    I respect the packers history. I was a fan of thiers when Jimmy Taylor was toting the rock.

    However, the Packers, Bears, Steelers, Patriots and few other teams need domed stadiums!!!

    The 50k fine was for not cooperating with the NFL investigation. The NFL said they found no evidence to support the chick's complaint based on the info they have.

    Brett couldn't have bought that much pubicity for 50K!

    Why?


    I think it should be an NFL rule: Real grass. No roof.

    For my answer to that, see the Wusses thread!

    Oh, and while we are at it, lets bring back leather helmets, bigger footballs and the Flying Wedge.

    I think leather helmets are a great idea. There is NO BETTER WAY to limit concussions, than to de-weaponize the helmet. The soft padding is what protects against concussion. The hard shell is great if you're going down the highway, but not necessary on a grass field, and only contributes to injury.

    I think domed, climate controlled stadiums are STUPID! Not to mention a colossal waste of energy, which contributes to foreign energy dependency.
    You still have to tailgate and walk miles in the freezing cold. So what do you do with your 6 layers when you get in the comfy stadium seat? Or will they have valets to take our coats and serve caviar and Absinthe?

    Yes I have. And also witnessed the ONLY good reason for a roof. Saw Ray Guy hit the rafters of the Astrodome with a short yardage punt.

    Also got to see Jack Lambert open-field tackle Earl Campbell, one on one.

    Don't get to see either of those things happen very often!
