Why is our stadium designed to dump rain water on fans?

Serious question.  Is this the norm at most NFL stadiums?  Or is it something where Jerry was like, "It would cost waaay too much to have a proper drainage system, so let's just make this Emerald Point 2.0 in the case of a downpour."

 

 

I imagine the brass back in 1993 or whatever thought extreme weather would not be too common, so that's why it's designed this way.  Yay global warming!!

It was probably just one of those things that was overlooked during design. It happens so infrequently that it really isn't cause for concern though.

Speaking as an engineer. This could be a case of not considering heavy flow rate through the drain. It may run onto the perfect spot under normal flow rates. Maybe the stadium upgrades will move them.
