It seems so simple to me, but I guess the architects and engineers just can't figure it out, or they must be a lot smarter than I am.
Curious what I'm referring to? Stadiums. Football, baseball, etc. Places you go to watch sporting events at.
I can't figure out why stadium designers lay the stadiums out with such disregard for the people that will be in the stands, and with such disregard to the vendors that might service the fans sitting in those stands.
Still can't figure it out?
Here's my beef. Thanks to a very generous friend, I went to the Redskins vs. Lions game today at FedEx field. A stadium built approx. 10 years ago (for the 1997 season actually), so it is a stadium that is fairly new and should have been built with the fans in mind. The owner of the team at the time certainly thought that was the case (the dearly departed squire: Jack Kent Cooke) as he paid to have the stadium built with his own money (plus a few dollars in state of Maryland money, plus Prince Georges County money for infrastructure needs).
The current owner, Daniel Snyder, and his marketing machine claims that is the case (that fans are in mind) as he squeezes all the more fans into the stands all over the place (to the tune of approximately 92,000 fans per game, give or take a few thousand fans).
