Domes make the most sense for any city if it's going to be publicly funded. You can host super bowls, final 4's, conventions, huge concerts, etc 365 days a year.
This is the reason they will have a dome, not for football, but for basketball games. I still think the way to make more money off tickets is to build a 100K+ seating stadium and charge less for tickets. All of these extra features are getting to a point where they intrude on the product on the field and make it a less enjoyable event.
