    I remember the yearbook, too. As a matter of fact, I still have that yearbook somewhere in my pile of saved stuff from my childhood. It basically showed a newer version of the Astrodome.

    Well then you're a moron, I have no reason to lie about something that I saw in a yearbook. Track down the yearbooks from the mid to late 70's and you'll find a rendition of a retractable dome stadium as well as other designs for a replacement stadium.

    I would rather have 25 rainouts per year than watch one Tiger home game indoors. Yuck.

    Do you remember if it was retractable?

    It doesn't really matter either way. It just doesn't seem that plausible that they were proposing one 10-20 years before one was ever even built.

    can anyone from the viewing area post a synopsis of DD's interview?

    thx
    Distribution of wealth is not in any way democratic. It is, in fact, tyrannical, in that a very select few own almost all of it, while most have little to no access. To have a country that prioritizes wealth over individual rights is the antithesis of democracy.

    Yes, it was retractable. Just because nobody built one before the Skydome doesn't mean the technology didn't exist. Besides, something being floated around in the late 70's wouldn't have been built for at least another 10 years.

    I would be a moron if I did believe everything you told me. I don't know you, so I'm not going to. There no reason to be so offended by it and start calling names. I gave a reason why I doubted your claim. If you have a problem with that then I don't know what to tell you.

    I believe it was a retractable roof they were proposing. It had a small write-up about the roof.

    Yeah, but just because it was in a yearbook doesn't mean they were taking it seriously. People put all kinds of those things in yearbooks to generate hype and a buzz among fans.

    Interesting. I remember when Skydome was built it was billed as this technological breakthrough... I wonder how long it took them to design it?

    I absolutely agree. Detroit is pretty much the perfect climate for baseball. It's a little cold at times, a little hot at times, but what do they have on average, 3 rainouts a year? Minor inconvenience.

    I'm not pushing anything, I just think it's hilarious that you're calling me son when I'm in my 40's. "Check yourself son" is kind of hilarious, you have to admit. If you're a mod and making threats like that, it's really immature of you.

    I don't think jz should get banned. He just needs to calm down a little.

    Distribution of wealth is not in any way democratic. It is, in fact, tyrannical, in that a very select few own almost all of it, while most have little to no access. To have a country that prioritizes wealth over individual rights is the antithesis of democracy.

    I'll apologize for calling him "son" (which was meant in humor) if he apologizes for calling Yoda a moron.

    Calling someone who disagrees with you a moron isn't mature either, though.
