Default FAMILIAR Moving Roof Stadium Quandry??

This article which is written around the Colts stadium is worth reading in its entirety. It brings out many points that we have discussed concerning Reliant, however in some ways with somewhat unintentional distorted facts/conclusion [LINK]:


Quote:
The differences in the retractable-roof stadiums built to house NFL teams are evident not only on the blueprints but in the mind-sets of their occupants.

In Phoenix, Houston and the soon-to-be home of the Cowboys in Dallas, the stadiums are regarded as outdoor venues with the roofs to be closed only when weather conditions force it. But at newly opened Lucas Oil Stadium, where Sunday the Colts played a home game in the sunshine for the first time since moving to Indianapolis in 1984, stadium and team officials view the $720 million facility more as an indoor venue with the roof to be opened only when conditions allow it.

That's because Lucas Oil Stadium is not waterproof. Unlike the facilities in Houston and Phoenix, the field has no drainage. Also, speakers, scoreboards and other electronic equipment are exposed.
