I understand they're paying to have their name on the stadium, but the red is just stupid.

If you have to be in a helicopter or blimp to see it, it won't matter. The colors that the fans wear will be greater than this.

Isn't that just the sports authority colors? Obviously they will get to use their logo colors etc etc by paying the money. I could care less because football games are supposed to be just a ton of colors and a feast for the eyes. Then again I am color blind so maybe nothing looks the same to me. I can see red though! especially around this place.

Anyways.

Look, this isn't worth getting worked up about, BUT at the same time, when a division rival's colors are red, I think it's somewhat dumb to put that prominently on your stadium.

But the truth is, we'll forget the signs are even there after week 1.

But I just didn't say that without looking at the team, i really went position by position and couldnt find any matchups the Broncos would win very often.

But the oline looks slightly better, then rbs alot better, the TE way better, Doom is back, and we have Miller. Both defenders that IMO can beat any 1 blockers to the QB. You have that and you create hell for the OT and TE. We can win the matchups outside with almost any team IMO. That means offenses will have to leave rbs and TE in to help block on 3rd down. Its a very easy concept, if a TE is blocking he can't burn you down the middle. It takes pressure off your FS and coverage linebackers, now they can attack also.

We will be much better this yr IMO. We probably aren't deep enough to last the season and make playoffs, but I think we win some games this yr, get to 8-8.

If people aren't complaining, they aren't happy.

This really isn't a problem except for 1 out of every 15 years when they work themselves into an insanely weak schedule.

Should have left off "field" and just named it Sports Authority at Mile High.
Their storefronts are also all red-print on white-backdrop, which would have looked much better on Mile High.

Unless they changed their mind, I'm hoping this isn't the finished product.

This was less than a week ago.

They have to change that signage to Orange at Mile High. There is no other choice. Get it done Hickenlooper

This is legit though. We can't have red on our stadium lit in lights. This is a rivalry issue.

I don't like the red but at least it isn't on the side and it takes a blimp or help to see it. Bet it still gets changed as they already removed one sign.

The sign under the horse actually looks pretty cool.

I don't think it's whiny at all to suggest Sports Authority Field ****ed up big time on this one. I understand they paid for the rights, but come one now...giant red banners on the tops of our stadium. That's ****ing weak. Do you see giant red and silver banners atop Coors Field? No. As a matter of fact, Coors Field's signage is all outlined in purple, the teams colors.

I dunno, just think it's pretty lame on SA's part here.
