Fooch's update: It's getting worse
Panthers having problems with footing on Levi's Stadium field and four have switched cleats, per CBS. Manning slipped, too— Cam Inman (@CamInman) February 8, 2016
Broncos also complaining about sod, CBS @tracywolfson reports. Welcome to the #49ers world— Cam Inman (@CamInman) February 8, 2016
Levi's Stadium had its share of issues with turf in year one, and through the preseason this past year. They were generally fine once the regular season hit, but there are a few problems cropping up in Super Bowl 50 pre-game. A couple media tweeted about it, so I grabbed a quick screen-shot that you can see above.
They're having some turf trouble at Levi's Stadium. Groundskeepers are walking around, picking up and/or flattening chunks of grass.— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoNYDN) February 7, 2016
As I just said on live chat, it's slippery on Levi's Stadium turf. At least 2 #Broncos receivers have wiped out making the simplest of cuts.— John Kryk (@JohnKryk) February 7, 2016
