The Seahawks' offense and defense may have proved toxic in the team's 42-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, but its practice site in Renton is, at least, no longer considered so.
The 19-acre site is home to four practice fields--three grass and one turf, the latter of which is housed in a massive airplane hangar style building.
It was formerly home to a wood creosoting plant and the chemicals left behind (especially in the southern end) had put the site on the state's list of of contaminated parcels for years.
Now, since the de-listing took place before Sunday's game, that makes it the first loss that Hawks can't chalk up to practicing on a lethal lawn. Those five previous losses: totally the field's fault.
