No. It was innovative. Now that time has passed and we've learned a bit more about why we have a domed stadium (The ****sburg game)... I don't believe we will be going down the retractable route after Reliant passes away. We have always been an innovative city regarding our athletic teams. Minute Maid park having the retractable roof reallly is a well designed and well placed stadium as opposed to Reliant. Reliant was a great idea. It just didn't pan out as well as Minute Maid.
