Richmond's stadium was the first thing I thought of when I saw this post. I really hope there are well-thought plans for this space and not just an open area with vendors/family attractions.

NJ's point above removing a place where fans are close to the action is a good one.

I can't imagine they won't have temp bleachers, as in the past, when game ticket sales make it worthwhile.
Not to mention the noise factor they create when the opponent has the ball near our goal line.

Saturday marks the return of Graduation to Zable. Looks like high of 86 and sunny.

I'm surprised they didn't cover the turf for graduation. Folding chairs right on the field today.

I'm surprised the goalposts apparently don't come down...

I think thats the posts for the netting.

Great shot.
Chairs on turf justify replacing it more frequently using academic funds?...its ingenious...

And to followup on earlier posts about which endzone view is better if we are getting rid of one end of bleachers...you decide?

I don't think there is any question, aesthetically, plus, you don't have to worry about the afternoon sun, sitting in the scoreboard end zone.

Too bad we can't combine graduation with a home football game. We'd jam the stadium every time!

Anyone see attendance numbers for graduation? Curious if more parents/family/etc actually attended with more seats available.

Estimated crowd, according to Daily Press article, was over 14,000. Far more than Kap[lan Arena.
