I’m of a similar mindset…. much of our “crowding” is due to business

Decisions we’ve made RE space utilization and concessional efficiencies. The teams coming and going are a pain, especially when ECU’s path requires a country mile of rope to clear their path all the way over to the practice facility….. but that would be more tolerable IF the lower-level of the visitor-end wasn’t effectively used for storage & cheerleader/dance space. It hasn’t always been that way, but apparently someone made the call along the way to convert it to such (and it’s almost high school’ish in the way things look when you come out on that end as a result). The deadness of that end, along with our shrinking crowds likely played a part in the closing of the concession stands on that end as well…… which inherently means the other 2 have longer lines. These are easily solvable problems.

The only complaint I’ve heard that’s not…… is the tight leg room upstairs. I’ll admit that there is a squeeze (and I’m not even 6 foot), but it also something that I’ve experienced in more places than not. Space is at a premium….. so most everywhere in that era was built tight, and with the way the concrete is poured, I don’t expect it to be an easy fix…. So we’re back to chicken vs egg with winning/filling to get $ to change or borrowing $ to change in hopes of things working out. Short of something major like that, the only things that quickly comes to mind is cutting seats (on one end as a test) on rows to allow more side-to-side room or doing something like removing every other row of seats (again, on one end as a test) to give crazy leg (and passing) room. Charge more for those seats and let the market tell you if it’s worth it……
