Weird thread. Heinz is what? 6 years old. And I quite like the stadium (I do wish that it'd have been closed off to capture crowd noise better).

Yeppers. We're still paying for TRS though it was reduced to dust years ago.

We don't need a new stadium. Though I am not a huge fan of Heinz Field, it serves the purpose quite well. Football is meant to be played outdoors. Did anyone play pee wee, HS or college football in a dome?

I'm still trying to figure out why you tear down a 30 year old stadium to begin with. Seems they could have done one hell of a renovation with a fraction of the money spent on the two new ones.

Na the Steelers all their time have been an outside team and most of the fans and im sure the team is just more comfortable with the situation their in now. Plus with a new Pens arena and Heinz field is not even old at all so if we were to make plans on a dome don't be counting to hear anything about it for many years to come.

I don't like the horrible conditions and based on our recent performances at Heinz Field, it seems that the Steelers don't like them too much either. Home advantage my @**. LOL

Hmmm, the least football friendly style of field I have played on is Astroturf.

If I had to play indoors or outdoors with FieldTurf, I'd much rather be outdoors with FieldTurf.

Domes are the worst. I went to a steelers regular season game at Indy and it was the worst. I was five rows from the field and had to stand the whole time because everyone stood the whole game since it was 70 and not cold or raining. Even worse the Colts fans were drinking sissy fruity mixer drinks and sipping on perrier. Domes are the worst and should be torn down everywhere.

Yeah and rip the roofs off the retractable roof stadiums.
