        So instead of of paying for new stadiums, Canadian taxpayers pay for health care? What a screwy place!

          Grass

          I remeber there was this preseason game at the Superdome 10 years ago, they trucked in this portable grass system for this game that was installed in a time frame comparable to the roll-up astro turf. Maybe a system like this would make sense for baseball since it can be installed in 12 hours and removed in 8 hours. If the weather is iffy, they could use special lights to grow the grass, like they use in Europe. Also I would strongly investigate a 4th generation turf which is allegly a much more similar proudct natural product to fieldturf which is a 3rd generation turf. I am guessing the fact the Skydome has no floor drains would be a negative, but the superdome has the same problem. The grass is named STN2000.

            Hotel

            I am curious if the rooms in dead center field are sort of like the rooms that a all suites hotel with a kitchen and couch. I have stayed in left center twice. The view if I remember correctly if you stay near center field at on top of the the end of the grandstand is very similar to the $5 obstucted bleacher seats at Yankee Stadium where you could only see part of the game.

              Probably NFL rules.

                  I wonder how the players like the artificial turf there. I'm sure it's fine from up close, but from far away, it just looks so bad. How hard would it be to put in a dirt infield and zip it back up for Argos games?

                    524A, I think. It was the 2nd last row of that section, too.

                      It bothers me how Rogers Centre has a retractable roof, yet still has artificial turf! IMHO It's a crime for baseball to be played on artificial turf!

                            2010 Turf

                            I hear that the Rogers Centre is getting new turf next year? I am curious if they are going to use a turf system similar to the new Cowboys Stadium, where the turf rolls up like the old AstroTurf, since the current FieldTurf tray system has a lot of seams in it.
