Royals President Dan Glass initially stated that the Royals did not need a roof. The Royals have said they will contribute nothing toward its construction. Would it not be more feasible to construct a retractable roof over only Arrowhead Stadium?
This would save millions of dollars in construction costs, as there would be no need to build tracks or install expensive motors required to move the roof.
Lastly, funds for this roof should come exclusively from Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt and the private sector. The taxpayers should not be obligated to fulfill lifelong dreams for millionaires.
