"Open Air" is the problem with this whole "new stadium" thing



http://www.11alive.com/news/article/225816/40/Super-Bowl-in-Atlanta-Hefty-price-tag-for-open-air-stadium

The problem that Arthur blank and the NFL don't seem to understand about a new stadium in Atlanta is the whole "Open Air" aspect of it. People who are not from here don't realize that the majority of season ticket holders and Atlantan's (see the poll numbers) do not want an "Open Air" stadium. If you changed the question to Domed or Retractable roof stadium (best of both worlds) then I believe that the opposition shifts if not to approval then at the very least, far less oppostion. I am a season ticket holder and have been for 20+ years. I dont want an "Open Air" stadium. I hate sitting in the pouring rain (3-4 games this season I would have left if they were not in the dome). I dont like sitting in freezing temperatures either. Who would want that if they had a choice. And in case the NFL forgot, they were lucky we had a dome when they did play the Super Bowl here because there was an ice storm which pretty much shut down the entire downtown area for a couple of days leading up to the super bowl. I know I have said it before, but I will keep saying it. Get your heads out of your a$$es and listen to the fans. We do not want an "Open Air" stadium. I would love a retractable roof stadium, but I guess since the fans would prefer it, we will never get it.

Peace!
