Yet still we have video boards from 1998. Why would we get new video boards when everybody loves watching replays on almost 20 yr old technology. Plus it’s not like the current ones are going to catch fire…….oh wait
The Bucs said the new boards will be in before the NCAA Championship game in 2017 . That game is played at the very beginning of 2017 , so that means we will have the boards in 2016. Approx 2 more years to wait.
From what I understand, the TSA had is scheduled the last two seasons to have the video boards replaced but the Bucs have requested they hold off until they can review and choose a more dynamic, state-of-the-art set of video boards. There was an approved budget for the TSA, so whatever the cost the Bucs will pay out of their own pocket.In the meantime, the Bucs are paying for all upkeep of the existing boards, saving the tax payers on maintenance fees that would normally be paid by the TSA.Hopefully they'll be in by the 2015 season, but they will definitely be in before the 2017 National Championship game.
I wish we had been smart enough to do something like the Seahawks Stadium. Still an open stadium, not a dome….but the audience is almost completely protected from the sun. It of course makes things louder too.[img width=400 height=400]http://cbspittsburgh.files.wordpress.com/2013/11/crop_down74.jpg?w=610&h=610[/img]
