Look, Phantom Dreamer. At least they tried. You rather have cookie cutters where you just have soul-less circles and other shapes without any personality? They should of thought ahead with the roof, but hindsight is a b*tch, isn't it. You gotta commend them for putting at least some effort for trying new things and helping the fan experience and improving the stadium over the years.

Hindsight is really good though. I also omitted the Bourbon Street imitation with the office complex in the outfield enclosing the stadium earlier.

Being original anymore isn't that hard if you ask me. The most original features are unused concepts:

Tampa's Downtown St. Pete stadium was going to be white on the outside with a lot of glass:


The other rays idea for an ETFE retractable roof was original:


The A's Cisco Park was going to have seats on the building across the street like the cubs used to have and seats that went over the street so cars could still drive over it:




The A's other park idea was going to have Center Field boxes that hung over the field:


Let's not forget the Marlins idea for shade on shade:


Or the Weird Cornucopia design:

People want to be comfortable. Sitting in 100° heat isn't appealing to the majority.

It was, is, and always will be the problem, you've probably seen my posts about it. But if that's what they want to after years of stats showing they should go in a different direction, I can't stop them.

Where did you find those photos of stadium designs that were never used.

Stadiumpage.com He has an unrealized concept section on the right side. Sorry I forgot not everyone knows about stadium page, he frequented the other stadium blog I go to.

With emphasis on frequented. Past tense.

Before the Texas Rangers and the city of Arlington decided to ask voters to fund a new $1 billion retractable-roof stadium to keep fans cool, the team considered other options to provide relief from the heat, including a massive shade structure on Globe Life Park.

The metal canopy would have cost at least $80 million and extended up to 100 feet over sections of the current seating area. While shading at least 75 percent of the stadium’s spectators, it still would have left those closest to the field exposed to the sun during a day game.

That seems like a nice renovation that wouldn't break the bank like a stadium would

Rangers' new ballpark approved

Climate-controlled stadium on target to open in 2020

The new facility will be built along with Texas Live!, the new entertainment complex that began construction immediately after the season. The Rangers' plan is to incorporate Globe Life Park into Texas Live! without completely demolishing it.

It's a positive that an un-needed new stadium will cost taxpayers upwards of a $1B?

The positive is that they're not building it in Dallas and that (if they HAVE to build a new stadium) the current ballpark is being saved...

That was my point. I don't think there should be a new park built any time soon, but I'm not the owner.

why is being built in Dallas a negative? Dallas didn't even go after the Rangers. OK for Cowboys to go west but negative for Rangers to go east?

The way I see it:

Dallas County
- Mavericks
- Stars

Tarrant County
- Rangers
- Cowboys

There's a balance, and I don't want to ruin it. As for Dallas not going after the Rangers, what would stop the city from doing so had the vote not gone through?
