LA Stadium seeking more money

Somehow the Jags were only one spot behind TEN in percent filled and we were atrocious and you made the playoffs.

Nashville is a fast growing city, idk how that happens.

Is that percent filled excluding all the seats covered by tarps?

I don’t think you could compare tbh. This is going to be the best stadium in the world. Host Olympic and every main event. The raiders stadium is nice and all, but that had the backing of every Casino goon in the world. 

U.S. Bank Stadium only cost $1B and will still be a better football stadium than SoFi.

I don't go over my budget by three hundred dollars, let alone three billion. I wonder what that's like? xD

Speaking of Roomba's, surely they can be purchased at Best Buy, who the Rams seemingly used as inspiration for their uniforms.

HEY, we got it from IKEA. Have some class. xD

I honestly do not get the point of spending stupid money on a stadium. I have one purpose going to a game and that is to watch football and have a beer with a Burger or Hot dog. Big screen is a plus just for those who cant see. Give me a urinal or a toilet, a concession stand, and a seat. Going all out to out do other stadiums is just a pissing contest. If you want frills, shops and other restaurants go to a strip mall or a Sports bar. Its an NFL stadium and you can host other things but you do not need to drop billions of dollars on a stadium. It just means the fans will end up suffering in the long run by paying more for tickets to make up for this nonsense.

You need a trough, not just a urinal or a toilet, for the real experience.

Was going to say. I only go to college games, so to me even a urinal or toilet seems uppity.

What the heck, just dig a giant pit under the stadium and drill a hole in every seat. No bathrooms necessary!

But in all seriousness, I'm in favor of basic low-cost stadiums. They don't need retractable roofs, skyboxes and all that jazz. Either have a roof or don't. Football is better played in the elements anyway.

Whaaaaaaaaat??? $5-6 BILLION? The Vegas stadium is rumored to cost around $2 billion and it's uber state of the art. How in the world is this stadium going to cost around 3x as much? Simply because of being in LA?

Seems super overpriced even when you include retail and entertainment. And LA's real estate isn't at that crazy of a level to justify it. They clearly botched this project in a lot of ways. There's no way that this stadium costs 3x more than the next most expensive stadium in the history of the NFL. Yikes.

Meanwhile the franchise is nickel and diming guys like Todd Gurley and Clay Matthews out of their bonus checks. 

 

Nice.

To make our stadiums comparable in size?

Yes.

Need to use the money for now to fight this virus and pandemic before we talk about building up stadium.

You were right.

Glad we cleared that up.
