You do realize that a Retractable roof will close the Stadium for at least a year mabey more?
Dominion won the contract and probably has been consulting and working on the plans for a few months now. It's only now the news is being leaked.
No wonder the Lions aren't saying anything. Both Thunderbird Stadium and Swangard are hardly acceptable as places to play while the dome is getting a new roof.
They might have to play the entire season next year or most of it on the road except for a playoff game in November when the roof is finished.
The Stadium has to be Waterproofed and concrete sealed first as the roof will be dismantled and the Stadium is currently designed for indoor use only.
Drainage pipes will have to be built into the Lower Bowl and floor to prevent water accumulation when it rains during construction.
It's time to wake up and smell the coffee about the implications of this plan.
Clearly though, we can all see which way this is leaning. Retractable is the only way to go if we're going to put on a decent show for a worldwide TV audience of 3 billion.
