Doesn't the city handle the bathroom maintenance?

You have not been to enough games to know what the game day experience at Lesion Field has been over the years or you wouldn't have said that. The only time that soap, toilet paper, and paper towels were certain to be there was the game after the Classic. Concessions were bad to awful. There was much more that I'm hoping is now behind us,

Hell I remember having to try more than one bathroom before finding one with a stall door, much less TP.

I got free tickets to the President's box one weekend because I had taken my 4 year old to the bathroom and had to leave him sitting on a toilet in a stall to go on a search for TP. Took several stalls before finding some.

Shot an email to Carol Garrison and Brian Mackin just to give them a heads up that the stadium folks weren't giving them their money's worth. Even though I tried to refuse the ticket (that's not what I was emailing for) they insisted that my family come to the tailgate and watch the game from the box.

I miss CG!

You and me both. She used to even swing by the fraternity tailgates and have quick conversations with us. I haven't seen Ray Watts since he had a full police escort.

So...the city doesn't handle the bathroom maintenance? I'm just wondering why the city would deliberately not stock tp and soap in the bathrooms.

The city does handle it but UAB has to complain to get a roll of TP.

To answer your question they just didn't care. Things should be noticeably different now.

when UAB first went 1-A the head of the Park Board was a huge UAT guy. He did not think UAB should have football. UAT still played their first game of the season in Birmingham at that time. The park board would stock the bathrooms for the UAT game and that was it. We would have the leftovers for the first game of the season. I spent years bringing my own soap and tp for my kids. If I was just a casual football fan instead of a diehard UAB fan I would not have gone back. Which was my guess. The list of issues and slights are long. Things did improve after the asshat retired from the park board and UAT stopped playing here.

RE: Jox lunch guys just said UAB AD Mark Ingram stated big announcement coming
As has been pointed out before, 99% of complaints about Legion Field are about fan amenities, not the football team's needs. We can HOPE that a new BJCC facility will provide an improved fan experience, but won't the same folks probably be operating it? What happens then if after the first games, there is a lack of better concessions, soap and TP there?

(I strongly suspect that the TP and such are brought to Legion Field but over time find their way to the homes of the stadium workers as "bonus income")

Do crappy concessions and unstocked restrooms seem to be a problem with other BJCC events?

No. The Parks and Recreation Board of the City of Birmingham and the Birmingham Jefferson Civic Center Authority are two different entities.

I know the administrations are separate, but I don't know that the on site operating work forces are completely separate as well. Will Legion Field concessions people be excluded from working a new BJCC site?

The management of the BJCC and the Parks and Recreation Board are made up of completely different people. When is the last time you've been to an event at the BJCC?

Will someone who worked concessions at Legion Field work concessions at the BJCC? Maybe, but the management is different. There is zero reason to think the BJCC will have the same problems that Legion Field did. There's no reason to think that the city won't be putting on a better show at Legion Field this season either. Why does everything have to be so dense?
