Default A New Stadium

well guys idk it seems like we're posting on the same threads everyday so im trying to add a little more flavor...

what do you guys think about a new stadium (preferably a dome)?

the whole dome thing has worked out for the colts... it's as loud as a 1000 cranky babies on a plane...

The new stadium doesn't even have to be a dome.. it can be like the one in houston or arizona with the retractable roof so none of u season ticket holders will have to suffer to much in the winter...

This would also soolve the grass problem that so many of you were complaining about during the miami game...

just imagine how fast "FAST" willie parker could be on artificial turf...

Heinz field is relativvely new so i'll wait patiently for a few more years...

Yeah, Heinz Field is a little too new to be replaced. And also, having an outdoor field in Pittsburgh, PA is the image of the team. It shows that we are tough and can play anywhere, despite challenging weather conditions. It shows that we're not a pansy fair-weather team that can't play in the snow or rain. I like that image, and a dome would take that away from us. We do, however, need to think about options other than a grass field.
CAN'T WAIT FOR NEXT YEAR!!!
GO STEELERS

The only way I'll tolerate us playing in a dome is if I'm DEAD.

Personally I hate domes. I prefer the old school outdoors in the elements with grass and mud, just like Heinz Field

Yeah, the colts are very safe in their little dome protected from everything, but I wanna see them in the mud and snow in pittsburgh, they wouldn't survive, their players just get used to being indoors.

I have no complains about Heinz Field and I can't wait to go to a game there, and I sincerely hope they keep the grass

I remember when he broke his leg in artificial turf, but I don't really blame it on the turf, it just happens

this thread needs to be revived in about 35 years... lol. but i'll go on record as saying that i will never want a dome. the only place where domes should be are places like arizona.. where the weather can get too dangerously hot for the players and fans. the teams up north need to deal with the conditions. thats part of the reason people actually live in the north and dont all flock to the south. you learn to live with it, and maybe you can use it to your advantage against teams from the south.

I recently brough my son to his first NFL game at Hienz field, the regular season loss to Jacksonville. Even though we lost, it was an absolute blast. The weather conditions that day made it a helluva alot more fun, I couldn't imagine travelling to Pittsburgh to watch the Steelers play in a dome. Any Steeler fan that wants a dome should have to turn in their colors!!!
