Terraces, they're not just for football!

I could only DREAM of having that kind of support for our team! I think when it comes to cheering on your team, the Europeans are far ahead of us as far as organization goes. Over here we kinda "do our own thing" more individually or in small groups. Over there they really have that pack mentality / "social collective" mentality going.

Great vids!!!

The lower lot would be a GREAT place for it, because it would leave the current arena to play in while being built, it's right off the highway, and it would get rid of that EYESORE of a downtown we have with the backs of all those old buildings.

But somebody said they'd have to do a big soil replacement there because the ground's all contaminated underneath. Which doesn't seem like a big problem anyway because they're probably going to be digging down 20 feet into the ground to place the foundation of the place anyway.

Default Properly elevated seating rows that keep fans close

I LOVe how the Euros do a lot of their rinks, with the seating rising up farther each row and not far BACK as much. I think it brings the fans right on top of the ice and gives a great atmosphere that way!

And a standing room SECTION is a must!!!



All the people with drums and flags and stuff that take up too much room when you're locked into a specific seat would have a GREAT time in areas like this!!
