Has anyone heard of what if anything the Riders plan to do in the immediate future. I know about the long range stuff (new store, more seating, upgraded restrooms, etc) but would have thought that they would get going on this while everyone is in "Rider" mode.
Slightly differently, there was an article in the Leader-Post recently throwing the idea of a domed stadium out there. I KNOW that is not going to happen any time soon but what is everyones idea on this or other upgrades? How could a new stadium be paid for? Would you be willing to pay a seat lisence fee as in the NFL? If so, how large?
Personally, I would love a new stadium that sat about 35K but expandable to 50K for Grey Cups. I don't think a dome would work here as it would not be expandable for the GC but 50K all the time would be too big (if it could be made to work, I wouldn't say no to one though). I would also be willing to pay a one time fee/donation of $500 to $1000 or a stadium fee of $10/game for 10 seasons. I would also like to see it located somewhere near the present stadium, which should be possible as they have announced that the rail-container yard and warehouses are being moved out of the city.
