    The size might not be ideal right now, but I think the atmosphere will be much improved after the renovations. The 'final' solution will be when we create enough interest to draw larger crowds. We have enough of a fan base that this is a realistic goal, IMHO

    Yeah, lol. It must really kill him that he can't live in dogpatch, :-)

    But what a pathetic little POS, though if you think about it: he actually spends a great deal of time driving around and taking pics everytime he finds a missing "L" ....... guess he's doing it for that lawsuit they filed, lol.

    The roof ties in nicely to all the garbage cans that grace Cajun Field 4 months out of the year

    And I know that this would probably be cost-prohibitive, but wouldn't it be great to have our logo or name on the roof? Given that it is such a visible icon in town it would be a great place to do some advertising for ourselves.

    They had a 30th anniversary luncheon today and showed the pic of the renovations. It's somewhat different from your picture.

    For starters, all the seats will be black.

    A giant "Louisiana Ragin Cajuns" on two sides of the roof that can be seen from all angles. Similar to what is on the "Mercedes Benz Superdome"!

    I would think that because it is run by the city, they are not bound by any name restrictions.

    With a FDL separating them.

    Will the new rendering be released to the public?

    That itself will make the dome feel smaller, good idea. I wish they would paint the ceiling black.

    Still moving the suites down to the area of the former "200 level?"

    But that could also generate good money with suites not located in the nose bleeds...

    Anyone else notice how messed up the video board in the middle was last night? Hopefully just loose wires, screens aren't very old.

    on our side, we had some pixel issues where it was just red for parts of the screen no matter what was on the screen.

    Lower suites is cool and all, but the biggest issue with the Cajundome has been the lack of intimacy for basketball games. These upgrades, if they are in fact like what is being shown, will be incredible for the atmosphere.

    Currently you don't have to be sitting that far up (100 level) to be distracted by people coming in and out of the game through the open areas on the floor. We need to get the crowd in closer and then we will really start to see the "home court advantage" come to life. I'm excited about this!

    If they have black seats, the empty seats will show up more with fans wearing red. The red seats in the first rendering look hot.

    Germ pouch was obviously at Cajun field over the week end and took very select pictures of a bunch of temporary stuff that is a band aid until the renovations happen. All of his best photography can be seen on BDB&B. The best part about it is they act like that hell hole is better than Cajun field. Yes they added about 500 box seats in the end zone. Your biggest donor in the end zone ???? If he weren't envious he would not post pics of the few hand selected things at CF.

    You want to paint everything black????? Don't you. You should start a petition to change the school colors to black. Then you could have your high school, college and pro team all in black.

    Those trash cans are the best thing they ever did. Much better than old cardboard boxes line with thin bag they used to have. Not sure if you are suggesting they should remove and replace between games? That would be very labor intensive.
