Besides, the roof designs are hideously ugly, looks so much better without it. No need for a roof in New York, this past year excluded, it really doesn't rain often enough in the summer to warrant a roof. 3 or 4 rescheduled games isn't the end of the world.
It wasn't just the roof that was expensive. I believe it and the Mets proposal had retractable fields as well. There are pics over at ballpark fever of the models having retractable fields.

Home teams should be made to forfeit games if they get rained out ... especially if they can afford to build a retractable roof.

this project was an escroquery.

A shame for our country to have cities acting like this.

They only deserve to be releguated at the end of this season with such a mediocrity.

Turkey bid could had been chosen !

never built you can be sure! Euro 2016 was the window to receive money from french state. now whithout this they cannot forecast a renovation they don't need.

Nancy is the former club of michel platini and it was his wish to make Nancy a city host for 2016...

Everyone was surprised to see Lens & nancy before toulouse and st etienne. Some politicians of both regions call it a shame or a scandal to avoid a major city like toulouse in favour of Lens.

and the team is for the moment in the way for Ligue 2

Rumors says that the president of AS Nancy will resign soon because to disapointed and whithout forces to continue.

100% this project is dead because this renovation was first for euro 2016.
Their actual stadium is enough for them

Like "Frankfurt am Main" (real german name of Frankfurt for German people because there is another city named Frankfurt in Germany. This second city is "Frankfurt am Oder", the Oder is a river, which is the frontier between Germany and Poland.

Little lesson of German:
am = an + dem ; "am" is the contraction of "an" and "dem", the "der" Datif.
Yes der is datif, that's why the second city is called "Frankfurt an der Oder" and not "Frankfurt am Oder"
Because it's der Main and die Oder
