Field and Stadium Types Added to Team Game Finder

Posted by Mike on November 8, 2012

We've just added field type (grass or artificial) and stadium type (domed, open, or retractable roof) to the team game finder tool, which you can use to learn that Oakland is 1-7 in road games on turf in the past 5 years or the Packers are 18-12 in domes since 2002. In addition, we are trying to hunt down data indicating whether a retractable roof stadium was open or closed on gameday -- if you have any source of that data, let us know in the comments.

    As a Colts fan and season-ticket holder, I have tracked all circumstances of the roof and window during Colts games at Lucas Oil Stadium since it opened. I don't know if I am enough of an official source for you, but I am 100% sure of the accuracy of my data. If you are interested, please email me at the address I just entered in order to leave this reply.
