NFL Fields - 2019 Mexico Game, Rams Week 14 (12/9/19)

Recommended Posts

The turf was still down in 1996 as well saw a you tube video showing game 1 at the Meadolands vs the Bills.

1997 was the year they put new turf down which included a new Meadowlands logo on the 50 yard line. 

Time stamp approx 4:14 for the updated logo.

I was looking at a Jets game in 1996 though, and it looked like the number font had slightly changed. I'd have to take a closer look.

I think they changed the field in 1996 but kept the old red logo. 

They changed it again in 1998.

Looks like the old field, but the numbers are painted differently, and new endzone turf,

I absolutely hated those end zones in '96 and was happy they turned out to be one-and-done.

The new ones in '97 were an improvelent.

Wow, I can't remember that logo at all.

They kept those same end zones for 1998 & 1999 though while changing the logo at the 50-yard line. .

I'll get back to fixing the Giants and Jets fields not too far off from now.

 

Here's an interesting one. Dolphins at Steelers week 12 2007, which was that monsoon 3-0 game on Monday night.

 

First half: Most of the paint had washed off. The Steelers had placed fresh sod ON TOP of the existing field sod the day of the game (so an entire field on top of another entire field; not the best idea), and due to the rain, most of the paint washed out.

Second half: Some lines were pained back onto the field at halftime. The hash marks on the sideline were pained orange.

Great work as always!

I was able to get the image to work as a gif:

PIT_2007%5E3.gif

 

Which opens the possibility of showing the accumulation of now on fields over the course of a game, or the yard markers being cleared of snow. I know @SFCOM1 did the Fog Bowl field, so this could be a good way of showing the fog roll in. I'm going to try that out and update this post if I can get it to look good.

2019 Chiefs, week 3

A beautiful field.

 

And here's a neat article about the field:

https://www.chiefs.com/news/legendary-groundskeeper-george-toma-returns-to-arrowhead-to-paint-the-end-zones-

 

It would be neat to see if the Chiefs updated their field throughout the year based on different eras. This past weekend would cover the 60's. This field was in use from '72-'79, and would represent the 70's:

KC_1978-1979%5E1.png

 

This field was used from '80-'83, and is more of an early '80s era

KC_1980-1983%5E1.png

 

Then the '84-'93 field:

KC_1993%5Ewc.png

 

And then the design from the mid '90's to late 200's really had little variance:

KC_2008%5E1.png

 

And finally the modern field:

KC_2016-2018%5E1.png

 

In reality, it's probably not realistic to do this many fields, but with the Chiefs schedule, they could probably rotate. The chiefs are home for weeks 5 and 6, and could keep the field from week 3, with their next home game being a Sunday night game. Then they come back home weeks 8 and 9, with week 8 being a Sunday night game as well, and here they could switch to the 70's style field. There remaining home games are weeks 13, 15, and 17, which they could go to the late 80's, early 90's field. Could be a good year for fields in Kansas 

The 1994 field is when the converted to grass the same field design at the previous but also with the 75th season logo on the 30 yard lines each side's

Field for tonight's game:

pi-nfl-mexico-city-azteca-stadium-111619

 

A very unique field design for the Chargers in their history. Both the retro styled logo, and the classic bolt logo. What seems to be a simplistic sans-serif font used in the endzones. Not sure if this font resembles anything the Chargers have used in the past.

 

The International fields seem to all use the same template when it comes to numbers. Gaps in all the 0s and 4s (Baltimore uses the same number pattern). 

 

Interesting that the soccer markings midfield are not centered at midfield like the NFL logo.

 

Beautiful looking field overall. I just moved, so probably won't get this in a digital format for a week or so, but the good thing is with current fields, there's always plenty of pictures and video to see the fields.

Wow that is an incredible picture. If it was not 2 degrees off center, it would make an awesome schematic for us to expand and overlay on ours; to confirm it's accuracy... exactly!
