Fake Grass Versus Real Grass

24th July, 2020

Yesterday, driving through Concord to Birchgrove doing quotes & jobs I saw the West Tigers (including GRUB) going through their paces on a beautiful field along Crane Street, Concord.










The playing surface looked immaculate until I noticed it was Fake/Faux/Imitation/NotTheRealStuff/MostProbablyImportedFrom Wuhan/Carcinogenic/NoWeedsAtAll, ie Artificial Grass.

Fair to say I don’t like Fake Grass.

A big downside of Fake Grass is it creates an ambient temperature 10 degrees hotter in the middle of summer. It is SCORCHING HOT, you cannot even walk barefoot on it.
