Ya know....I gotta say this.
I was at the 'stick on sat and it'll be sad to see her go, but it's just time. She is BY FAR the oldest unrenovated stadium in the NFL. Just pumping a few million into her won't fix it. Her BONES are old. It's time to start over.
As for the PSL thing (actually called SBLs)....I have a bit of a different take on it.
The SBLs are insanely expensive. No doubt. People forget tho that stadiums back in the day were built with public money. Cities won't do that anymore (particularly in CA). The money has to come from somewhere
Additionally.....people who are currently Season Ticket holders have a pretty good racket going. They can choose 3 or 4 games, sell the rest (to fans of EITHER TEAM.....thats how you end up with so many Cowboys or Steelers fans) and essentially go to those games for free. Then, if the team makes the playoffs, they can sell those tickets for a fortune. Some of the tickets being sold right now for the NFC Championship are going for as much as $20K or $30K. Thats ONE TICKET for ONE GAME.
Who makes that money? Thats a season ticket holder, not the team. Now come at me with the SBLs being outrageous. Being a season ticket holder is a SWEET deal right now.
