Default Roof open tomorrow?

Low of 58, High of 74 ... guessing it'll be a open container tomorrow.

No way, a 10% chance of rain will keep it closed.

Default Re: Roof open tomorrow?

Didn't realize that the Texans actually listened to the fans and changed the roof open policy

http://prod.www.texans.clubs.nfl.com...of-policy.html

"Houston Texans Roof Policy (50/80 rule):

We will consider opening the roof at Reliant Stadium when the game time temperature is projected to be between 50 and 80 degrees. Our goal for implementing the “50-80 Rule” is to provide the most comfortable environment possible to enjoy Houston Texans games. Please note that the threat of rain will influence this decision, and when there is a good chance of rain during a game, the roof will be closed. Also, our parameters for late afternoon and evening games may shift slightly because of the absence of direct sunlight. However, we plan to use the general parameters established with your input to make the roof position decision for each game.

Our research clearly demonstrated that we cannot please everyone, every time with our roof position decision. However, we are hopeful that this note helps to point out that our approach is thoughtful, deliberate and focused on creating the best environment possible for the majority of our fans to enjoy games at Reliant Stadium."

You are correct. I just remember we thought we'd have an advantage because they wore black and it was so sunny and hot. The only ones who lost were the fans unfortunately.

Actually, the heat was to be advantageous to our team, but the architects evidently screwed up because the home bench side incinerated way before the visitor's............and we almost lost Granma!

Really doesn't matter. We had so many scorchers back in the "old" days it was inevitable, esp since they started getting massive complaints from CLUB PSL owners with threats to give up their seats if they didn't do something. Of course, when ya have 150 people visiting the first aide station in ONE quarter, it was time to get out of your AC box and realize fans were getting sick.

I think the Raider game was just as HOT as the Steeler game, but, it was the Steeler game that got the job done.

I just searched the Texans' site but couldn't find the quote but earlier today I was watching the TV & Media section and there was a conversation between Nick & Drew where that question came up. Their response was something along the lines of "look for it very seldom because Kubiak likes it closed" as it provides a "perfect atmosphere" and "crowd noise" was also a factor.

Someone posted the reason was 10% chance of rain. Nick Scurfield said on one of his bits that if was up to Gary, it'd be closed every game. Looks like Gary might have just a little stroke.

Because Kubiak said close it. 610 had funny skit this afternoon with one guy being Mcnair and other Gary.

Bob McNair: Beautiful day Gary, let's open stadium.

Kubiak: No.

Bob: Gary come on national tv looking at our beautiful stadium..

Gary: No.

McNair: You know 72,000 fans will make lots of noise with roof open.

Gary: No.

Game day announcer: Houston Texans have decided for the roof to remain closed.

RUMOR only!!

I read on some website, don't remember which, it's the Internet ya know, that they had some kind of mechanical problem that would not allow the roof to open entirely. Who knows, and who cares, really!!! Kubiak should have the final say IMHO!
