I read the plan has been finalized to put a retractable roof on Heinz Field. Is this legit? I hate the idea.

Is this what you're talking about?

Quote:
PITTSBURGH, PA – The Pittsburgh Steelers unveiled their new retractable on Heinz Field Friday morning, the completion of a $200 million renovation to the stadium.

Heinz Field has been notorious for having awful field conditions after any amount of rain, and the new $100 million roof will help solve the problem, being able to fully close or open in just 20 minutes.

“We wanted a design that would stand out, one that would reflect the Steelers, especially the part of when we get deep in the AFC Playoffs,” owner Art Rooney II told reporters during the ceremony.

The design was done by renowned French industrial designer Wegoteliminated Bythejaguars, who also helped construct the roof of AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys.


It was posted yesterday. That's the only thing I could find on Google. I think you got bamboozled.

Jesus. The picture I saw you couldn’t make out the toilet seat. Well played by the guy who sent it to me.

Heinz Field is a shitty stadium and if we can do something to close it off to have some semblance of noise again, I'm fine with it. Don't care how it looks. Even if it's a legit toilet seat.

TRS is almost 20 years gone now. It was a fuckin' donut with astroturf. I went to a bunch of games at both places. I can't remember TRS as loud as the '08 AFCCG at Heinz when Troy pick sixed Flacco to clinch the win.

I didn’t say it was better, just louder.

Ofcourse, excluding that pick six by Troy you mentioned. I was at that game too and hands down the most Incredible game I've ever seen live and it’s not even close. As far as Heinz noise during that moment, Swiss can vouch it rivaled the immaculate reception noise. He was lucky enough to be in the house for both.

x2. Being that I live in Indiana and pretty close to Cincy, I've gone to Paul Brown for every game the last 5/6 years (including the Joey Porter fiasco playoff game). Really the stadium themselves are similar built, but the noise factor is so much louder than Heinz has ever been. I think the loudest it's ever been at Heinz (in person) is when I was sitting in section 108 and A.B. had 'The Extension' on X-Mas a couple years back.

So Heinz is shitty just because the noise isn't loud? I would agree it was an embarrassment back 10 years ago when the field was a mess, but that's only because the dumbfucks allowed the Panthers and all the high school football to chew up the field. I think they've fixed that now, but thinking back to TRS, other than the fact it was loud and all the glory years of both the Steelers and the Pirates were made there, what else does TRS have over Heinz?
