What do you think the Dome needs?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Ok coastal but....doesn't it rain a lot in NO? How about retractable? Or maybe because we wear black...wouldn't the heat and humidity kill the team?...

Hey...I got it. If the top stays white.... They need to slap a giant black Fleur on the top of the Dome. It would make great TV coverage as well as a nice treat for people flying in. These are just ideas popping off the the of my head.

Haha, well if i had to sit there and watch the Saints play, I'd probably need something to calm my nerves like a cigarette.

Do they HAVE to wear black? If it was an open stadium everybody could smoke....just like Rickey does. Open, retractible whatever just build a newer stadium. It's time to change the uniforms anyway.

I like the uniforms, I think they should wear the black paints, instead of the gold. I think they should increase the leg room or have the chair somewhat adjustable.

When the dome was built, the technology for constructing roofs from fabric was at its infancy. Theoretically, one could have a retractable roof made of teflon coated/infused fiberglas, but its own properties would give rise to other issues, not to mention all the gears and pulleys necessary to operate it. The Denver Airport is a prime example.

Maybe they should go to the "All Blacks" like the New Zealand Rugby team. Just a hint of gold striping with white numbers and move to a black helmet. People look slower on film running in all black, so it would hypnotize the opposition into believing that the team is slower than it really is.

Does anyone else think that on tv the playing area looks a bit washed out? Could moving from "white flourescent" to a "yellow flourescent" make the place look brighter? In person it's absolutely dreary.

Bms, I agree with you and I don't know how you're the first to complain, but being 6'2", the seats, even on the 50 are so uncomfortable. I stand up even when an opponent does something good just to relieve the tension on backs, knees and keep the seat in front of me from making a permanent impression on my shins. Yes, BIGGER SEATS.

I actually started a thread on the uniform ordeal. Black/helmet/gold fleur with the gold jersey and black pants for home and white jersey with white or black pants for away. But I'll save that for the other thread that I started on the uniforms. So the seats are actually not too comfortable huh? hmmm....i did not know that. WHen I went to the Dome I took the $7 tour. Place blew me away I was just upset that the carpet was not laid out at the time.

I think the dome needs a caramel filling myself.
