The press box is only 2 stories.  Eliminating the bottom level reduced the stadium cost by a million bucks or so. 

Most decent sized high school stadiums are around 40-50 rows.  It's the cost of having enough seats.  I think Dayton fans have it worse than Indian fans...


Ok,two stories (it looks top heavy to me) and ok 40-50 rows is common, I said I don't like climbing - that doesn't mean other people don't like it.  But I do appreciate you letting me know about the cost savings...

 ;D 

With a diversity of rows from 1-46 all the way to back of each end zone, there's a fit for everyone.  I think it's nice that a decent number of seats (7672) with extra space were planned.  If the Indians turn the program around like expected, the overflow will have to sit in the reserved sections on the other side.

LOVE the extra space, you don't feel like you are bothering anyone as much when you have to get up and go to the concession stand or restroom, like before.  LOVE that part.

Or, we can just bump everyone ahead of them into the press box. I'm sure they can fit a couple people in there.  :)
The thing about being an Indian is that you're an Indian, no matter what. It doesn't matter if you play soccer or a tuba, it doesn't matter if you're on the football team or the drill team, it doesn't matter if you lead the cheers or the jeers. You're still part of that "Honor, Pride, & Tradition."

I like all the leg room between the rows.  I have long legs and it was very uncomfortable before, especially when the person in front of you was using a stadium seat.  Didn't have that problem this year and it was very nice!!

On top of that, great views!!  The band formations looks awesome, the view of the field is awesome, and the scenery outside of the stadium is awesome!

Having no one behind me is a real plus.  Videoing from a seated position is hard.  When a good play breaks out, I always get people standing in the frame.  I even had people tp me on the shoulder and ask me to lower my camera because it was in their way.  I don't have that problem any more!

And you cam always step over the back, and stand up next to the press box of you need an unobstructed view.  And the pressbox might offer some protections from the elements.

This is the main reason I got the seats I got.

This is the construction going on for Memorial's new press box.  Those columns sure seem light.  Sure hope they got their calculations right for hurricane winds.

PAISD plans to build a new stadium near their new high school campus.  Why the heck are they spending all that money to build a pressbox on an old stadium?

I guess when you have such a huge industrial tax base you can do just about anything whether it makes sense or not.

The new field at the new Memorial school is the JV field (for now); varsity will continue to play at the old field. At least that is what us tax payers in PAISD have been told.
