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

Just for perspective, at least this didn't happen with us in the building.

Still haven't cleaned the leaves from the gutters.

 

 

 

Good thing I don't own BOA because that would be the reason for the flooding.

As I stated in another thread, I am so sick of the JR bashing.  Now he is expected to figure a way for several inches of rain to evaporate after landing in a stadium that is shaped like a bowl.

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.

 

LOL ... or too many Bojangles boxes covering the drains.

 

Was the water pouring over the concrete barrier in the upper deck's front row or through holes designed for another purpose?  I was too busy admiring the pools being created in the lower level.  It still wasn't as bad as the Jags game.

It's happened more than twice - I'm cognizant of that because I sit on the second row and our seats typically are underwater too.  We just sit on our seatbacks and enjoy - when it gets really high, first row is completely under water and those people don't even have that option.  One thing I did notice yesterday at the game that was new was a new drain in the concrete at the bottom of the aisle.  I don't know whether that was just at our section or in all of them.The instant replay booth is right in front of there so it could be just there to keep water off of that.In the past, it's actually be sealed up so no water would drain from there to keep that piece of equipment dry.  I think the drain helped because our row ended up ok and the people in the first row was able to sit on their seats with their feet up on the rails and they were ok too.  The rain only makes it more fun.  We never have left our seats in the rain - except the one time when they forced the entire stadium into the concourses because of lightning.

They should reroute all drainage to the visitors locker room.

It's one of the many problems wrong with the stadoum. JR knows it and its one of the reasons he wants a new stadium
