    News2 Stadium Upgrades Coming?

    http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/12/0...of-dreams.html

    The article starts off talking about the 49ers new stadium, and continues on to reveal the Dolphins will release stadium upgrade plans in about a month. Look on page 2 of the article, but here is a quick snip from it..

    "It will have a different approach to the canopy roof idea. It will close the 25-yard distance between the stands and the field. It will raise capacity closer to the field and lower it in the upper level. It will improve the lighting.The upgrade price is not known, Last time it was $250 million. Like last time, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross could pay $150 million or more for the upgrades. And funding for the remainder of the project will not raise taxes for residents, Dee said."

    P.S. Sorry if this was posted.

    They can call it an upgrade if they want, it's been over a decade of "upgrades", no matter what, it will remain a dump, in the middle of no where. Only real upgrade is new stadium.

    But who is going to shell out the money for a new stadium? I dont think the tax payers want too and I do not think Ross will pay for it either.

    Stadium Upgrades Coming?

    $250 mil in more upgrades for that ****hole? Just build a new stadium (easier said than done, and wishful thinking, I know).
    Die hard Dolphins and Devils fan.

    I was going to be a bit tamer in my description, but the exact theme. Everyone should root against this move. It's not an upgrade, it's merely further verification of idiots in charge. The more money and time we waste on that facility the further down the road we actually acknowledge and address the problem.

    Means nothing. The stadium is a dump now and will still be a dump after the "upgrades"... The only upgrade it needs is to be demolished to the ground and rebuilt.

    Well we already have a circus, so why not a water park.
