    Unless their pitch has often been judged to be a bit ropey and only just playable and this is the final straw?

    Only thing I can think of that you could do to mitigate the freezing of the pitch is to make sure you weren't over watering and so trying to achieve a dry environment so you got some frost, but no frozen over surface. Then again if freezing mist descends..not sure what you'd be able to do.

    Incredible :lol: There has to be more to this story if they're coming out with a statement like that. Maybe he was a **** employee and they were looking for an excuse to fire him?
