    can you use that picture and give me an idea what your saying? I can't conceptualize it..how are they gonna move the lower bowl closer and leave the upper bowl the same distance? Won't that be weird?

    The 400 levels are being removed because of the 4 screens in the uppers right?

    What if he means he's just gonna knock out that concrete and just add some rows that will take its place thus adding some seats this bring those rows closer to the field, I don't think it's the whole section being moved closer.?

    I'm happy for you DJ. You have been the main proponent on this forum for a renovated stadium and now it appears the work has begun.

    Also did you read where the Rams owner purchased land outside L.A. and he plans to built his own stadium and move the Rams from ST. Louis.? It is nice for me to see another owner who is willing to fund his own stadium and not expect the tax payers to pay for it for him.

    I hope this is a lesson for all the other cities with NFL teams. If the owner wants the taxpayers to pay for a new stadium or renovations to an existing stadium. Tell the rich owner to pay for it himself. Taxpayers should never have to pay for stadiums IMO. Especially since only a very small percentage of the taxpayers in a city or county ever attend an event in these stadiums.

    They said they're ripping out all the concrete. That means theyll have to repour the concrete. The lower bowl will be closer, because they'll be adding more seats.

    By saying all and then being sure to mention including the concrete specifically, I think it is pretty safe to conclude there is more than just the concrete being ripped out DJ.

    I think it will be key for attracting events, but if all their gonna do is add some rows at the bottom, pretty much just extending the bottom section then there won't be any competitive advantage, fans will still be too far away to feel engaged into the action..

    The new sections will be made of precast....

    Heres an idea of what he means...and why they will be closer to the field and with a new rake:

    Garfinkle's tweet explicitly says they're going to rip out the entire lower bowl.

    You're getting your wish here, Pal

    the stadium when finished will look completely new....modern...and will be reflective of a world class franchise.

    Now if they can precast a new football team as well.

    12:00 PM - 5 Jan 2015

    With using the picture that was shown I can interpret that statement in many ways..it could mean "this" basically means the seats gets ripped out, and the concrete that has the x on it gets knocked down to add some rows at the bottom..

    I have heard nothing about these prefabs being moved in that VT is talking about, I mean if that's what they were gonna do I'm sure we would of known, I'm not gonna get my hopes up here, I don't think their gonna do what VT says.

    I think you're in a state of denial right now my friend.

    You've wanted this so bad that you just can't possibly imagine it actually happening. But it is. All indications here are that the entire lower bowl is being ripped out and what you've wanted for as long as I can remember (2007-2008ish) is happening

    The way the picture was taken, it looks to me like they're removing everything below the Club level. Notice how the perspective in the picture appears to have purposely made the Club level almost unviewable, while everything below it is in full view. Had they taken the picture from a different perspective, the Club level would've been much more viewable, and the whole thing would have a different feel.

    100 level is the lower bowl. 200 level is Club. 400 level is upper deck.
