And there are some silly rabbits on this forum that think redoing "coleman" was better than a state of the art facility.... Kids like bling. Kids play bball. Do it in football to be top of the world. Wont do it in bball cause mediocrity is okkk
It generally goes both ways...Gus actually seems pretty ok...for anAU person....but they are kidsand you gotta let them move on....
We're back to this again.
You realize changing the seating in Coleman is a major part of the plans, right? Your disappointed Bama didn't scale down when they are reducing capacity by close to 5000?
My friend, you still haven't answered my question. What part of the plans are not state of the art? All one can point to is the frame of the building itself.
Big difference between....a state of the art..and the second..third...fourth...rebuilding
Bama isn't Arthur Blank so a comparison of the old Georgia Dome and the new MB stadium just doesn't fit (and that's setting aside the fact that Georgia residents are footing a 700 million dollar bill through taxes.) The mere point of it being a 1.6 BILLION dollar stadium should remove any consideration of comparing the two.
In doing so, are they not building a state of the art facility? That coincides with club seating and other amenities that be included. Let's mot forget there is a lot of Coleman that never meets the eye. It's a group that's just overlooked and will benefit from the renovations.
I don't know why they're so focused on a two-sport/event arena (basketball and gymnastics only). When was the last time they used it as a concert venue? What about a configuration that would include indoor track? If you want to make money, it's important to configure it so it can hold multiple events.
Attendance numbers for those two sports? I'd have to look it up to grab the exact numbers but I can say over the last seven or eight years the totals have remained the same (give or take a few hundred.) The ladies (GymTide) average over 12K per meet with basketball pulling a little over that number.
