Yves De Cocker apparently spoke to soon.
The Desso GrassMaster executive told ESPN 980 in D.C. that the company is talking to the Redskins about installing the hybrid turf system at FedEx Field.
“Let me say that we’re on speaking terms,” DeCocker said. “Yes, there is some action going over the ocean, let’s say, between the Redskins and our company. I think both sides are looking at what would the system bring them.”
The action apparently consisted of De Cocker’s company putting a document in an envelope, and then putting the envelope in the mail.
“That story is false,” Redskins spokesman Tony Wyllie told PFT. “They sent us a brochure. That is it.”
So, in other words, the Redskins are sticking with dirt. Painted green.
