Yeah, good luck getting the folks in Pittsburgh to pony up the money for another new stadium so soon after HF was basically ramrodded down their throats in the PA legislature.

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...
A dome has basically robbed, ruined, and taken away the entire identity of the Minnesota Vikings. Granted, they don't have the history we do, but look at highlight reels of the Vikings of the 70's and it's classic, outdoor, snow driven football.

Now, they are the north's version of the Atlanta Falcons and their identity is gone thanks to that dome.

No thanks. I don't want that for my favorite football team.

I guess everyone could see the difference between our so-called grass (a friggin embarrassment) and the Pats turf. Last Saturday, our field was being ripped apart by the players although there hadn't been a game played at Heinz Field during the 2 weeks prior.
Yesterday I could see that Gillette Stadium was in great shape.
The weather in Pittsburgh is not as bad as in Boston and yet our field looked like sh*t.
Hope this junk is replaced during the off-season.

No way would I ever want to see us move into a dome. I also like the grass and horrible field conditions. It gives the place a different atmosphere from other stadiums. What I would have liked was for the design of Heinz Field to take into account the accoustics. I am envious of places like Seattle where it is deafening at times. I know our fans are twice as rabid as the seachicken fans so I can only assume the open ended design of our stadium takes away part of the home field advantage. The seattle stadium has these butt cheek things on the top which reflects the noise back down onto the field. I wonder if HF could be changed in some way to increase the crowd noise. I know closing the open end would make it significantly louder but I kind of like the open end.



Of course maybe we could just pipe the noise in like Indy

Maybe if the Stadium is like the one that they have in Dallas now.. with the retractible roof or Arizona's.. That way they can keep it closed during the week heading up the game and then open it up on sunday morning brite and early and let the elements take over..

i shit golden bricks. perhaps we can use them to build it.

wasnt more money owed on the 3 rivers stadium loan than it originally cost to build, when it was finally imploded?

yeah, the taxpayers wouldnt be too happy to know they were paying for 3 stadiums at once.
