The seat size is a real issue. Our family had tickets for 40 years on a row cut by the gate and sat right next to it. In 40 years the average size of the other eight attendees on our half row mushroomed about 4 belt notches so that every time you stood up you sat down quickly to reclaim your 18 inches but still got squeezed. We really did not enjoy sitting cheek to cheek and wrestling for our tiny space. Then the people in front of us started paying for those chairbacks which ground into our knees. Since the current occupants from their size must be buying 20% more concessions than they did 40 years ago maybe they could make the seats 20 inches?? I know that is impractical but only one person mentioned the seating size as an issue and no one mentioned the fact that at least 25% of the seat have poor views. The lines are not long at my concession stand or facilities. The parking is free. I can change the channel during the incessant commercials and ridiculously long play reviews. We go to one game a year and meet with fraternity brothers for a big BBQ tailgate and then afterwards most everyone goes back to homes of friends and watches on the tube I mean screen. Times have changed we can't go back and we just have to adjust.
