The saying that "Teams with a dome over their stadium have never won a SuperBowl" is a myth, or a cold, hard fact?

Asked by EgaoNoGenki (1141 points ) February 7th, 2010

If it’s a fact, what is it about domes that keep them from winning?

I think I’ll even offer to pay $100 to a buddy I’m watching the SuperBowl with right now if the New Orleans Saints win, simply because they have a dome at their stadium.

@dpworkin I just checked the WP article for the stadium in Indianapolis and it looks like that fact/myth is going to be debunked tonight! Tie-breaking overtimes can’t last forever, you know.

I hope you can recognize a warm hard fact.
