    Don't forget Jomo, these are people who initially estimated the stadium would cost $800 million to build. They were only off by $900 million.

    It's no surprise. A static dome can get expensive due to it's span itself. Nixing the retractable roof saves money not just on material, mechanical and labor, but it completely alters the way the rest of the stadium is built.
