The commissioner talks about a new stadium, fans talk about a new stadium, politicians talk about a new stadium. Do we really need one?
What are the reasons the current stadium can’t be renovated or retrofitted to meet the football needs of the new owner? If it can’t be, is there space available for a new one to be rebuilt adjacent to the current stadium, and the current one ultimately torn down to provide space for parking or other needed facilities? Between the stadium site and the adjacent CC isn’t there enough room? The infrastructure is already there and seems decent.
IMHO, it's a get out of jail card for the NFL. Kind of like when the Dodgers moved to LA and the reason was Ebbets (sp) Field was old.
...As for the Ralph, it's old but has great sight lines (some say best in the league). I have to believe their is enough luxury seating (pry needs updating) and don't buy the BS that a retro-fit will kick them out for a year. Somehow Green Bay and KC did it.Fine put in temp seats at UB or play some at The Carrier Dome. It's the NFL TV is the money!
...Which leads me to huge new stadiums, look at MLB all new ones are smaller because as TV has improved to HD why pay a **** load of money to go to a game when you can stay home? NFL doesn't get it.
