    I know my memory sucks at times but I think I remember some of the seats being replaced with wider seats. Mainly by narrowing the arms and doing away with built in cup holders.

    IIRC the seats at The Peake were "22 wide vs. CCC-Myriad "19 wide, you are correct Bill Roberson; they did make some adjustments on the cup holders. Seems like the foundation for the seats at the CCC-Myriad are steeper--just my opinion since my knees appear to be aligned above the back of the person's head in front of me in the upper bowl.


    The Thunder indicated they would not need a new arena; however they did hint that some upgrades are needed. Will be of interest to see what the renovations-upgrades will look like.

    Again, you never know, 10-15 years from now--that new arena idea may be more appealing, may want to keep the 4 sq., blocks on hold.

    We should definitely NOT "hold" the four square blocks for a "maybe some day" arena situation. There are tons of great options as far as a future area placement, should one be needed by MAPS VI.

    Saving four square blocks in the middle of downtown for a maybe use a decade plus in the future would be a terrible bet.

    One thing the Peake badly needs is a new video board. Ours has fallen pretty far behind

    In the last few years the Dodgers got a full HD video board, do we know if the city (venue owner) or tenant (Dodgers) paid for that?
