New lawsuit centers on Super Bowl playing field

MetLifeField AP

In eight days, the Seahawks and Broncos will be playing on a football field that has spawned a different kind of game in a court of law.

Per the Associated Press, Taylor Turf claims it’s still owed more than $292,000 for installing the current playing surface at MetLife Stadium.  The job was completed in 11 days, at an alleged agreed price of $417,000.

Taylor Turf contends that it received $125,000 early in the process, but that it has been stiffed for the balance.

It seems like a fairly basic dispute, and it should be easy to resolve — if indeed the agreed price was $412,000 and only $125,000 has been paid.

Maybe the explanation is that the check is in the mail.  And that the mail truck is on the George Washington Bridge.

    Seeing as we now know that the NFL is a “Non Profit” organization,I’m sure Roger will gladly “Donate” the remainder of the balance due so the Show can go on right?

    Maybe they can repo the grass during halftime.

    Maybe MetLife is investigating a field that has blown out almost as many ACLs as Fed Ex field in December by the time pre season and OTAs are over.

    292K owed and an unpaid balance?

    I have an idea. Metlife through the NFL in lieu of payment should award Taylor Turf advertising money during the Super Bowl…That should allow for a 3 second commercial…

    More likely it’s stuck in an IRS audit as judgement and punishment based on it’s politcal party

    I think Colorado and Washington state should bring their own “grass”. This game would set a record for Doritos sales.
