Dome or No Dome: It is advantageous for the Browns to have a dome.

I tried not to get engaged in the Cleveland Browns’ decision to “renovate the old stadium or build a new domed stadium.” I’ve seen a lot of individuals share their thoughts on the matter over the last few weeks. Many supporters would want to see the old stadium renovated rather than the team moving into a new stadium in Brook Park, as it appears the Haslams plan.

(The question of who should foot the bill for these kinds of things is a bit off topic for now.)

Building a new stadium with a dome wouldn’t be a bad thing—in fact, I believe it would be beneficial.

My viewpoint on the circumstances

Since the mid-2000s, the NFL’s present landscape has changed significantly from that of the early 1980s and early 1990s.

Teams are passing the ball more often and rushing the ball less often in the current NFL edition. You are playing an outmoded form of football if you are attempting to play “old school,” early-2000s football in the current NFL environment. There would still be “mystique” and “Cleveland’s football spirit” if the Browns built a dome stadium. If we are being honest with ourselves, it hasn’t even existed for several decades.

The team will function without you if you choose to stay behind since circumstances are changing and you must either adjust to them or risk falling behind.

The benefits of having a dome stadium

The fact that the Browns play directly next to the lake is well known, and it can have both positive and negative effects.

It feels like you are playing in below-freezing conditions during the winter because of the wind that blows directly adjacent to the stadium and the wind chill. When the Kansas City Chiefs played the Miami Dolphins in the wild-card round of the previous season, the low temperatures caused several supporters to get frostbite, and some of them had to have their fingers amputated. Something such as this can be avoided with a dome stadium.

Football teams that play in dome stadiums maintain their own identity as a squad. For instance?

The Lions of Detroit.

Even though the Lions play in a dome stadium, they are nonetheless a physical football squad. After the Women’s National Title game was recently held at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, Cleveland may be able to host more major sporting events in the future, including the Super Bowl, WWE’s Wrestlemania, and perhaps even a Men’s College Basketball National Title game.

The Browns don’t have to alter their style of play just because they might play in a dome stadium. To think that is absurd. Rather, it provides the team with options based on the roster they have assembled. They can play it openly without worrying about the weather limiting their passing game, or they can be as tough as Detroit but within a fan-friendly dome.

It would be enormous if a retractable dome or dome stadium could create new opportunities for the city. There is nothing wrong with the Browns perhaps receiving a dome stadium; in fact, since it appears that the team’s owners are leaning that way, we might as well welcome the prospect.
