    Anybody else filled one out?

    I did it twice and hammered them both times on what appears to be a plan to include better seating for the elite while there doesn't seem to be any improvement for the common fans, aka the ones who don't come to games anymore.

    Do these go out to season ticket holders? If not, where do I take this survey?

    And I'll add, the rich people bring the money. I get it.

    They emailed me. And I had to use those email addresses to access the survey.

    It's a reflection of how all of America functions now.

    It's so weird walking around the stadium and in a few steps going from country club to what I'd imagine essentially hasn't changed in forever.

    My favorite parts of the stadium are the old concourses that haven't changed in forever.

    What exactly does a plan for better seating in the country club sections entail?

    Some things they asked about:

    -a patio section for the upper south end zone, sold as individual seats.
    -seats with a drink ledge around the top of the lower level, sold individually
    -a field level club room with upgraded concession, couches, etc
    -some patio concept sold in 8 and 16 similar to the donation required for a sky bix
    -individual seats on the west sideline

    So would that mean losing another 2 or 3 thousand seats?

    The west sideline renovation specifically mentioned 3-4 inches added to each seat, so no idea how it couldn't mean that.

    My first motion would be refunds plus pain and suffering when they.lose.

    Pay more and get something better doesn't really sound that bad.

    Only if you can afford it.

    Without looking at the prices I'm guessing I could if I really wanted to do so, but I prefer to watch the game and stand for the majority of it. I think there are quite a few people that have a similar attitude and would prefer keeping costs down over adding massaging recliners to section YY.

    I hope there are. However, from what they were asking, I got the impression that a. one of these options is coming and b. it's at least 1500 a pair.

    And that was only the lowest number they asked if we are willing to pay for the massaging recliners in MM. I doubt it's priced that low. And everything else went up from there.

    Maybe I'm just sentimental but I don't want my Neyland experience improved, even for free. I want to have a seat that would only fit the butt of a child and yell and scream with 105,000 other drunk savages.

    Edit: But as far as the concourse goes, I guess I'm ok with the luxury deal. When they put in a Petro's I was in heaven.

    I wouldn't mind them putting in seats and cutting it to 95K or whatever

    I mind cutting the seats below 100k, especially so if it isn't for improvements that affect the majority of those in attendance.

    I'm not going to poo-poo folks of means wanting comfortable digs, but what is the point of a stadium at all if we're going to slowly transform the upper deck into a jousting tournament berfrois (digging deep for that one) at the expense of tradition and the average fan? Let's just play in a 100 yard courtyard of a billionaire's mansion, and allow the common folk to hear about the game via shouts from the wait staff. "3rd and 12, pass incomplete! Pass it on!" "3rd and 12, worm burner. Pass it on!" "3rd down and it's getting hot, pass it on!"

    I get all that too, I just look around most weeks and there's not 100K in there. Some of that has been the crappy mccrapness, but it's a trend in most places. I'm not saying I WANT IT but I wouldn't perdo la testa over it
