There shouldn't be a roof at all, but some geographies, climates, etc. in the US "require" one. Especially if they want to use the stadium as convention space for the other 300+ days of the year that it isn't hosting a sporting event.

I think a domed roof gives the building an "indoors" feeling, which just doesn't feel right for a stadium somehow. There are plenty are large roofed stadiums that don't have that look, and yet still cover all the seats. You just don't get that impression of that rectangle of sky being hopelessly way above your head with a non-domed roof.

As RaiderATO pionted out some of the extreme climates in the US require a domed stadium.

Domed stadiums are very loud if that's what you mean.. Listen to the noise in the New Oreans Superdome on 10.03.2010..Who Dat?? Who Dat??

That's a lovely statement. I'm sure the New Orleans Staints appreciate that.

As you may or may not know our sports culture in the US is quite different than the rest of the World. Personally I'd never say anything negative about about how countries outside of the USA root on their teams.

By the way college sports is where you will hear singing & chanting in the USA. Not so much in the NFL..well except for this..

The noise is not just for the hell of it. In football, the home crowd tries to make as much noise as possible when the visiting team has the ball. This makes it harder for the offense to hear the signals from the Quarterback. In loud stadiums like the one shown above, this makes it impossible for the offense to hear any verbal communication, which leads to mistakes and penalties, and also makes it extremely difficult to change the play at the line of scrimmage. This is one of the reasons why it is much more difficult to win a game if you are the visiting team. Football teams even practice for this by blasting loud music during their practice sessions to simulate the crowd noise.

seems to be a bit of bad sportsmanship, but point taken. Still is a bit of a racket though

In American sports(Football, Basketball and Baseball), everything is fair game. The crowd can do or say pretty much anything it wants. Check out the video below about Duke basketball fans.

Where was that? I've been to baseball a few times and it was very sedate.

Actually the only time it was noisy was at a game in Seattle. Nothing to do with the game stirred them, but they had cartoon speedboat races on the scoreboard between innings, and the majority of the crowd were screaming their heads off for their boat to win.

It was a particularly dull game, it has to be said.


As for unsporting, it's hard to think of too many crowds around the world that are sporting for team sports. I remember a game a few years back when my team (Reading) were playing Bournemouth on the last day of the season. Bournemouth were winning 3-1 at half time, and were really on a roll. If they won, and Wigan (just above them) didn't win, then they were in the play-offs and would play us again - and would probably beat us in the form they were in.

If Wigan won though, they were out of the play-offs, and in the second half we took great delight in signing about how Wigan were winning 2-0, and they'd blown it. You could see their heads drop and we came back to draw 3-3, costing them their play-off spot.

It was a complete lie. The Wigan match finished 0-0

Baseball can get really loud but only on playoff games, specially if the crowd gets their cheering towels.

I hope you know for certain that they got divorced. Otherwise you would feel awfully silly if it turns out that she passed away due to a terminal illness

As pointed out, noise in American football has an effect on the game. By the same token of making communication nearly impossible for the opposition, fans also need to know when to make noise when their own team has the ball. That's why you don't see songs during game play. You simply need more noise while the visitors are on offense and you need to be able to stop while your own team is calling signals. You'll even see the home team signal to mute the noise a bit some times. Its just different. Some teams still have chants or songs in between relevant times. Look up Rocky Top or Saw Varsity's Horns off. They simply have their time and place.

Since when do you refer to a dead spouse as an "ex-wife"?
