Cards new stadium on discovery channel (1 Viewer)

The new stadium is being featured Sunday (Feb. 19) on the Discovery Channel series "Extreme Engineering." Cardinals Stadium will be the first episode of the show's third season at 10:00 p.m. (Arizona time). It will air several more times.

The building is being highlighted for it unique architecture. In addition to a retractable roof, it will have a retractable field, rolled in on a rail system for games, and rolled back outside for watering and natural sunlight when not in use, in turn making the stadium a more attractive venue for a wide range of other bookings.

that sounds pretty clever, doesn't it?
 
on now

they just showed+explained the fabric that makes up part of the roof. It's about as thick as jeans and yet(if I heard em' right) can support up to 17000 pounds.

Explaining the retractable field coming up after commercial

 
that field is just too cool.

They showed one in Saporo Japan where the field floats into the stadium and spins 90 degrees. Unbelievable!

 
Watched it today. I go down to Cardinals HQ tomorrow to select my seats. I was hanging on the edge of not renewing my season tickets. This show actually got me pumped up.

let us know if ya got any feedback from tomorrow's visit
 
Thanks Bri for the tip. I enjoyed watching the show. The rail set up to move the field inside and back out was interesting.

The architect host guy for an "engineering" show was goofy, but overall enjoyed the hour.

Odd that you'd be a season ticket holder in the old stadium and even think about whether to renew now that they're in the new stadium and finally ready to compete.
 
You'd think that a show focused on great engineering feats would have a host that wasn't a pansy who's afraid of heights.

I don't know, walking on top of that rubber like substance on top of a dome unfinished seems pretty risky to me. I realize the rubber like substance can hold alot of weight but it almost defies logic how much it can hold so....I'd be nervous too

It was more like the crawling up the top steps to even get onto the solid steel part of the roof in the first place.
