LOS competitive disadvantage

I'm not sure if you saw Pagano on the McAfee podcast talking about how the Colts have a disadvantage in a one o'clock game when the roof is open and it's sunny.     How in the world was that not discussed when determining the home and away sidelines?   I'll post the segment.   They talk about it early in the video.    There is some salty language.    Watch at your own discretion.

Many fields are this way.  Growing up, most high school fields were set up that way. My HS, the town i now live in switched to the “shady side” maybe 5 years ago after decades and decades looking into the sun.  
But i’m referring to a setting sun not  a1pm overhead sun.

not sure if was for warmth (sun) or what (for HS fields) , but i also often wondered about orientation.

I am not sure but it wouldn’t shock me if the NFL has a rule saying which side of the stadium is the home side and which side is the road side because some teams (cough) Pats (cough) would switch sides every week if they thought it gave them a better chance to win.  I think the better question is how do the people who designed the thing didn’t see this as a problem.

I'm not suggesting they switch it week to week.    The sun during August to November doesn't drastically change.   How did no one even think about it is my question?

I know you aren’t.  I was just saying why I wouldn’t be surprised if the NFL doesn’t have a rule for it.  I honestly don’t know if they do or not.

For watching on TV, it sucks when the roof is open.  
 

I’ve only been to 1 game live at Lucas and the roof was closed, so I cannot comment on the live dynamic comparison. (I’d have been to more live games, except I live in a different country. lol)

I agree about the watching from home.

 

However, having been to several games,  I personally like the roof being open...weather permitting.

    • At 5-1, they are certainly in the driver's seat. I'm hoping my Bengals can give them a decent fight next weekend, but that's a tall order. Hopefully Burrow, Chase and Mixon can keep Lamar off the field long enough to score the upset!
    • I’m not convinced running Taylor an extra 5 times per game is going to break him.
    • Which Chargers team played the Ravens? The Ravens are hitting on al cylinders. Cleveland & Pittsburgh are all but done. KC if they make the playoffs will stall there. The Colts have put their own backs against the wall. It is too early to predict now but it is an uphill climb now.
    • Dang didn’t know he was that good!! Thanks for the info.
    • Way to shift the goal posts and condescend when you do it too. Since your angle on this board is to show us all how much smarter you are...here's a chance to prove it. The statement was "Paris Campbell is a bust" and you said he's not. Please, come down from the mountaintop and learn us...   1. He's played in 14 games of a possible 38. BUST. 2. He averages 25 yards per game in the games he's played. BUST. 3. Factor in opportunity cost and he's worth 20 yards a game and 1 TD every 19 games. BUST. 4. He has 2 TD's in 3 seasons as a #1 or #2 WR. BUST.   Here's one more little tidbit for you to chew on. You know how guys like to trash players around here for hype but not proving anything? Sometimes posters make statements like "hes been great in training camp" or "I actually read stories about players" but they dont back it up with anything substantial - you know what I mean?   Darick Rogers played in 5 games - FIVE and he has as many TDs and 35% of the total yards as Campbell does IN HIS CAREER. Therefore, Darick Rogers is arguably the best WR this team has ever had....because, you know, I actually read a story about it where Bill Belicheck, Peyton Manning and Vince Lombardi said it.
