some Legion Field seating sections have been CLOSED
saw some pics of Legion Field and the 2 lowest sections on each side of the field have been tarped off as have the upper 2 sections on the visitor side. Looks like there will be no seating on the south end zone side and only limited seating on the north end zone.

These changes will consolidate seating and give us a much "fuller" look for crowds.

Attaching 3-4 sparklers to a few end zone support beams would probably bring them, thus, giving us airy, even more intimate feel

This doesn't make any sense. There is only two sections all the way around the stadium- upper and lower, divided by the walkway that goes all the way around.

The north and south end zone seats are the newest parts of Legion Field seating. An earlier photo of the old south end (with Gate 7) was shown earlier in this thread. The North end zone seating is the newest and was built so that its front supports did not conflict with the track (as in Track & Field) which was when Legion Field was still hosting those competitions. The track is still there, but has not been maintained for years.

As I recall, before the north end zone seats were built, Legion Field was a "horseshoe" stadium, enclosed only on the south end by low level (the same height as the original east and west stands) seating.

No,

It's just the lower rows where you cannot see over anyone's head on the sideline anyway and on the visitors side when he says sections he doesn't mead the entire upper level, just several rows.
