Another Practice Bubble Collapses



    One of the companies involved in the May collapse of the Cowboys' practice bubble at Valley Ranch is back in the news, courtesy of another structure collapse, this one in Crawford County, Pa.

    Cover-All Building Systems, a Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, construction company, had built the structure in question, a barn at the Crawford County fairgrounds, two years ago; it is thought to be the sixth collapse of this sort in the past eight years, of structures built by Cover-All, or related company, Summit Structures.

    Summit built the Cowboys practice facility which collapsed during a storm in May, leaving 12 injured, including scout Rich Behm who was paralyzed from the waist down and special teams coach Joe DeCamillis who suffered a fractured vertebrae. Cover-All designed and manufactured the ill-fated structure.

    Both companies, along with Las Vegas consulting firm JCI, were the targets of a lawsuit filed on Behm's and DeCamillis's behalf last August.

    No one was injured in Wednesday's collapse, which was brought on, like in most of the half-dozen cases, by heavy snowfall.
