In Denver, the Metropolitan Football Stadium Board "voted unanimously to recommend" that the state Legislature "throw out" plans for a possible retractable dome on a new stadium for the Broncos. The Board also recommended that the Legislature allow the Board to retain control of "potentially lucrative" naming rights to a new stadium. Naming rights "could generate more than" $20M a year in revenues (DENVER POST, 3/20)....The TAMPA TRIBUNE notes problems at newly constructed Tropicana Field, which hosts this weekend's NCAA South regionals. The stadium's rotunda, its "signature architectural feature," was closed because it was leaking "badly." NCAA Media Coordinator Jim Marchiony: "There are still issues here and they're being worked on" (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 3/20)....The Flyers announced plans to build a $10M twin rink skating center in Voorhees, PA, which would serve as the practice facility for the Flyers and the AHL Phantoms (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 3/20).
