The roof will be closed. No way they want that blimp to get a look at the horrible field conditions.

Having seats on the sunny side of the stadium, all I care about is the temperature. Even when its in the 70's, it's still pretty darn hot on our side of the field. Its all about air flow or should I say the lack of air flow.

Best plan, always bring a pair of short, a light shirt, and a hat to every game.

The 3:30 start should fix a lot of that problem. Given the time of year and all, the sunny side should be fully shaded by game time.

But, I don't think it will be an issue. Roof Closed is my bet.

Default Re: What if league dictates open roof

I don't know why there is even a retractable roof on Reliant. Bob is too ***** to ever open it. Might as well be a dome. Football is supposed to be played outside. I get the heat thing and trying to make fans comfortable but it is taken to an extreme in Houston. Just close it and seal it and call it a dome.

Default Re: What if league dictates open roof

I don't even know what to say. I'll try to be BRIEF this time.

If you don't want the roof closed for this playoff game, then something is wrong with your noggin. Noise escapes or it bounces back, it's pretty simple.

NOISE. NOISE. NOISE.

This is not the Geneva Convention, this is NFL football and you use everything you can to your advantage. What's next? "We should only use the same plays and the same NAMES for those plays as our opponent, to ensure a fair game for both defenses."

Jiminy Freaking Christmas. (sigh)........

Who let the girl from True Grit get on here?

Default Re: What if league dictates open roof

I guess that makes you a true domer GP. If the Texans can't beat the Bengals because the roof is open then they have a hell of alot more problems than crowd noise. And this comment comes from someone that was at the Atlanta game. Grow some balls and play like you want it or stay home with the closed roof and roast some marshmellows. Do you think the teams that will eventually make the superbowl care if a roof is opened or closed? It really makes the Texans sound like a bunch of wimps.

If that were truly the case, then why do teams play their starters after they've locked up the division title or a playoff spot? They do so to gain whatever advantage playing at home gives them. Whether they get to play in their noisy dome or make warm weather teams come and play in the snow or make teams that aren't used to it play in their windy stadium (see New York or Candlestick) - they want that advantage. So yeah, they all care.

Default Re: What if league dictates open roof

I can't believe some of the posts in this thread. If you wan't to be outside on game day, take a freaking walk in the park and give your tickets to somebody who will come to the game and make some noise.

Kubiak on this matter yesterday:

(on what the crowd noise can do to an opposing team) “It’s huge. They’ve got to operate offensively with our crowd type of thing. It’s a big boost for us as a football team. It’s just something we need to use to our advantage. Obviously, this place will be rocking. We know that. It’s been excellent all year long and I’m sure it’ll be even better this weekend.”

Anything that tends to lessen the effect is counterproductive. Come early ,get in your seats and be loud.

There is zero chance the roof will be open, or that the NFL will dictate our roof be open.

Also the 50/80 rule isnt really a rule at all. Just a guideline for them making a decision. They know that the crowd noise will be deafening with the roof closed and will do everything in their power to keep the roof closed.

Lots of woulda, coulda, shouldas with Reliant.

The retractable roof is hardly ever used and the turf design is inherently flawed.

Pretty disappointing that after only 10 seasons these things are becoming such mounting issues.

The Texans need to focus on the game.

WE'LL focus on the noise, roof open or not. 75,000 pissed off pterodactyl's screeches should be deafening either way.

It's for this reason why I'd like to see the roof open. Don't get me wrong... I prefer it when its closed. I think we're a "dome" sort of town... although... We paid all those millions to make it retractable. We got some PERFECT football weather coming up and we have an opportunity on the national stage. Open it up.

But they won't.... we know the NFL's position on this given its history... fun fact... 3 Super Bowls have been layer with a retractable roof and all were closed.

To be clear, HLSR paid for the retractable roof, not the Texans. Original designs of the stadium were to be open air.

Default Re: What if league dictates open roof

Wow!! Just WOW!! INSANE that any TRUE fan, OF ANY TEAM, would want to play nice and take away any advantage their team EARNED by playing at home!!! Speechless!!

As for the roof! I've been preaching my sermon for 10yrs now. Reliant is NOT an open venue stadium!! It is simply a dome stadium with a hole in the roof!! It serves NO purpose whatsoever!!!! JMO!! When it rains and the roof is closed, it LEAKS like crazy. When it's hot and the sun shines in, it makes fans run to the concourse or the club sections because the seats are to hot to touch!! DECREASE in crowd noise when that happens!!! BUT, to some posters in this thread that's ok!
