Bengals Say Time To Pay Up For Turf

After replacing the much maligned original grass surface at Paul Brown Stadium with new state-of-the-art turf, the Cincinnati Bengals are now asking the county to put up the money to pay for it.

The Cincinnati Bengals have invoked a provision that allows them to be reimbursed the 900-thousand dollars it cost the team to put in the playing surface.

The original grass surface drew the ire of many visiting teams for its playing condition.  Some even called the playing field a sandbox.

Hamilton County, which owns the 500-million dollar stadium, is being allowed to make three installments to the team.
