My class reunion got a tour of the press box after the PNG vs LCM game.

Hall way at lower level......and that elevator is one quiet, smooth ride.


The open deck area for video cameras.


The brains of the video control room.  Our kids do a wonderful job covering the game.


From the upper level of the press box, two levels......nice chairs.


Top level.


What a view!

You may not want to B**** about the price of the chairs, garbage cans and whatever else  that was ridiculously spent for the press box!  THAT MONEY SPENT  IS COMING OUT OF MY SCHOOL TAXES !!!! You may not have a problem paying high dollars for your school taxes....but other may !!!

Look at it this way.  An $850 chair with a lifetime warranty will last a long time.  Anyone ever buy one of those cheap $100-200 chairs at Office Depot or Office Max?  They don't last.  You get what you pay for.

Correct IndianFan. My employees used to buy the 150.00 office max chairs and we would have to replace every year. We started purchasing the more expeinsive chairs the past 4 yrs and we haven't replaced one yet.

You cannot make some understand or ever understand business logistics.

Just for the record--the warranty only covers mechanical parts such as the casters (usually less than $10.00 to replace).  It does not cover normal wear and tear. No one said to buy cheap seats that fall apart that I can recall--just show a little prudence and take bids on good quality chairs from several vendors and let a committee choose what to purchase and not just one person. After all, 16 chairs at $850.00 is costs us $13,600.00 and 51 some-odd chairs at $478.00 cost $38.950.00 and that's not counting the $300.00 trash cans. Seven floor mats alone were $6,600.00.  Total for the chairs only was $39,568.00.

I agree w/Squaw !!!

Priorities are not in the best interests of the students and their education!!!  Ridiculous expendures will not have an excuse greatest enough to pass alot of peoples feelings and opinions !!!!  I'll ask again, does the pressbox restrooms have a bidet in them ?

Maybe it does, who knows.  Perhaps we could reconstruct the old restrooms for the complainers to use.  Everyone knew how much would be spent on the stadium before the bond passed.

I don't remember b--ching?  I have just never seen an $850 fricking chair.  Lifetime warranties on mechanical parts of chairs are very important, especially compared to the crappy warranty that we are getting on the roofs of the buildings.  Now, I'm bi--hing!!!!!!!

Something wrong with this picture...is there anything wrong with $300 chairs?  That I could see, having priced them recently...next I would like to see what a $300 trash can looks like.

I tell you what, when you that increased tax bill in your hand in the near future, we will see who is bi--ing then.  Mark my words.

Maybe you should have bought the ones that I have in my office, they were inexpensive and have been there for 10yrs or mare and still work just fine.  I just bought another one for 99 dollars and it ilooks just as good as those...in the press box if not better.

Pretty stupid if you ask me.  No wonder we have a deficit budget again this year.  I realize that this was bond money and doesn't come out of the general fund but it is still stupid.  If this is any indication of our normal purchasing procedures, we will be bankrupt before we know it.  They could have gotten nice recliners for the price of those chairs.  Did we really need "Lifetime Warranties" since they are only used a few hours a week during home games?  My office chair cost $140 and I use it 8 hours a day 5 days a week and it has lasted for years.

The point is you sit in this chair regularly and take care of it.  Those visiting the press box will sit in the chair once a year probably and not take care of it as such.  The chair needs to be prepared to take some punishment. I was told the chair I sit in at work was $1200 for the record.  I believe it is called an 18 hour chair, or something like that.

If the problem is that visiting coaches will not take care of them, then why not spend $7 and get a metal folding chair.  These are pretty indestructible and they only have to sit in it a few hours.  Heck, they are coaches they should be able to handle not sitting in the lap of luxury for a few hours.  Don't get me wrong I love PNG football but I think that our district is making bad choices on purchases and the superintendent nor the Board are doing anything to try and fix the budget deficit.  This is a serious matter and getting the best chairs that money can by is not the right thing to do at this time.
