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

The stadium has been flooded like that 3 times. There was a game in the 90's where the water in the lower bowl backed up 3 rows. It was over the seats in the 1st row. After that they made changes so the water would drain faster to the field. It wasn't so bad yesterday considering the monsoon rain.

The field itself actually withstood the heavy rain very well especially for a grass field. If it had been Pittsburgh, they would've been playing in mud.


That first game was against Tampa Bay. One of their last years in the creamsicle uniforms and it ended up being a 25-0 shutout or something like that. Fun game.

because the architect just put scuppers in and said "done!" without consulting an engineer in this case, I guarantee.

Thank you loyal lower level ticket buyers!!  Here have your own personal waterfall!

 

I guess that's why he didn't try to get some money to renovate the stadium.

Some of you guys seem more suited for a dome team.
