re: BWA Enhancement Survey went out
Oh I think they'll definitely paint it, I just don't know about a total remodel like the picture.

re: BWA Enhancement Survey went out
Why do they need a concert venue? AMP is good for most stuff and WAC has most of the other stuff covered. Rodeo and demolition derby in Springdale like it's always been?

What is the need to spend 9 digits?? Just make it nice for basketball. The rest of this shite is a pipe dream

re: BWA Enhancement Survey went out
I think it's just a might as well situation. Modern basketball arenas are also concert venues and host MMA, boxing, motocross etc.

So if you're going to have to more or less gut the place even just for the basketball changes you might as well go all the way.

All I can think of.


I do think it would draw some concerts/acts that the AMP doesn't. But I don't go to or follow concerts much.

My thoughts as well. Shrink the seating down to 12k, give it a face lift inside and out, then call it good. That would yield a far better game day experience IMO.

Please don't reduce capacity just as we're getting good again. At least not by that much

frick concerts and events. It's a basketball arena. And for frick sakes don't drive up ticket prices to make it more comfortable

To 12k? Why so low?

No way this happens. I would imagine there will be over 15k season tickets sold for this season.

Likely to see capacity increased IMO to above 20k.

12-15k
Let the corporate suites pay for the BWA renovation, not the family sitting in section 120

The families will pay or be forced out if you reduce capacity and we are a consistent top 15 team

re: BWA Enhancement Survey went out
The original plan did call for a reduction by removing the top few rows to expand concourse. Would lose a few thousand and be around 17K.
