The vertical seat design is its best feature IMO. The upper level seats I sat in at Reliant had a better view than my mezzanine season tickets I had at the dome.
Personally, given the advances in turf, I think Reliant should scrap the grass, put in turf and stick with the roof policy based purely on fan comfort.
