The roof was going to be the most spectacular feature of the new stadium. It was hyped all over the world as an engineering marvel. The roof was supposed to be able to open and close depending on weather all season. It also took two hours to open last time when it was supposed to open in 12 minutes.

The lesson to take away, even the Falcon's stadium chokes.

The Atlanta area has some of the nicest weather in the country, why even build a retractable roof stadium to begin with?

Arthur doesn't like pesky Vermin hanging around his field, remember that's why he got rid of Mike "Ratman" Smith.
