    let me state for the record, ours suck.

    the speakers in the north endzone are off, many of the lights are out, (who uses lights these days anyway?) and the screen is simply a puny joke.

    Check out the jumbotron is Seattle. Baltimore is not too bad either.

    They have said they plan to upgrade ours in a few years, but yes it does suck compared to other new stadiums. Still, that's one reason why our stadium was relatively inexpensive (as NFL stadiums go).

    Bud didn't pay for our stadium. Owners don't build their own stadiums, they convince cities and states to build it for them...

    the city would end up with the bill inevitably, but I think it is budgeted by the Nashville Sports Council, or Authority.

    Kind of like when Bud installed all of the barricades that look like planters all around the stadium, and then sent the bill to Metro.

    Not always. Robert Kraft built his own stadium. Paul Allen paid for about a third of Qwest Field.

    A few do. They are the exception to the rule, however...

    i'd much rather see us(tax payers) upgrade the collisium then pay for a baseball park that isnt a sure thing by any means.
