    Moving forward, I think that there will be a rush to get Reliant rocking by October.

    Does anyone here have any knowledge or expertise in the engineering of our stadium, especially the roof.

    It looks as though it is a stretched out type of plastic or a real strong fiber material. How tough will it be to stretch that out and deal with the water damage?

    Your thoughts, links???

    I think whoever built Minute Maid should have built Reliant. Although MM did have that green algae thing growing on its roof....

    Excellent find. That is a great article.

    Now the question is: Do they have that tefflon in supply?

    And: How long to get it installed?

    Excellent post though brando.

    Seems like Mr. McNair should get a refund.

    Oops.

    Losing 5 out of 9 panels might qualify the design idea as a costly mistake.

    True...

    But, I just want it fixed so we can have our home opener. Maybe we bought a ten year warranty.

    I wonder how that works out. When you go through the check out line at Roofs-R-Us, does a sales clerk ask you if you want the $1 million extended warranty on it?

    Cheap-ass Bob prolly stared at the brochure for a minute, stared at the sales clerk, stared back at the warranty brochure for a second, paused, took a big sigh, and said "Nah. Now do I just pull around and you guys have someone to help me load this thing up?"

    Just venting here, folks. But I bet there is a HUGE peeing match between Bob and the company that built/engineered the roof. Who pays for it?

    I would imagine that HCSCC would have insurance on Reliant.
