Yes, for us older folk there is the nostalgia factor in our desire to preserve the grass field. However, safety of the players should be the overriding basis for choosing between turf an grass. On this point I must ask is the "jury still out?" (per link below). Some argue there are more ankle related injuries on grass while others say the there are more ACL injuries on turf. Most scary of course is the opinion that turf carries cancer risks.
My cynicism leads me to believe the ultimate decision on this will be based less on safety pros and cons and mostly on cost factors ie cheapest to maintain.
