Hell when I've gone to games I've been struck at how much effort it takes from everyone to keep the stadium noisy as it seems to actually swallow the noise up, when the old stadium actively amplified whatever noise was there. Terrible acoustics. Absolutely terrible.
Yeah, I share your perspective from a fan perspective but those aren't the kinds of plans that get approved. The stadium isn't only used for football. I'm sure the strategy on architecture had a lot to do with diversity which we all have to appreciate. It needs to support itself.

That doesn't change the fan element. We can still be loud....collectively and be the 12th man. Focus Brother. Get the word out.
