    I know it has a retractable roof. If it is open is there any chance there is wind in the stadium? or are chances that there will be none?

    they also have a natural grass field?

    The roof figures to be open to allow all the aerial cameras and stuff to roam the skies and get the different kinds of shots. It shouldn't be windy at all, Arizona is nice this time of year, not too hot. I'd be surprised if it's not a perfect day for passing. Not sure about the grass.

    Cant see how the wind can affect that stadium even with the roof open.

    I'm pretty sure that they will close the roof before the game starts like they did in Houston.

    That stadium is incredible, the grass field actually rools out of the stadium and into the parking lot so they can have other events, and the grass gets the sun it needs.

    I think it is about a 4 hour drive from Vegas, and big dollar Giant fans, this is going to be a real payday for the scalpers.

    I would be calling ticket agents in Green Bay today, maybe they have a few.

    Here's the stadium: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Phoenix_Stadium

    It has grass that grows outside and rolls in when needed. Pretty sick design.


    Also, not that you can predict superbowl weather, but for the next 10 days there's less then 10 mph winds and around 66 degrees each day.

    I want the roof open. Remember Houston vs Panthers......teams were gassed in 2nd half as it got so hot inside the closed dome.
