I'm sure someone like Replacement probably remembers this. Never realized the city ever looked at a football stadium that was covered.
What I remember is being young, filled with promise at this, disappointed Omniplex wasn't done, then realizing the city had made the right choice in later building the Coliseum and worldclass Commonwealth Stadium instead.

But the folly of my youth at the time that Omniplex was voted down had it that Edmonton had made a mistake, was backwards thinking, old fashioned, etc. Its a dynamic of youth to think such things.
