Good idea to draw those chalk lines around the field to keep the non-players (including the subtitutes) a safe distance away. The problem is, nobody seems to respect them.

Love this stadium, especially the tier arrangment, just don't like the purple (yes I know it's the teams dominant colour).

Love the stadium, hate the fans who still whine about the Colts, love the fact that the Colts have like a 10 game winning streak against them.

Great stadium. I'm only curious why it doesn't have a roof.

Why would you ruin such a fantastic stadium with a roof. It's aesthetics is based on a dominent facade.

Why, oh why do so many Europeans believe that they have the only decent stadium design culture.

actually I really like it, the bowl is asimetric enough to give it some character, but still has some continuity, that helps the athmosphere.

From when was that photo of a football match (soccer), seems to be a sellout???

This stadium is not more famous only because its tennant and city are not that "glamorous" Imagine if this stadium was in NYC or LA or Dallas, hosting the Yankees, Cowboys, etc... plus frecuent internationall soccer friendlies, etc...

I think you took my question the wrong way. I'm NOT saying there's something wrong w/this stadium in terms of its design. I just don't understand why people at the stadium are not protected from rain.

Because this is how we like our football...







For us, if the players have to play in that weather, then we should be right there in that weather with them. If you want to be covered and sheltered from the elements, you can watch at home! Give some real fans your tickets!

And, that's why they make these...

I have to admit though, I can handle the rain, snow, sleet, but it would suck sitting on a frozen seat, it's doable, but it would be uncomfortable.

One thing I always wondered though, in areas where there isn't such conditions (like the south of the US) they also don't have rooves, as someone who has sat in the uncovered areas of the mcg and got burnt to a crisp, sunburn aint sexy. Snow covered fields are I suppose.

No weather? Why have a roof? There's absolutely no need for one.

There is a roof in Phoenix at the University of Phoenix Stadium. When it comes to the sun and heat, that's about it.

Have you ever sat on an aluminum, or metal bench? I used to go to games at the old Foxboro Stadium where the Patriots play and 95% of the seats were metal benches. On the cold days we used to wear extra padding in our butts.

Personally, I think it should be frowned upon for NFL teams to have roofs on their stadiums. But alas they would not be able to host the Super Bowl or Final 4.

I notice your profile says Britain. When I think of your weather, I think of Seattle during non summer months with even more year round miserableness. Notice that Seattle's NFL stadium has a roof over the stands. Even their baseball stadium has a retractable roof. Most of the United States simply doesn't have that weather. I know here in Dallas its rare to see rain without lightning or a storm involved so those games are usually delayed anyway. Then because of the multipurpose nature of a dome you usually end up with no roof, or a retractable roof/dome. A simple roof is simply not all that useful to most places. I could see Miami as a place that would probably do a partial. Otherwise, maybe Houston or New Orleans, but they went retractable and dome respectively for their multi-purpose nature.

Crazy to think about, but the NFL and MLB have been playing indoors for nearly 50 years.
