      Problems logging in?   11/05/2017

      I know a few people are getting logged out too quickly. I don't have the answer to that yet.   However, one change that occurred is that there is no longer a log in name and a separate display name. The upgrade discarded the log in name and now uses the display name. So, to log in:   Username: <display name> Password: <your password>   If you need to contact me to find out what your display name is use: Contact Us  and we can get things sorted out.

The Raiders officially broke ground on the 65,000-seat domed stadium in Las Vegas that will serve as the team's new home once completed in 2020.

I actually think that all of these new Stadiums are starting to look more and more alike all the time, just like they did in the 1970s.....but a whole lot more expensive now.  It was nice to see Minnesota try something a bit different.

Which owner voted against the move? Ralph is gone. 

 

Also, they call it a dome, but then show a bunch of open air views. Is it retractable?

Do any teams with retractable roofs actually ever open them? It seems like they rarely do, regardless of the weather. Just curious if anyone else has noticed this?

Dallas opened the roof either last weekend or the weekend before, I do not recollect.

They can not get a Super Bowl with only 65k. It must be expandable.

 

It's Vegas, the town was built for Superbowls.

It's not an NFL stadium, but the skydome/rogers centre in Toronto opens and closes the roof all the time for baseball games from may until October. Apparently the close and seal the roof for the winter between October to April I believe. MLB would jot allow them to open the roof for playoff games the last couple years

I suspect this was a rule that was made to be broken in this case.  There’s only one Vegas.

I was there for a baseball game and the roof started open. I went for a stroll to check the place out (and probably grab a beer?) and when I got back it was closed. It started to drizzle and the roof is pretty darn fast.

I think it's less than 15 minute process to open or close

Hmmm...I'm guessing Spanos.

I'd bet that by season 3, half the seats will be comps by casinos.

Arizona cactus onion dome was open last game also. First time I can ever remember a Cardinals game with the roof open.

 

Colts are open most games early season.
