Please reference the sport at hand. We don't need your softball references in the football sub.
I remember when they used to play football on baseball fields. I believe the 70’s saw a huge explosion in multi use facilities. The Mistake By The Lake. 3 Rivers Riverfront. Metronome Astrodome. I think where Oakland A’s and Raiders played is one of the few remaining

Wrigley and Fenway used to host pro football teams but that was before multi use stadiums were cool. Are we not counting bowl games and other higher profile cfb games because I can think of a half dozen mlb stadiums that have hosted those in recent years.

Candlestick Park in San Francisco and Kaufman Stadium in KC, were also baseball/football stadiums, and the Syracuse Chiefs (AAA) occasionally played games in the Carrier Dome back in the 80's & 90's. Also, MSG is home to the Rangers and Knicks. Back in the 90's when I gave 2 craps about the NBA, there were plenty of games with NBA players slipping on the court from the condensation of the hockey game the night before. Multi-use just makes sense, even if you have slipping players and a diamond in the end zone.

It makes a lot of sense to combine hockey and basketball arenas since they are so similar. Football and baseball are so different I understand why they started making specialized stadiums. I know NHL players generally don't like playing on ice after it's been used for basketball though since it slightly messes with the ice somehow.
