HA HA !!! I'm really not as much of a traditionalist as I made it sound. I really don't mind the Trop, I actually LIKE the idea of the comfort for the fans AND the players.
It's a really quirky place to play, but they've made rules to govern the silly stuff that can happen, so it's equal for both teams.
I hope someone takes the dome idea and does the movable playing surface like they did for Cardinal Stadium
. Real grass, indoor climate control, with an opening dome for nice weather. The best of BOTH worlds!!
