Couldn't agree with you more. And, the weather conditions have never seemed to stop the Seattle 12th man.

Are you thinking about what happened with the baseball stadium?

Didn't the football stadium pass by a narrow margin when Paul Allen promised to buy the Seahawks and invest a bunch of money both toward the team and the stadium?

We don't need a doomed stadium....we have a doomed team.

Did the City officals make the decision get rain in their brain?
Have you seen a domed football (soccer) stadium in Europe. I will tell you the answer - NO. Those sports MUST be played outside. That's why I hate teams that have domed stadiums

...I didn't even catch that! I misunderstood the question entirely! Did the OP mean a "domed" stadium or a "doomed" stadium? I don't know.

You are misinformed. See the other post - the stadium had a remarkably long string of no-rain games after it was built. A retractable roof might enable to host a college bowl game, but otherwise I think it's fine as is.

My doomed team, the Arizona Cardinals, definitely needed a roof in the desert heat, on the other hand.

Why doesn't "rainy" Seattle have a domed stadium? That is how football is suppose to be. Soccer for that matter.

I miss the Kingdome. I remember being a 5 year-old watching Ken Griffey Jr. and the Mariners. I still have the 1991 pocket schedule for the Seattle Mariners.

As for football, it's meant to be played in the rain.

Football is an outdoor sport. To be played in rain, snow, sleet,etc. I LOVE football and even as a girl sat through pouring sleet to watch my beloved team play.

Some say I'm crazy, I say I'm a fan(atic)!!!!

Qwest Field is the most awesome place to watch a pro football game-in my opinion of course

As everyone's said, football is meant to be played in real weather. But I don't see any reason to critisize quest field. It's been called the best stadium in football multiple times: Football - The Best NFL Stadiums (http://ezinearticles.com/?Football---The-Best-NFL-Stadiums&id=216148 - broken link)

Quest somehow seems open and gives great views while sounding like a dome stadium and letting the 12th man roar. I don't see anything to complain about

Why? Because it's cheaper for fans to bring raincoats.

If you don't like it, then you're a nancy and have no business watching the great game of football.
