Gase hopeful field conditions at Hard Rock Stadium will improve

The turf has held up relatively well in past seasons, but the field conditions came under scrutiny during Sunday night’s game against the Oakland Raiders.
Members of both teams regularly lost their footing on the chewed up surface, and the prospect of players suffering injury due to compromised playing conditions drew the ire of CBS analyst Phil Simms.
“You know, those are professional football players on the field.
Did you see the field and conditions?
It really bothered me.
There are guys — Ndamukong Suh — there are players out there that really could have been hurt because of the condition of that field.” Coach Adam Gase is notorious for his unwillingness to pardon subpar play, but even he agreed that the field conditions have been suboptimal during the last two home games.
“I go out and walk the field before the game,” Gase said.
“For me I’m always looking for what’s the right kind of cleats to wear for our guys.
… I think Tom [Garfinkle], has done a great job of researching and finding the right solution to get us kind of pointed in the right direction.” Despite playing on poor field conditions the past two weeks, Gase remains optimistic Dolphins CEO Tom Garfinkle will do everything in his power to remedy issues with the turf at Hard Rock Stadium.
For me, I’m going to let people do their job,” Gase said.
