    Your being nice. I was thinking more in the line with Michael Moore.

    After all, we all know that the events of yesterday morning were orchestrated by the Republican Party and privately funded by Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly in order to discredit the current administration and push for a Palin-Pawlenty ticket in 2012.

    I think the point is that the inside video was faked which doesn't make sense. Probably there was a camera left on spooling to a DVR (wow, they make those?) and they just pulled it from that. Clearly there were a few people in the building as you can see a guy in a cart scoot out of the way early in the start of the collapse.

    I do wonder how the covered stands stayed looking so pristine .. I mean why the heck would the place be cleaned up before a game? :rolleyes:

    I dont think it was faked, NFL Network is usually on the field at 4:00 am with full camera crew to setup for NFL Net's Pregame show that airs at 8:00am CST. 4:00 am is CREW CALL TIME! So that's when the crew shows up, uplink truck is on site, and it usually takes a 1/2 hour to setup camera, lighting, ect. The production crew usually shows up a bit later, but (depending who's doing the game, NEP TrioVideo, ect.) Sometimes the production crew is already there setting up the trucks, and usually the truck is hot even though no body is there. (powered up and ready to go)

    Being that it's an Indoor arena, I also would assume that they don't cover the cameras. It could be very possible that the NFL net crew that was there, shot the on field stuff, and the camera guy could have sold the footage to fox whom had all of the other camera angels. Quickly edited for air, and there you go!

    Actually, I would bet (and given the closeup of the roof itself) that they had the cameras on because of the possibility of something happening. Let's see. Roof is purposely deflated because of snow storm, leaks were reported earlier, cameras are in place. Hmm, maybe we should film this to see if anything happens.

    There is an article about the reasons the cameras were left on at http://www.usatoday.com/sports/columnist/hiestand-tv/2010-12-12-metrodome-roof-fox-sports_N.htm.

    Shouldn't be. I see no reason why it would be.
