I don't envy anyone who has to try to justify this setup or to sell it. It's a turdburger.

I doubt that i would have made this tournament anyhow, but after seeing this? Oh, HELL no.

Last time Mackin was asked to sell something so stupid, he quit his job.

So if any local people in Dallas want to come to a game they get screwed with only endzone seats available?

I'm trying to figure out if there's some obvious math problem I'm missing. Is it a camera orientation thing? Maybe the "institutional use only" part is the limiting factor in terms of width? But the courts don't have to be centered anyway.

Maybe the GA premium is all we need.

I'm thinking they are centering the courts on the field so they won't have to adjust or add to the existing lighting.

RE: Conference Basketball Tournaments - Seating set-up
I've been to a college conference tournament setup Like this before. It was when my brother in law was playing NAIA ball with Dalton State. Tournament was at the facility adjacent to Crampton Bowl in Montgomery. So, thats how far our conference has sunk. We are basically NAIA now. This is about as f*cked up as a soup sandwich.
