Escalators at B.o.A

38 posts in this topic

Do you think we should implement these in the future? I've been to other NFL stadiums and to get to the upper levels they either have escalators or a circle ramp...Not the kind we have at B.o.A that's a pain to go up and down....who's the bright minded architecture that decided that when they built the stadium...just a thought...

What about disabled people?

Yes, they need to do something other than the one elevator.

They have large elevators for disabled folks. Everyone else can walk.

I've never seen a line of people in the wheelchairs waiting at the elevators, it's obviously sufficient.

I took the elevators once years ago after my hernia surgery. Got in and out right away.

I ride the elevators with my dad. He's not disabled but 70 years old and the ramps are a bit much for him.

Switchback ramps are your friend. They were also considered a great thing when they were built in order to save space unlike the circle ramps.

Of all the things you want done to our stadium, it's escalators. Those things would be a clusterfug anyways even if we did have them.

I struggled to stand and wait 30 minutes going in.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
