The Roof[edit]

Does anyone know how long it takes to open/close the retractable roof?

It takes around 4-5 minutes. The Diamondbacks actually have a song whenever the roof moves.

Fair use rationale for Image:Chase Field logo.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Chase Field logo.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Funding Furore[edit]

This section seems to be heavily slanted against the public funding of the stadium. 216.229.35.170 (talk) 02:17, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

The funding the ballpark was controversial but it is not fair to say that it was very unpopular among the citizens of Maricopa County. The 1989 referendum was just for the City of Phoenix not the entire County. The sales tax ussed was not the "general sales tax" was a special 1/4 cent levy specifically for the ballpark. The tax actually was removed before the ballpark opened. There was a cap on the sales tax collections of $238 million, which when reached, the tax was removed. The Maricopa County Stadium District also agreed to fund an additional $15 million through debt financing backed by certain stadium revenues. This provision was later redone.

Polling at the time found that about 20% to 25% of the citizens were strongly opposed with the overall support exceeding 50%. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chromebolts (talkcontribs) 23:10, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

How quickly you forget, dude. Here's a quote from the New Times in 1995: "One poll taken shortly before the stadium district board voted to levy the tax indicated that two thirds of county voters opposed the tax. The board voted 3-1, with one abstention, to impose the tax, anyway." The people of Maricopa County hated the fact that the Board of Supervisors had steamrolled the stadium tax over the wishes of the voters. Jlmorgan (talk) 15:53, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

removing POV tag with no active discussion per Template:POV[edit]

I've removed an old neutrality tag from this page that appears to have no active discussion per the instructions at Template:POV:

This template is not meant to be a permanent resident on any article. Remove this template whenever:
  1. There is consensus on the talkpage or the NPOV Noticeboard that the issue has been resolved
  2. It is not clear what the neutrality issue is, and no satisfactory explanation has been given
  3. In the absence of any discussion, or if the discussion has become dormant.

Since there's no evidence of ongoing discussion, I'm removing the tag for now. If discussion is continuing and I've failed to see it, however, please feel free to restore the template and continue to address the issues. Thanks to everybody working on this one! -- Khazar2 (talk) 00:43, 21 June 2013 (UTC)
