Not really sure what needs to be updated. Maybe a Godzillatron like UT has? Not really necessary but OK.

The clubs are nice, the box seats plentiful and I can't think of a section that's just dreadful to sit in. The stadium isn't any kind of forward thinking architectural masterpiece, but nothing in Charlotte really is. Can't think of much reason at all to change much.

I disagree, Charlotte's architecture is somewhat held in high regard.

It isn't the prettiest stadium in the league, but it's certainly not the ugliest. You also have to keep in mind location. Few stadiums in the league can claim a better location than ours.

Plus, it's a private stadium. Lots of the newer ones were built by holding their respective cities to a fire for public funds. I don't think Jerry is too keen on doing that. He takes a tremendous amount of pride in being self-made.

The only 2 upgrades that I would want is for the endzones to be black all season and maybe a logo at midfield

two upgrades I want:

Better Beer

More field paint ( not the endzones)

Surely those wouldn't be so hard.

im sure it will be a while before the stadium is replaced. at least i am proud to say it is a nice stadium. i was really impressed the last time i saw it in 1999. its nicer than the superdome, the georgia dome and raymond james. one thing that really stood out to me is how clean it was, much like Charlotte itself.

Richardson is plenty wealthy, but a stadium cost a lotta cash. usually at least a $billion or $1.1B. I dont really think he has a way off the hook to his relationship with psl holders of Bank of America stadium, and without a PSL type situation, i dont think he has that kind of assets to build a new one on his own, unless he were to involve the local governments, and i dont think his pride would allow him to do that.

Well, that is sort of the whole point of the thread, you know, it being modern... If you last saw it in 1999 it might not be so impressive anymore.

But I trust your judgement and I believe it stands true 11 years later. (No sarcasm intended.)

While I like our stadium, it's nowhere near state of the art and there are a lot of better looking stadiums out there. But since lots are city owned, they can get makeovers easier. I'd assume any renovation would come out of JR's pocket. I don't see him doing that. Nor do I see any dealings for a new stadium. We will have what we have now, for a long time and will be a, "gosh this place is a dump" in a decade.

Update the horrendous TV's around the pavilions.

Just put in a LED strip on either side of the stadium and a bigger jumbotron.

Stadium is in great shape and always clean.

But feel free to keep bitching about something else that is pointless SMF. You are most amusing.

Stop trolling. I didn't complain about a single damn thing in my post, I was just throwing the question out there as to when you think it might happen.

I mean, I forgot this is the Huddle offseason. Instead of threads like these pertaining to the team and the organization, maybe I should post more about what children of players do at church or videos of our draft picks graduating or maybe what club I saw Player X at last night.

Don't see them building a stadium anytime soon. Since it was paid by PSLs and those owners were told it was buying their seats for a lifetime.

For the life of a stadium. It's called "fine print"... haha

If not for Katrina we'd probably had a stadium on the riverfront.

If not for Katrina the Saints would be in Los Angeles.
