Did you remember that I put the word "Most"? There are a few that have roofs, but they are the vast minority.

a retractable roof stadium and a roofed stadium are totally different concepts

um, no.
in fact we love it.
honestly, who cares about a little weather. As has been said before, its about what happening in the field, not the stands.

This thread makes no sense at all to me. Standards change over time. It's OK to say which one pleases you aesthetically more or less than others, but "worse"? I mean I love the looks of the Stockholm 1912 Stadium, but it would probably be inadequate today. The Athens 1896 is the city's reconstructed ancient stadium...historical and beautiful, but...ancient!
Between the recent ones, again sure some are more beautiful than others...but I don't like the basic concept of the thread.

Plus not to mention this thread is extremely biased considering the United States current situation. My vote was for Barcelona. And every Greek in this thread is going to vote against Atlanta because of there undying immature jealousy.

Turner Field is the worst by far...

Although it makes financial sense for a baseball stadium to double as an olympic stadium, however cheap it may be

My vote went to St. Louis but I agree with AAL --> "Standards change over time"

BECAUSE Samaranch is a Spaniard. The previous games were held in his country. Of course he's going to be biased. If 2004 was held in Belgium what do you think Rogge would've said in Beijing. Plus Samaranch is one of if not the most criticized of IOC presidents.

Dude...you are the biased one here, take it easy.

...only that bomb was enough to put Atlanta under Barcelona, and this is not being biased this is a fact, now say what you want, I wón´t start a euro-northamercian argument about who has it thicker with you.

We do play in the rain. If it's a complete downpour or there's lightning, then the tarp goes over the infield. (Nobody wants to run on a completly muddy infield.)
