What I don't understand is why so many American Football stadiums don't have roofs for the fans at least. I mean, if it's a cheap stadium or an old one I guess that's understandable but to spend literally billions of dollars on a new stadium, like the New Meadowlands and the new 49ers stadium, and not even protect the fans from rain and sun is just baffling to me.

If there have been built more than a handful of soccer stadiums in Europe with >20.000 capacity in the last decade without at least partial roofing, I would be very surprised. I just don't get why that doesn't seem to matter at all in the US.
American football fans will sit and watch the game in rain, sleet, snow or hail because they're not wussies!
Yeah! Sitting around in shitty weather is part of the experience! Suck it up, bring a poncho, and have some beer!

But also...

"Rooves" is correct.
