A-Rod and his agent say they wanted the Yankees to offer him a $350 million contract, $100 million (a roof's worth) more than his already record contract. Player demands are ridiculous. Dome construction contractors are not near as demanding, and MUCH more reliable.

The Cavs' performance in their home opener last night was dreadful - but at least we were dry and comfortable under a roof. Are you listening, Browns and Indians? If you're awful, you better have some other way to take care of your fans.

If the Browns win at home Sunday, this will be the first time since the end of the 2002 season that they are more than one game over .500. It's not much to celebrate, but until we get a roof on the stadium, or a bona fide playoff contender on the field, this is all we have.

Here's my take on Alex Rodriguez's decision to opt out of the last three years of his $252 million contract: He thinks someone is going to pay him more. A retractable roof, which costs about $100 million, is much more reliable and trustworthy. And, in Cleveland, I'd rather put that money into a roof than pay C.C. Sabathia, who is probably going to ask for nine figures - maybe, a six-year deal at $17 million per year. C.C.-see ya'.

The NFL is playing its first regular-season game outside the country today. What criteria might the NFL use to determine which teams and games are played outside the U.S. in future years? How about December games in cold-weather cities with open-air stadiums? By then, it will be too late to do anything about our roof-less stadium.
