commonwealth is pure garbage, players like natural grass, but edmonton's grass is garbage, the centre field is horrible, the field gets rock hard and slick when its cold and has a horrible drainage system, ive seen better fields in pop warner stadiums in the states, and they spend a quarter of the money that is spent on that toilet bowl called commonwealth stadium.
The esks mave have the biggest video screen, but it aint the best, and bigger doesn't mean better.
-retractable roof is a smart idea, plus the esks can ask the government for money the province of alberat has plenty of money, look how drunk ralph klein gets, that province has tons of disposable income and look at fort mcmurray , alberta and how rich those snobs are, ask them to donate some. Hugh Campbell's family is rich they can donate some money, the same goes for wayne gretzky he played in edmonton and can donate money. Stop making a big deal outta it. Also if they get a retractable roof they can host the Vanier Cup, NCAA Bowl Games, Bigtime concerts during the fall/winter, conventions, trade shows, even NCAA basketball tournaments.
-Plus the city of edmonton could easily build a track around clarke stadium and make that a permanent track/field facility, also moving the seats closer to the field is easy and a simple process, stanford stadium did this in 10 months and have a new beautiful 50,000 seat stadium with excellent sightlines. I will give you the website, and teach you a little knowledge, stop being an ignorant cocky alberta beef guy.
