    From the looks of that sketch, the stadium plan looks to have a hole in the roof ala Cowboy stadium. Gosh I hope that's not the plan!
    I think they're big glass panes. Hole in the roof wouldn't be very practical in Minneapolis

    yeah, and let's make it only 80 feet above the field!

    lol. no way. That thing is the worst thing to happen to a football stadium. Fans are complaining that there is so much motion it can make them sick (literally 50+% complained of nasua after the 3d debacle last week), and the players and coaches complain that nobody is watching the field, they are all watching the game.

    That is a 60 yard mistake.

    Actually, you aren't that far off. The plan calls for a roof that allows ambient daylight into the stadium, so it is some kind of semitransparant roofing.

    I don't like the hole in the roof. I know that is where the retractable pane would go, but IMHO it is an eyesore.

    Do you think it's uglier than the dome?? haha
    lol. Yes I do.

    I actually like the Metrodome, especially since I still remember what a shit hole the old met was. My problem with the Metrodome is the number of club seats, bathrooms, concessions, and width of concourses.

    I really don't think it looks all that terrible, and honestly, I could care less how it looks if it meant the Vikings staying in Minnesota.

    Think of it this way: You go to the bathroom in a nice new million dollar home. That's the new Cowboys stadium. Now you go the the bathroom in your Aunt Clara's sinlge wide built in 1973. That's the Metrodome.

    I totally agree. I wouldn't want that big thing on the ceiling of our new stadium. Like you said more people probably watch that and I think it would be a distraction more than anything.

    As far as the dome looking better than the "new" stadium, I personally love the dome too, but I wouldn't mind having a new stadium though to make the vikes more appealing to say, possible free agents.
