    So excited, they never do things like this, it's gotta be good. They never announced when they changed the court so I think it's got to be bigger than that, and the name just changed so we know its not that.


    New, bigger Jumbo tron?

    Fan section for activites inside the fieldhouse? (Like at Great American Ballpark for Reds games)

    I'm assuming this means we're replacing the jumbotron.

    I've heard they've had conceptual plans for this for years. Should have full high def screens and a lot more LED displays for advertisements. I think at one point (hopefully this is still the case) the plan was to replace the clocks on each corner with LEDs that displayed a replica of the clocks in LED animated form while giving them the ability to either play with the clocks, change them, or perhaps temporarily display something else.

    I played on the practice court about a month ago and the employee that got us access said that they were replacing the scoreboard. The description he used was that it was going to be "a scaled down version of the one in Cowboys stadium". Don't know how that would work, or look, but it's good to see it upgraded.

    That would be so sweet. Hope it's pretty wide if they are comparing it to a scaled down version of Cowboys stadium!

    This is my hope too. I really want a new jumbotron. When we go to Milwaukee even though the Bradley center is a dump. I always envy those huge HD jumbotrons they have.

    Having never been there, I Googled it and found this video from when they unveiled that one. That's pretty nice looking, and that's about what I was envisioning when I first heard of them planning to upgrade ours. As many LEDs as possible for total flexibility.

    I really don't like this idea. The clocks don't take up THAT much real estate and they definitely help keep the retro feel to them. LED animated versions would just look dumb.

    But a new HD set of screens would be great. Wonder how it would affect the sightlines in the upper section if they make it bigger?

    I hadn't thought about Wifi. That would be great if it actually worked well. My cell phone signal is usually garbage when I'm inside the Fieldhouse; makes it very frustrating when I want to read/post on Twitter.

    Is it the sound system or just the building? or the combination of both.

    I've noticed it is fine if you are in the lower level, but when you get into the balcony and even the club level it is horrible.

    Definitely hoping for a new sound system. Hopefully they make the Best Locker Room larger as well. It is just too tight right now during well attended games. This is another where the crap can that is the Bradley Center is able to beat our Taj Mahal to basketball and that needs to change. The Bucks have a huge restaurant/bar/gathering area for courtside/lower level folks. The Best Locker Room is honestly unpleasant at half time just no space to move.

    Don't take me over-seriously on this but - This is what drives me nuts. I hate watching a game with people farting around on their phones instead of paying attention to what is happening on the court. I just don't get it at all.

    #@randomfan tweet: Just went to get a beer at the concession stand. Spilled it on the way back. Going to get another one. Anybody know the score?

    That makes me nuts!

    Aw well, to each their own.

    I heard they are removing the seats in sections 207-210 to create a standing-room only area complete with a 70s style disco stage and stripper poles.

    I hope not GABP is my least favorite ballpark for that reason. When I go to a baseball game I want to watch baseball too many stupid games and a play ground that affects the viewing experince for me im kind of old school in that way I am at Wrigley for the Astros series and this is how baseball show be. (other than the fact we suck and so do the Astros Old Yankee stadium was my favorite ball park out of the 12 I have seen a game in Wrigley is 2 favorite.

    I have heard the same thing about the jumbotron for a few months.

    But what about TVs around the Fieldhouse? Outdated and some don't even work.

    BLF is way too impressive to have such blurry, clunky eye sores everywhere.
