Smart move environmentally and probably economically.

However, this will do nada to improve the fan experience at Fed Ex...

Re: More FedEx improvements on the way

The most important thing is that someone has finally convinced Dan and others in the organization to start improving the stadium, so that eventually, the fan experience can be significantly improved. The party decks, the (probable) installation of an awning, the solar panels. They're pumping some many back into the stadium to improve it, and I can't hate on that.

depends if they let your grill under the covered parking or not, i'm guessing they won't. i'm also guessing they will cover the area of the lots where they already banned tailgating anyway.

the only reason i kinda hate the idea is because the more they fix up the dump that is fedex, the longer it will be before they are back in the city, where they belong.

That's a long way in the future even without the improvements. They will be at FedEx for awhile whether we like it or not.

Dude I hear ya, I would love it if we left Fedex and built a place we could enjoy games at for decades to come. But the unfortunate reality is that we are stuck in Fedex, so I'll be happy enough knowing they're at least trying to improve it. Granted solar panels won't do much to improve the fan experience but you can tell the gameday experience is something they're working on to say the least.

Re: More FedEx improvements on the way

I am wondering how much that will reduce ticket prices?

Hog1:

The answer to your question is that prices will go down exactly ZERO dollars and NO cents.

Hope that helps...
