            what a whitewash!!
            the b.s. in this piece sounds like it was written by the same hucksters (ho&k/owners/commish. offices of mlb and nfl) who are still trying to strong-arm local taxpayers into paying for mall-parks.
            it wasn't what the fans "wanted" which pushed the recent new mallparks - it was the owners wont of more revenue!!
            never mentioned also is that most non-pricy seating in these new places were farther away from the field than the places that they replaced.
            never mentioned once was the move threats by owners unless they got what they wanted...

                  I'm guessing that you have a Mac.

                  Try this:

                    Quick Time sucks. I'm on a Mac. Download the VLC media player. It works wonders.

                        I thought it was an OK doc. It's probably meant for total neophytes who don't know much. But it didn't suck. I was disappointed that they only mentioned Tiger Stadium/Navin Field in passing.


                        There is another one on Domed Stadiums. I can post the links if anyone wants them. But it's terrible. They start out with a simple gloss over for about 5 min of domes in general, then 80% of it is about the Sky Dome. They don't even mention the Metrodome or the Silverdome.

                          Surprisingly, not one mention of Dodger Stadium, the one park that truly bucked the concrete cookie-cutter trend in the 60's.

                            Ah, the nice people on the history channel who completely snubbed us at http://www.Digitalballparks.com

                            We taped 30 minutes of documentary interviews but I guess their notoriously "conservative" producer didn't realize I had long hair, before they called me into the studios.

                            They certainly didn't mind using all our photos though...
