the field was in poor condition and caused controversy when players slipped and slid during warmups. The league has taken steps to ensure that this does not happen again this year.
During last year’s game, the league office blamed the players for not wearing the right shoes when conditions were raised by owners during March 2023 annual meetings. However, it was ultimately not their fault as they had no control over those conditions. This incident negatively impacted the game and highlighted how important it is for the league to take responsibility for maintaining good field conditions.
In conclusion, while there are some signs of improvement on this year’s Super Bowl field, it remains to be seen how well it will hold up under pressure during high-speed play. It is crucial that the league continues to work towards improving field conditions and ensuring player safety in future events.
