What do you think of the new digs?
Each side looks about 4x bigger and it looks twice as steep. This is lacking game day perspective. You guys are going to look bigger in those. It should help you guys get some better quality attention. My knee-jerk reaction is that this is great! The 2012 Rapids appear to be stepping their game up on many fronts.
Attention folks on the PA side, moshing may not be a great idea in these bleachers...
And, hopefully, be less rickety when everyone is jumping around.
I think most of the PA folks would enjoy the extra danger!
One advantage of the off season is that it gives me a chance to pause and consider the ramifications of not using common sense.
I make no similar guarantees, post tailgate and in-game.
Don't you mean post-alcohol intake?
Just to be clear. This has not be decided upon by the Rapids. Agree sight line is better but there are some additional issues.
soooooo the picture is not real?
It is real. They just put the bleachers there to see what it would be like. Security has not decided that the bleachers will be in place for opening day. Although they may.
That's kind of confusing, like taking home a perspective couch and posting a picture of it on facebook to ask all my friends what they think about it and then having to explain that I didn't buy it yet.
I'm guessing it will probably happen. Just saying that this was a picture from a walk though testing out a different set up. It is entirely possibly the Rapids could change their mind. They haven't approved it yet and didn't release this picture. I;m guessing it will happen. Just stating that it hasn't been decided yet. As previously stated their are a couple of security concerns.
I think this setup will make it appear that your group numbers doubled without even trying. If I were in security I would worry most about how to quit my job in security.
post tailgate and in-game
I don't see a difference in the words....same letters and everything.
Just saying what I know. I agree if you work in security you should reconsider your life choices.
Did they just reinstall the old bleachers?
No, these are much taller and wider than the previous bleachers they had in there pre-terrace days. The only issue I have, is the ability for people to sit down (with there being a bench). Get that removed, and solve the safety issues. We are game.
Man this is great! Just one more item in a list of good news this offseason! I was pretty bummed out about the upheaval in the organization last fall, but with all the positive changes that have been happening, my opinion has completely turned around. Don't know how much of this is Hinchey's doing but hats off to whoever is the mastermind.
I dunno, the people at the level where "concerns" can be voiced are probably well-paid. I'd guess the goons are not, but probably just like wearing windbreakers.
the long and the short if it is they may or may not be sturdy... they will more than likely need to be either A: Bolted to the ground B: Re-Enforced or C: Both... These are the same bleachers i sat in when the US played Guatemala at Dicks.. some of the plank seating actually buckled from AO/ Sam's Army jumping..
I was told those were the same bleachers from before... Just more of them.. .and as for the seats... im ok with them being there for people to sit during half time
Can't tell 100% from the picture, but it looks like they've eliminated the patio & tables on the East side of the terraces, which was my favorite place to be, at the rail, with a table and a beer, plus the easy Heineken refill behind you.
No matter. I'm in 108 this year
Upgrading the capacity, height, and structural safety is good, though.
I may just have to grab a corner table on the promenade once in a while, and start off the second half with a beer from there
Much better. Can't really call it terraces anymore. Need to leave extra space in front for over-head banners (like the CO flag, etc.). Still sucks raw eggs how people access the north end (one little tunnel where they feel compelled to stamp your hand like we're entering a concentration camp). Love the back of the bleachers (allows all kinds of possibilities with banners on poles). Oooooohhhh and we can now do a proper avalanche! ;-)
One of our places to watch after the half was the bridge connecting the northern end and the eastern end (where the ambulance usually is). Don't really know why, we just liked it.
Does anyone have news on this? What do we expect to see in the north end on Saturday?
The bleachers will be there.
