Damn, 800 million in renovations is crazy expensive. That's the cost of 2-4 area's. I wonder it looks on the inside

interesting to see the declining max capacity since the ACC was built.

nice photo nites.

That detroit lockerroom is ridicuolous. It's more like a board room.
Who would even want to sit on a chair like that after a game?

do arenas have separate locker rooms for each of their teams? Like that could just be a carpet that they can move, but for example, does the blue jays and maple leafs have different locker rooms? odd question meh

Rose Garden is getting a little crusty. It was state of the art in 1995, but they haven't changed much, or fixed much since it opened. It leaks, the paint's wearing out, it smells funky. You got to hold your breath when you walk by the bathrooms. Or maybe that's just the nasty food they serve people? All I know is I catch whiffs of death when I walk the rotunda now.
