I read maybe a few weeks after the season ended, that the RCA Dome was rated the worst playing turf in the NFL. And, for that, it was getting improved. With, I think, a "synthetic" turf.

What does it look like? And, what other stadiums use it? I thought the Bengals used it, and if so, I think I will like it.

Why, does Detroit use it as well?

As of last year the Colts and the Rams were the only teams using Astro Turf. I'm not sure if St. Louis is doing anything about their field.

I got to play a high school football game at the RCA dome. I had carpet burns all over my body after playing. I dont know how those guys play 10 or so games on that stuff, its brutal.

Yeah, Detroit uses the same surface the Colts are going to be playing on from now on. If last Thanksgiving is any indication, there won't be any problems with the new turf.

What's kinda bothersome... is that Warren Central's football team (highschool) got feild turf before the colts. -_-

North central (my school) will be getting it within the next two years. It is VERY nice to play on, you can wear cleats or regular shoes, if anything, you run faster; because you can wear the cleats, and they dig in, without having all the grass and dirt lumps in the way.
